We have been in Frinton a day and looked up the other reviews on TA. The two poor reviews could not be more wrong. We were served excellent food and the service could not have been anymore efficient, friendly and attentive. Even when a small error was made on our bill, it was dealt with in a very friendly manner and with no fuss. If you like good Italian food, and a friendly atmosphere (and beer served in an ice cold glass!) this is a must eat!

We've been going to Piatto regularly for more than three years and always enjoy our visits. Friendly staff, efficient service, excellent food with a huge variety of choice. Reasonable prices for both food and drinks. Our favourite place to eat whenever we're in Frinton!

Staff were very welcoming when we arrived. Great olives to start with. We had two dishes from the oven - gnocchi in a Gorgonzola sauce and pasta in a tomato sauce with summer vegetables. Mixed salad was fresh and the red onions in it provided some zip. All in all a very pleasant dining experience from a restaurant that is clearly making an effort in a town where eating options seem to be rather limited. I hope they succeed.

I've been to this Italian many times and I love it. The service is warm and there is always someone to greet you as you enter! In the summer time, sitting outside in the evening is gorgeous in the seaside town. The food always arrives fast and I've been on dates there with my partner, as well as having my own 18th birthday there!

One criticism is that the risotto rice always tends to be slightly underdone, and there is a lot of pepper used in it.

Apart from that, a wonderful little establishment,

Piatto serves good Italian food, including pizza, pasta and a full grill menu. Service is excellent and monthly Jazz nights are well worth catching. Very good value and never disappointing
