Visited La Tavola recently for dinner and absolutely loved it. Excellent setting, service and food. Even though it is a busy restaurant, there is no rush to "turn tables", the staff is content to allow you to enjoy your meal, wine and ant after dinner choice you make. Our waiter had an excellent knowledge of the wine list and made... More

This is a very tiny small place, so please make reservations before going. I was not impressed with the appetizers, as I ordered a Cesar's Salad and seems it was prepared with a regular commercial sauce you can find in any supermarket. After appetizers I was a little concerned about the food, but to the contrary, the spaghettis in red... More

When we travel to Atlanta, this is one of our usual stops. As always food and service were top notch. Their patio is so nice with the misters that are on it doesn't get too hot from the summer weather.

Wonderful meal and service. I had the Penne Pasta special with Heirloom tomatoes, garlic, basil and olive oil...simple, but cooked to perfection. It was my first time there, but it won't be my last.

Wonderful food and atmosphere! We chose to dine outside and really enjoyed the whole experience. The inside dining option also looked good. Food was delicious and server was very friendly! The Virginia Highlands is a very lovely area. Will be back.
