Pia’s and Backfin tie for my favorite Gulfport restaurant. Pia’s food rivals anything I’ve had in Italy, and I ate well in Italy! Over the years, Pia has expanded from a tiny eatery to include a few indoor dining rooms as well as an outdoor courtyard and sidewalk dining. This is a good thing: the word is out and Pia and the staff deserve all the compliments they get from happy diners.
The Lasagna Bolognese is my staple but half the time I’m diverted from that option by a mouthwatering Daily Special. For appetizer enthusiasts, the salads and soups are equally delicious.
Yep, that’s THE lasagna
Insalata Pia – Romaine, arugula, tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and gorgonzola cheese
Pia’s is located at 3054 Beach Blvd South.
