Always a favorite with a neighborhood Trattoria atmosphere - Great food and service from a staff that takes personal "ownership" of your experience. You would never think this was anything but a local one-of-a-kind, it is, but it's also part of a successfully managed restaurant & catering group. Bravo. Absolutely consistent every time.

Great experience as always! It was my partners birthday and we had reservations, but sat at the bar since there were open seats. Will the bartender was great! Our dinners were great and also enjoyed to birthday dessert (lemon curd cake).
We will definitely be back for dinner or brunch soon!

This was our 2nd visit and was just as great as the first time. Our waiter, Randall, was very gracious and attentative as well as the other wait staff that were watching for water glasses to be kept full and any plates, etc. to be cleared from table. Very nice and relaxing atmosphere - one can just sit back and enjoy each course as it comes and one is not felt rushed to have to leave for someone else that is waiting for a table. Thank you!

This was my first time to dine at La Tavola and it was a great experience. The waiter was great and very attentive and friendly. He went through the menu very thoroughly with me since it was my first visit. The food was excellent, the ambiance was nice and the background music was upbeat and appropriate for the type restaurant it was. I will definitely go again.

This was our third dinner at La Tavola, and the food was excellent as usual. We both had the tagliatelle bolognese after the focaccia as a starter - both delicious! The disappointment was with the beverages: it took four choices FROM THEIR LIST before I found one they actually had available. The beer on tap could not be served because there was a problem with the refrigeration; the first bottle of wine I chose instead was out of stock; and the Italian bottled beer that has been on the menu since our first visit last year is coming sometime in the future. Finally found a wine by the glass that was acceptable. The server was apologetic as we worked our way through this maze, and while we laughed a bit, it really wasn't all that much fun. It remains to be seen if this was a once and done situation - I assume so - but it was not up to the standard I expect at La Tavola.

Amazing food! I love the option to have “appetizer size” of the pasta entrees. This is great for when you want a smaller portion and/or are going to an event and can’t take a to go box with you. I will definitely come back on my next visit.

Little pricey for a glass of wine...though, the wine was very good. The food was great. Biggest complaint, the seating was cramped. I had a waiter station and food pickup at my back and waiters were constantly around me.

Excellent Italian food. Booths are comfortable but tables are way too small and close. Decent value - on the high side. Waiter was good but kept recommending “my favorite”. Never sure why waiters do that. Why should I care when I don’t have any idea if the waiter likes the things I do? What if he likes spicy but I like mild? What if he likes olives and I hate them?

Three great things about this visit. I love bolognese but don’t like tagliatelle. They were happy to put the bolognese over spaghetti, no problem. It was also freezing in the booth and I asked if they could warm it up. They did. Asked the waiter for a wine recommendation. He did. Usually this means they will select the most expensive glass or bottle. Not in this case. He suggested a wine that turned out to cost $11 per glass. Very reasonable and a good wine. Overall-Good service.

Our dinner was excellent from first bite to last. Three of us had the Branzini which was cooked perfectly and filleted at the table. I also had the baby squid salad which was superb, and we all share two orders of the focaccia toast with fava beans and ricotta. All the courses were spring themed and tasted just as light and burgeoning as the season it reflects. Can't wait to come back!

Everything about our brunch at La Tavola was GREAT! The whole team, from the gentleman who greeted and seated us, to our AMAZING server, Austin, did a superb job of treating us well. The food was also delicious. Austin guided us in the right direction for our choices, and we couldn't have been more satisfied. We will definitely put La Tavola ob our list of brunch and dinner favorites.

Delicious dinner for a special evening out. I was a little disappointed that I booked it marking that my friend and I were celebrating my birthday and the waitress didn't even wish me a happy birthday or do anything for it. I even had my rewards card with my coupon and gave it to her telling her that I had my birthday reward to use. Will definitely come back but probably not again for my birthday dinner.

The food was outstanding and the restaurant is very good. It would have been an exceptional experience if our waiter acted like he was interested and if he had been somewhat pleasant. Our waiter had an attitude and seemed to be bothered by answering questions regarding menu items. He also seemed overwhelmed by attending to various tables as it was busy. Great food, great restaurant, so-so service.
