Dined here one night during our stay in Arlington. Short walk from our hotel. Sat outside on a nice balmy evening. Ordered a pizza and meatballs - both delicious. Recommended.

It was early Friday evening when we visited which happened to be during Happy Hour so we might be biased; drink specials and $7.89 for ANY pizza-unbelievable! And the food and drinks were awesome! Had we paid full price it might have been a 4 instead of a 5, but still worth finding this place! Casual atmosphere, extensive pizza selection,... More

I've never been disappointed by a pizza at Piola, and I've had a variety of them. Get there during their happy hour and the pizzas are just $8.99.

Sit at the bar, get free appetizers and pizzas. Get there around 4pm to get a seat at the bar and while you're drinking, waiters will bring around free samples of apps and pizzas...eat to your hearts content.

If you are in the neighborhood at lunch time, Piola offers half portions of pasta with a substantial salad for about $10. It's quite good and the price is right.

We were able to sit outside in a covered area, which was very pleasant. The pizzas that we ordered (the moderno and the greco) were very delicious! The crust was thin and crispy, and the rest of the pizza was filled with flavor. Our waitress was attentive and kind, which supplemented the great food.

I had a hard time choosing from among the wide variety of 12-inch individual pies that Piolo offers, but ultimately settled on the Copenhagen--a thin crust pizza without tomato sauce, topped with mozzarella, brie, and smoked salmon. The pie paired wonderfully with a Clayhouse Cabernet Sauvignon and was definitely a contender for the best pizza I've ever had. No matter... More

Delicious, simple pizza. A great balance of crust, sauce, and toppings. I've had two pizzas here and both were great. Good happy hour caipirinha, too.

My wife and I both had pasta and it was very good. The weather was warm and we sat outside - the only slight problem was the noise from the aircraft which kept going over. Would go again if we are ever in the area.

A fine place to grab some pizza or pasta. Not fast food pizza, which is becoming pretty common. Nice chewy crust. Lots of great options. A bit on the high side, price wise, for lunch. But, you're worth it, right?

Thank valzebub
