I went to a work holiday dinner, before this I never knew La Tavola existed. Fantastic menu, we enjoyed the Pasta Fungi and Spaghetti Carbonara for entrees. The aioli with the fried calamari with yummy (ask for two and skip the marinara sauce). Finished with the crème brulee and several bottles of wine from there wine list, I would definitely... More

My husband and I often meet long distance friends for dinner in towns midway between residences. With that, we rely on Tripadvisor to find restaurants. This one did not disappoint. The atmosphere, service, and food made for a great night out with friends. And unlike some of the reviewers, we thought it was priced very reasonably. I highly recommend and... More

I will give this place another try down the road. I went in hearing it was upscale and a very classy Italian restaurant. I think it's nice but needs an update and a cleaning. We were seated in the bar area and I feel that took away from it. We could hear people getting drunk and swearing at the bar.... More

We celebrated a small birthday get together where everyone sampled each others choices...all were excellent...sweet scallops with a lovely tomato based risotto, eggplant appetizer wonderful presentation and recipe, carpaccio appetizer fresh and very good...the pasta says it all ..."home made" is the difference with good sauces. I asked if a half portion of the home made cavatelli with pomodoro could... More

Pricey but loved my diver scallops and tomato risotto with fresh corn--yum! The waitress took her time taking our order and never asked how our dinner was. My water glass was not refilled either. The atmosphere was nice. This would be an excellent special occasion restaurant if they could step up their service.

Food was average. Service was slow. Drinks were good next time I'll go just for happy hour! I think that says enough :)

Food was the usual 4-5 stars with the exception of the greens in my Panecotta (sp)...so chewy! These greens should have gone in the compost. I don't know how this one got past the chefs but details like that in conjunction with the slowing service as of late, dropped this to an average experience. Fortunately for them they've such a...

Awesome experience here! Food ALWAYS delicious, and the seared sea scallops are AMAZING. I recommend the red sangria, and fried oysters as well. Heck, everything on their menu is OFF THE CHART...never a bad meal here!
