"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!

My husband and I have been to La Tavola for dinner several times as well as with friends and family. We've always had super friendly service and excellent meals. Selection is good and rotates seasonally I believe.

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.

The food makes Tavola one of the best Italian restaurants in Atlanta and the servers are knowledgeable and personable, but here's a tip for new diners. When making a reservation, unless the weather permits you to sit on their comfortable patio, reserve a booth if dining indoors. We forgot to do that and had to sit at a table tucked between other tables and the open kitchen. That meant we couldn't relax because the kitchen was busy and our table kept getting bumped by servers and customers.

Sorry, we didn't care for this place at all. The food was not what we expected. It was too "artsy". This is supposed to be an Italian restaurant but the food was someone's definition of Italian. When we arrived the host tried to sit us at a 2 foot patio table in the front window of the restaurant when clearly there as plenty of seating available. My guy is big and there was no way we were going to be able to sit there comfortably. We were getting ready to leave when the hostess put us in a booth. None of the empty tables we saw when we arrived were ever filled. Seriously? The only bright spot was our waitress Emma who was outstanding.

As someone who lives in the neighborhood, I keep on trying this restaurant even though it continues to disappoint. No hostess to be seen when we walk in. A server came over to check us in, but said the hostess would have to seat us. The service once we got to our table was just so, so. The waitress seemed a bit confused. The food was just ok-nothing that would draw you back in.

As long as you don't mind sitting jammed up against the bar or it's patrons who are trying to buy a drink, you'll enjoy this restaurant. Best bet is to go with a party of 4, so you "qualify" for a booth. Couples aren't so lucky. You'll sit in the middle of the floor and every passerby and waiter will do their best to not bump your chair. But it's very unlikely that you won't be jarred several times during your meal. As to the food: although the menu is limited, the food was very good. And the service was really good, both friendly and attentive. Our lovely waitress suggested the olive oil cake, which we'd never had, and it was flat out terrific. So if you can get over the very cramped seating, it's a place you'll enjoy.
