Italian at its best

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.

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

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.

I live very close to La Tavola but have only been there once. It was one of the best meals I'd had in a while! I got the rabbit and pasta, not sure if it's still on the menu. Had the cheese and meats plate as an appetizer. Wonderful for date night, I would give it $$$. Great patio to... More

My wife and I ate at La Tavola, and had a wonderful experience. Service was outstanding - a very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, fun server, without being intrusive. Both entrees were very good, and one of the best caesar salads I've ever had. We'll definitely be back!

The food is always outstanding. The service is great. We try to get here at least once a quarter, and usually more than that. The spaghetti with veal meatballs is a definite favorite.

Not only is this my favorite neighborhood restaurant, but they make legit Italian food. Fabulous fish, pasta. My fav's are the meatballs, vita pork veal and beef. They are just PERFECT!!! Simple menu, farm to table where they can. Matt is a most excellent chef. I think I might need to go now...

Food is always great. We try to get spots at the bar to eat dinner. Not very many bar seats, but you will be taken excellent care of if you can score one. We love the lasagna special on Sunday night.

I made reservations for two on a Friday at 6pm. We never been before and didn't know what to expect. We did the complimentary valet they had right across the street at the Wells fargo. Please come early if you need a parking spot as parking is very limited. By 7:30 valet was full. The restaurant is not that very... More

Had an excellent dinner with family this evening. Everything was wonderful, the food was fantastic and the service was great! Highly recommend it, it was as good as any New York Italian restaurant I have eaten at.
