Beyond Italian! This Restaurant is truly unique, like his owner-chef, Claudio, a passionate man on a mission: let the world know that Italian Restaurant translates into Ristorante - it does not mean Pizzeria!

Had a really nice meal here last night with my parents and 2 year old. Service was good and the waitress friendly. The carbonara was the best I've had in a long long time and the others loved their food too. No kids menu but a smaller portion was sorted out for my daughter who's a bit of a fussy... More

We went for an early tea over the bank holiday weekend; myself, my husband and our 1 year old son. The service was good; although seated where we were, we had the pleasure of listening to the expletives of the head waitress (presumably) reprimanding the other servers. We all enjoyed our meals and the prices were pretty reasonable for the... More

We had spent some time looking for somewhere with availability and ended up here, it was close to the hotel and we just wanted to eat after a long day. The hotel looked quite busy so this was a good sign. On arrival we were pointed to a table to sit at, not taken to the table, which was a... More

Myself and two friends have just returned home after unfortunately deciding to eat in this 'Italian' in Scarborough. Where do I start... Primarily the service was absolutely shocking! The young lad waiter had a serious attitude problem, didn't know anything about any of the food on the menu and was extremely rude and sarcastic! All three of us were served... More

I'm a bit confused with all the positive reviews and wonder why so many people think this restaurant is good. In the past, I have visited many times and, although it's never been an exceptional place to eat, it always had a good menu selection and was not expensive for an average night out. After a gap since our last... More

We went to Il Piatto at 7.30pm on a saturday evening. We were quickly seated which is good as there wasnt much room to wait in. The menu was quite basic but well priced. My husband ordered the seabass which was beautifully cooked and we got a selection of vegetables which were clearly fresh and of a good quality. My... More

When I pay to eat out, the minimum expectation I have is that the food I'm eating should be better than what I could rustle up at home. Alas, that wasn't the case here. Despite the bizarrely positive reviews, the food was fine but nothing to write home about. That would have been a three star review, but then the... More
