Italian
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.

Tavola is fantastic! The ambience, service, and especially the food are perfect. I’ve been here for birthdays and dates and it never disappoints. I highly recommend the eggs and anchovies, my favourite dish!

Good food, but very expensive given the portion sizes. Service was warm, personal and with a few exceptions during the meal, generally efficient.

We recently had a dinner for 5 and ordered appetizers and 7 main dishes. All food was very good, a couple dishes were exceptional. Only small irritation was that one of our 7 main dishes was forgotten and therefore came late. Overall very good experience, we will definitely go back.

The noise level is beyond “energetic” and is probably in the extreme decibel range suitable for safety. A dinner out with friends isn’t much fun if you can’t hear or speak with them comfortably. It’s a shame as everything else at Tavola is exceptional.

The experience was mediocre at best. My boyfriend ordered the gnocchi and it was such a small portion of food that we had to get him more food after dinner. I ordered the pulled pork ragu and there was barely any pulled pork in there, which was disappointing as I was really looking forward to this meal. It was extremely noisy in there to the point majority of our conversations consisted of shouting “what? I can’t hear you” to one another. I took him here for his birthday and it was so disappointing. Did not have a good experience and nor would I come back again.

All was very good but with the tables outside active and the weather a bit colder, the constant opening of the slider door created a wind tunnel and froze half the restaurant.
