Diner Reviews
  • "Great place! Food is very good, made with quality ingredients, even the simplest salads are delicious. I especially recommend the Tiramisu!"

  • "If you are a pizza freak, this place is for you! Bottomless pizza for $16.95 can't be beat! (And the Nutella pizza is to die for.) We arrived in the mood for food more-so-than-drinks. So, we all decided to get bottomless pizza and share a pitcher of Bellini (which was also cheap at 15 dollars and gave us about two drinks apiece). Definitely recommend this place for a low-key weekend brunch."

  • "Very disappointed. Food tasted like it was frozen, gross chain food and just poor quality. Not fresh ingredients, very disappointed. Service was nice but food was bad. Won't be back."

  • "I went to Piola DC for Valentine's Day and my wife enjoyed it. They had complimentary champagne and chocolate covered strawberries for us. The tables were candle lit and the ambiance was romantic on the top level than the bottom. The food was very good and their menu is unique. I would recommend this place to anyone who likes pizza and wants a nice modern ambiance while they're enjoying their food."

  • "I thoroughly enjoyed my brunch experience at Piola! My party was sat immediately, the food was quickly made and tasted very good. When extra friends decided to join, the accommodation was made quickly and without any hassle. The drink tasted good and it was very nice having more than one choice. We will definitely be back!"

  • "Went for all you can eat pizza brunch and was fantastic. Service left a lot to be desired though - servers were very slow and at times very rude, despite the fact that they were not busy. Also, they had a rule that we could only have 1 carafe at a time (but a certain amount of people had to be there to even to get a carafe) for the bottomless deal, but then took forecer to bring a new one."

  • "I have been to Piola several times for the bottomless brunch and have always had excellent service and food was. This time was a different story. I could see our drinks sitting up on the bar waiting to be delivered. Our server passed us numerous times without stopping to get drink refills or place another pizza order. Without warning, our server told us it was after 3 and brunch was over. When questioned why he didn't warn us he told us it was on the menu, which it wasn't, and that he was busy with a bigger party upstairs. The manager came to talk to us, was apologetic, and did bring us another round. I would like to go back but maybe after some of the servers turnover."

  • "The great DC pizza drought is finally over! With the arrival of Piola, Ghibellina, Etto, and Matchbox to 14th in 2013, this Italian-American transplant from NY has died and gone to heaven. Every place I've listed here (and let's not forget neighborhood veteran, Posto) has it's own specific charm and vibe. The commonality is that each produces quality neapolitan/brick/wood-fired oven style pizza. It just depends on what suits your specific tastes. The atmosphere at Piola is casual/neighborhoody. The servers, friendly and relaxed. Prices, moderate for this 'hood. Pizzas, pastas, and deserts are all very solid. That's a great feat! Salads are so-so in my book. Piola earns extra points for it's sheer variety of pizza options. Try the San Paulo!"

  • "I love this place for their bottomless mimosa and pizza brunch!!"
    Dined on 10/20/2013
  • "We had a great time at Piola. It was a large group of us at brunch and the all you can eat pizza was perfect. We could share pizzas, keep ordering, and try everything. Our waiter was super helpful and very attentive. The pizzas were great- especially the Salmon one. Definitely going back!"
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "Piola has not only great pizza, but really healthy salads with good homemade dressings. The lunch deal of a pizza and salad combo was great."
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "Their brunch deal is a steal at $16 for all you can eat pizza and $15 all you can drink breakfast cocktails. They're amazing for groups as they have a big table by the window on the 2nd floor that can easily fit 15-20 people. Also, the breakfast cocktails are made with fresh made juice -- I had never had a mimosa with fresh-squeezed orange juice and now I don't know if I can go back! The pizzas are all solid and I loved the Breakfast in Beirut plate! Also you can't go wrong with Nutella pizza. Both times we came the service was great - highly recommended!"

  • "Our party of three ordered three different pizzas and they all were absolutely delicious. My Italian wife (who every time a new pizzeria opens in DC is eager to try it, quite often leaving disappointed) was amazed by the quality of the dough and the real thin crust (perfect for those who love the Roman style of pizza, not the Neapolitan one). She ordered pizza Como, with porcini mushrooms and prosciutto crudo. The prosciutto is added AFTER the pizza is out from the oven not before, as it should always be done. We are surprised by some negative reviews: we would return again and again, to try them all (except the Honolulu one, which in fact should not be in any Italian menu....!). Upstair is much quiter than downstairs."

  • "Ladies and gentlemen, even if you are not the brunch type, you MUST make reservations for a Saturday or Sunday Bottomless Pizza Brunch at Piola. The cocktails are individually made, the pizza is baked to perfection, and there is plenty of variety from you to switch around and try different drinks and pizza creations. You will not regret this. I will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 10/13/2013
  • "Our meal consisted of two different pizzas, a chicken entrée, and salads. The salads were at best ordinary, the chicken entrée was reasonably good although the sauce was quite thick, but the two pizzas were simply terrible with poor quality toppings. I will not be returning."
    Dined on 10/4/2013
  • "We arrived at Piiola not knowing what to expect from an international chain. We were pleasantly surprised that the pizzas looked and tasted like the better pizzas we ate while traveling in Italy. Pies are nicely cooked, with a crisp crust, and are moderately topped. A regular-sized pizza and a drink made for a satisfying meal. One difference between this branch of Piola and an Italian pizzeria is the sound level: Piola is much louder, thanks to an extremely loud and lively bar whose din carries to the dining room upstairs. Service was responsive and efficient."
