A suitably simple black, white and red interior serves as a backdrop to this streamlined operation based around the piada, a crisp Italian flatbread infused with olive oil, packed with flavourful ingredients and then toasted on a griddle. The menu lists 16 combinations (‘zero’ to ‘sedici’, but without a 13), from the pleasantly rustic matching of mortadella and mozzarella to more sophisticated pairings (bacon, courgette and mozzarella, or chicken, brie and sun-dried tomato); the sweet variation loaded with Nutella is the only one not served with rocket. Generous bowls of soup make for a satisfying alternative, and impeccably frothed coffees and dense, clean-cut brownies encourage lingering at the handful of tables. Staff are friendly and the vibe upbeat. A superb alternative to the usual suspects when it comes to sandwich culture in the capital.

I had a steak salad that cost me £ 7.50 for my lunch and it was appalling. The worse steak ever (threw in the bin as it was inedible, steak I could neither cut it nor chew it) and pricy. Ended up having"piadas" and a hand full of rocket for £7.50. Very disappointing. Will def not go back to Piada.
