Description: In 1986, in the heart of Treviso, ITALY, a new idea takes shape: the re-invention of the most quintessential Italian establishment: the Pizzeria, that idea is now a wonderful reality called PIOLA. The success achieved in Italy by Piola has started to spread around the world: Piola’s quality is now sought after by discriminating and trend-setting international clientele in the United States, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Turkey and coming soon Honduras. At Piola, the most genuine Italian tradition of simple and delicious food combines cleverly with a particular service and ambiance for the demanding and modern customer, who chooses Piola aware of the fact that feeling comfortable is as important as eating well. People from all walks of life and backgrounds meet and gather at Piola, since they are sure to find their own space in an atmosphere that balances freedom and well being with good taste.

The pizza here is so good! I've been on the hunt for authentic italian pizza and so far this is the winner. The gnocchi was very good too! We heard italian being spoken here by other customers-- so it must be good!

While this place may not appeal to pizza lovers that enjoy the ubiquitous Domino's style pizza, Piola should appeal to those who like authentic Italian style pizza.
Simple, thin and fresh ingredients are the norm.

Good choices,Taste is great,Ambience is a typical Pizza place,Service good as well.
Only Reason for getting 4/5 is that they are slightly over priced.Would cost about 30bucks on avg. for 2.

This place is a nice place, especially for a couple. They serve unique style pizza compared to what we are used to. We bought two different pizzas because of the size. I liked one and not the other because of the taste of the ham was not what I expected and my husband liked the ham. It was a bit pricey for pizza, but had we stayed the environment was nice. It was filling but we needed a pizza per person. The person at the counter was nice but not much help on what we were ordering.
