We turned up at 17.45 and the restaurant was empty, we were a party of 15, 4 of which were children. We asked for a table and the staff were extremely rude and they refused entry on the basis that they didn’t want us to get up and move around tables (which we weren’t planning on doing) during service, we asked for tables to be put together to create a big table and were refused and told it was forbidden. We promptly left and took our money else where. I do not recommend at all. Ever.

The restaurant was empty, they turned away a group of 15 as they said they didn’t want us to move between tables, never once suggested making a table for the group of us instead of giving us lots of small tables. Dealt with very badly, rudely and one of the strangest examples of bad customer service I’ve experienced. I’ve worked in restaurants and hotels and was shocked by getting shooed out the door and ignored by staff who didn’t care. We took our money else where. I’d recommend you do the same.

Stopped in on a Monday evening when few restaurants were open, and along with the locals, we were not disappointed. An innovative salad of chicory, spinach, truffles and Parmesan was just right. And the burrata pizza, although not too crisp, was tasty. Reasonably priced also.

Nice pizzeria/ristorante in the beautiful ‘Scheepvaartkwartier’ near the river Maas in Rotterdam. High quality pizza’s and great starters at reasonable prices.

A little (terrible) experience. The owner of this place, last week, has pretended to teach us the way a child has to be educated: he has said to my wife: "it is better if you don't get back to this restaurant in the future, because the tone of the voice of your son is too high for my standard". This words.

The gentleman didn't say something during the dinner. But just in the end. When we had already ordered everything and paid. Very kind, i have to admit. And very professional, above all. Let's consider, Furthermore, that the restaurant was quite empty and the only table that was nearby us was enjoyed by a young couple who played with our son for the all dinner. And with a great pleasure.

So, considering that the real "Pizza" is a concept a little bit far from the one you can eat there and the wine list includes very few bottles (and from the one we ordered just one bottle was available, but we discovered this when we ordered the second one, of corse).

Considering all this, if you really really want to make a reservation to La Pizza, please, at least, before calling, let's check the tone of your voice. Let's be sure that it is very low. Otherwise the gentleman on the door, in the end of your beutiful evening, can ask you to don't get back an other time in front of him. Because he cannot be disturbed.
