Piada Italian Street Food, a fast-casual Italian eatery featuring hand-rolled piadas, pasta bowls and chopped salads, is set to open Aug. 22 at River Crossing, just east of The Fashion Mall on the northeast side.

The free-standing restaurant is located in front of PK Partners’ The Shops at River Crossing in the southwest corner of Barnes & Noble’s parking lot. IBJ first reported in 2013 that the Piada would locate at the site.

The 3,000-square-foot restaurant will seat 73 inside and 24 outside. Average price for a meal is about $9.

Piada will give away free entrees for a year to the first 100 people in the door on Aug.22 and will distribute wrist bands for those camping out starting at 7 p.m. Aug. 21, the company said.

Chris Doody, also a founder of the Bravo! Cucina Italiana chain, started Piada in 2010. The Columbus, Ohio-based chain has a location at 1380 S. Rangeline Road in Carmel, in addition to 17 in Ohio and two in Michigan.


  • Piada
    Yummy, but overpriced.
  • Cha-Ching
    Overpriced. Nice joke.
  • Overpriced?
    9$ average entree, Fashion Mall, Northside, and you consider that overpriced? Were are you from...Bargersville? Excited to have a better priced Italian there as opposed to Maggianos.

  1. I never thought I'd see the day when a Republican Mayor would lead the charge in attempting to raise every tax we have to pay. Now it's income taxes and property taxes that Ballard wants to increase. And to pay for a pre-K program? Many studies have shown that pre-K offer no long-term educational benefits whatsoever. And Ballard is pitching it as a way of fighting crime? Who is he kidding? It's about government provided day care. It's a shame that we elected a Republican who has turned out to be a huge big spending, big taxing, big borrowing liberal Democrat.

  2. Why do we blame the unions? They did not create the 11 different school districts that are the root of the problem.

  3. I was just watching an AOW race from cleveland in addition to the 65K for the race, there were more people in boats watching that race from the lake than were IndyCar fans watching the 2014 IndyCar season finale in the Fontana grandstands. Just sayin...That's some resurgence modern IndyCar has going. Almost profitable, nobody in the grandstands and TV ratings dropping 61% at some tracks in the series. Business model..."CRAZY" as said by a NASCAR track general manager. Yup, this thing is purring like a cat! Sponsors...send them your cash, pronto!!! LOL, not a chance.

  4. I'm sure Indiana is paradise for the wealthy and affluent, but what about the rest of us? Over the last 40 years, conservatives and the business elite have run this country (and state)into the ground. The pendulum will swing back as more moderate voters get tired of Reaganomics and regressive social policies. Add to that the wave of minority voters coming up in the next 10 to 15 years and things will get better. unfortunately we have to suffer through 10 more years of gerrymandered districts and dispropionate representation.

  5. Funny people telling poor people how bad the other rich people are wanting to cut benefits/school etc and that they should vote for those rich people that just did it. Just saying..............
