The menu is predictable and the food is fine, but we go because we love the staff. The bartenders are friendly and attentive. When on a prolonged vacation, it's nice to have a familiar bar stool to sit in. The owners should be most appreciative of their people.

Great pizza, very thin crust so I'd recommend ordering one small pizza per person and then sharing with your group. Super friendly waitstaff. Nice highchairs for little kids, and food came very quickly, which is nice when eating with children.

It is one of my favourite places to dine in Playa del Carmen. It is very well located and it has a very nice atmosphere. The waiters are always very kind and joyful and the place is surrounded by sof light and nature.

If you want great pizza and a matching atmosphere head to Piola - food and service are top notch! We end up here a couple times per vacation and are always pleased - we have also suggested Piola to many friends and all rave about the food!

I've been coming here off and on for about 8 yrs now. This year Piolas has managed to up its game and take their pizzas to an 11 out of 10. Yes, that's 11. In my opinion, you're not going to find a thin crust pizza in too many places, with the toppings loaded on there the way they do... More

Very open outdoorish restaurant that is accomdating of very large groups. Our group ended up getting all pasta dishes and all were very well executed. The gnocchi leg a O was very rich but very delicious. The mushroom ravioli had a great texture without being chewy and the filling was tasty. One of the favorites of the table was the... More

This restaurant was a hub of activity and was busy through the day and evening often with a line to get in. We tried a few pasta dishes which were average, but I would stick with the Pizzas which were above average and with plenty of selection. Service was attentive and they have a great sound system. Also most tables... More
