“Loved it!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

We read the reviews on TA and, sure enough, the restaurant is tiny. We decided to use a bit of strategy and turn up around 8:00ish in the hopes that the early diners would just be finishing up. It seemed to work as we got a table immediately but within 10 minutes 2 others parties were turned away.
We were staying in Ingleton for 3 nights and we liked it so much we ate here twice.
We had the pizzas with salad side dishes. As has been noted before these pizzas are the thicker, wetter style rather than thin and crispy but we both enjoyed them very much. We followed that up by sharing a home made chocolate and hazelnut dessert which looked incredibly rich but was delicious and surprisingly light. We also had cappuccinos and a lip-smacking bottle of red wine. I can't remember the exact amount of the final bill but I remember it seemed outstanding value to us.
The service was mainly handled by two different young ladies, both extremely welcoming and efficient. The owner / chef also popped out of the kitchen a couple of times.
All in all... very good!

“Intimate dining experience”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

This is a very small, only 14 seat restaurant, but don't let that put you off. You cannot book a table, so we waited outside to ensure we got a table and it was well worth the wait. We had a variety of starters and main courses, none of which disappointed. We had pasta and pizzas but other meat dishes were available. As it is only small we chatted to other diners, making for an very pleasant experience. They all agreed the food was excellent.

“Pepe does it again!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We visit Ingleton every summer for a walking holiday. Our holiday would not be complete without a visit to La Tavernetta, the food is to die for! Sometimes you have to wait for a table as there is no bookings allowed, but well worth the wait. We have also had take away pizza if no table available and these are just as nice, no soggy bases here! You can tell after the first mouthful that every ingredient is fresh produce and made with love. Well done Pepe and his team.

“Italian”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

This is a very small (14 seater) restaurant which is much in demand and rightly so. We waited over an hour to get a table but it was worth the wait. The menu is not vast but food is freshly cooked upon order.
The service was a little slow, but the standard of the food more than made up for this.
If you visit one restaurant in Ingleton, make it this one.
