Amazing pizzas and drinks here! The bartenders are great, but the service is a little slow. Make sure you go to the bar and try the froZen basil martini or the cucumber, they are beautiful and fun to drink. Every pizza we had there came out fresh and delicious and we have eaten there on each trip down to playa.

We have eaten here in the past many times and always received quality pizza. We stopped last week expecting the same. That is not what we got. We love thin crust pizza. This pizza was way too thin. It was so thin that the crust could not even support the toppings. The entire pie flopped over and all topping plopped... More

We had a very disappointing time at Piolas last night. We ordered drinks and only one came. We then ordered it again and it still did not come. We had planned to stay for dinner and had menus but no one came to take our order. The staff were all standing together chatting....had to get up to ask for a... More

Great pizza place in calle 38 right near the beach access. It has an open space concept that is ideal for the weather and creates an enjoyable atmosphere. The pizza we ordered was large and more than filling for the two of us. It is around the corner of a lot of great restaurants too!

Stopped here one late night. The place was crowded and service was slow. Drinks were expensive. While many different pizza options, nothing stood out as exceptional. Cool atmosphere, but likely better food elsewhere.

I had a very nice evening in Piola, the pizza is thin and cooked with wood which makes it tasty. We had their hawaian version and it was good with some craft beer. We also had a Strudel slice with vanilla ice and espresso to close the deal. The food is not out of the ordinary but the atmosphere and... More

Set in one of the more pleasant areas of Playa's fifth avenue, this restaurant absolutely serves the best pizza we have tried in Playa. The large pizza is more than enough for two, with a great selection. However, the restaurant is popular and can get busy with a certain kind of tourist that feels the need to screech to one... More

Piola’s is an inexpensive Italian restaurant up on 38 Calle about 200 ft east of 5th Avenue. I love coming to this restaurant because my kids will pick up the tab, what a value. This is some of the best thin crusted pizza in Playa. The wait staff has always been a little bit thin. Hence, the service can be... More

Food was good but the service was NOT. Our waitress looked miserable the entire time, and provided us with crappy service. She also got our order wrong and didn't even apologize or make any adjustments to the bill. Won't be going back again.
