Absolutely excellent (and genuine) Italian food

I seldom rave about Italian food in any restaurant, simply because we lived in Italy for three years and know the difference between authentic Italian food and "americanized" Italian food.

I have been to La Tavola before, but I don't remember having such a fabulous meal as I did last Saturday night. First of all, I expected another excessively loud dining experience, similar to what I normally experience but was pleasantly surprised when my group was seated in a corner near the front door. In that position, we could hear... More

We came here twice and both times were a 5 star experience. Once for dinner on a Thursday night and once on a Sunday for brunch. Dinner was a highlight meal of our vacation in Atlanta. This restaurant was recommended by our Air BnB host for brunch but after seeing my fellow Yelpers rave about dinner, I made two reservations... More

Six of us went for a delightful Sunday brunch at La Tavola. All were new to this restaurant, and all were impressed. We had reservations for 4 but called an hour before to see if they could accommodate 6. The place is small, so it was a bit tight but they accommodated us most graciously. Our server, Crystal, was extremely... More

I do not recall ever having better Italian food. The pork with poached eggs was fantastic. La Tavola has the layout of a small pub, narrow, dark and intimate. Crystal, our server, was attentive and helpful without being intrusive. It is located in the delightful Virginia Highlands area were parking is scarce. We were able to park for $2 at... More

Disappointing meal. It was price fixed which I would not do again but knew before arriving. I was excited about having the pork shank, if fact of the 3 of the 4 ordered the pork shank. What is served was shavings of pork and fat, no shank in sight!!My best guess was 4 oz meal. The 4th person had the... More

We came across this restaurant at dusk, just as the lights were coming on and it looked cozy and welcoming on a rainy night. Our server was friendly and informative, but best of all, made us feel comfortable. My garganelli with wild boar sausage was nothing short of spectacular , paired with a nice red wine to take the chill... More
