I love La Tavola and have for years. It's nice but not too fancy. Not too trendy or loud. It's been around a long time and that's saying something in this town. Also, it's a small, romantic place and perfect for a date or special occasion.

Upon arrival we were barely greeted as the clearly overwhelmed hostess dealt with a large party with children. We stood in the crowded front entry dodging high chairs and staff with out a hello. While I realize it's a tight space there really should have been someone assisting the hostess with the multiple high chairs and chairs. After a 10 minute wait of being jostled and feeling in the way we were seated at a great table. Will not go on a Saturday again as it seemed everyone was in the weeds. Our waiter seemed harassed and stressed. We had to ask for water several times and also had to ask for a fruit garnish in my drink( which always comes with one). Our food was good but after the beginning we weren't in the mood. The frenetic jazz music was the icing on the cake. Was an expensive night for little return.

Always a favorite with a neighborhood Trattoria atmosphere - Great food and service from a staff that takes personal "ownership" of your experience. You would never think this was anything but a local one-of-a-kind, it is, but it's also part of a successfully managed restaurant & catering group. Bravo. Absolutely consistent every time.

This was our 2nd visit and was just as great as the first time. Our waiter, Randall, was very gracious and attentative as well as the other wait staff that were watching for water glasses to be kept full and any plates, etc. to be cleared from table. Very nice and relaxing atmosphere - one can just sit back and enjoy each course as it comes and one is not felt rushed to have to leave for someone else that is waiting for a table. Thank you!

This was my first time to dine at La Tavola and it was a great experience. The waiter was great and very attentive and friendly. He went through the menu very thoroughly with me since it was my first visit. The food was excellent, the ambiance was nice and the background music was upbeat and appropriate for the type restaurant it was. I will definitely go again.

This was our third dinner at La Tavola, and the food was excellent as usual. We both had the tagliatelle bolognese after the focaccia as a starter - both delicious! The disappointment was with the beverages: it took four choices FROM THEIR LIST before I found one they actually had available. The beer on tap could not be served because there was a problem with the refrigeration; the first bottle of wine I chose instead was out of stock; and the Italian bottled beer that has been on the menu since our first visit last year is coming sometime in the future. Finally found a wine by the glass that was acceptable. The server was apologetic as we worked our way through this maze, and while we laughed a bit, it really wasn't all that much fun. It remains to be seen if this was a once and done situation - I assume so - but it was not up to the standard I expect at La Tavola.

Amazing food! I love the option to have “appetizer size” of the pasta entrees. This is great for when you want a smaller portion and/or are going to an event and can’t take a to go box with you. I will definitely come back on my next visit.

Little pricey for a glass of wine...though, the wine was very good. The food was great. Biggest complaint, the seating was cramped. I had a waiter station and food pickup at my back and waiters were constantly around me.
