Best Italian in Cinci

The pizza here is to die for. I've been to Italy and tasted Rome, Naples and Florence... this is as close as you'll get in Cinci (or elsewhere). Great menu, friendly service... busy as hell but with good reason. A no miss in OTR!

This restaurant is in a great location in downtown with lots of other places to grab a drink before and after. The food is excellent and the drinks are wonderful. Great pizza!

This is the kind of place that will boost your spirits just by being there. The staff smiles and you're greeted with a warm welcome as you enter. There might be a short wait for a table. But the quality of the food you are about to order and enjoy is well worth it. Don't skip on the salad. Try... More

Just had a lovely meal at A Tavola in the Over the Rhine section of Cincinnati. We have not been here before because this restaurant does not take reservations and we refuse to wait for 45 minutes+ for a table. This evening we got there early and were seated right away. Really liked our server--Stephanie. She recommended a light Italian... More

We ate here because another place was busy and I am glad we did. The bruschetta with goat cheese was creamy and delicious. We had a simple pepperoni pizza and the brick oven made a nice crust. We also had a couple of beers and the A Tavola pilsner was great. Our bill was under $30 for a nice meal.... More

This was our first time visiting Cinci, and I used TA to find a pizza place downtown and A Tavola didn't disappoint. We went mid afternoon on a Saturday and it was packed. We were able to get a couple of seats at the bar right next to the pizza oven so we were able to watch them cook the... More

Busy, energetic and fun place to eat. Terrific thin crust authentic Neapolitan pizza in adult flavors, not just red sauce, cheese and a bunch of stuff thrown on top. Appetizers and sides are unusual and terrific. The eggplant parmigiana slider is unbelievably good. Can't go wrong for lunch or dinner or to go. Have been to both locations multiple times... More

Of course in OTR this Saturday night we had to wait for our table even though we arrived at 5:45. But we knew that going in, that's par for the course arrving so late (!!), so we swooped on a couple of stools at the bar when hey opened up (well done Fiona), and settled in to pass the time... More

A Tavola on VIne Street in Over-the-Rhine is a friendly trattoria featuring wood-fire pizza. You'll find a warm welcome here. The craft cocktails are excellent, and the pizzas are, too. We had a couple of Corpse Revivers No 2, and a margherita and a 4-cheese on a recent Sunday afternoon. The oven is extremely hot, and the pizzas cook very... More

We stopped in here around 8:30pm on a weekday and were promptly seated, though the restaurant was pretty filled. The service was prompt, as was the preparation of the pizza. The margherita pizza was tasty, but a bit light on basil. The sausage pizza was great. I would definitely go here again.
