I don´t usually enjoy Italian food but this is definitely a great place to go. There pizza is delicious! And the habanero hot sauce they have in a green wine bottle.
The place is the cutest, with colorful chairs and big glass colorful lamps create a very nice ambience that make you forget you are on one of the biggest streets downtown Cancun, where they is usually traffic.
The service is magnificient, We were actually 2 but sitting in a table for 4, it was like 2 tables one by the other. When we had finished our dinner, the waiter approached us and aked us if he could take one of the tables because the restaurant was getting pretty full.
We absolutely had no problem with him taking the table, but had to take my purse wich was on one of the chairs and since the waiter was there I asked him to hand me my purse and ordered the check.
The waiter must have felt we where leaving because he took the table. Because less than 2 minutes after the manager came to our table to apologize for taking the table, even thought we explained we were leaving to catch a movie he insisted we stayed a little longer, chated with us a bit and sent over the most amazing chocolate mousse either of us had ever tried.
I find this to be outstanding customer service and definitely sets the bar for other restaurants.

We were hungry, and we were looking for some Italian kind restaurant, unfortunately we haven´t have any reference for any, we saw this one and decide to try, great result ! we spend a happy moment, people is very nice, pizzas and pastas are delicious, they have also a good assortment of wines. You can visit it, for having dinner, or to spend some time with a nice drinks. Nest time in Cancun we will visit it !!

Since the only authentic Italian Restaurant in Cancun (La bertilla) closed last month..we have been looking for something similar.
Found it Pizza wise..but really didnt enjoy the uncomfortable rainbow coloured wooden benches or Metal Chairs near the loud Intersection with heavy Traffic.
Will order the Pizza to take out next time....eventhough it was about 50% more expensive than other comparable Pizzas.

We were in Cancun for one night to see a Pionero's professional basketball game. We were staying at the Ibis hotel across the driveway was Piola. We were pressed for time & figured we would give it a try. What a wonderful find! The decor is bright, upbeat, funky & fun, We had beef tartar, an arugala salad & pizza with ricotta, fresh tomatoes & arugula. The ingredients were so fresh. You could taste the quality of ingredients in every bite. We have been back & were not even staying near by. It was excellent once again!
