My husband and I consider this our favorite spot to eat. No food is ever disappointing. The prices are good and portions are large. The thing we love most is the atmosphere. You must have reservations since the dining space is so small, but it makes the atmosphere nice. Always get the garlic knots!!!

In a nutshell, the food wasn't bad, but it wasn't spectacular either, but you sure got a bunch of it. Most of the entrees come with salad / pene or spaghetti / and table bread - which happens to be garlic bread. I had Chicken Flourentina, which was two decent sized chicken breasts served on its own plate with my... More

A nice little Italian restaurant with excellent food. Prices are reasonable. The restaurant is small and a bit cramped. Make sure to get reservations several days in advance if you're going on a weekend.

The nicest people. The nicest service. But the food is just not great. Cut the portions in half, reduce the sodium by 75%, charge the same price and you'll make more money and save someone's life. Oh, and make your own desserts. There is no excuse for buying a cake. It's simple and you'll be proud to tell people that... More

Very small place, not fancy, just Nice. They have carry-out also. You pay for great food, but at a fair price. You must have a reservation, the only way to get in. The service is about you. Trust me, you'll leave with a satisfied grin!

We have eaten at La Tavola many time since they have opened. The food is always delicious and a good value. Make sure to have reservations as most times they are full.
