We just came back from Playa and visited this restaurant three times, you always get a good meal!! The bar is a nice place to sit at and the people who work there are so friendly and happy. All three times we went they served us a complimentary appetizer and one of the three visits a complimentary drink. Worth visiting... More

Three of us went to dinner here one evening. We were tired and just looking for an easy bite to eat and a nice glass of wine. We ordered the Caprese Salad for an appetizer and we were very pleased with the dish, the buffalo mozzarella was fantastic. The pizza we ordered was also very good, no complaints. We were... More

Superb pizza. Great atmosphere. Better by night as great ambiance with the lights, plants, decking and water feature.

If you are craving pizza and are in Playa. I would highly recommend visiting Piola's. They have delicious pizza and drinks. Ask for the Basil Martini... YUM! It is a specialty drink, not listed on the menu. So tasty. They have several pizza options and I've also had their steak. Everything has always been excellent.

Piola always makes us happy. We were craving pizza, and feeling extremely tired after a whole day touring ruins. We felt like Piola was what we need it: we were right! No surprises, crispy skinny pizza full of familiar (delicious) flavors, lots of options. Very good Margarita, great service, nice location in a quiet spot.

Our family party of 7 ordered 3 different pizzas, each of which was delicious, plus salads, and we had ample leftovers. Our Italian waiter gave us great service, and overall it was an enjoyable and relaxing meal, perfect for a vacation--and very reasonably priced, too!

Service was excellent, but the atmosphere was closer to a bar than a restaurant. Music selection and volume was annoying, and having a conversation was difficult. About the food we all had mixed feelings. Our salmon pastas were mediocre, the salad and carpaccio were ok, but the pizza was surprisingly good. Some desserts were very good such as the apple...
