La Tavola is neighborhood gem. It is not elegant but it is a very nice and comfortable space. The waite staff has been there for some time and they know the menu and create a very friendly environment. The food is excellent, some traditional favorites but always some specials and new takes on classics. La Tavola is a great value; you can pay more, but you are not going to get a better dinner.
Have a wonderful lunch! The service was outstanding and the food was amazing, and true to their word save room for dessert.....so so good!
Service was amazing! Our server, Chris, was very nice and explained the menu to us
Our entire dinner experience at La Tavola was excellent. The food selections such as the homemade pasta and desert menu set the food aside from other restaurants in Little Italy. The service was very friendly. We even had the opportunity to meet Chef Carlo at the table which made our dinner really special. I plan on returning to La Tavola with my friends.
Food and service exceeded expectations! Pasta and desserts were amazing. Would love to try the chefs tasting menu
Will definitely be back next time we’re in Baltimore
My daughter and I had a lovely lunch and appreciated the friendly greeting by the manager and the efficient service from the server. The food was outstanding - the house made ravioli alla cream and the capellini were outstandingly delicious, as were both salads- insalata mista & caprese. Pizza Margherita was so tasty & the crust perfect! Save room for affogato!
Best restaurant in Little Italy. A group of us took a friend there for lunch and had a marvelous time. Most of the time, we were the only ones in the restaurant. The foot was outstanding, as was the service.
By chance we hit a 3 for 33 Tuesday - and wine pairing for a total of 50. That’s a bargain...
Very good food and wine, nice service and yes, I'd like to come back!
For of us went for dinner. Everyone thought it'd to be excellent.
La Tavola is the best Italian restaurant in the United States.
The Brunch Menu is not to be missed. It is a 19 item buffet that comes to your tavola. You can choose a 4 item option or do an unlimited option that gives you 2 hours to sample any and all of the items. Selections vary from savory to sweet and every one is delectably delicious. The brunch is only served every other week so check with restaurant for the next date. I don't think you will ever be disappointed.
We came for our friends bachelorette party and we had the absolute best time. Every single moment was perfect, the outstanding service of everyone in the restaurant but especially Melissa and Charlie. They made our evening one to remember forever and the food was absolutely incredible. All the pasta home made and just divine. We will absolutely be coming back next time we are in town and telling everyone that visits to go here!! Absolutely wonderful.
My wife and I loved our entire experience. The service was excellent, the food was outstanding, and it came out quickly. Our server explained every option available for us in detail including our entrée, our wine, and our desert. We will absolutely eat here again when in Baltimore. Wonderful Experience Indeed!
Great food, very attentive service. However, the courses arrived quite fast after each other. This is normal in the US, but as Europeans we would have liked to have a little more time in between courses (to finish our wines, etc).
Again, food was excellent. And it was a nice touch that the chef came by our table to check how we liked everything. Will definitely come back!
Their service was impeccable
Great food and service
The food here is outstanding. There is no doubt in my mind that the pasta is home made. I have eaten here on two occasions now and the second time proved that the first was not a fluke! Outstanding meals for all of those at the table. Unfortunately, downtown Baltimore seems to be struggling to retain good food establishments other than the chains - so thank goodness for the well entrenched La Tavola - but perhaps this restaurant is a testament to the fact that quality lasts. Excellent service - excellent food - including excellent desserts - so leave space for dessert. My only minor gripe was the price of two glasses of blended wine. However, if that is what it takes to keep Chef Carlo viable I will cease complaining! Wine is optional - good food is guaranteed!!
Brunch is amazing! Who knew? Its small plates kinda like an Italian version of Cava Mezze!
The food was high end Italian. We enjoyed the Saltimbocca, homemade gnocchi, and duck pasta. The sauces were amazing and the red gravy was magnificent....best Italian food I have had in a long time in the U.S.... compares to Italy and my noni’s.
The homemade gnocchi melted in our mouths.
