Big menu, something to please everyone, service is quick - not a 3-hour lunch, for those occasions when you don't want one, and good for larger groups.

See we were warmly welcomed in this fairly ordinary looking restaurant and it made us feel good. Service straits away with good attention. We got very different food and all were very pleased with the quality especially taken price level into consideration. Definitely a good choice

It is located right in the heart of the city. Dining rooms is very spacious and seems to be very popular by looking at the number of people eating there. However we are not very impressed particularly with the service. They are pretty slow and mixing orders. We did not get what we ordered although we waited quite a long... More

Charming little Italian restaurant in the heart of Alba! The service was very good and the food was very good as well. We are in Alba for the White Truffle Festival so naturally we had white truffles almost every meal. Their traditional egg pasta dish would have been good regardless of the sauce...the cocotte was outstanding...highly recommend you give this... More

Highly Recommended This was my third visit to La Piola, and I have not been disappointed. The dishes featured locally grown produce and farm raised meats, the salads and soups tasted fresh. Because the menus change each day (I attached a photograph of the version offered on 27 Sep 2016) I am in,fined to believe the food was fresh. I... More

We came here for my birthday dinner on a Thursday evening, as the restaurant was recommended by our land lady and TripAdvisor. We had booked the table one day in advance and were situated in the glass enclosed part in front of the main restaurant. When we arrived at 19:30 it was still pretty empty. The service lady hardly spoke... More

My first truffle experience and I wanted to order something special. I had just arrived in Elba for the white truffle festival and quickly left my hotel with only a rain jacket, and which I put €35. Certainly enough for lunch. I remembered an anecdote about a tour guide spending the entire week's dining money at the truffle festival, unknowingly.... More

What a great place! We were a group of 6 people and got seated on their ''outside'' area, which is covered and has a great view of the piazza. It turns out that area is better than eating inside. The decoration is great. Nice decorated plates and glasses made our table very welcoming. The service is friendly and on time.... More

We had dinner at La Piola on a Saturday night in early October and it was quite busy. It appeared that most of the diners were Swiss and French. The service was courteous and efficient and the food quite good.
