SIMPLY WONDERFUL IN EVERY WAY

If you are lucky enough to get into this wonderful spot, don't miss the opportunity! At first I wasn't sure whether it was a good thing or a bad thing to not be seated in the very small, inside dining room. But once we settled into our cozy yet comfortable table on the outside terrace, I realized... read more

Great place for a quiet brunch. Pork, meatballs & bosstock are all great. Attentive staff, great manager, who visited e ash table & remembers returning patrons.

We've eaten at La Tavola many times, but it was Mothers Day and it was my wife's choice, even though I have had problems on our last few visits finding an entree I was excited about. So I tried something new this time, the mushroom ragu. Zounds! It was one of the best dishes I have ever had in a... More

Sitting outside on a beautiful spring evening was delightful. The service was good- could have smiled a bit more- but very efficient. Food was beautifully presented and tasted great- seafood portion was small, but filling. Lasagna was great!!! Definitely should be on your radar while in the area.

Amazing service. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, AMAZING food. One of the best experiences in ATL. A must visit in a fantastic neighborhood east of Piedmont Park. Cozy and comfortable. Busy but not too noisy and a super efficient staff. The bartender Jennifer is too a rockstar. This place is a home run.

I visit Atlanta at least twice a year. Each visit includes dinner at La Tavola, with a stroll through its Virginia Highlands neighborhood beforehand. The menu is focused and each item is worthy. Last night's favorites included: Arugula and Beet salad; Spaghetti with Veal Meatballs; Tagliatelle Bolognese. If you have room for dessert, the Flourless Chocolate Cake is a decadent... More

Service is top notch and a lot of variety on the menu! Be sure to take advantage of the appetizers - they are not to be missed! The entree's are healthy but not over-sized portions. Fish and pasta choices litter the menu. Nice for a group of friends, family or a couples night out.

The usual efficient,friendly and not overly intrusive service but the menu seems to have become the pretentious blend of unexpected ingredients that plagues many Atlanta restaurants. Pardon my lack of sophistication but I should not have to google the dish at the table to figure out what is in it. My husband's veal was outstanding - my beet and arugula... More

It had been awhile since I last ate at LaTavola but be assured it won't that long again. I went there on Easter Sunday to celebrate the day and my birthday. Great menu choices and our waiter, Tony, was so well versed with every selection . We all followed his advice and so glad we did . The food was... More

Visiting from Canada, our reserved table was ready promptly and our server was very friendly. We found all of the dishes to be delicious, but the swordfish special was simply spectacular. I would return in a heartbeat.
