Much like Chipotle, diners at Piada can build their own personalized wraps, pastas or salads from an array of grilled items such as calamari, chicken, steak, sausage, salmon or veggies. Customers can then choose from a variety of toppings and sauces, such as pomodoro and diavolo.
The piada, or Italian flatbread, is cooked on an exhibition-style hot stone. Once cooked, the piada looks similar to a tortilla. Piada actually refers to a whole wheat Italian flatbread, or a sandwich made out of this bread.
Piada's menu features grilled items such as calamari with hot peppers, rosemary, garlic and lemon chicken, and Italian sausage. Side dishes include piada sticks, calamari and artichoke and spinach dip.
The interior decor is contemporary with images of Vespa scooters on the walls. Bench seating also is an element in the dining room that serves as a reminder of 'family style' eating that Italians are known for.
Piada tries to engage its guests throughout the dining process. An orange poster on the dining room wall invites guests to the next Piada VIP opening. Customers also can scan the QR Code to ensure they're on the invite list.
Piada's menu boards highlight the various sandwiches and salads available at the restaurant. In addition to sandwiches and salads, the menu features Italian Wedding and Lobster Bisque soups.
One of more popular menu items is the piada sticks. Guests can choose from three varieties: pepperoni, parmigiano reggiano or artichoke, all served with parmesan dipping sauce.
