I think this word may mean different things in different regions. I was under the impression that plantilla meant sole of the foot or sole of the shoe. I may also mean an insert that is put inside the shoe like orthotics.

It is interesting that this word has another completely different meaning.

According to Wiktionary, "planta" can mean the bottom of the foot, and "suela" the bottom of a shoe, but no "plantilla."

Plantilla, with the letter n, is a template (etc.), just as DailyWord states (also see DRAE, acepción 4). It is also the insole (acepción 1), as Poli points out.

Platilla appears to be a certain type of thin, textured canvas that a painter would use. Es un lienzo delgado y basto.

That's the way I use it. To recap:
- Insole = plantilla
- (Shoe)sole = suela
- The sole or bottom of the foot = planta del pie

And of course I love having sole for dinner, especially if somebody else cooks it for me.

I will have to agree with you on that.
Here in Spain when a steak is overdone we say está como la suela de un zapato. At least my Mum says it...
