Tavolata Cebu

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. 🙂

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! 🙂
