In the lively over the rhine district lies this Italian-styled Tratoria – a very lively place with great food and good drinks. Good choices of Italian appetizers and great Pizza’s. Go for different option and share them – we had 2 pizzas with very nice meatballs as appetizer which was more then enough. Nice variety of beers from the area... More

This was our first visit to A Tavola and we will be back. This place was packed and there is a reason why...it is great. The Ginger Beer and Vodka cocktail was light, refreshing and worth a visit alone. We split the Trio of Meatball and we recommend these. There is a Waygu beef, chicken and Boar's meat. Each with...

Best Brussels Sprout Pizza I have ever thought about eating. Went to a Pizza joint on a Friday during Lent. Never thought of that kind of topping but with the white sauce they had on this crazy topping made this pizza. Fun atmosphere with prompt service in this family owned pizza parlour.

We stopped here for lunch during a recent visit to Cincy's O-T-R neighborhood after hearing some good things about it - glad we did. Even though it was a Saturday, we happened to walk in shortly after it opened, and there was no wait for either seating or service. Everything was excellent - food, service, menu - prices were fair... More

My husband and I frequent A Tavola and it's a good to place for us spur of the moment. Everything on the menu is delicious. The wait can be long on the weekends, 1-2 hours and reservations are not accepted. We enjoy grabbing a seat at the bar and getting a specialty drink while we wait. Service is great!

Stopped by at noon on Saturday and had a thoroughly enjoyable/perfect lunch. Not too crowded, eggplant slider, pizza w/red sauce, sweet peas and bacon (great combo - try it) all on a thin, crispy crust. Our waiter was superb - offering suggestions, naysaying others and agreeing that lunch is great time to visit as it is not as frenetic. My... More

With the warmth of a Sunday afternoon family meal in Italy, A Tavola brings a bit of the "boot" to Cincinnati. The pizzas are the best in the city. I know, because I grew up in New York City. (CASE CLOSED!) The staff hugs you like Grandma, making you feel welcome and wanted. The bar is happening and you are... More

LOVED this Italian restaurant. We had some of the most amazing pizza. I recommend the prociutto and fig pizza. We also had one with lots of meats. Both were fantastic! Great service as well. Wonderful wine/beer selection.

I've tried to get a table at A Tavola on many occasions, but the crowds are heavy and I've been turned away. That is, until this past Sunday. We left the Bengals game early and went uptown and, surprise, there were no lines and plenty of open tables. We ordered a couple of their special pizzas and quickly discovered why... More
