We went on the Sunday of bank holiday and fortunately we had booked ahead as the restaurant was very popular. Despite the number of people the service was great and we were not kept waiting for our food. The seafood they used was fantastic and everything was beautifully cooked and piping hot. Pity I do not live near Scarborough as I would go again & again!

Superb service, quality freshly cooked food. Good choice of menu.
Relaxing atmosphere, no feeling of being rushed.
we will certainly return.
We had two lady friends with us who were staying in Scarborough for a few days, we came from Bridlington to meet up with them and we all enjoyed good food with two and a half hours of conversation.

Sunday evening in Scarborough and hungry. Not wanting a chain, happened upon Da-Claudio near the top of the cliff-lift. Thought "Shall we bother to reserve a table" and were glad we did - the restaurant was full by the time we arrived. Clean and attractive decor. Tasty, complimentary nibbles set the tone for a really tasty meal with attentive service. The bill was astonishingly good value - the final touch to an enjoyable, sunny day at the beginning of our holiday. Only annoyance: I had to remind the waiter several times that we would like water on the table, but it did come with the main course.

We went here while on a break in Scarborough and knew to book for a Friday evening...

Even with 2 days notice we could only get a 5-45 slot which while a little early for us didn't matter too much on the day as we missed lunch due to a very long coast/beach walk.

Apart from it being Friday evening and the restaurant being popular locally, part of the reason for this was that there were two large (10 plus) groups due in and left very little other table room. One group was there while we were dining and although large did not 'hog' the waiting staff. This restaurant is quite small and large groups as we have found from experience do not generally lead to a pleasant dining experience for couples or small groups (3) like ours. ( one recent restaurant visit (not da Claudio) had a group so large and loud that nobody else in the room could hear their own conversations...).

So we were glad that the other 10 plus group had not arrived while we were there...

The food was excellent and modern (no pizza here) and we were served with complimentary bruschetta while waiting for our starters. The menu has some interesting ideas and modern takes on classics.

Good Italian food is never cheap but three of us dined with wine for 50 pounds so quite good value...

The place is very popular and several couples and groups 'walked' in looking for a table only to be disappointed and turned away. I couldn't understand why a simple notice wasn't placed outside stating 'bookings only' or similar. Booking is essential on the weekend evenings.

Overall a pleasant meal and dining experience.
