Piola is quickly becoming
Piola is quickly becoming a favorite! The food is great, service is friendly and efficient, and the atmosphere is relaxed. Great for a night out with your significant other or for a group of friends. All you can eat Gnocchi is amazing - you can sample 10 different sauces in 1 evening (just make sure to pace yourself!). Roka Cabana salad is fantastic and large enough to share. Carpaccio Aida is very good and the pizzas are great! They also have awesome specials throughout the week to make a night out more affordable.

Great Italian spot on Queen West
Super yummy pizza, great drinks, can accommodate groups and even families! Reasonably priced. Really enjoy Piola! Also LOVE that they take reservations (unlike other Italian places on Queen).

We loved everything about
We loved everything about our visit at Piola. The chef came out to meet us and ask how our meals were and we had a wonderful chat. It showed he cared and our server Allysia was one of the best we have encountered. She was attentive, happy, easy to talk to and just an overall lovely lovely person.The food was fabulous!!!!

All you can eat GNOCHI!
I know, it seems crazy. But it's amazing. Piola's gnochi is not heavy at all, and they pass around with 10+ flavors for degustation.

Outstanding Food and Service
Great fresh Italian food, no premade deep dish pizza here, and the gnocchi was exceptional. I will definitely be returning.

Reliable neighbourhood spot
The pizzas are always crispy, the salads and apps are creative and the service is consistently solid. The evening we went recently featured half price wine bottles as the Leaf game was on! How great was that.....

pizza and pasta at good prices
Walked in on a cool rainy June night and would have walked right out again if not for the weather. Reason for my apprehension was the big tv's behind the bar and the sparse number of patrons, oh and the decor. Very formulaic, felt like I was in an airport restaurant waiting for a flight. I just expected it to be swankier. the menus were a bit sticky and then the waiter came over to tell us about the really cheap bar drinks and pitchers...I really wanted it to book it out of there. I looked around and saw that every table was filled with early 20 somethings drinking pitchers. I was hungry and so was my husband who told me I was acting a bit spoiled. we stayed. and wow!!! the food was terrific!! really enjoyed every bite. yum. we will be back

Fantastic food, great service, and overall surprise. Loved every minute of it. Went for Father's Day and my dad really enjoyed himself and actually liked the food. Rivals the great Eataly in NYC and Italy the country. Will be back again.

Gnocci Night Done Right
We visited the restaurant for "Lucky Gnocci Night" which takes place on the 29th of each month and we loved it. The sauces were fantastic, service was impeccable and we all left "rolling" out of the restaurant (we were stuffed). It was an awesome experience and one I look forward to attending next month as well. Keep up the good work.

We really like this restaurant, it was our third time back. The food is always great and the staff are friendly and sociable. It was all-you-can-eat gnocchi night and although every different version of gnocchi was good, just too much for one person to eat, but it was fun. We will continue going back, it's now one of our favorite restaurants.

Great food and great service. Now we have a place to go before going to theatres in the area, as pickings were looking slim before we found Piola.

Everything about Piola is A++
Staff was pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.
Atmosphere was comfortable, very clean and nicely decorated.
Music was at a comfortable volume, and conversations were held, without raising voices.
Food tasted great! We had 2 pizza's, 2 pasta dishes, 2 desserts, an espresso and a latte.
Flavors of each individual dish was seasoned and cooked to perfection!
The espresso was a bit strong for my liking; I prefer a strong bean, as opposed to a weak bean, but I still enjoyed my latte.
We also checked into via Foursquare and was surprised to receive a notification of 10% off our bill, so that was a nice added touch.
Overall, we will be coming back to Piola again.
Thanks for a great experience throughout!

The sign on the door said they were famous for their pizza, and they were right. it was absolutely delicious. Very flavorful and perfectly cooked. made you want more with each bite. i as well tried their pasta special of rigatone a la vodka with pancetta that was as well phenomenal. very rich tasty sauce with crispy bites of pancetta. the service was fine but i found rather inattentive and it was hard to get the attention of our server when we needed it. if you like old school italian food, i highly recommend giving piola a try!
