In Cebu, this is by far one of the best places to eat italian food. Order the chopped salad, mussels and clams, calebrese pizza, and vongole, to name a few. They also have a fine selection of wine and the ambience makes the eating experience...More

Travolta is a modern Italian restaurant with great food and ambience. The bruschetta was excellent with fresh tomatoes and savory olive oil. Service needs to be spruced up a bit. Otherwise, it was a great dining experience.

First of all, they don't serve prosecco by the glass. That's so un-Italian. The dishes were good. We ordered spaghetti vongole. Although the pasta was eventually linguini as mentioned in the menu, the dish was okay. It didn't have that authentic Italian flavor but maybe...More

Description
In the vein of a traditional Italian Trattoria – a casual, local gathering place for food, friends and wine – our menu reflects the purity of tradition by relying on the classical and effortless approach. The simple purity of our inspiration comes from the superior ingredients and technique of the Trattoria.Everything on the menu at Tavolata is handcrafted, using only the finest local and imported ingredients. Our pasta is made fresh daily from 100% semolina from Italy using our own bronze die extruder. Unlike the store bought pasta most restaurants use, you will find the delightful chewiness of freshly extruded pasta a wonderful experience. From the fermentation of the dough to the homemade toppings, you'll certainly agree that our hand-tossed pizzas are irresistible.The joy of eating, both simply and well, while among good company is the aspiration of Tavolata. It is with this simple thought that we invite you to sit, dine an enjoy life with those you love at our Tavolata!
