Fantastic Neapolitan pizza

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... read 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.

The bacon bruschetta was delicious!! Very tasty if you like wood oven pizza with thin crust. Delicious ingredients. Service was good and atmosphere was nice. Would return.

Went to pick up pizza at A Tavola and the place was packed on a Friday night. They do not take reservations by the way. We got 5 pizzas as we had some people over and it ended up being around 80$. The fig and prosciutto pizza was pretty good, and the four cheese was also delicious. The crust was... More

We have been here several times. We have never been disappointed. Each time we've tried something new, both appetizers and pizzas. Everything tastes fresh, the ingredients are clearly good quality. The pizzas are thin crust with a wonderful sauce and your choice of many interesting toppings.

We enjoyed our lunch at the original OTR location. Service was a bit slow but they were packed on a Sunday afternoon, once we ordered the food was made to order very quickly. We tried the bacon bruschetta today, with goat cheese and balsamic vinegar, it was amazing! Drink prices are very reasonable as is all the food. A must... More

We stopped here for drinks and appetizers on a Saturday night before Christmas Saengerfest in OTR. It's a fun place, we sat at the bar and chatted with two different bartenders who were friendly and professional, great combination. We ordered tapenades, our friends had the pizza, we were all happy campers.
