Plethora of pizzas!

Piola has a variety of pizzas. Their pizza isn't 'Americanized' though, so don't expect Pizza Hut or Domino's here. Try their Margherita pizza. It's not a heavy pizza and very tasty.

This is by far one of the best Pizza made with fresh ingredients and baked in a wood oven giving it a very distintive flavor.

Great everyday sort of food and a lovely location. Visited twice, pizza and pasta much better than meat dishes which were a bit on the rich side.

For years now, Piola has set the standard for pizza in Playa, and arguably many other places. Both the pizza and pasta menu are huge and the Service is always great. If you like you pizza crust extra thin and crispy, and your slices with loads of flavor, you won't be sorry eating here.... And if you like a frozen... More

We stopped here for lunch and shared 2 different 10" pizzas. One was pepperoni and Parma ham and the other pepperoni, chorizo and sausage. We both agreed the Parma Hama pizza was awesome. The ham gave it such a good flavor. The sauce had a real good flavor too.

Had dinner here twice this year and once last year when we discovered it. I initially was told this place had great pizza. Right! Traveled to New York and Chicago often so I know good pizza.

With a lot of restaurants they are inconsistent from each visit each year. Piola it is always consistent. All the pizzas are amazing. Nice atmosphere outside on the patio.

Fresh restaurant place with vegetation and bar. Cozy and casual for families. Famous by it extended options in pizzas, pasta, salads. Great cocktails and drinks. Other stuff less famous are beef, chicken and fish. Great service, always full of clients. Sr Coconut music :). Nice portions of dishes. Italian style of pizza, slim bread or optional to make it thicker.

The pizzas here are simply of great quality and you can choose from an extensive menu to cater for all tastes. Nice to eat in, but equally you can take away and eat at leisure in your apartment etc. You can also have a nice cold beer while you wait ;)
