PIADA, a Columbus-based fast-casual, authentic Italian eatery, serves made to order Piadas (an Italian thin crust dough, baked on a stone grill, then hand rolled with fresh authentic ingredients), Pasta Bowls and Chopped Salads. The company was founded by Chris Doody, who co-founded the BRAVO BRIO Restaurant Group in 1992. PIADA uses only the highest quality ingredients, from a blend of natural and organic flour, to extra virgin olive oil for the Piadas, to made from scratch sauces, pestos, and dressings. PIADA restaurants feature a modern Italian design with white Carrara marble, fumed white oak furniture, LED lighting and stained concrete floors. PIADA (www.mypiada.com) was born from the belief that everyone is entitled to experience fresh, authentic Italian food in a warm and inviting atmosphere.
