“Delicious food”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Tried their branch at Ayala.

Pros:
- Ambiance is good. Place is quiet.
- Food is delicious and is delivered on time.
- Polite service.
- No service charge.
- Price is somewhat pricey, but it gives value for your money; the price is OK.

Cons:
- The staff that served us was still inexperienced (not a big deal).
- Their wine glasses are very small.

“Authentic Italian food... Poor service”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

The dining experience in La Tegola is worth remembering except for some small details when it comes to service. The food is great and is one of the best...authentic indeed! The location of the restaurant is quite far from the city but it offers a great view of Cebu specially at night, very romantic. The service however needs some improvement. It took them a while preparing the food, knowing that Italian food like pasta etc needs only short time to prepare and be served fresh. Overall I still believe in this place, it is a must go place when you are in town.

“Service”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

We had a concert that day to get too, and we had to be there on time. It was the nearest restaurant to the place that we had to go to and I guess it was the one with the least people in it (meaning no one) in it.
The food was okay, not so fantastic. The pizza was fine and so is the pasta.

But we waited about an hour for our food to get to us.

“Beware of their menu scam”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

We ate here with my boyfriend for dinner in their Lapu-lapu branch. We just referred to their menu outside.When we ordered we thought that the menu outside and inside are the same hence we didn't bother checking their menu inside. When we got the bill,we were so shocked that it was "twice the price" of their menu outside. So we asked why was that and they just gave us a lame reason that their menu is "new" that it has been there for only "three weeks". When we asked that we wanted to talk to the manager or supervisor,they just told us they were both on a day off. We were so pissed and felt that they robbed us. We asked for our money back but they just told us we come back the day after.We are never going back to this restaurant. Very disappointing and misleading.

“Italian heaven”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

I went to La Tegola Busay branch to satisfy my pizza and pasta cravings. This particular branch is my favorite because it is quite off the beaten path and offers a spectacular view of Cebu City. They provide well-prepared meals in hefty servings. Their tomato soup was really good, with just the right amount of cheese and herbs. Their pasta was cooked perfectly and the pizza was very flavorful. For a moment, I forgot all about the spectacular view and just ate with much gusto! I have no complaints about the food because it was perfection. The one thing I think that they can improve is the bathroom. It is functional and all but it doesn't reflect the cozy and lovely interiors.
