Tavola is a terrific West End neighbourhood restaurant, serving modern Italian food. Welcoming you is the team who brought you previous local heroes Tapastree and Nook. Tavola continues the tradition of sharing food - family style, in a warm, contemporary environment at value-conscious prices. The dining room reflects this convivial atmosphere with a 18 seat shared table that is perfect for both groups and casual diners.

The antipasto bar is the place to start as we feature Mozzarella di Bufala, Burrata, artisan proscuitto and salami - sliced to order, along with a constantly changing offering of crostini and salads. Also setting Tavola apart is the commitment to housemade Pastas and sauces - toothsome and hearty. Share some with friends and family along with one of our Big Plates - steak, roast chicken, braised meats and fish, prepared as classic Italian platters.

Been a number of times and the specials are always interesting and delicious. BUT they need to have a least one Italian beer on the menu.... seriously. Heard all the excuses over the years, none make sense or hold up...

Having dined here a couple of years ago, we found tonight’s visit to be just as excellent and delicious. The specials were delightful such as the kale salad, green bean crostini and perfectly cooked halibut. Service was proficient and friendly. The meal ended with the perfect sticky toffee pudding.

The service and atmosphere of the restaurant was excellent. The burrata dish was a great starter and the wine selection was good as well. My pasta dish was too salty for my liking and the pasta ratio could have been higher compared to the sauce/seasoning.

Beautiful food and wonderful service. We just about ordered everything off the board and were delighted with each dish: from the kale and fennel salad to squid ink ravioli to the pork steak.

While perfectly fine to order a dish for yourself, this is best experienced when you share plates.

Just back from another great evening at Tavola. We are constantly amazed by their innovative daily specials using the best of what’s local and fresh. It’s the best ‘fresh sheet’ in the city. It’s the restaurant we all wish was in our own neighborhood with its fantastic service and food.

Great restaurant with really good food. You can't miss the burrata! The only very odd thing was our hostess was wearing a tube top and seemed surprised by every request we had. The lack of professionalism both in attire and service was a bit odd.

Great service and excellent food, (we had the lamb shank and pork chops specials along a virgin cocktail "ZenZero" which were all superb) and the price wasn't too bad for the amount we had.
Our reservation was for 5PM, so the restaurant was pretty quiet which was nice. Can see the place getting really busy in the evenings.

Overall had a great time.

Great place, great food - it was our anniversary and was hoping for a quieter table - they sat us in a corner next to an extremely loud group of guys so we could hardly hear each other. Other than that, love this place
