Just over the road from 10 To 12 Guest House, this amazing Italian restaurant served us three courses of tasty food from their full menu. There's lots of choice here with something for everyone. I noticed pasta and wine deals which we'll definitely go back and sample next time we stay in Folkestone.

I travelled from Bournemouth for the day for my friends Ruby wedding anniversary, attended by friends and family. We were a large group, 19 of us, but it was handled efficiently and with good humour (with magic tricks thrown in!) the food was delicious and the service excellent.

My favourite restaurant in Folkestone authentic Italian charm with wonderful service, witty banter and delicious food in a super location by the leas. If you want a reasonably priced meal with excellent food and fantastic service then look no further booking again next week for my sons birthday

Lovely food; veal alla crema was very tasty, and a great selection of delicious desserts. But unfriendly staff except for one young man. The two elder waiters seemed as if they really weren't interested, and only the young man who served the desserts was chatty and smiling. It was noticeable enough to spoil the evening.

Tavernetta never fails to deliver in service and food. The weekday set menu has some lovely choices and is very good value for money and don't expect to leave hungry! The service is always exceptional, friendly and utterly charming. It's not the cheapest place but for quality and outstanding service- you really can't go wrong with La Tavernetta

We arrived in town, spotted this place and dismissed it down to its looks and went in search of another Italian. Having not found another we tried it and was very pleasantly surprised. It might not have been the cheapest restaurant in town but was of a high quality. Glad we went back and gave it a chance
