  • "We asked for a table for 17, college kids and chaperones and they had it all set up when we got there, food was reasonable and delicious, and the waitress was great, even did separate checks for everyone since they were all on individual budgets. Couldn't have been better!"

  • "Pretty good italian pizza - nothing special, but good. I didn't know that this was a chain (Italy, US, Canada, Turkey, and lots of Latin American countries) until I got there. Ambience is nothing special but it's fine."

  • "Very impressed with both the salad and pizza. Delicious!"

  • "Multiple varieties and all are amazing. Be adventurous! Caitupiry cheese is a staple in Brazil so if you only go once, get Caitupiry cheese on your pizza!"

  • "GREAT service. Restaurant was not busy (Sunday late afternoon/early evening) and server was attentive, knowledgeable, and courteous. We had 2 young, energetic boys with us too and everyone was accommodating. =)"

  • "We LOVE the pizza at this restaurant. We live in Silver Spring but will drive all the way to Arlington for them. My husband comes here to get close-to-home pizza with the cheese he loves so much from Brazil. This time, I got the rolled bacon stuffed with gorgonzola cheese pizza. Whoa!! The strawberry caipiroskas are fabulous, too. It's really hard to find GOOD and authentic Brazilian caipirinhas (made with cachaca) and caipiroskas (made with vodka). I was in heaven with these. I wish they made dessert pizzas, like in Brazil. I've ordered dessert a couple of times there, and both times was disappointed with the weird, metallic flavor of the chocolate sauce. I also didn't like the TV in the main dining area playing a basketball game."

  • "Stranded in Washington during this past snowstorm (PAX) at a hotel with no food service: cab service was non-existent; had to walk to the restaurant; first it was the only place open for blocks: crowded great atmosphere: stayed most of the evening; best selection of pizza anywhere: great service and it made a gloomy day bright!"

  • "Sampled two marinara, one calzone, and one white sauce pizza, all were wonderful!"

  • "With so many distinct pizza combinations on the menu, it seems a bit silly to not allow customers to design their own."

  • "Incredibly friendly and polite wait staff. Was relatively quiet for a Saturday night at dinner time. The menu is long -- lots of good options, but so many that it's difficult to navigate. Food is reasonably priced. Portions are standard. Food tasted good -- though pizza dough came out a little soggy though. One quirk: You have to request parmesan cheese, which is rationed by the server (they don't leave it on the table)."

  • "Gnocchi night was great as usual. I wish the gnocchi would come out more quickly, but this speed allows you to talk and enjoy your group's company, not just shovel food on your mouth."

  • "The server was friendly and provided perfect service. The salad was amazing, and the vegetarian pizza 151 with mozarella was very good plus there were so many options! Piolo is not far from the Rosslyn metro, and they validate parking so it only costs $3."
    Dined on 10/28/2013
  • "Piola is a nice casual restaurant to meet friends. Our group of four ordered three individual pizzas and one pasta dish. We also split a salad to start. I wouldn't say the meal is anything extraordinary, but it's good food and you can't go wrong with half priced wine on Monday nights!"

  • "Friendly efficient service couldn't overcome tasteless pizza and soggy ingredients. House Chianti was flat and odd tasting. Atmosphere was early bus station."
