Such a quaint little restaurant! We had the nicest waiter. The food was amazing- the fresh pasta was incredible. Would definitely go back. They even have valet parking right across the street which was super convenient!

We had a party that was there to work on the business relationship and discuss our business. The wait staff was perfect and that they let us along with our drinks and appetizers while we talk and when it was time to order they were there. Love the food love the place, will be back.

I went here on Monday for a date night with my partner and both of us loved the place. We live in the suburbs so I hoped it would live up to the reviews and it certainly did, making it well worth the rush hour drive in! All of the food was delicious. We shared an appetizer, each had salads, and I had the spaghetti cacio e Pepe and my partner had the squid ink spaghetti. You can absolutely taste the difference that fresh noodles makes. Mine was a Monday night special, they had 3 different pasta dishes available for $10 each. What a great deal?! And to top it all off, the tiramisu was to die for. I almost wish I hadn’t ordered it because now nothing will ever live up to it 😩 And our server was delightful. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and offered outstanding service, thanks Emily! We will absolutely be back 🥰

I forget about this gem of a place that we can walk to in less than ten minutes! We celebrated a friend’s birthday on Sunday afternoon and it was perfect. The food was fabulous, the prices were surprisingly modest, and the service was the best. We will go back soon.

We went here for an anniversary dinner and had a lovely meal on the patio. It was a Saturday night and it was quite busy but they were able to seat our reservation quickly. I really like the patio.

The service was great for our leisurely dinner. Our server got everything right and was helpful and friendly.

I had the squid ink pasta. It was delicious! Loved the house made pasta with plenty of fresh calamari and pesto. It was excellent! The bread and olive oil that they provided were nice!

The dessert really stood out! We tried vegan chocolate gelato, cannolis, tiramisu, and a brown sugar meringue with pears. The chocolate gelato was amazing!! It was so creamy and rich. It was so delicious! The cannolis were also great. The orange highlights were perfect! The tiramisu was light and airy with a perfect coffee flavor. The brown sugar meringue was really nice! Delicious and so unique!

Went here for New Years Eve. The food was very good, but not the best Italian we’ve had in the city. They stuck us on the back patio which was disappointing. That’s where most of their seating is. Service was great. Waiter was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations.

Our second visit - this time for New Year's Eve. The prix fixe menu was communicated in advance, so there were no surprises, but we were really interested in trying some of the fantastic sounding and looking items from the regular menu ... so we'll have to go again soon! No complaints about our New Year's Eve dinner - just not the options of our first visit that put La Tavola at the very top of our list of Atlanta favorites.

Been a fan of La Tavola for more than a decade. Last meal was a disappointment all around: distracted staff, flavorless pasta, limp seafood, poor presentation. Ambiance remains commendable, but sadly feels like a long-time favorite resting on its laurels.

Weird. Food was great as usual. Always consistent. The ”we” service protocol has to stop....please! Been frequenting for what seems like a lifetime and has always been an old neighborhood gem. But it seemed tired this time and if you don’t change the wine list by the glass we are never coming back.

We are huge fans of La Tav and have been for years. We were a party of six on this occasion which might be the reason for the poor service. Our waitress left us with empty water and wine glasses. The service was not what we usually get at La Tav. We have the veal which we’ve heard is amazing but they may have been just having an off night . The pasta portions were smaller then usual.
I won’t let my review deter you overall it’s a wonderful neighborhood classic restaurant.

Great Restaurant with terrific food and service.

My wife and I have eaten here many times since the 1990's and have never been disappointed with the quality of the food or service. Unfortunately the computer server was down last night and securing the appropriate table for us challenging. Austin, our server made up for all of that. The Caesar salad was on point as well as the seafood soup and the spaghetti. We missed not trying one of the desserts because they are always so wonderful. We were on our way to the symphony and had partaken in too many desserts over the weekend celebrating the Christmas season.

Reliably good, but the chefs need to pay attention to their seasoning. Some of our dishes were over salted, not enough to ruin them, because the overall flavor was good, but enough to throw the balance off and make them less than pleasant at the end. Other than that, the evening was pleasant with good service and nice ambiance.
