A.S. Fortuna boasts the rise of a new commercial property – Design Center of Cebu. The black glass finish of the complex gives it a chic and classy look. The arcade proudly sits at the vicinity of the famous pinetree of A.S. Fortuna along P. Remedios St. that some people would call the area “pinetree.”
Aware that the bistro is owned by the Abaca Group, we know that we are in for a treat at Tavolata Cebu. Tavolata, an Italian word for tableful or a gathering at the table, it sure is a great place to dine with friends, family or a date with your better half with it’s cozy and intimate ambiance. And we would advice that you make a reservation.
Travolata Caesar (395php). Egg, lemon, romaine and Pecorino toscana. No frills salad yet flavorful.
Tavolata is proud of making their pasta fresh everyday using the finest ingredients.
Squid Ink Fettucini (495php). Sautéed shrimp, squid, octopus, tomatoes and chili on squid ink fettucini. (iLuvCebu.com recommends this dish)
Campanelle (445php). “Little bells” with fennel sausage, braised greens in cream.
Herb Crusted Parmesan Chicken topped with marinara and mozzarella sided with spicy broccoli and arugula. (695php)
Slow Roasted Pork Belly with risotto milanese and gremolata. (795php)
Tavolata Pizzas are interesting for they don’t come in perfectly round shape crust. An indicator that each pizza is made and hand tossed just right after you ordered. If you are planning to have pizza at Tavolata, we would advice that you order it first and have the order prepared at the kitchen for it will take time for them to prepare it and have the waiter come back after he forwards the order to the kitchen.
I just love Arugula on my pizza, so this was my first choice – Proscuitto pizza (455php). Arugula, tomato and mozzarella on a Tavolata crust. The crust is crunchy on the outside but is soft and a bit chewy on the inside, yum!
Truffle Pizza (455php). Ricotta, mozarella, brocolliand asiago.
That definitely was a gastronomic adventure! Thank you for reading and join us again on our next piggin out session guys!
