I was surprised that my sentence went wrong: 'Il piatto è bello, ma quello no'. Is it wrong ?

Well, you missed a translation for "questo" (this).

True. Thank you. But do you think the sentence 'Questo piatto è bello, ma quello no' could be considered as correct?

I think it should be acceptable, it's a common way to say it in Italian.
