This was our second trip to Piola--our first was on our last visit 3 years ago, and it was just as good the second time as it was the first. The pizzas are delicious, with a huge variety and selection, thin crust and delicious sauces. The salads are fresh and wonderful. They also have an unusual Brazilian cut of steak... More

We wouldn't have expected to enjoy Italian food in Mexico but this vibrant restaurant had great food and fun energy - we ate here twice during our 6-night stay and referred it to other guests at our hotel who equally enjoyed their experience. We will be back!

It is located at the beginning of 5th Avenida. You may choose there many kinds of pizza and pasta. On 5th Avenida there is a lot of Italian restaurants but this one was still full of people which guarantees you that you should eat fresh meal.

We had great service, the drinks were wonderful and the food delicious... What more could you ask for. Very good Italy food at a very fair price! We had the sausage ravioli with mushroom sauce Andrew chicken parm...both wonderful and plenty to eat. We left full and very p.eased with the value.

A late lunch in Playa. We discovered Piola last year and in the mood for a pizza and salad, treked down Avenida Cinco to Calle 34 for another wonderful meal at Piola. Pizza is very thin crust and was delicious. With a salad (definitely big enough to share) and a beer (or in the case of my wife, a glass... More
