Andy's Restaurant Scorecard: Cafe Piazza's Perfect 100 - WMC Action News 5 - Memphis, Tennessee

Andy's Restaurant Scorecard: Cafe Piazza's Perfect 100, plus scores

(WMC TV) - The little house along the railroad tracks near Collierville's Town Square just earned a perfect score.

Cafe Piazza, 139 S. Rowlett St., achieved an 100 on its Dec. 6 Memphis-Shelby County Department of Health inspection. It's our Scorecard High Score of the Week.

"Just keep it simple, keep it clean," said Cafe Piazza's owner Pat Lucchesi. "(We value good) customer service and put out a good, quality consistent product. That's what we try for."

"The food is delicious," said regular customer Joy Henry of Germantown, TN. "The wait staff is very personable, very clean. It's just a nice place."

Cafe Piazza first hit the Scorecard's hot list in 2009, when our viewers voted it Best Pizza.

That same year, Memphis Magazine selected Cafe Piazza for Best Salads.

Specialty pizzas, salads, pasta dishes and homemade desserts -- served with smiles in an atmosphere that feels like you're dining by a best friend's bay window.

"It's just the perfect ladies lunch place," said Germantown's Michelle Patton. "It's great!"

WHAT ANDY LIKES:  BLT Pizza, The South Pizza (BBQ Pork), Pollo Alfredo Pizza, Chicken Ravioli, Artichoke Cheese Dip, All of the Homemade Cakes!
