Calamari was amazing but the Buffalo meatballs were not as impressive. We loved our salads.

Piola was so great for my wife and I last Friday. Service was outstanding, food was perfect, wife had the grouper special and I had the lasagna, with cappuccino cake and coffee. Everything was great, safe, and distanced. Can’t wait to go back!

Absolutely amazing and authentic Italian dinner in such a relaxed venue. My girlfriend and I were literally looking at each other like 🤯🤯 followed by 🤤🤤. The food was hands down some of the best I’ve had in my life, not to mention Fort Worth, I had the lobster ravioli and the vodka sauce was unbelievably delicious and the raviolis were just as good if not somehow even better! My girlfriend had the shrimp scampi with lemon butter sauce and it looked like she was about to pick up the dish and start drinking the sauce after she ate all the pasta and shrimp. Oh! And the calamari was to die for. Not like your typical fried calamari the breading was rich, flavorful and the calamari was cooked to perfection. Never had calamari like that and don’t think I’ll ever find anywhere else that does it that well ever again!! I’m really not the type to write a lot of reviews but this place immediately became one of those “we are definitely coming back” kind of places. All I can say is thank you to the staff and chef and our wonderful waitress, Leandra, for a special night. I cannot recommend this place enough.

It was our first time and we sat inside but they have a nice patio area with heaters. We enjoyed the experience and were treated very well. The downfall was that I expected the food to astound me and it didn’t. It’s obvious the chef puts a lot of effort in the dishes but at least what I tried didn’t wow me. The cappuccino pie on the other hand was amazing, though.

I came here with my family who was in town for the weekend. The food was delicious but we could hardly have a conversation at our table because of how loud the restaurant was. There was a huge birthday party in one section of the room whose volume overtook the whole room. At times the party members came out of the room and crowded near our table. No one was practicing social distancing. I left the restaurant with a sore throat from having to yell just for the people at my table to be able to hear me.
