Ever since Piola opened a few months ago I have been dying to try their authentic pizzas and pastas. They are located on West Queen West, at Northcote (just east of Dufferin). I’m glad I got in when I did because this place is sure to be packed come summertime!
The menu has been compared to Terroni and Pizzaria Libretto, and I can confirm those are great comparisons, but the atmosphere at Piola seemed a lot less formal and a bit more fun.
We shared the Gnocchi 4 Formaggi and Contadina pizza. The gnocchi tasted incredibly fresh and was filling. The pizza was also delicious and was doused (by us) in Piola’s spicy olive oil.
This place is Jamie-Leigh approved for sure! Oh and tiramisu – next time you are mine!
My tip: on the 29th of every month they host “Lucky Gnocchi” day. It’s all-you-can-eat gnocchi for the total pasta glutton in
all most of us. I’ve also heard rumblings about Tuesdays being $8 pizza night, which is a great deal for these delicious pies.
