Real Italian food

Not a Spag bol in sight. Excellent little place. Very busy Food was very good. Staff were helpful and polite. The restaurant was spotless. Every one enjoyed themselves. We were given plenty of time to finish one course before the next was served. Top marks.

Me and my wife were on our honeymoon and went to ll piatto for a meal. Nicely decorated. The food was out of this world and the chef was even kind enough to make me something that wasnt on the menu. The waitress was very attentive and extremely helpful and polite. 10 out of 10.

We were staying near by for a 2 day break with our son and we read the mixed reviews but booked anyway, it's not pizza and pasta we can get that at pizza express, but it is Italian food well cooked and very tasty too. The only thing for us was the lack of a wine list but otherwise very... More

If you want pizza, spag bog or chips go elsewhere. If you want good Italian food freshly prepared, cooked with care and presented well with relaxed and friendly service go here! The best Italian meal I have eaten? No, but I have been lucky enough to have eaten more than a few meals in some very upmarket and fearsomely expensive... More

Real shame! I booked this restaurant for me and my partner for the 15th February for our late V'day meal. Table was booked at 17:40 and I got a confirmation email. When we got to the restaurant it was closed! and the opening times in the window were different to on their website! Very disappointing! I complained to the manager... More

Cannot believe the value for money from their Valentines set menu. Three courses for 2 people and a bottle of wine for 46 pound. Brilliant value. Starters we had butternut squash risotto with parma ham and rocket. Mains was rolled and stuffed rump steak in a tomato sauce. Stuffed with cheese and served with aubergine rolled and stuffed with feta,... More

A quiet, cold and foggy evening brought to life with another great meal in Il Piatto. Well done Claudio - you have never disappointed us yet. The surprise pudding was a fabulous treat.

We have a January trip to Scarborough every year and visiting this restaurant has become one of our traditions. Or it was anyway. There was no wine list or dessert menu and so we think there must have been a change of owner/chef. The food was ok, but far below our expectations from our previous visits. Service was friendly, although... More

After shopping in Scarborough we found this fantastic restaurant. We were welcomed by really friendly staff and taken to a table. We found the food beautifully fresh and extremely well cooked, beautiful flavours and well presented. We will eat here again if we are back in Scarborough.
