Bad service - took forever for even the water and menus Went downhill from there Ran out of cocktails and the ones served were heavy handed Food was good though But for the price, the quality of the food couldn't overcome the shortcomings 7/10

The atmosphere and ambiance of this restaurant is very upscale and clean. We had a Caesar salad to start. The salad is their rendition, but not very appetizing, we were hoping for better Caesar. The pizza was just okay, not close to great. Few toppings...with expanded crust. There are better restaurants in Cebu.More

We were a group of twelve seniors celebrating Mother's day. We ordered many dishes for sharing including beet salad Seafood pasta, Pizza, Beef stroganoff, Chicken Parnesion, Creme Broulle and more. Service was excellent, staff was friendly and the restaurant was clean. Dishes were promptly removed...when finished and everyone had only favorable comments. So much so, we intend to return for Father's day.More

Pasta is excellent while pizza is not bad. Difficult to find as the restaurant is located at a outdoor area. Price is at the high side and service is just average- the waitress kept suggest on the most expensive items in the menu.

If you're looking for exceptional Italian fine dining experience in Cebu - Tavolata is the place to go. From the reservation, to the accessibility of the location, the charm of staff, the quality of service and the sumptuous Italian cuisines to the bill-out- end-to-end five...star dining experience. We've been here several times, and we will surely be back for more.More

Having had two sumptuous meals at this modern restaurant I can clearly claim it's in a different league than every other Italian here in Cebu that I've tried. This is authentic Italian food (not Americans idea of authentic Italian food) and it doesn't disappoint. Portions...are generous and are pleasing to the eyes, nose and pallet. For the quality you get I feel the price is very reasonable. Service is also impeccably proper, friendly and quick.More

Such a lovely place. We went there based on Tripadvisor reviews and read that it was somewhat expensive. Now, the prices were definitely lower than what we were expecting (think of 350-700 pesos per main course). So not too expensive unlike what others mentioned here....The food however was as amazing as everyone says. This must have been close to the best seafood pasta I ever had in my life. The seafood was very diverse and absolutely delicious. Can only recommend this place!More

The bread was great, the pasta was good, but there is something missing still. Its a standard issue here in the Philippines, the food is either too extreme assuming that is what it should be....or the other extreme catering to the local palate. I think...restaurants should start saying if they are authentic only if they truely are, otherwise just say with a local twist.More

As expected! Had a weekend at Cebu City as part of an incentive given by my local Supplier. I based my descision to eat at some top rated Trip Advisor restaurants and true enough Tavolata did not disappoint. The Pizza was superb as well as...the seafood pasta. Service was excellent also.

I loved Tavolata. I frequent it quite often until this experience. This is the only restaurant I know who thinks they’re not responsible when a large flying cockroach crawls on you and ends up at the middle of your dining table next to your food....We were midway through our dinner when the dish I ordered arrived. Loved their Sea Bass until a large flying cockroach joined us for dinner. I only had a bite of my fish and stopped eating. It was so gross. It’s good my cousin used her napkin to put over the huge cockroach before it flew off towards a full restaurant. The management stated they’re not responsible for the cockroach because they’re part of a building complex. Funny, they’re the only restaurant in the strip and the first establishment in the complex. I know what happened can happen to anyone anytime. I’m very lucky it’s never happened to me before and I eat out 5-6 times a week. When I shared the story to the other restaurants I go to and asked what they would do, all their response is to zero out the table and apologize for the incident. It’s unfortunate that this upscale restaurant think they’re special and don’t care about their clients’ grotesque experience. So, if you do plan to enter any Abaca Group of restaurants, be prepared for anything to happen and for the management to do nothing about it.More

I am a big fan of pizza and this place really has mastered how to make good and tasty ones. I was so excited to go back the night before my flight out of Cebu and ended in a not so good pizzeria which I...regretted straight away. Quite fancy decor as well and perfect to bring someone on a date.More

The ambiance is a classy, industrial feel with good size tables for shared dishes and comfy chairs for lingering and enjoying your meal. But more than the ambiance, it's the food that's exceptional! The crust of the pizza is thin and crisp but the edges...are like a good sourdough bread. The ingredients used are premium quality. My mom's all time favourite is the vongole. I love the chicken cannelloni but it's not always on the menu. The steak and sea bass are pretty good too! Everything in this restaurant is actually really delicious!More
