Great dinner (and a show)

We got here 15 minutes early for our "reservation" tonight. (It's actually a call-a-head system) When we got there, we checked In and were told our wait time of 45 minutes. This time was not dull though as a couple of rather obnoxious people argued this "reservation" policy, demanding a table and... read more

Very knowledgeable waitress who helped us with an extensive menu. Risotto,beef,ravioli,pene pasta were all good. Service was very good and food was very tasty. The ambience is not quiet romance but more upbeat social. We were not disappointed but pleasantly pleased.

My husband and I went on a date here and it was nice. The food is good but not amazing. The restaurant is nice and clean. Service was great and friendly. It is a very loud place. Not like music it just noise of people and dishes. We will return. We reserved our table online a few days ahead and... More

This restaurant is right off the Square in downtown Bentonville. Come early if you did not make a reservation. The décor is Italian Café, the menu has many offerings and specialties. The best Italian food we have had in this area!

OMG, I am a big big food person and when I write a review on an Italian restaurant take my word for it. Good, bad, or indifferent. When I tell you that Tavola is a MUST go, it's a MUST go! Hardly anything on the menu is a dud and their FLIPPING DESSERT (DESIREE'S CAKE) is so good you'll swear... More

The location is excellent. They served very nice bread before our meals. But both of the main dishes we ordered - fish and veal, had sugar in them that completely ruined the Italian taste for us.

I'm certain the server didn't know better. When our coffee came in a French press she said, "It's ready to press!" She came back to tell us again, "It's ready to press, now." I poured clear coffee, I first thought someone had made a mistake. When the server argued with me that she just made it and it was the... More

It's not unusual for me to order salmon when dining out, but it is unusual for me to be so completely satisfied with its preparation and presentation, which is exactly what occurred Friday evening. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised to find an Italian restaurant of the caliber of Tavola Trattoria on our trip to Bentonville. Our meals were... More

Great Italian restaurant just off the town square. Fairly casual dress/decor makes it comfortable. Highly recommended.

Having read some mixed reviews before dining here, I wasn't sure what to expect. Also, as some have mentioned, the restaurant was extremely noisy, so I was concerned it might color our experience. I ended up being surprised by how good our meal was. Be prepared--the menu is extensive and a little overwhelming. When I first saw it, I felt... More
