Piola Pizzeria Brings in The Dough for Suniland

MIAMI BEACH, FL – July 1, 2015 – Pizza lovers, you are in luck. Terranova has signed a 10-year lease with Piola for 2,517 square feet at 11421 South Dixie Highway in Suniland Shopping Center, the premier shopping center in the heart of Pinecrest. The location is projected to open Fall 2015.


Piola was founded in Treviso, Italy in 1986 by the Carniato brothers who decided to build a brick pizza oven in their parent’s restaurant. The success of the brother’s pizza and their dedication to serving traditional Italian food led to Piola’s expansion into over 11 countries. They are faithful to their core values of product, service, and ambience all of which have drawn a following of loyal customers to their current restaurants and soon their upcoming location in Suniland Shopping Center.

Suniland, originally built in 1955, services the county’s most affluent neighborhoods of Pinecrest and Palmetto Bay. The center’s prosperity has attracted various national tenants including Piola as well as the expansion of various regional retailers. Suniland’s ideal location makes it accessible and convenient which are two characteristics Piola strives to provide both in their service and customer experience.

“Piola’s strong commitment to serve customary Italian food at affordable prices is what draws so many to this unique pizzeria,” says Terranova’s commercial associate India Turkell who represented the landlord in the deal. “The robust customer base that they bring to each and every location will be prevalent in the Suniland Shopping Center bringing traffic to this already successful plaza.”

The pizzeria in Suniland Shopping Center will join a tenant line-up that includes other leading retailers such as CVS Pharmacy, Smoothie King, Flanigan’s, Citibank, and Chicken Kitchen. For more information on available spaces in Suniland please send inquiries to or take a look at our website at
