This is a little out of the way, but worth it. A little spartan inside, but the salad and pizza are fresh and tasty. Waiters a attentive and the beer was cold in a frosted mug. I'm in! Give it a try, I think you won't be disappointed.

I went to Pizza Piola for the second time yesterday, August 4 2016. The restaurant has a good location, the ambiance is nice, very local and the service is good. The food was tasty, good portions, nice presentation. The only bad thing we experienced was the payment process. We added the service to the total bill (we calculated a 13%... More

There are too many fantastic restaurants in the city to waste time, calories and money in a tasteless environment. "There's no avocado for the salad you ordered" waiter said. "Can you add hearts of palm or something else instead?" - salad comes with hearts of palm- "I would have to charge you extra for it." "Then how about you deduct... More

We went here to catch up with some friends, experienced good service and our food was timely. I ate gnocchi, and it wasn't amazing, but the pizzas were wood-oven baked and tasty. Don't have much in the way of a wine list.

We stopped at Piola on the 1st night of our 6 week stay in Panama. We have traveled through Central America and tried pizza at several places in several countries. Piola's definitely has the best pizza we have tried. The crust is thin and the cheese was SO good! The cheese in Central America leaves something to be desired but... More

If you are into authentic Argentinian street tango and food then this is the place for you. Great food, FAB-U-LASS atmosphere, good service, altogether a great night out. You can even have a Tango dance lesson for 5$ , what more can you ask.

I was introduced to this place by my girlfriend who lived in Argentina for several years, the owners are Argentinian. The restaurant is located in a centric place near other restaurants in the banking area but all the times we have visited it has been quiet there.Most definitely an undiscovered place. It doesn't matter what you order, pizza, meat pies... More

Nice people, good service, good pizza by Latin American standards. For better pizza, though, try Athens Pizza

Recently on a trip to Panama I visited this restaurant on two occasions. On the first occasion I had a fabulous plate of spaghetti in a wonderful meet sauce.
