This was our first time to Piola but certainly not the last. The service was excellent, the food was exceptional and Stella was delightful ! We had a delicious salad (can't remember the name Roka?), a mushroom / goat cheese pizza, and chicken rolled with ricotta cheese and spinach! It was AMAZING ! The service was fantastic and on the...

This was walking distance from the hotel and the food was very good. We wanted to go back and try it again but ran out of time. The pizza is all home made and very different. The salads were very interesting and good too.

We had pizza here and it was great! There is a pretty broad selection of off-the-beaten-track toppings and styles. The decor is kinda eclectic and warm. Very clean. Would definitely go back.

We came in for dinner the night before my fathers surgery, we were seated inside. They were slow for a Thursday night but we were there a little after 5 so the dinner rush hadn't started. Will was great. The food was good and on Thursday it is ladies night so my mom and I got our food half off.... More

I had a $25 gift certificate from restaurants.com for Piola, so we decided to give it a try. Wow, what a great experience. Their pizzas are thin crust like we experienced in Italy and their choices of ingredients is great. Although advertised as 'personal 12" pizzas', the 3 in our party ordered 2 pizzas and we had leftovers to take... More

As a child, Sunday mornings were spent helping my mother make gnocchi for our lunch. Wherever I find them on the menu, I am likely to order them. The ones at Piola, and the sauce on them, were indistinguishable from homemade. Don't get me wrong, we've had some very good and creative plates (as well as some horrible "facsimiles") elsewhere,...

Great first time to this place. It definitely won't be my last! Enjoyed a pizza with caramelized onions, goat cheese, and pancetta. Also enjoyed a pasta dish. Then came the desserts! The profiteroles were great, as was the tiramisu.Our server offered great suggestions for our first time here. I am impressed.

My husband and I stopped by Piola on Monday, prompted by the coupons we received in the mail a few months ago. I was so pleased. Our server Jimmy was fabulous. I waited tables for 5 years and can honestly say that it was some of the best service I've received in a long time. We ordered two salads and... More

A party of three, we were there after 1 p.m. on a Tues, when there were few customers. Our waiter, Travor, gave us very nice attention through the whole meal, offering opinions and suggestions when asked, and making the whole experience extremely pleasant. We shared a large pizza, two salads (Greek and Brazilian--the latter better by a good margin), and... More
