We have been to Baltimore many times and eaten in Little Italy on multiple occasions, but this was our first time at La Tavola. We will make sure to make this our first stop when we return to Charm City. The pastas are house made and you can tell. Everything is fresh and served with a nice presentation. We mentioned... More

Excellent food and good atmosphere. If you are looking to satisfy your hunger for a quality Italian dinner, this is a sure bet. Interesting menu - pastas were excellent and stuffed zuchinni flowers were a great starter. Plus you can enjoy strolling back through the inner harbor after dinner.

Our dinner at La Tavola was very tasty. We had been anticipating being in Little Italy and having a fine meal and we weren’t disappointed. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was busy but our server was efficient and very charming so it made the evening even better. Please try La Tavola and I know you’ll be very... More

4th visit to this restaurant and always an enjoyable experience. The cold antipasto is really delicious! Had the gnocchi and seafood dinners which were really good. Good lemon drop martini too! Don't forget to have the cheesecake it's yummy

Great service and the food was delish! all pasta is homemade. And the Chef's dessert was outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, quiet setting and... More

We came for a very early dinner, late lunch before a 5 PM affair so the restaurant was essentially empty and quiet. there were a few other tables that came in as we were dining. The menu is not extensive 3 veal dishes,three chicken dishes,... More

We've eaten here twice and were very impressed with the food both times. Fresh herbs, homemade pasta, warm bread. I'm getting hungry just remembering it. I would subtract a 1/2 star for prices if I could.

Great food, great atmosphere. I ate there 2 nights in a row. First for me, the second to take my friends to taste their lasagna and their anti pasta salad. The second night, we ordered lasagna and a tomato sauce pasta for 4 to share. The servers happily obliged.

On a first visit to Baltimore we stumbled upon this place and were glad we did. The service was fine , the waiter a bit arrogant , but the food was very good. Everyone enjoyed their meals and I suspect they put some real effort into generating quality entrees. No hesitation on eating here again. Very good
