The Australian-owned Abaca Group never fails to amaze Cebuanos with its array of modern restaurants, including Maya La Cocina de Abaca, A Cafe, and Phat Pho; and this article will focus on one of their impressive dining venues, the Tavolata in Mandaue City.
Tavolata (La Trattoria di Abaca) is an Italian restaurant that boasts of a handcrafted menu, which means their pasta and other food are of finest ingredients only. They use the “finest local and imported ingredients” and take pride in their unique-tasting, hand-tossed pizza. Some of their delicious and freshly made specialties here are Campanelle, Herb-Crusted Parmesan Chicken, Slow-Roasted Pork Belly, and Proscuitto Pizza. They also serve various wines, making the place a perfect venue for gathering with friends, catching up with the family, and simply enjoying a casual yet sumptous dinner.
Aside from great food, Tavolata is known for its elegant restaurant design. From the wooden floor on the facade to the high and creatively lit ceilings in the interior, diners really enjoy the intimate ambiance in this Italian restaurant. Other cool features of the place are its menus written on brown paper and arranged on clipboards as well as its open kitchen.
If you want to enjoy Italian dining at its finest, reserve a table ahead of time. Tavolata's operating hours are from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM and 5:50 PM to 10:00 PM; and as the night deepens, the number of guests also tends to increase. It comes with a Wi-Fi connection and accepts major credit cards as payment options.
