wonderful food and great service

We have eaten here on a few occasions and none have disappointed! There is usually a wait as the restaurant is small-ish. Everything we have had has been good. Watermelon salad, pizza, meatballs and gelato especially. Service has always been good and courteous staff.

While the menu looked intriguing with some great sounding offerings, we found the food to be average. The service was above average and the staff were all very friendly. We had a brussel sprout pizza. The crust was thin but a little soft and the Brussels were pretty much non-existent. We did enjoy the risotto balls but our bacon tapenade... More

A Tavola has a nice pizza menu that can be paired with a selection of great salads. Like the rest of OTR, reservations can be long but the 1 1/2 hour delay was a reasonable time to go for drinks elsewhere. Other restaurants quoted 2-3 hour!

Laid-back and less of a wait than it's next door neighbors, their food is simple, rustic, and spot on. Service is quick and friendly and I rarely have to wait for a table or a drink. Great drink specials and the date appetizer and fig/proscuitto pizza are so good I rarely branch out and order anything else. Great for groups... More

A nice small restaurant in Over The Rhine, Vine Street. Great spicy Marguerita. One of many neat little restaurants in OTR.

First impressions of A Tavola were "Very Trendy," "Sleek," and "Streamlined." The restaurant wasn't extremely busy for a Sunday afternoon, but there was a steady stream of customers coming in. We were seated and our waitress was a little stiff, but checked all the boxes with us. We had been told to try the bacon-wrapped figs, and were glad we... More

My fiancee and I had a Sunday evening dinner at A Tavola in OTR Cincinnati. We recently moved from Lexington, KY, where we had access to Smashing Tomato Pizza. In our humble opinions, Smashing has some of the best "real Italian style" pizza there is. And it's cheap! So, coming to A Tavola, we had high expectations. We sat at... More

A Tavola is located right on Vine Street in the (relatively) recently gentrified area of downtown Cincinnati. The food is delicious and works for people of many dietary needs. Their vegetarian pizzas are delicious and I've heard only positive things from my meat eating friends. The arancini (risotto balls) are a great appetizer! The asparagus salad is so good I... More
