I was the only diner in the restaurant when I ate, but this was because I showed up 20 minutes before they close for 2 hours from 2pm - 4pm. The owner and waitress were wonderful. The food was pretty good except that by eating at the very tail end of the lunch buffet right before they closed it wasn't... More

I am so happy I read the article when La Tavola first opened. This is the first authentic Italian restaurant in Rutherford County! Every time we visit, the staff is very warm and it's like going into a family members home. Every dish we have ever eaten has been excellent. I have eaten many specials and they have all been...

Our first experience at La Tavola was this past weekend and overall it was OK. The food was excellent, the wine list was surprising for a small place like La Tavola but our service left a lot to be desired. Hence the reason I can only give a rating of 3. While the restaraunt was full, I find it very... More

We went with our kids in May and were told we could not be there because it was Prom night and we did not have a Reservation. The place was great when the older family members ran it. It used to be a family place with good food and now its not my cup of tea. Never even got to... More

The worst food!! The chicken Marsala was bland! The salad was rough and the lasagna was tangy! People, abort the mission, divert, don't do it! Sorry to be so candid but it is disappointing to drop $50 on a meal and it be so bad.

We were in town for an event, and I returned with all of my family for a really great Friday night meal. The little kids loved their meals, and all of the adults enjoyed the flavors also. I had Veal Sorrentino, and my wife had baked Ziti. I recently had an excellent Italian dinner in a superb New England restaurant,... More

Myself and two business associates trusted TripAdvisor to lead us right and we visited this Italian restaurant because they are number one. What a great bonus to see an Italian buffet with homemade recipes. Three different types of noodles and sauces, pizza, salad, and a drink for only $8. Would come here anytime for lunch when I am in Smyrna,... More
