A trip to an Italian restaurant is always a popular option for a posh evening out, and so is a night stuffing yourself with tapas: if you’re in Southampton, then you’re in luck, because you’ve got a local joint that does the both of them to perfection. La Tavernetta offers a huge range of Spanish small plates to start and a classic Italian repertoire of pizza, pasta, meat and fish for your delectation in their restaurants on Civic Centre Road in the city centre. Begin with calamari, garlic bread or pan fried tiger prawns before indulging in a spaghetti with seafood, a Italian Spanish fusion of penne pasta and chorizo or a pizza topped with any number of high quality additions, from traditional gorgonzola and pepperoni to more modern iterations such as ham and pineapple. Get your family together to take a trip into Southampton’s La Tavernetta – just remember to book ahead lest they fill up quickly.

Always enjoy visiting this restaurant as the food is always amazing and reasonably priced. My friend and I had 3 courses which were all absolutely delicious. Our waiter was so attentive and courteous, customer service in this restaurant is always second to none. Looking forward to my next visit already. Thanks La Tavernetta, keep up the good work!

Faultless, great food at a good price, friendly and quick service. Lovely restaurant in a central location that delivered excellent food. Will definitely be returning!!
We arrived early had no problem getting seated. Service was friendly, helpful and non intrusive. Food was gorgeous! I had beef tagitelle with mushrooms and cream, side order of focaccia, (shared) It was simply yummy. Another in the party had lasagne, nearly scrapped dish clean! All 4 of us were very happy with our meals, and coffees. Good portion size. Fair price. Nice ambience to the venue. Good location for theatre trip. Will definately be back.
Visited on a recommendation from a friend and we weren't disappointed. We got there early so had a choice of tables. It got very busy later and service struggled a bit as a result, however, the food, ambience and value for money was worth the wait.
Staff were super friendly, both on the phone and in person, the food was delicious, atmosphere was lovely, calm and quiet but cosy, off the beaten track and away from the crowds round the corner... We'll be back again for sure.
We visit this restaurant whenever we go to the theatre. The food was excellent and it is a family run restaurant the staff were very friendly would recommend this restaurant to friends
Food was great as ever, food took a little while to arrive though even though it wasn't that busy. Am always reminded when I go there why I always keep coming back!
Amazing food and service! Lovely atmosphere. The lasagna was tasty and was more than I could have asked for. We will definitely be going back.
