Had the good fortune to choose IL PIATTO for Dinner this evening! Yours truly had the Puttanesca: anchovies, olives and pasta in a rich tomato based sauce and my wife had the Ravioli Italiani: spinach, artichoke and capers in sun dried tomato based sauce. Both,...More

We stumbled across this by accident and it did not disappoint. It was my husband's birthday and we had a lovely meal here which will stay in our memories. My husband had stuffed chicken and I had seabass, both lovely.

We were only in Scarborough for 3 nights and we fell upon this one on our first night. It was so good and reasonable that we returned on our 3rd night.

We should have tried this place on previous visits to Scarborough, the food was very nice and great service too. We have tried several others which are nearby, but this place edges them out.

Questions & Answers
Hi Kerrypooz, I notice that you have the same photograph as oberonsgh who also had a different experience to a lot of other people at this restaurant. I love the photograph as it happens. My question is that I am somewhat taken aback by the negative comments about this establishment as we had a great experience, I am wondering if there has been a deterioration since then or if there were circumstances that were different at the time for example a change of management or building works? I do rely on genuine, honest feedback from my fellow travelers to inform my decisions about where I go so its important to me to understand why there are such greatly opposing views, in other words, it does not make sense?. I do hope you will be able to help me out with possible explanations about why you may have experienced such a negative experience compared to the one that I and other travelers have had. Many thanks to you for taking the time to add such a comprehensive review, we do need to hear everyone's views.
