Calling all piadine fans! Spezia Piadina & Co expects you to discover their wonderful typical Italian cuisine in the heart of Paris 8th arrondissement. This culinary specialty comes from Emilia-Romagna and is a mix of sandwich and pizza (in a nutshell…), likely to delight you all!

How about having a piadina for lunch instead of a pizza or sandwich? Head to Spezia Piadina & Co, an Italian restaurant serving this wonderful specialty from Emilia-Romagna, set between pizza and sandwich and consisting in craft wheat flatbread stuffed and toasted. The place opened in 2008, in the heart of Paris 8th arrondissement, one of the first to start serving piadine in the city.

As for the menu, the place provides you with a dozen piadine, all very flavorful: Antica based on tomato, mozzarella and pesto; Verdure with grilled marinated veggies; Pollo based on roast chicken and shaved parmesan; as well as Cotto with white ham; Melanzane with eggplants; or even Bresaola e Cariofi based on bresaola and artichokes… It is hard to choose as they all sound very mouthwatering!

Besides piadine, Spezia Piadina & Co serves more classic dishes like salads or pasta dishes if you want to stick to a sure bet. As for dessert, a delightful Nutella tiramisu, classic tiramisu, a strawberry salad, or tea (or coffee) with gourmet desserts, likely to delight sweet-toothed people! Please also note all piadine are homemade, excluding bread and the dough balls for piadina, made by a master baker in Val-d’Oise. As for the rest, all produces are sourced.

A menu the editorial board tried. To start with, two cocktails: a Limonana, without alcohol, based on lemonade and fresh mint; as well as a Bellini, a cocktail based on prosecco and peach juice. We then went for the truffled burrata to share, as a starter, and moved on to mains with a piadina and a pasta dish. As for the piadina, we got the Melanzane based on eggplants, smoked scarmoza, mozzarella, pine nuts and tomatoes. So good, and served with a side of salad, although we struggle to eat it as it was very hearty. As for the pasta dish, we got the penne with truffle cream and bresaola. A very good pick, the sauce was balanced in truffle, not lacking of it but not overloaded in truffle.

As for dessert, we got to discover the homemade tiramisu, relatively filling, but very flavorful, and the tea with gourmet desserts to change from coffee. A dessert including a cup of tea (we got Earl Grey), a mini red berry panna cotta, and a mini Nutella tiramisu… We loved it! In other words, a great place to discover if you like piadine… or just tasty Italian cuisine!
