Wow, what a ragbag of reviews - for once I am glad I never saw them before visiting Il Piatto. We four friends walked out of the Grand Hotel and because of the shoes I was wearing I said I didn't want to walk far...More

We visited Il Piatto twice. On the first occasion there were hardly any customers, and after an initial wait for our starters the main course followed soon afterwards. The cooking was of a high standard and, if we hadn't decided to make a second visit...More

From the outside, this restaurant looks run-down and we nearly didn't go in. It was only knowledge of previous TripAdviser scores that we continued.I'm glad we did, because the food was very good. However, the place was let down a little by the two staff...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I am troubled by this very negative review from Jacob B considering we visited the restaurant just a short time before eg 4th July and had a totally different experience. I wonder if there were different conditions in place on the two dates? You might say none of my business and we are all entitled to our opinions but when reviews are so poles apart like this someone probably ought to investigate. I rely on my fellow travellers for objective advice and opinions and expect folk to try to resolve problems locally first- sounds like Jacob B feels they got nowhere with that approach?
