Simply fabulous!

When I say this is my favorite restaurant, I mean it! I mention it to everyone I know and stop in every time I visit Atlanta. The food is heavenly, their selection is great, and the staff is so friendly. Everything about this sweet place hits the spot!

There were four of us and we did not have a reservation and the hostess was very nice and offered a table on the back porch. Even though it was a warm night the fans kept us cool and there was a nice breeze. The food was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Good food and good wine!

What do you want in a neighborhood restaurant? Good food, comfortable surroundings, friendly staff, a welcoming atmosphere. After multiple visits to La Tavola (what better way to see how a restaurant really works?), there's no question it delivers all that and more. Restaurants that are part of 'groups' often take on signature characteristics for marketing purposes but then deliver cookie-cutter... More

We headed here on a Saturday night with 6pm reservations. We were seated right away. The service was very good, attentive but not rushed in any way. The menu selection was limited in my opinion. We had the cesear salads and they were mediocre at best. I'm not sure what was missing, but they weren't pretty bland. For the main... More

I have dined here many times with family and close friends. The food and service is top notch. The service staff is very knowledgeable about the food including specials. Missing a many establishments is the server's knowledge of a good wine pairing in a price range you desire. The staff has always made a great wine recommendation for the variety... More

This is a great spot for outside dining. Definitely make a reservation. We don't really care for inside but, that's our preference here. Good wines to start and I love the olive app. If you like arugula, I do try the beet & arugula salad perfect combo. Our dinner favs the Veal Saltimboco & Lasagne Bolognese. Bolognese sauce in this...

The Grilled tuna was superbly cooked; delicate and tender-almost like eating butter. My wife's spinach lasagna was equally tender and delicate. Our son chose the seafood item with shrimp, scallops and clams--all flavorful and cooked to perfection. This wide variety of dishes were done equally well--a real feat in a busy restaurant!

We recently moved back to Atlanta, and hadn't eaten in La Tavola for several years. It had been one of our favorites, and I think it is even better now. The service is friendly and helpful and the food is excellent. This is complimented with a nice wine list and an atmosphere that you can actually have a conversation. We... More

A friend and I came in as we were in town for a business trip and came in from the reviews seen. My server was great. (Sorry I forgot his name) The atmosphere was nice. I didn't give it five stars just because I thought my lasagna wasn't the best. It was good don't get me wrong but to me... More

We showed up with 9:00 pm reservations. We really wanted a patio table (the inside booths are not nice) and the other tables are just too tiny. When we arrived the hostess tried to stick us in the WORST table in the restaurant -- a 2 top that is flush to the back of a booth! It really doesn't even... More
