Lardeya Ice Piedmont (Bulgarian: ледник Лардея, IPA: [ˈlɛdnik ɫɐrˈdɛjɐ]) is the glacier extending 8.6 nautical miles (15.9 km; 9.9 mi) in north-south direction and 4 nautical miles (7.4 km; 4.6 mi) in east-west direction on the east side of Sentinel Range in Ellsworth Mountains, Antarctica. It is draining the northeast slopes of Flowers Hills to flow into Rutford Ice Stream to the east-northeast and Ellen Glacier to the north.

The feature is named after the medieval fortress of Lardeya in southeastern Bulgaria.
