My husband, son, Mother and I enjoyed a delicious meal here tonight. The owners are so friendly and accommodating, the food is prepared to order, it is so good! Best Italian food outside of Italy I have ever had. We absolutely love it here and will continue to return for more amazing authentic food!
Fantastic experience, food was excellent, service was excellent. The owners are very passionate about giving the customer great food and a great experience. Probably the best tiramisu we've ever had!
Great welcome from enthusiastic maîtresse d', who was charming and attentive all evening. First visit, so not sure what to expect other than what I'd read from reviews. It is a small cafe-like restaurant, with 20 or so covers. Menu offers the usual offerings in traditional Italian cuisine, but somewhat limited in the appetiser range. The price for 6 small prawns on a dish was £12.50. A few slices of cold meats £17! Pasta is £12-£15. Chicken dishes £15. Beef £20+ Wines London prices too. Unfortunately, the non-pasta dishes were quite oily. Two of us had upset stomachs afterwards. Sorry, but there's better Italian elsewhere in TW - and certainly far better value.
Lovely evening! It’s an tiny restaurant with great, Italian service and yummy food! They are very accommodating. Wine is good!
Absolutely stunning xx thanks
As soon as you walked through door you felt like you were in Italy-lady running front of house was a gem,and the guy in the kitchen knew how to cook.great place and the vino not bad.
Delicious food, great service and wonderful music - exceeded my expectations and we had a lovely lunch - would highly recommend!
Authentic Italian food and hosts. I’ve been 3 times and each time was exceptional. Highly recommended.
Overpriced. Limited starter and dessert menu. It is more like a cafe than a restaurant and prices should reflect this fact. Too few covers, I suspect for this to be profitable, hence the high prices.
Fabulous, a real gem of a restaurant.
Food & service brilliant.
Will definitely be going again.
Made to feel very welcome, great service and delicious meal
Brilliant trattoria, family run, amazing food and excellent service..... almost don’t want to recommend as this place is a keeper, and will be swamped before long!
OUTSTANDING, GREAT NIGHT OUT. YOU MUST TRY IT. Parking easy in the multistory, easy walking distance, we WILBE BACK SOON. THANKS.
Lovely intimate Italian restaurant. Don’t expect lavish surroundings but do expect excellent, authentic Italian food. This is a million miles from the Italian chain restaurants and all the better for that. The owners made us very welcome and we will certainly return.
Absolutely outstanding. We will return repeatedly.
What a find! So friendly, made to feel welcome.
The food quality was excellent and sufficient will be back soon
Although the waitress was lovely, the decor was very cafe-like, the meatballs were average and the steak was ridiculously overpriced considering it was just steak, no vegetables or potatoes! Beers were all far too pricey.
Excellent food in a very small space. Husband and I both had the veal Milanese. We shared the starter of olives and they were some of the best we have ever eaten. We felt a little hurried due to the small space and she was threatening to sit another couple with us due to lack of room. If you go with a group then no issues. Nice find.
We love going to La Follia - one of the best places to eat in Tunbridge Wells. Friendly people, delicious food.
Never judge a book by it’s cover! Would have walked by but for the recommendation, glad we didn’t. Great food and friendly service, could have been in Italy but for the rain outside.
Delightful little restaurant that is always a pleasure to visit.
A very friendly and welcoming reception on arrival at the restaurant. The service was very personal and the food good. There is a very comforting feeling about La Follia.
Excellent restaurant with great food. Very friendly and personal service.
The food was perfect a traditional Italian run restaurant would highly recommend
I really like restaurants that care most about the food and taste. Having lived in Italy for a while myself I’d say the dishes served were authentic,fresh and tasty. The pasta with clams was particularly good. Wine list fine, service was friendly and chatty. The tiramisu and espresso topped off a lovely evening out. Thank you.
This restaurant was so friendly with excellent Italian food.
Excellent food and service. Second time here I shall be back again!
Amazing and authentic Italian cooking created by a lovely Italian couple who care for all your needs. The only place in Tunbridge Wells with fresh truffle on the menu. A truly gorgeous and family-run cucina.
Small but very friendly restaurant with good food and lovely atmosphere. A little pricey but very tasty. Definitely would go again
We found this gem of a restaurant by chance one evening and have now visited three times. Every time has been brilliant. Really delicious, authentic Italian food in a cosy and slightly quirky atmosphere. Great wine list and excellent, friendly service.
What a gem of a place! Fantastic food, superb ambience, great wine list, very attentive and friendly service. Thank you so much for a lovely evening 28th September.
Great food lovely service good location. All in all it was very good
Excelent service and food in a relaxed and frendly environment
Very authentic Italian meal, with very friendly and engaging staff.
Our first visit and not our last. Such great food and drink and we were well looked after by the owners. This place is not a chain so expect to pay more than you would at a typical high street Italian but the difference is not that much money wise but the quality is so much better. I really should t say any more as I’ll never be able to get a booking.
Excellent traditional home made Italian food.
Will definitely return.
A wonderful gem. Great food. Great wine. Great and engaging service. Relaxed atmosphere and fun. Left full, refreshed and relaxed without wallet damage. Thank you.
Relaxed atmosphere and great service from small team of staff. Excellent authentic Italian cuisine and wine.
Went there completely on the off chance on a quiet Tuesday night. Although small it has a genuine Italian character that shines through, the menu, the food and the service. It always helps when you find Italians eating in an Italian restaurant. Utterly unpretentious, the food was simple and well cooked. We went to Rome at Easter and this is as close as I can recommend to the genuine Italian experience.
Bizarre. This place is a cafe but charges top restaurant money.
