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

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
