We have stayed in Villefranche on 5 occasions now and every time we eat at La Tavola - it is the best food in Villefranche and the owner is lovely!

We ate here in April 2017. I had the Entrecote Grillee and my wife had the Pesto Pasta. Both dishes were delicious - the steak was the best I had on our visit and the chip wedges that came with it were delicious. Staff very friendly and welcoming too. Really good food at good prices. Recommended!

Clearly on the Front at Villefranche everything is massively over priced. This place is set back a couple of streets and is fantastic. Great food, very friendly family run business. Half the price of the front restaurants and twice the quality!

We were in Villefranche in late September and ate in la Tavola twice. The food was excellent and the service was better. This is a family run restaurant and it shows in all the right ways. All of the people who served us seemed genuinely happy in their work and it made for a great experience. They were glad you... More

This is our second visit to Villefranche, and on the first one, none of the restaurants actually stood out - now we have one we know we can head back to and be assured we will get great food and a warm welcome. We went back 2 nights running, and my husband had the veal al limone both times, it... More

Kind and quick service. Delicious meal, though not fancy or extraordinary. Definitely value for money, and would recommend.

We passed this restaurant and were attracted by the smart decor and simple but nice looking menu. The food was delicious and the staff lovely. Great location between the church and the seafront.

We walked past this place, and the smell and look of the pizza drew us to a table.. Great staff, very friendly, we ordered a bottle of rose wine and 2 carnivore pizzas.. All were demolished within an hour as they were insanely good.. It's a bit cafe looking from outside , but very good quality honest food.. Other diners... More

Travelling with an 11 year old with limited food preferences we chose the restaurant based on trip advisor reviews. The location was a bit off the sea front but we gave it a try. Table set up was a bit unusual, surrounded by fake bamboo but again we gave it a try. The menu looked promising and the specials seemed... More
