Recommmended by our hotel so took pot luck and rolled up unbooked on a Saturday evening. So glad we did. Nice welcome, great food and wine, friendly and pleasant staff. Plenty to choose from on the menu, small but very reasonably priced wine list, Gavi at £22 a bottle, we almost had two! Will certainly come back on our next... More

Venture down the stairs into a warm welcome and very pleasant surroundings. We both had a £20.00, 3 course menu and was suprised at the choice of starters, a wide selection of mains and a very long desert list, and it included a coffee. Often with Italian set menus the mains are basically pasta dishes, but here other choices were... More

Really nice warm welcome. Really friendly warm environment with a great atmosphere. It's a lovely little family run place by real Italians and the food is really tasty. And for a Wednesday night, that's pretty good. My only complaint is food was served way too fast. Within 30 mins I arrived ordered and had two courses... It was quick and... More

I've eaten dinner here over the years, took a friend for Sunday lunch, first lunch I have had here. The evening menue is great, food and service excellent. I phoned ahead to book, with 30 mins notice. It was very busy on arrival, but we were offered a friendly greeting and taken straight to our table. Excellent service and food,... More

Popped in on a grotty tuesday night out a season. Lovely place, good menu (if perhaps slightly lacking on pasta options). Wine list simple but good and good value too. Food excellent and promptly servced too. Lovely chaps running the place. Bit expensive perhaps but utterly worth every penny!

A marvellous Italian restaurant serving wonderful food and very good wine. We went there during a brief stay and found it by chance, it is tucked away in a basement close to the Leas, behind old Dr Harvey's statue leading up to the Leas. Our main course was the liver which just melted in your mouth. Superb..

We have not been to this restaurant in over 20 years but it is just the same as it is. The service is good, the staff friendly and helpful. You still get broccoli, cauliflower cheese and sauté potatoes with your main course which are fresh and tasty but a little bit dated. My risotto starter was delicious and the dessert... More

While on holiday in Folkestone my husband and I booked to have a meal at La Tavernetta on the 10th September. We could not have enjoyed our meal more. We were made to feel welcome by the staff as soon as we arrived. I had Sea Bass and my husband had Duck both were cooked to perfection as were the... More
