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.

Beautiful interior, nice, relaxing and upscale decor. Service was great without being intrusive. Food had really good flavor, and was nicely presented. Wine selection was good, although a bit pricey. We will definitely return.

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.

I ordered the salmon and it was seriously the worst ever. Pretty positive it wasn't salmon. It was thin, white and way overcooked and not sure what it was. Sent it back and got Eggplant Parmesan and very disappointing also. Only about two thin slices of eggplant and the rest all cheese. The worst $400 ever spent!

Was our first brine and loved the place, the food and service. Will be back..!
Only will ask to be a little cooler 1-2 degrees. And will be great for the owner to put a sign to keep the voice and naughty normal , not like si loud ladies celebrating something and we’re annoying. But the restaurant great.

Some of our food (the large calamari and the flourless cake) were very good. Other plates (the mussels and veal) were weak. Lots of service mishaps. And a DEAFENING birthday celebration at tables nearby that destroyed our long-anticipated night out. We loved the look of the place but the experience was just shy of disaster.

We enjoy Piola for its food and ambiance but especially for its gluten-free offerings. Both our teenage kids are GF (Celiac disease, though it's not severe), and they can find appetizers, salads, entrees, and desserts--something we don't get most places! The GF options are very good, so we can enjoy a meal as a family despite these dietary restrictions.

Very good food and excellent service! Everything we ordered was outstanding. We were celebrating so we were there along time. We never felt rushed and they were very respectful of our needs. They were attentive without being overbearing. We can't wait to go again.
