Enjoyed dinner at Piola the other evening with friends. Our meals of meatballs and spaghetti, gnocchi with red sauce, pasta Bolognese and penne with bacon along with large house salad, pizza and dessert were delicious and well prepared. The cooking is simple, but well executed with very high quality ingredients used in all dishes. The lunch menu features many terrific... More

Very very very very very disappointed in my encounter. Ordered 15 pizzas delivered for a corporate meeting lunch. Choose Piola bc I was told thier pizzas where incredible. Well, that may be so fresh inside but, delivered was a disaster. We used the Prime Now option as suggested when I called to inquire if they deliver. Moral of the story... More

I was told that it was all good but that the pizzas were a speciality so I had a Venetzia with extra jalapeños, and very nice it was too Although this is a... More

I've dined here with my family over the years as Piola is a perfect spot on the edge of downtown for a nice dinner. The pizzas have a perfectly thin crust and lots of savory tomato sauce, so we always order 3 or 4. If you have the chance, try out the gnocchi pompei!

This is one of only a few places in Houston that have original Italian pizza! Their pasta is also amazing (you have to try gnocci)! The place is a bit too dark inside for my taste, but seating ouside is ok when the weather is nice.

Great restaurant transplanted from Italy so I had to go here over other Italian restaurants. They had what looked like good pasta options and a vast selection of about 40 pizzas. For a slightly thicker crust, get the regular crust. For a thinner and just as tasty crust, get the whole wheat. Both were excellent. They had a smaller wine... More

Description
In 1986, in the heart of Treviso, ITALY, a new idea takes shape: the re-invention of the most quintessential Italian establishment: the Pizzeria, that idea is now a wonderful reality called PIOLA.

The success achieved in Italy by Piola has started to spread around the world: Piola’s quality is now sought after by discriminating and trend-setting international clientele in the United States, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Turkey and coming soon Honduras.

At Piola, the most genuine Italian tradition of simple and delicious food combines cleverly with a particular service and ambiance for the demanding and modern customer, who chooses Piola aware of the fact that feeling comfortable is as important as eating well. People from all walks of life and backgrounds meet and gather at Piola, since they are sure to find their own space in an atmosphere that balances freedom and well being with good taste.
