We had a reservation but chose to sit at the bar. William was awesome and was so familiar with the menu or drinks, wines and food that we wanted to order everything on the menu that he recommended ... great time. We will be back.

The food and service are always good. Perfect for Sunday brunch. We had a great Mother's Day brunch. Staff was friendly and took photos for us. The food was delicious. I always leave feeling full but not heavy. Atmosphere is calm and cozy. Easy to talk with family because not too noisy.

Second attempt coming here for Brunch just to try out their cabonara. It did not fail me. Spaghetti cooked Al Dente, absolutely delicious just as ever. I wish La Tavola will consider expanding, its getting more and more crowded and squeezy. Noise level is quite high, the staffs are extremely great in service, friendly and outgoing. You will definitely feel the positive energy in this restaurant.

My husband and I enjoy going to LaTavola for dinner, so we decided to give it a try for brunch. We were not disappointed. The service and food are always top notch, as well as the ambiance. We are so happy to have the restaurant right here in our neighborhood, we look forward to dining at LaTavola again.

We took our Georgia Tech grandson and his girlfriend out to eat so we wanted a place within near proximity to the campus. The location in Virginia Highlands was close, trendy and very nice. The restaurant was great , our waitress was wonderful, and the food was delicious. The facility is smaller than some but had a lot of personality. We had a most enjoyable evening.

La Tavola remains a brunch favorite--but it's taken a few steps back since our last visit. Our dessert, a hazelnut semi-fredo, was downright terrible—the wrong texture (chunky!) and with almost no flavor. We couldn't eat it. And why did they ever remove the flourless chocolate cake from the menu? That was a signature dessert. Regarding the entrees, the veal was still delicious but the addition of mushroom gravy is a grave mistake. It's superfluous at best with the eggs, and a salty, brown mess at worst.

Superb as usual. Food is always outstanding but it's the service that really sets La Tavola apart from the other 99% of restaurants we visited. The staff always make sure you're happy and treat you like you are the only patron there. That level of service is nearly nonexistent these days.

Brunch with friends. As usual, great service, amazing food-every single item on the menu is delicious, but the space itself just makes me sleepy. It’s crowded and dark, somewhat suffocating, can’t get out of there fast enough. Oh, and I miss the old vanilla olive oil cake and the olive oil drizzled chocolate with salt, and the dearly missed manicotti. Love y’all.

This restaurant is always a favorite for my family. Their spaghetti and meatballs are the best I’ve ever had and I highly recommend getting this dish. Their drinks are creative and tasty. The service is always great and prompt.

We’ve normally had great food at La Tavola but this brunch was the exception. The flank and poached eggs were over cooked. To their credit, we weren’t charged for the flank entree. The gnocchi dish was only okay. The French toast and service were fantastic.

The service was absolutely amazing! We went here for our anniversary and the staff is went above and beyond for us and had no problem explaining the make-ups of the different dishes. The food was prepared with an artistic level of perfection, the champagne was heavenly and the ambiance was deeply unique and warmed. We will definitely come here many times for the foreseeable future.

The best Italian joint in the city hands down. If you are looking for the perfect place to take and impress your date, La Tavola is the place. I especially love the ambience on the patio. It's like being in italy without being in Italy. Let's not even talk about the food..One word BOMB!! and the wines and cocktails OH MAN!! I love you La Tavola.

We had a "Welcome to the neighborhood" free entree coupon, so of course we ordered much more than we would normally, 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, wonderful basil limonada (with Vodka) and a glass and a bottle of wine (lovely rose). My recommendation is to go with simple.  The appetizers that had lots of stuff in them were not great.  The Branzino is sublime if you can handle eating a whole fish.  It is much more fun than having someone do it for you.

Service and food was excellent. Dinner with boss from Boston that is Italian. He had the veal and I had the fish ( Cobia) both were excellent. We were a little rushed and did not order desert, but was tempted with a good selection to choose from.

I chose La Tavola for the first date with my girlfriend. Even though is a long drive for both of us, it is worth it. We have been several times and it is our favorite spot. The service and the food are first rate. The kitchen is practically in the main dining room and the head chef interacts with the patrons. A unique place!!!

I enjoyed my dinner on the porch of La Tavola. I thought my mushroom pasta was good, but my boyfriend's veal was outstanding. Very pretty location and a good wine list too.
