TAVOLATA is an Italian bistro that serves simple Italian dishes from The Abaca Group (known for really yummy Cebu restaurants like Maya Mexican Restaurant and Abaca Restaurant in Mactan.)
Its name means "to gather around a table", and the restaurant is designed to be a great place to hang out with friends or to celebrate special occasions.
It uses the finest ingredients from Italy like Finestra in Solaire, and has that informal feel, stylish ambiance and cult following like Wildflour in Manila.
It is worth flying to Cebu from Manila just to eat here. :)
