About

We at Pizzaiolo believe that the simple act of feeding people is at the core of what it is to be human. We focus on the ritual of taking life from the world around us and presenting it to you to sustain your own life.

When the day is done, the thinking that seems to matter most is that we are taking part in a web of human interaction. The food you eat at Pizzaiolo is 100% down-home human-made.

Amazing Pizza, this is going to be my go to Pizza / Bread location every visit to the area. I want a standing reservation. Strong cocktail list and handcrafted. Appreciated the General Manager working the floor and checking in with us as well.

The restaurant was empty - I’ve eaten here since it opened and have never seen it so empty. Apparently Charlie Hallowell is not taking any money from the restaurant right now so come eat here! It isn’t the same without the customers... and the employees are suffering.

As usual, Pizzaiolo did not disappoint. Pizza was delish, pork ragu with pappardelle was excellent, as was the roasted broccoli. Polenta with mascarpone was a good vegetarian option. Service was very attentive.

I love that they have a “kid friendly” menu. Only complaint is that it’s too dark - candlelight dining taken too far. Seemed like that was the only light available. But overall, stellar!

Pizza dough in center was soggy. Would ask to have it cooked longer.

We love introducing family and friends to Pizziaolo! The staff is amazing and works with us when we need to to make changes to our reservation, even at the last minute. The servers are wonderful and of course the food is fresh and fantastic. Everyone we have ever taken to Pizziaolo loves it!

Food was great. Staff is upbeat, friendly and competent. Our table was well-looked after - dishes were described when they arrived, empty dishes taken away promptly, water glasses always full. It was a wonderful evening.

We were celebrating our son's graduation, so the hostess gave us a booth--which was awesome. The food was delicious, ambiance festive (but not too loud), and the wait staff were excellent. Thank you and Happy New Year! We'll definitely be back.
