We walked up the hill from our hotel on the recommendation of staff because the pizza is great. The menu however offers much more and to our pleasure the Spaghetti alla Carbonara was perfect and the serving size correct. Sitting out, alfresco was not Neopolitan but very relaxing after a day of touring in D.C.

Food good; nice beer selection; friendly but unobtrusive staff. For those who prefer to feel the weather, there is a nice sheltered outdoor dining area. It had the feel of a neighborhood bar with folks of all ages -- including families and solo book worms.

Our family of 16 had a delicious meal at Piola. The wood fired pizzas were very different and unique. The combinations made for a great pizza! Others in our group got gnocchi which they also said was delicious. They also had a good caipirhina if you like that drink. The place was fun and noisy when we were there due... More

Been coming here for years. My personal favorite pizza is the Lisbona. However, I was here most recently for drinks and they were expensive and not great which is why we moved on. A more attractive afternoon happy hour might do wonders for business.

The place was recommened by the staff at our hotel. Visit was the evening of June 13. We were seated promptly but after that things seems to go in slow motion. Their pizza menue is more European in nature, meaning most of the pizzas come with only two or three items. Also don't even think of asking for a substitution.... More

Excellent options on the menu and friendly staff. The pizza with prosciutto is awesome. No beer on tap but enough selection and the food comes quick. Good atmosphere and family friendly.

We walked in and there might have been 4 tables total (including the patio) there on a Sunday night. After asking for a booth-type seat it took FOREVER for someone to acknowledge us. When she finally did it took even longer to get drinks from her. They were out of the beer we wanted and couldn't seem to get water... More
