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.

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.

Also most tables... More

I went for dinner with my wife and kids in a vacation that began on December 21. The place has a nice bar and food music, but we went to eat. In that regard I came out very unhappy.

Dropped in there last night. We stayed at a local resort where the food was not very good. This was a win! Really great pizza and chicken! We were impressed! The complimentary bruschetta was amazing!

We stayed at mahekal beach resort so we were very close to Piola. The pizza was amazing! We ate here twice and got an order to go! Staff was very nice and the open air ambiance was inviting. Would def recommend.

Another great Italian dinner in playa right off 5th avenue. Had the chicken parm and a pasta dish and both were good. This seems to be a favorite place for the locals and was a very up beat location for dinner and drinks. They had some NFL games playing at the bar.
