Outstanding experience. Server was completely on her game - knew both the menu and the wine list. Wine list isn't large, but reasonably priced. Saltimbocca and Chicken were both excellent. I stopped short of licking the plate. Olives were a nice appetizer. Don't miss this neighborhood gem. Complimentary valet parking around the corner and behind the restaurant.

La Tavola is a special place with warm, knowledgeable servers and food that is absolutely delicious. This classic Italian trattoria is small and the tables are fairly close together, but that adds something to the warm "neighborhood" character of this unique ristorante. And, it doesn't seem to keep anyone from coming to enjoying the beautifully presented dishes that appear on... More

If you like Olive Garden for Italian food this is not your place. High quality, knowledgeable servers, great food. Only complaint, little cramped.

Two years living in Atlanta only to find one of the best, if not the BEST italian resturant in my neighborhood! Setting is wonderful! Servers, knowledgeable and friendly. Service is great! And the food.... OMG the food is-to-die-for! 'Molto Monday's' for $10 plates are a great way to get people going on the first day of the week. But the... More

a friend and I recently dined outside on the patio. Nice view, great ambience, super service. The food want bad either! If you are gluten free, they will prepare a dish especially for you. Everything was well prepared and served by an excellent server. Ask for Jennifer.

You have to overlook the people who sat too close to the kitchen or were not served as fast as they would have liked. I don't care if I have to sit on the floor in the vestibule. This is neighborhood store front first quality Italian food. The wife had an escarole salad with arugula that had her interviewing the... More

Two of us arrived at opening on Sunday evening, no reservation so we sat at the bar. Amazing bartender (sorry I didn't get her name!) who steered us in the right direction choosing our wine and our entrees. The grilled calamari appetizer was the best I have ever had! My friend had a pasta special..think creamy, kale added over a... More

This was perfect. Forget the negative side of other reviews of this superb restaurant in Atlanta, this was a great meal. The food was perfectly portioned, full of flavour and invention, the wine list was comprehensive and the ice creams were to die for. This is a small restaurant with a great ambience and a warm neighbourhood feel but the... More
