Eat It - Piola, 1625 Alton Road, Miami Beach, FL 305-674-1660

"You've never been to Piola?" - Everyone

Well, wise guys, now I have. Twice in a week, in fact. It's great. You get seated immediately by friendly wait staff and the pizzas come out about 3 minutes after you order them. Capricciosa is one of my favorite pizzas, and Piola's is fantastic. The crust is good enough to eat on it's own, so that makes it doubly infuriating if you dine with one of those non-crust eaters. It is sure to be one of my South Beach staples henceforth. Great place to go for a bite before a movie, since the theater is half a block away and it's not a touristy ripoff the way much of South Beach (and especially Lincoln Rd.) has become. I might have dinner there tonight, in fact.
