Reminded me of eating in Italy

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.

Although a little distant from center , worthwhile to visit, we set on the balcony and although it was 72 degrees it was very pleasant. Fine cuisine with very good choices Very good service and fire prices The market fish is most recommended

Well, I am Italian, born and raised, I've lived in Atlanta for about 4 years now. La Tavola is ceretainly one of the best Italian restaurants in town. Forget about all the nasty chains, if you want to experience something close to real Italian food, check this out. Only downside is the place is real tiny, the tables in the... More

The pastas were great. Had the clams and calamari which was good although it took a while between pasta appetizer and main dish to come out. Well worth the trip.

For years, this has been our favorite place to have an impromptu date, and happens to also be the best Italian food in the city. My wife and I have often found that our schedules, and our kids schedule, make it so that planning a night to go out is close to impossible. However, our secret is heading to La... More

I hadn't eaten at La Tavola in years when a friend recommended it for brunch. It was great. The flavors, freshness of produce, service, atmosphere - all met and exceeded my hopes for a comfortable Sunday meal in a setting that allowed us to talk and share.

We were not disappointed in this little place tucked into highlands neighborhood. Seating on the back deck was quaint even though there was parking below us as we were still surrounded by large trees and every inch of balcony had planters growing fresh vegetables and herbs for their kitchen. In fact the fennel next to us was used in one... More

I have always loved La Tavola. Seating is tight inside, but they do have outdoor seating that joins other restaurants along the balcony. I love the Antipasti platter as well as olive tasting. Entrees vary from night to night, and a lot of them have appetizer portions so you can get a sampling of several dishes. I highly recommend reservations... More

We met old friends for an evening of great food and conversation -- we were not disappointed! Waitperson was very friendly and helpful, giving us plenty of time to order and not rushing us at all. We sat out on the patio/balcony out the back, giving us an excellent place to talk and enjoy the excellent food. Highly recommend!
