"Best Italian" - The Sunday Paper's Reader's Choice Awards. "Top 50 Restaurant" - Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Exposed brick, dark wood floors & rustic colors give La Tavola its authentic trattoria feel, while progressive touches hint at its innovative cuisine. The food is simple yet creative, elegant & certainly delicious - the kind of food you could eat every day or turn into a celebration.

La Tavola also offers one of the city's most unique brunch menus. It is a can't miss!

This is a great restaurant with great food and service. Some of the best Italian fare in Atlanta. Monday night they have pasta specials for $10 a plate. Hard to beat!

I'm from New York, where there is no shortage of fine Italian restaurants, and my wife and I thought the food was superb -- my cacio e pepe was among the best I've ever had and that includes Rome.

Ate dinner here recently for second time in 3 weeks. I've been in the neighborhood (or near it) for over 30 years, but these were my first times to eat here. Fantastic meals both times. I had the redfish (daily special) and it was perfectly prepared - crispy pan-seared outside and moist inside. Great flavor. My wife loves the vegetarian cannelloni. Good flavor, texture, and enough for two meals for her. Definitely a place we'll come back to.

After ordering wine and appetizers the hostess approached my table and informed me that the restaurant was closing down due to “maintenance”. There was no explanation offered, no incentive to ever return, no apology. I looked around and there were still people eating which was confusing. Not sure what type of establishment does this but I would not return nor recommend it to any of my friends or colleagues. Totally unprofessional.

Our favorite place in the city, La Tavola always offers great service, wonderful food and a dining experience that is a tremendous value for a nice restaurant with knowledgeable and attentive servers. We love their fresh, homemade pasta and creative specials as well as their regular menu items. This evening we had the Scallop Risotto, which was incredible! Unfortunately it is in its final days as a holdover from the Tomatofeast menu, so hurry in before 10/10 to get it! We all had the Braised Pork Shoulder, because it, too, was recommended by our server who said it was also a holdover from the Tomatofeast menu. It was outstanding in terms of the flavors, tenderness of the meat and tastiness of the accompanying vegetables. We left that evening anticipating when we might come back for our next delicious meal!

Had dinner with a friend on a Monday evening so the restaurant was not crowded. The canelloni was wonderful, the risotto with scallops was good. The wine was very good. I tasted two before I made my selection. My friend enjoyed the same dishes as me and she had a different wine which she liked. We both said that we would return to La Tavola.

This is my third time at La Tavola. Last week, we decided to try a very popular Italian spot elsewhere, and the entire time were wishing we were back at La Tavola so we made a reservation. Our favorite dish wasn't on the menu (the gnuudi) but we tried three other new dishes that were superb. I've never been disappointed at La Tavola. One of my favorite places in Atlanta

Superb attention to detail by Lauren. Excellent service by Alyesia (sp?). And the food was delectable. Fresh Ricotta starter - an overly generous portion with fresh bread. Refreshing and delicious. We enjoyed Scallop Risotto and the Quatro Formaggi Agnolotti. Both were excellent but the Agnolotti had the edge for me. And they graciously split our Caesar Salad for us. Also we cannot omit the perfect martini, followed by a crisp Puglian Rose. Finally, our enormous thanks to Fifth Group Restaurants and La Tavola in particular for participating in Dining with Gratitude in benefit of The Giving Kitchen, which was our reason for this dinner on this particular night.
