Tavola is a terrific West End neighbourhood restaurant, serving modern Italian food with quality ingredients. Tavola continues the tradition of sharing food - family style, in a warm, contemporary environment. The dining room reflects a convivial atmosphere. Our Covid-19 dining room is at reduced capacity with tables 6 feet apart.



Burrata from the antipasto section is the place to start along with artisan proscuitto and salami - sliced to order. We offer a long list of specials including crostinis and salads using seasonal local ingredients. 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.

Nice meal. Terrific server. Asked for a table outside because I have always found it too loud inside to carry on a conversation. Front patio was great noise wise and the food was very good. Great evening all round.

We LOVE Tavola, everything was perfect. It was the first time we've actually felt normal in 4 months. My absolute favourite thing was the walnut-gorgonzola crostini, it was all I could do to prevent myself from fending off the other 3 people with a fork so I could eat it all. we shared Cacio e pepi spaghetti and spaghetti with anchovies and lemon zest. Both were excellent. We finished with the best dessert in the city - lemon Positano. SO delicious.

Having dined at Tavola numerous times over the years, this was my first time back since they've re-opened for in-service dining after the COVID-19 pandemic closed restaurants.

Tavola has done a great job in providing comfort to guests regarding distancing, reduced contact, and sanitization. Tables are well spaced out.

The food as usual is excellent and they have added a few items and changed a few others to streamline the menu. I look forward to when the bucatini returns but there are other delicious pastas to devour.

Overall a good experience, would recommend to check it out. Reservations at a good dinner timeslot can be difficult. The food is good, the pasta was not perfectly cooked but still delicious.

Arrived and was greeted not only by the smells of deliciousness but by a smiling person. We were seated and promptly had water at our table then our server wish I remembered his name ( red head male) popped over asked about beverages we asked to try a wine before purchasing the bottle he brought back 2 samples same price point :). starter was the burrata and prosciutto my brother kept saying “Mmmm and it melts in my mouth”.
Entrees we had pasta dishes my bro Bucatini amatriciana and I enjoyed one of the nightly specials neither of us had anything left in our bowls!
Dessert we both had Sticky toffee pudding- we are siblings so no sharing- this dessert was everything I wanted it to be again nothing left on our plates. Highly recommend Tavalo for a great dining experience

It was our first time at Tavola, it was really nice, great food and awesome service. It's a pretty casual place, which was cool, not stuffy like some of the fine dining spots around town. The Lamb Sausage pasta so so damn good, really.
I can't wait to go back, wife says two thumbs up, so the wait won't be very long...phew!

We went there as a group for my husbands birthday and we had the absolute worst service! This was our 2nd time at Tavola and we really enjoyed our 1st experience so decided to come back with our friends and needless to say, it’ll be our last. Our server was slow, food took well over an hour, no acknowledgement or explanation and when we brought it up, the manager got defensive and said it’s cause we ordered the steak. Our friends steak came undercooked even tho he asked for medium. Unacceptable! Would not recommend this restaurant!!
