The only Italian offering I can lay my eye on from the Italian sounding La Piazza is the option to have your ham slapped into a Ciabatta. The old lady serving immediately asks if I'd like onions, butter, & mayonnaise, I opt for the latter two. After scurrying around behind the counter for a short while I also accept the option for salt & pepper, none of which I detect on eating.
Down to eating the sandwich & it looks an impressive sight; packed with lettuce, cucumber & tomato, held together with a liberal amount of mayo. As I munched through the first half I happily spied some grated carrot, although it appears this is a rogue addition as no more is found in the other half of the sandwich. The bread however is slightly dry, but this may have been down to my choice of bread, the only other thing I found letting down this big hitter was just 1 slice of ham, although at £2.55 standard price the quality was good.
