In early April we took a peek in the window of Piola Pizzeria coming to 2208 14th St, NW (just north of W.) Having stopped inside, that hardly did this incredible renovation any justice. They open to the public Monday but in the meantime you can see how great the space turned out:
Piola’s website says:
Piola’s cuisine is rigorously Italian: Simple and healthy. Piola’s pizza is thin-crust and well cooked, but above all, Piola’s pizza menu is very creative: the classic Italian pizzas are flanked by many other creations, all delicious and original.
But Piola is more, much more:
Piola opens its doors to culture, hosting film premieres, book and magazine events, art exhibitions and many other social and artistic activities.
You can see their Arlington menu here.
Lots more photos after the jump.
