Piola is bringing pizza to 14th Street. Borderstan spoke to owner Nabil Ashi, about the 2208 14th Street NW location.
“It has been a work in progress,” Ashi says. “(We’re) still waiting to have gas into the building. We have finally got water and power which took us a really long time.”
The location has been through renovation since last year. The new Piola location, according to Ashi, is going through the final touches while waiting for gas. Its facade was recently painted. There is no specific opening date yet, but Piola should be open by the end of February.
The menu will be very similar to the ones found in their other locations: authentic Italian cuisine, pastas and an extensive list of pizzas served in a casual space. Piola will also serve wine and beer.
Piola is one of the numerous new Italian restaurants coming to 14th Street. The chain has locations not only in the United States, but also in Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Honduras, Chile and Turkey. Some of you might have already been to a Piola, since they have a location just right across the Key Street Bridge in Arlington on Wilson Boulevard.
