“Excellent Italian Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

Not your average Italian restaurant. Food is cooked fresh and with a definite modern twist on traditional favourites. Attentive service and very pleasant atmosphere.

“Italian experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

Reservation ready on arrival, food selection Italian although not so much pasta dishes, the food itself was well cooked and presented..the only drawback, the service was slow, if your in a hurry then best to tell the patron on arrival

“Lovely ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Me and my partner visited here at the weekend as we were having an evening away. Found this place on tripadvisor and thought it looked nice.
Good points-
>Friendly staff. Obviously care alot about the business.
>Beautifully presented food. We had 3 courses
> nice ambiance. Nice lighting
> didnt feel rushed and liked that your space isnt intruded at all.
> reasonably priced. Three courses for two of us with all our drinks £50 good value for good food

My only slight critism was that it was a tiny bit cold when we first went in and everytime sombody came in but to be fair on the coast you cant stop the wind from blowing so maybe just ask to sit further up the restaurant

Overall very nice and would go again

“Great resaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Went to this restaurant merely by chance as me and my partner walked by it next to our hotel. Interior was lovely, atmosphere was great and the staff were super friendly. For the actual food, well it was fab as well! Presentation was excellent, and also very delicious.

Every aspect of the meal was great and really affordable for what you got. My only wish was that we could have tipped more at the end but being pesky students, alas we couldn't afford it.

“Excellent dinner at il Piatto. True italian quality at a fair cost”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

I found this nice italian restaurant, that recently changed the name from "Da Claudio" to "Il Piatto". I couldn't be more satisfied. The restaurant gives an intimate and comfortable feeling, with relaxing italian music in the background, not loud. Staff is very kind and polite. Claudio, the owner is very friendly and warm. Food is of supreme quality, with abundant portions. Compared to the other italian restaurants in England, this is one of the very few who provides an original but authentic italian menu with food cooke in the italian way and not in the "englalian" way!
3 meal course x 2 with a Prosecco bottle costed 52 pounds. Will definitively come back!

PS
Opinion from a picky italian expat
