We arrived without a reservation on a Friday evening a short while before a large party arrived. We were accommodated swiftly and unflawed service followed. In addition to the party of about 14 people, the restaurant was respectably busy. That was probably in part due to reputation because the food is very good. Starters, mains, desserts, not a mis-step.

It has been many years since I last visited La Tavernetta and to be honest I don't know why I left it so long. The service was impeccable as was the food. I will be visiting again very soon.

Stayed in folkestone before travelling to france last night 10/3/17. Home made food out of this world, home made desserts out of this planet. Great friendly staff especiallythe young lad that served us , he knew the menu well and very curtious. Next time we're in folkestone the Tavernetta will be again visited.

Visited La Tavernetta prior to visiting Leas Cliff Hall Theatre. Staff were extremely pleasant and attentive. The sweet trolley is to die for, ranging from roulades to cheesecakes etc. all home made. You just cannot resist. Very reasonably priced, we paid £100.00 for 3 of us including a bottle of wine for 3 courses. Would recommend anyone to visit when... More

First time visit to this very nice traditional Italian restaurant for a family birthday lunch on a February Saturday. There is a very good choice of dishes with a well priced set two or three course menu which we ordered. All dishes were tasty and well presented and we're obviously 'home made', deserts were delicious and they even brought out... More

Visited for the first time last month with friends and what a fabulous evening. From walking through the door until we left we were made very welcome by all staff. The service, food and banter was very good.
