We had a group of 15 and were seated at adjacent tables for 7 and 8. All food was outstanding, especially the homemade pasta dishes, Many pasta dishes are available as half-order sides. Excellent wine list. Our server Lucy was superb with our large group. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of food and wine provided. This was our... More

We dined at La Tavola last night after the Baltimore Oriole/NY Yankee game. We are not from the area so we asked a couple of locals what restaurant in Little Italy is good. They said to go to La Tavola because the food is excellent and the fish is always fresh. So we took their advice and went there. What... More

We went to La Tavola for lunch after having found it on TripAdvisor. It was not very busy, although there apparently was a party of 60 upstairs. Despite the large group, service and food were very enjoyable and if we lived closer we'd be regulars at La Tavola. Ingredients were fresh, the meal nicely presented, and the food was very... More

This was a short and very pleasant walk from the hotel in the harbor. We did not have reservations but they were able to accommodate us. The tables were far enough apart to make the dining experience very relaxing. The atmosphere was pleasing and the staff were all great. The menu was varied enough so there was something for everyone.... More

We were looking for a nice Italian Restaurant with a good wine list and Italian charm. We were happy we found La Tavola. Excellent wine list. I was a little worried my 16 son would not appreciate some of the complex Italian recipes. Luckily he enjoyed the veal. My husband asked to have grilled chicken added to his pasta and... More

We chose this restaurant because of its high rating on TripAdvisor, and its proximity to the Inner Harbor. Though it is close to the "touristy" section on town, it did not feel like a touristy restaurant. My friends and I arrived without a reservation on a Saturday night, but they were able to accommodate us at the high tops in... More

I do not comprehend how this restaurant has received such favorable reviews. It truly was one of the worst meals I have eaten. I want to say the service was good but it could not compensate for the food. I ordered the Osso Bucco. The veal was so chewy it was almost inedible. The risotto that it was on was... More

Daughter, college student, recommended La Tavola so expectations modest. Thinking somewhere between Pizza Hut and jarred sauces. Was I wrong. Excellent food, great service. 5 star in both categories. Reasonable priced. Only drawback is tables are no match for great food. But who cares. Enjoy and go !

We were very pleased to find La Tavola through Open Table and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. The vegetables were as fresh and tasty as could be, cooked to perfection and the dessert, the cannolis, were homemade and presented with artistic flair in their design and tasted wonderful! Service was attentive, perhaps a bit too quick to remove plates as... More

Last night I had the pleasure to get dining at the restaurant "LA TAVOLA". It 's really a great place. I'm Italian and I was skeptical to try the Italian cuisine abroad. But the chef Carlo (an Italian) cuisine very well! I ate one of the best lasagna I've ever eaten, all fresh and home-made stuff. Do not miss if... More
