Great food and service, everyone enjoyed their food. There was a wedding party nearby (outside patio) and it was a little noisy, but really enjoyed the patio ambience.

Piola is a local gem and has charm and great service. I went for my birthday to try it for the first time and was overall impressed, although I did find some of the food lacking. You have to order garlic bread separately and it looks like the frozen kind from the bag. Also, the crab cakes were small and over fried, I think I even somehow tasted bone fragments but no real or fresh crab was detected. I would not order that again. The goat cheese bruschetta was good, that was the best part of the meal. My friend wanted to order something without mushrooms but was told no because the veggies were already premade together? Overall, the food just does not warrant the price or the ambiance of what the place could be.

The food and ambiance is excellent, always has been. They could use a dedicated bartender, but I’m nitpicking, it’s a gem of Fort Worth.

Food was Outstanding. We were seated next to the cash register which was annoying. Next time we'll request a table on the other side of the dining area. Our server was ok, not really sure that she was that excited to be there working. We enjoyed 1 appetizer, 1 soup, 2 glasses of wine, 2 entrees and shared a desert with tip it came to $100. I would highly recommend Piola.

Our dinner on the patio was wonderful! Love the ambiance. Calamari here is one of our favorites ever! We had the Bolognese last night and it was delicious, we ate every single bite! Our friends had the Buffalo meatball entree and they loved it, no leftovers for our table. Highly recommend!

Absolutely awful service. 6:15 reservation and arrived on time. Tables we without any napkins, silverware and no server for nearly 10 minutes. Ordered a simple gin gimlet up. 10 minutes later the wrong drink. Still no water. 10 minutes later the wrong drink again. Ordered food. 10 minutes later no sign of anyone so we left. And there were only 3 other tables occupied. It will be a LONG time before I consider returning.

Delicious food, adorable atmosphere! We were seated on the back patio, where there were lights strung overhead and greenery surrounding the pavilion. They were kind enough to prepare a dessert for us even after the kitchen was closed! Loved supporting this family-run business.

Fantastic as always, I just wish the server had told us about the specials. We were offered only the standard menu and 15 minutes later she is reading specials to a table within earshot.
