A piadina (plural is piadine) is a thin, flaky flatbread originating in the Emilia-Romagna region. The dough is made with a variety of ingredients to create delicious flavors from rosemary olive oil to coconut oil to accent both sweet and savory fillings. A piadina is served warm with a variety of fillings from meats to cheeses to vegetables and fruits accompanied by delicious sauces.

The piadina was traditionally cooked on a terracotta dish but today flat iron pans and electric griddles are commonly used. We use electric griddles. The first written reference to piadina dates back to 1371, in the Descirptia Romandiolae compiled by Cardinal Anglico, who provided a recipe for the bread of the people of Romagna. Today, there are over 1,000 ‘piadineria’ in Italy, most of which are small, neighborhood eateries.
We hope you enjoy our first neighborhood piadineria in Boston.
