It has been a long waiting for Piola Pizza to open. Owner Nabil Ashi called it is a “work in progress” the last time we spoke to him, in January.
Piola, an international Italian food chain known for its pizza, has been setting up and working on its new location at 2208 14th Street NW since last year.
The facade of the building got new signs a couple of weeks ago and there is work going on inside with decoration, furniture and the kitchen. We spoke to Ashi last week to follow up on the opening of the restaurant:
“It Is not official yet but I believe we will be ready to open during the first week of May. We are now going over the decoration and organizing all our supplies, cleaning, etc. We are also in the process of hiring the management staff .”
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.
