There are few things better than brunching with your Bitches. That is until you spontaneously add several Brunching Bros, unlimited booze, and all the pizza you can eat. Piola Pizza, new to the U Street Corridor, invited us to indulge in their unlimited pizza brunch. We eagerly accepted as we are the queens of carbs, and made our way down the sunny streets of DC towards the eatery.
We entered the restaurant and were greeted immediately by a smiling and welcoming hostess. While Cori Sue checked us in, I spent the time perusing the restaurant and taking in the scenery. Piola’s atmosphere is well lit, a little funky, and looks almost half finished, which lends itself to a relaxed feeling. Multicolored light fixtures hang from the ceiling and drop between the first floor and the second. The bar consumes most of the first floor, but the second floor not only has tons of seating, but also has a large rooftop. It’s definitely a casual, no fuss establishment.
When faced with the option of dining inside or outside on the patio, we were torn. Should we bask in the sunshine or indulge in the air conditioning? We opted for a table just inside the doors in order to get the best of both worlds. Our adorable and attentive waiter greeted us warmly and gave us the rundown of how the pizza brunch worked.
