Hands down the best brunch I’ve had in a long time. But La tavola never disappoints so I was not surprised when I decided to have brunch for the first time...I normally come for dinner. My children absolutely love the spaghetti and meatballs! Wine selection is vast! And the service is top notch! My favorite Italian restaurant in Atlanta.

I was pleasantly surprised by the food and service. The place is small so I was a little skeptical because we barely had anywhere to stand while waiting for our table but it was well worth it. The service was great and the food was delicious. An authentic take on Italian cuisines with verything made in house. Best meatballs I’ve ever had!!!

It was our daughter's birthday. Our server was very attentive to our celebration. She wished our daughter a happy birthday upon greeting us, and brought it up in conversation during our meal. The restaurant prepared a special dessert. All in all, a very nice cap to a good day out in Atlanta.

I had the mushroom ragu which was delicious, as was my boyfriend’s bolognese. The atmosphere, overall, was nicely but the AC was blasting and it was very cold.

Went there for my husband's birthday. The staff knew as soon as we walked in the door why we were there and greeted the 'birthday boy'. Every member of the staff that delivered anything to our table knew exactly which member of the party of 6 it went to - no asking who is this for. The wait staff were amazing and helpful with suggestions and special orders. The food was wonderful - there are selections to accommodate a variety of dietary preferences (e.g., gluten free, vegan), fresh in-house-made pasta, and great selections of meat and fish. My daughter, who is a pastry chef, was very impressed with their pastries for brunch, not to mention their bolognese as well. Atlanta has a few great Italian restaurants, and this one is right up there at the top! I had the Taglialino mushroom ragu for brunch and highly recommend it. Can't wait to go back!

This restaurant ALWAYS stands alone in our opinion. We eat out a lot and spent 2 weeks in Italy for our honeymoon, so we know good Italian food. This was one of our favorites before we went and remains our favorite after we returned.

Our waiter Will did a superb job taking us through the menu & our dining experience. Never felt rushed though he was always available if we needed him. Great suggestions across all our courses. Fun atmosphere & a nice bar, along with a creative overflow space out the back of the restaurant.

We have eaten here six times for our Anniversary celebrations! The food is always delicious and they always treat us very well. Joan and I also like the fact that it is not so loud here and you can have nice conversation without yelling at each other. I highly recommend La Tavola!

We have written many reviews on LaTavola but are running out of superlatives. It is always nice to be made to feel at home, recognized by management and even servers who aren't on our table that particular night. With some other restaurants, even ones we like very much, there might be only 1 or 2 items on the menu we would consider ordering. At LaTavola there is not a single item, appetizer, entree or dessert we would not look forward to having for our meal. Drinks are among the best anywhere, strong with appropriate proportions of whatever is added. This night something as simple as spaghetti and meatballs and the ever favorite squid ink pasta were as sublime as always. The pastry chef outdid themselves again with the tiramisu. Can't wait to return.

The food is good, the service attentive, but our foursome was jammed into a table near the central food station. I could actually feel the heat from the open kitchen on my back. The table was barely big enough to hold all the dishware let alone a bread basket and wine bottle. And it was very loud. Rather than a relaxing meal I spent a lot of it worried about having a hot dish dropped on me. I don’t think I’ll be going back for a while.

The food did not disappoint as usual. The dining space is very crowded and we were at a table in middle which means that we were bumped into a lot. Try to get a booth or eat outside.

Took a new employee there, and he loved it. He was on the fence about the mushroom ragu, but one bite in, he thanked me for insisting he order that dish. Delicious as usual:-). We missed the cannolis though!

The team is always so accommodating, so warm and so gracious. Lauren at the door is the perfect way to start a dining experience. She is genuine, kind, courteous, professional, and always takes great care of us. Tomato Feast was spectacular. We thought we had died and gone to heaven with the appetizer, and then came the lamb. It was the so flavorful, so tender, so moist and cooked to perfection. The spices were out of this world. I wish the meal could have lasted forever. Thank you for a GREAT evening.

Always love the food and drinks. I would like to see them offer Tanqueray Gin though. Also dislike the two tight two-top tables in the bar area. Too crowded and the bar patrons tend to crowd you. Those need to be rethought.

La Tavola was recommended to us during a recent visit to Atlanta. This is a great neighborhood gem of a restaurant. It appeared like there were many regulars, but as a newbie it felt comfortable the minute we walked in the front door. It's a small warm dining room, and the smells from the open kitchen permeate across the room as soon as you enter.

Food was fresh, and we ordered a special appetizer and pasta that the waitress suggested, (both excellent). Pasta was done aldente, and the food was served steaming hot and in a timely fashion. The wine list had a nice selection of Italians and some domestics, at all price ranges.

This is not a fancy pretentious touristy place! I would say it is an upscaled local Northern Italian restaurant, with excellent service and high quality food. If you looking for a big place to be seen and get Red Sauce and Chicken parmesan dishes there are other choices in town.

We would certainly recommend La tavola and will come back next time we visit Atlanta.

Try the squid ink pasta with calamari. It has a bit of a kick to it that pushes it from good to outstanding in my book! Our foursome enjoyed the food and the service was very good. The restaurant is small, though, and the tables quite close together so it's not a place for quiet conversation or for someone who may be a bit hard of hearing. Just something to keep in mind.
