We live three blocks from Tavolata. Being surrounded by restaurants we have a lot of options and Tavolata is one of our favorites, at the top of our rotation list. Normally, we haunt the excellent happy hours for our dinner out and Tavolata has one that cannot be beat but Tavolata is the exception as we actually dine here with... More

We live in Southern California and were visiting Seattle. We were a party of 5 and sat at the communal table. Due to a variety if mishaps 3 of us were almost an hour late for our reservation. The waitress and manager could not have been more nice and accommodating to us. The service was friendly and prompt, but we... More

We ate here on a Monday night and there was a pretty good crowd by 7 or so but no problem getting a table. The design is quite nice and has a really nice vibe. The food was good. I ordered the Gnocchi alla Romana which were nicely done but a tad on the rich side for me. For appetizers... More

We went their on a recommendation. The food was so good! The service was the best part. Everyone was so friendly. We were in the mood for something besides seafood. You can tell the pasta is so fresh and homemade. It was to die for! It was my favorite meal of the trip!

Love this place for happy hour (or non-happy hour drink & snack). Cocktails are well done and with Italian flare although the wine quality for happy hour is not ideal. better to select something off the glass menu. The food is never a miss, though, with well chosen charcuterie and seasonal crostini or bruschetta. This last time we had a... More

Some of the best Italian food in Seattle in a casual but still upscale atmosphere! Can be a little more expensive than other Italian places but worth it. I love coming here for Happy Hour experience! They provide full-sized portions (smaller menu selection) for a fantastic price and outside seating when the weather is nice. The pasta is always perfectly... More

We went for pasta, I was a bit disappointed as it was pasta dishes with a twist. I ordered the Gnocchi and was disappointed, they were shaped like two checkers stacked on top of one another, made with semolina flour, not potato and tasted like polenta cakes. The sauce was fabulous, but I couldn't get past the round heavy disc.... More

Tonight at Tavolata my wife and I started with the Heirloom Tomato salad, perfect. Then both entrees were amazing. The lemon donuts for dessert. The end to a great meal.
