“Lovely restaurant in sleepy frinton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

We have eaten here twice now, onboth occasions a lovely meal, The Sea Bass on a bed of leek was superb and I have never had so much sea bass. Very pleasant service on both occasions. A must if you are visiting the quite town, "within the gates".

“Brilliant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2012

My part and I visited Piatto the same night as the supposed "Ken"........The service and food was excellent ! Looking at other reports I can only agree that this is a supperb restaurant and was on the 18th February. Probably Trip Advisor should check some of the reviews of resteraunts to make sure that they are real, as the one below cannot have visited on the 18th!!!!!!