This was a wonderful treat for our weekend getaway with our friends.
Delicious food. The servers were friendly and helpful. We could actually talk in a normal voice
Wonderful fresh made pastas in a cozy atmosphere. Great service too!
We really liked our server, who was very accommodating. The menu selection was on the small side, but each dish we had was excellent. We would come back.
This restaurant is just outstanding. Beats expectations!
I was looking for a restaurant that was vegetarian- friendly for my boyfriend and would take my pork allergy seriously. After reading numerous reviews on many sites, I decided to make reservations at La Tavola. The service is excellent, wine choices are wonderful and the food is amazing! Further, they can customize almost any of the dishes to meet dietary requirements! We will definitely return and recommend to others!
Pasta is made on premises at La Tavola, and the attentive, friendly ,wait staff is happy to tell you the story behind the chef and restaurant. I had the highly recommended Linguini con Taleggio e Tartufo, a wonderfully creamy dish with salt from the cheese and a sweet hint of balsamic vinegar to compliment the saltiness of the dish. My boyfriend had the Lasagna Bolognese, the texture of the bolognese makes you forget the lasagne is prepared with no cheese. Both entrees were great, and we used the fresh bread to get every bit of sauce left behind. We enjoyed some Limoncello and a Torta alla Carlo for dessert. The three cheese cheesecake was fantastic, oreo cookie for the crust is a welcome change from traditional graham cracker. I took a particular shine to the homemade garnish, a chocolate covered strawberry. Freshly dipped, the chocolate had not set, giving an additional level of flavor to the strawberry and cheesecake!
Went for lunch and were not disspointed. The food was great, I had the raviolis and we also had the Brushetta which was particularly good with the home baked break and very sweet tomatoes. We would definitely go back. It got busy as time went on after they opened, I might recommend a reservation.
Outstanding, as always, and our server handled the whole spectrum of the dining experience, from 2-year-old antics to guests unfamiliar with Italian food beyond Bolognese, and our pretentious questions about wine. Thanks!
Excellent menus choices, food quality and fine service. Melissa and Team treated the four of us like family from introductions thru menu questions to food delivery and valued attention. We so enjoyed the dining experience and hospitality from a top venue and future destination choice.
Best Food in all of little Italy — will definitely go back. Not looking for a lot of ambience when I go to Little Italy, but just dimming the lights a bit would give this place a cozier feel. Minor point though and completely offset by the super good, nice, and efficient wait staff!!!
Best eggplant parmigiana I've ever had! Loved the homemade pasta in a fresh tomato sauce. The service was great and our waitress was amazing! She gave great suggestions on the menu and was very sweet. I will be telling everyone about La Tavola!
Wonderfully created cuisine that will leave you wanting to come back! The server was knowledgeable and explained the specials like he was reading a culinary review! Such a wonderful experience! Chef Carlos went table to table to see if we enjoyed our dinner! By far the best food in Little Italy!
Excellent food and service! The linguini alla scoglia was absolutely divine!
A delightful evening. Very good food. Very good service. An intimate place to take someone dear to you
Spaghetti neri al granchio was superb as always. I tried the lasagna bolognese and it was good as well. Good service too. Overall a great experience!
Really nice atmosphere, GREAT service. The waitstaff did almost too good a job selling the food, which was, itself mediocre. The final straw was the bowl of Parmesan that had been clearly poured out of a kraft container. You out that on everyone’s meal, you’re an Italian fine dining establishment, you can’t spring for real parmesan? Really.
Great good and excellent service (thank you Michelle!). We had a pre-Valentine's day dinner on 2/13. The food was delicious... especially loved the eggplant parmesan...had it as a main course rather than an appetizer. The tartuffo for dessert was HUGE....but we struggled through.
First time to La Tavola and it was excellent! Delicious pasta coupled with attentive and friendly service made for a great dining experience. Would definitely go back next time I’m in Baltimore.
