Piato Restaurant for dinner on the Pier Cairns

Good choice of gluten free items on the dinner menu.  Plates are a mix of Italian and Greek. My dinner companion and I chose to share mushrooms with garlic and lightly fried calamari with aioli for entree.  Both were very tasty with quite a lot of calamari rings. For main course I chose the Piato…

Piato Restaurant at the Pier Cairns

Lunch at this restaurant was fairly simple but quite tasty.  I chose the hamburger with gluten free bread (toast) which was ordinary but jazzed up with roasted capsicum and tzatziki on the burger.
