Delicious, authentic Italian food!! The gnocchi legnano is my absolute favourite! Very friendly and accommodating staff.
I have been at Piola on other occasions , but this time despite having made reservations a week in advance for a group of (6) we had to wait a long time to be seated. It was a Friday at noon and not a full restaurant and still service was slow as ever.
We had mentioned in the reservation notes that we would be celebrating a birthday and that we had chosen Piola because the birthday girl loves it ! Well, we did not even get a question weather we wanted a dessert for the birthday or at all for that matter. We had to request refills several times ( drinks and water) because glasses went empty for a while ... also by t he time our food was actually on our table we were THE ONLY party left in the entire restaurant , so I just can't figure out why no one really cared about serving us. Everyone in our party left really disappointed .
Nothing special - just a neighborhood pizza parlor
This was our first time try Piola. Cozy place but nice contemporary decor.
Service was great I love that half price for glass or bottle wine.
Pizza was amazing.
I had a salad with chicken which was very good! My daughter is a picky eater and thought her pepperoni pizza was delicious! Great selection of desserts! Great beer and wine selection!
I recently went to Piola for a girls night out with 8 of my friends. We had a wonderful time. I love that the menu offers a little something for everyone. There are also gluten free options. I also eat here with my family family often as well. Their sauce is amazing. I love the pasta dishes I've tried. Next up is the pizza.
We had a wonderful first experience with our 4 year old at Piola. We sat outside and enjoyed the nice weather and received our food within about 15 minutes of ordering----it was FAST.
Our young gentleman server was personable, prompt, and won the heart of our daughter with a long bendy straw that he turned into a heart for her.
Thanks Piola Raleigh!
Find another place this was a horrible meal and our server was mor interested in talking to her friends than waiting on our table. The food was fine, standard chain restaurant fare which would have been okay, maybe 3 stars if the waitress had ever returned to check on us. We had to chase her down for water, wine, we skipped dessert which sh never offered and had to get the hostess to bring our check. The restaurant was empty on a Saturday night which should have been our first clue.
Really enjoyed lunch here the other day. The food was excellent, and the service was impeccable. One of the party asked for a substitution, but that wasn't a problem at all - the server was very nice, and accommodating. It was a late lunch, so it was quiet, but it is definitely a place to keep in mind for next time. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.
I come here every so often with my neighbor for lunch, but this was my first time for dinner. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the pizza and overall atmosphere. It was a little crowded, but all was well! Thanks Piola!
