My girlfriend and I went here for dinner. I had been hankering for a good Italian and seeing the restaurant advertised on Groupon we thought we would take a chance and try this place out. First off, I have lived in Italy for 7 years so I know Italian food. To say that this was as good as what I... More

Intimate, warm, friendly, fine dining atmosphere. Within walking distance of Baltimore's Inner Harbor District.

Lovely restaurant -- Italian music playing in the background was a nice touch. Pastas are homemade and highly recommended. Goat cheese salad used high quality and unique mixed-greens. Service was warm and friendly without being over-bearing. Make a reservation.

We entered the place to find an empty dining room at lunch time. That was a sign. The food was colorless, flavorless and took far too long to prepare. The prices were high and our waitress was essentially nowhere to be found most of the time. Do yourself a favor and find another place in Little Italy for lunch.

Every time I visit Baltimore, La Tavola is on the list of restaurants. The restaurant is in Little Italy Baltimore and could not be in a more convenient location. The bruschetta is a wonderful way to start off dinner or lunch, they use fresh tomatoes and provide plenty of fresh basil. There is not a single pasta dish that I... More

We decided to venture into Little Italy for a romantic dinner this past weekend. After consulting Trip Advisor, we opted for La Tavola. It was a good decision and while we will return, our first visit was a bit of a roller coaster ride. The highlight of our visit was the service. When we walked in the door, we were... More

My husband and I just returned from Baltimore and had a wonderful lunch at La Tavola. The weather was spectacular so we were able to eat outside on the sidewalk dinning area. It was a small space, but we were able to talk with some of the locals. The mozzerella fresca was superb, as was the pesto with linguini and... More

Today, I had a light dinner, making a meal of Insalata d’Astice e Granchio (crab & lobster meat / red & yellow pepper / celery / garlic lemon juice). Hubbie had Spaghetti Neri al Granchio (black spaghetti / crabmeat / cherry tomatoes / spinach / garlic / white wine sauce -- the pasta darkened with what I believe is squid... More
