Loriana, the piadina specialist

We only do one thing, but we do it well

Loriana is not simply a piadina.
Loriana is THE piadina, created in Forlì in 1973.
The original recipe, prepared with flour made from the wheat from Romagna, and lots of love.
Otherwise, it would be like any other.


Who's Loriana

Loriana’s first piadina was
created in Forlì over 40 years ago

Loriana loved being in the kitchen. The cutting board had always been her favorite plaything ever since, as a child, she had watched water and flour come together to create something wonderful, her grandmother’s piadine (and her grandmother’s name was Loriana too)…
The kind that were prepared only by hand, first making a dough ball and then rolling it out with a rolling pin. The kind that were cooked using a special griddle, the traditional “testo”, and the flame had to stay low, and you had to watch them and flip them over when the brown spots appeared on the surface. The kind that, when you took them to the table, immediately put everyone in a good mood, and were always good any way you ate them.

Already as a child, Loriana had no doubts as to what
she wanted to do when she grew up: she’d make piadine.
She would make them exactly the way
her grandmother did
and she would make them with love.

Because, as her grandmother said, “When you make things
with love, they’re all much better.
Everyone knows that…”

“Loriana wanted to make her grandmother’s piadine when she grew up. She wanted to make them for everyone.”
