Piazza by Anthony

Piazza by Anthony in the historic Leeds Corn Exchange is a venue we visit for lunch on a semi-regular basis, they serve some very well executed dishes at a price that is more than reasonable for the quality of food on offer.

On our latest visit to the Piazza our meal consisted of:

Pancetta and Asparagus with Poached Egg and Hollandaise

Smoked Haddock and Pea Gnocchi

Moules Mariniere served with Bread from the Piazza bakery

The bread and finger bowl that accompanies the moules

A bottle of the house Sauvignon Blanc

Given the time of year I couldn't resist choosing the Asparagus starter and it didn't let me down, beautiful asparagus with a perfectly poached egg, hollandaise and pancetta is such a great combination and this was well executed.

My partner loves Gnocchi and had high praise for the smoked haddock and pea gnocchi served here.

For our mains we both had a large bowl of the moules mariniere, which I have visited Piazza specifically for on previous occasions, it is such a wonderful summery dish. To be quite truthful the intention was to not have starters, just a bowl of moules mariniere each with a bottle of wine to share, which in my mind on a day with some sunshine comes very close to the perfect lunch.

Piazza is fully deserving of it's Bib Gourmand, there is a lack of places serving the level of quality at the price point Piazza offers, one of the highlights of the Leeds dining out scene no doubt at all.
