We have been to this restaurant a few times and it never ceases to amaze and delight. The food is out of this world, for such a small unassuming place, it is fantastic. There was a small group of us with an age range of mid-70s down to a 2 year old. Nothing was too much trouble, the service was... More

I'm sure you must have confused us with some other place. If you REALLY visited Piatto you would be able to have seen that we don't cook with Microwaves, as we have an open Kitchen. False reviews are so obvious that it' not really worth posting them. Have a happy New Year. More

Have been a few times and always very happy to order food here but this time they out did themselves. We had a lovely time and when my other half asked for a pizza that was not on the menu, the staff and chef more than accommodated us and brought out lovely food for all 3 of us. First class... More

Very nice atmosphere. Quick and polite service. Prawn and crayfish tail starter very generous portion. Mushroom starter also good. Nice dipping sauce. Fish pie delicious full of flavour. Steak sirloin bit tough but cooked as I liked it rare/medium blood and pink. Nice choice of veg. £1 extra for sauce Diane. Asked for english mustard. They said they had none... More

We've just moved into the area and treated ourselves to a delicious lunch last Sunday. The tomato and basil soup was gorgeous and we thoroughly enjoyed the roast beef. We were given a warm welcome and the service was excellent. We are looking forward to a return visit.

On Sunday five of us went to Piatto's for lunch- all wanting something different from the menu! My sister had roast beef, looked lovely, beef was very good. I fancied seafood risotto, and although the it was not on the menu, the chef kindly cooked it for me. It was delicious, with large fresh prawns and mussels. The rest of... More

Visited this little gem of a restaurant several times this year now and have not been let down. Really impressive food - fillet steak is up there with the best we've had, and the salmon risotto is amazing. Great wine, accommodating staff, lovely atmosphere, and genuinely delicious food. So grateful to have this place on our doorstep!
