What is Piada?

Soft yet crispy, PIADA or PIADINA is a rustic Italian flatbread. The original 14th century recipe originates from the Emilia Romagna region of Northern Italy. Initially the PIADA was called “bread of the poor people.”

Today it has become an international culinary favorite and it is recognized and protected as an authentic regional specialty PDO (protected designation of origin).

With so many possibilities, our PIADAS make the perfect choice for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert or snack served fast, conveniently and always delicious.

We make fresh PIADA dough every morning on site.

We cook our PIADAS on Italian earthenware griddles as it has been done for over 500 years by the Romagnoli people!

Final Stage


Our Chef

Sara Valeri, owner and chef of “Piada Mania”, was born and raised in the Romagna region of northern Italy, where the PIADA flatbread has its roots.

Her father was a baker and from a young age Sara helped in the family’s Piada business.

These fond memories caused her to crave this delightful flatbread and spurred her on to make her own and bring this iconic piece of Italy to her new community in Sarasota, Florida.

Sara is happy to share her roots and love for healthy, fresh and tasty traditional Italian food.

So don’t forget…at “PIADA MANIA” everything is made with LOVE!
