Best pizza in town!

We have never had anything else other Han the pizzas here but in our opinion these are the best pizzas in town. We always come here at least a couple times when in playa! They are thin crust and there are so many varieties to choose from! Reasonable prices too.

Located at 38th and 5th. Here's a chance to enjoy Italian pizza in a beautiful Playa del Carmen setting. The menu is extensive with many, many choices of pizza, pasta, etc. The staff is courteous and the prices are fair. You can't go wrong!

We stumbled on this little gem of a restaurant down a side street, off of 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen. Wonderful pizza, complimentary yummy Bruschetta, and conscientious friendly staff. Relaxed setting with tables under a canopy of trees and roofing. Fair pricing vs many of the "gouge the tourists" restaurants on the main street. Wonderful experience and we will... More

The staff was very friendly, polite, and helpful. On a warm evening, they adjusted a fan to provide us with a cooling breeze. The first time we ate there the waitress chased me down to return money that I had dropped while paying my bill. The food was delicious overall, but the calzone was my favorite with ham, artichoke, cheese... More

We shared a pasta and a pizza sitting outside. We really like the feel of this place and our server was nice. However this is a chain restaurant, and as you might expect the food was decent but nothing special. With so many other highly rated Italian restaurants near by we wouldn't recommend wasting a meal here.

We were at Piola last january and were awfully treated. First we had to wait long time for a table, the manager seemed tired and in a bad mood since he didn´t even greeted us at the entrance. Then we were asked to move to a different table which was really annoying and he was really rude on his manners.... More

The food here is consistently good, pizza is very authentic to what you`d find in Italy. The basil martini is tasty and very refreshing. They have a very extensive menu, with good variety and decent prices. I really like the area it`s situated in, Coco Beach, and the ambiance of the place is great..
