Patio time at Piada

My girl had a rough day today. Like, woke up in tears and cried approximately 17 more times throughout the day. It was time for an intervention: dinner with mommy.

A few weeks ago, the kind people at Piada gave us the opportunity to sample some meals, so we redeemed those entree cards tonight. It was an absolutely gorgeous night tonight, and the Worthington location (on the exterior of Worthington Mall) has an impressive, shaded patio. The mall has really brought their A-game with landscaping, which makes this location particularly enjoyable outside.  There is also a ton of parking because it is at the mall. 
Now that I have kids, I love the restaurant concept of walking up, ordering, and taking it back to your table. The kids like peering into the ingredients behind glass (which leads to some pretty good conversations about ingredients we might try), and the line moves pretty quickly. 
Larkyn and Rhys and I usually share a pasta bowl with crispy chicken (but soon I will have to start ordering them their own kids' meals--the crispy chicken is SO GOOD).  Matt ordered a side salad, which they toss with dressing in front of you, and a Piada stick. I immediately wanted his food too, but resisted.
I am always floored by the amount of food that the kids eat at Piada. I think the sauces we typically get (pomodoro and alfredo mix) are mild and the noodles are very easy to eat. Hey, they might even accidentally eat a vegetable!  I actually missed that they even had a kids' menu in the store, but see a nice selection for them on the website.

They have traditional fountain drinks (I mix lemonade and iced tea) as well as Italian sodas, bellinis and Peronis at some (very lucky) locations. The kids love the Parmagiano Piada sticks, but we have also tried the garlic dough (filled with cheese) which we don't like quite as much. It's hard to top the Piada stick. And don't worry, there are a few dessert choices too: Cannoli chips (like a deconstructed cannoli) and gelato at some locations.

We love the convenience of Piada and especially the ambience of the beautiful Worthington location. If you want a quick, inexpensive patio dinner with the kids, find it at Piada Worthington.
