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

We were quickly seated by a lovely member of staff. The atmosphere was busy but not overbearing. Absolutely delicious food and wine with efficient and friendly service. Would certainly go again.

If you're after a nice, Italian meal - look no further! The family with children are here two nights in a row, by request from both kids and adults! Excellent food, very nice waiter - and cozy atmosphere in the middle of the old parts of Villefranche. We had pizzas, pasta, lasagna and the house white vine (surprisingly good, and... More

The bolognese was indescribable and the portions were extremely generous. I would recommend this place for lunch or dinner. Price was extremely reasonable. We sat next to the owner who only spoke French but we managed to have a conversation throughout our meal. It was magical.
