It you want Italian, this is the place. We've visited Bentonville to see family for years and never leave this off of our MUST list. Nothing disappoints here....except maybe my waistline after leaving:-)

We was there Saturday night about 20 minutes before closing -- the Eggplant Parm was burned and most likely the bottom of the pan -- suggest you go to Carrbabbas we sat at the bar and you should never have a bartender who does know what's on his or her shelves -- he did not know if he had "Sambuca"...

We had an average dinner at Table Mesa the previous night so I was a little cautious to try Tavola Trattoria once I learned that they were sister restaurants. I'm glad I did because the food was amazing. I had a really good salad to start but the highlight of my meal was the chicken saltimboca. My friend had a... More

First, this is a family oriented, friendly community with a growing food scene- this surprised us as tourists. We had dinner at Tavola on July 4th at 6pm, a busy time in downtown Bentonville, yet we enjoyed fabulous service and food, and finished within an hour- just perfect. All of our dishes were high quality- nice ceasar salad, the meaty... More

Visiting Crystal Bridges and felt like Italian for dinner. We called early and were seated promptly. Then we waited. Our serving person seemed to be stretched too far and the kitchen was slow. Unfortunate b/c by the time we finished our appetizers a very large crowd had gathered waiting for tables. Both of us had veal dishes and in both... More

Reason #1, of course, is Crystal Bridges, but my husband and I have been here twice and love it. Food and service are great. Only complaint: they have a weird way of reserving tables.

A lot of positives in one sitting...good bread w/marinara dipping sauce; antipasto plate...a beaut! And, awesome tasting, too! Varied wine/beer list; friendly waiter; super veal saltimbocca! Hubby's pasta paella...too spicy/salty for best enjoyment...less is more, here! Too full for dessert...the app won out! Priority seating...no Open Table res.

I ate lunch here (stromboli) and it was good quality and quantity. Last July I had dinner here (salmon) which was excellent.

We met a dear friend here for dinner. It was within walking distance of our hotel, the 21c. Reservations are accepted. We enjoyed delicious Italian food: salads, bruschetta, chicken Parmigiana and osso buco. Prices are reasonable and really there was a lot of food. One in our party took a half entrée home. We stuck to water and iced tea,... More

Had lunch today. Our server, Skyler, was very personable and attentive. I had the Winter Pear Salad. Totally delicious. Huge salad, fresh, grilled chicken was warm. Great value. My husband had the Papparedelle Bolognese. Served warm, tasty, ground pepper and parmesan cheese offered. Sweet tea was sweet. Very nice dining experience. Pleased we had lunch there.
