We were getting together for a pre-holiday lunch between two old friends. At Fiola we were unhurried and the food was superb - especially the fresh seafood and their handmade gnocchi with shaved fresh white truffles. Every detail was spot-on perfect. The menu was challenging...More

Our group of 4 dined here for Thanksgiving. An a la carte menu was offered, on which there was a turkey focused main course, but surprisingly no pumpkin or pie focused dessert course. While the initial impressions were positive - driven by well constructed cocktails...More

Let’s just start saying the food is good ( except the desserts ). The problem at Fiola is the service. Where do I start ? The server was indifferent and just asking a question seemed to bother him. The wine lady was very pushy and...More

Brilliant service upon entry, and amazing food. Probably one of the best pastas I've ever had. I was here for lunch and the staff members kept my coffee and water constantly refilled. The tiramisu dessert is a must try. I will say, this is an...More

Went with expectation on this Italian meal, only to leave with regrets. It might have gone downhill or just we ran out of luck. Food was mediocre and our low sodium request made at reservation could not be quite met - more a kitcken issue...More
