  • Get the amarcord piada (#1) and add tomato!
  • A piada is an Italian sandwich made with round, flat bread lightly filled with various sharp (perhaps hard to pronounce) ingredients that contribute to a unique sandwich experience.
  • Great b'fast!! Fast, easy & delish!! Piada with egg & cheese & large coffee, less than 6 bucks :)
  • Make sure to ask for your piada hot
  • Don't eat here.
  • We go here for the espresso. Pretty good!
  • Best potato soup!
  • Amazing food and friendly staff. I live on the UWS and am over on the East Side a lot during the week. Stopped in here on a whim. I look forward to becoming a Piada regular!
  • Very friendly staff
  • Ottimo! A fresh breeze of northern Italy in the heart of Lex ave. The piadine are healthy and very tasty. And I like that they don't waste too much paper with useless wrappings.
  • Great, traditional Italian espresso (they use Danesi) and very good biscotti and macaroons to go with.
  • Best cappuccino ever
  • Tasty Italian sandwiches with think wrap like bread. Summer salad is watermelon. Yum. Also there's a waterfall out front.
  • Lunch combo is a large quantity of food and quite tasty.
  • Too expensive for lunch. Sandwiches are small and sides are expensive. >$15
  • Delicious fresh authentic Italian style sandwiches.
  • Great tasting piadas. 1 is never enough.
  • Get the egg piada with toppings for breakfast! It makes a clean and satisfying start of your day.
  • Get a piada with grilled chicken, speck, pecorino, eggplant, basil, olive oil, and lots of the spicy mayo. This will be the piada to die for. Latte was meh, beans are too acidic.
