Bringing a host of tantalising flavours to Southend-on-Sea, Pieno-Lleno is the place to be for those hankering for some scrumptious fare.
Perfectly marrying the cuisines of both Italy and Mexico, the restaurant offers up an eclectic menu of delicious dishes for all that care to partake. Many of which are available to tastecard members at a fantastic discount when they call in advance with their card, leaving plenty in the pocket for an accompanying beverage or two.
Beginning with one of the exquisite starters, where a glorious collection of chicken wings, available with either a BBQ, lemon and herb or hot sauce, can be found alongside a delectable calamari number, and where the grande nachos make for a wondrous sharer, diners are sure to be delighted from the very first bite.
Next up, the mouth-watering main courses feature plenty from both cuisine types, with a variety of Mexican specialties working alongside an array of pizza, pasta and grilled options in a selection that promises to satisfy any palate. Particularly tempting examples of such can be seen in the hearty chimichanga, filled with peppers, onions, cheese and the diner’s choice of chicken, beef or vegetables, the glorious spaghetti pescatori, tiger prawns, squid and spinach in a chilli tomato sauce, and the tender chorizo burger.
Found on Southchurch Avenue, a mere stone’s throw away from the Southend Pier and a host of spectacular seaside views, Pieno-Lleno makes for a superb spot in which to conclude a day of exploration.
