We loved Tavola, bruschetta toppings so tasty - chicken liver pate as good as mine and that is praise. Pasta's so incredibly tasty. Loved the anchovies and eggs, simple but high quality and beautifully cooked. Service suberb.

These guys accommodated our group of 14 very demanding foodies with amazing service and food. We were served family style with several amazing dishes. Some of the standouts included the hand-made pasta, perfectly ripe tomatoes, and the ribeye. The staff made every effort to make it feel like a family dinner. I would definitely come back!

Everything is great, although a bit expensive, The only downer is that it is a very noisy room. I prefer dining on the patio.

4 old friends were celebrating being together. It wasn't easy to get a reservation and when we did they told us we had to give up the table 2 hours later, which we understood. Interesting that if the folks wanting the table did show up either they had another table available or the reservation was a no show. So we... More

Absolutely spot on the entire time! Our waiter was the appropriate combination of funny, knowledgeable, and helpful (with menu explanations and help picking a delicious wine that wasn't too expensive). We had the chicken liver crostini (delicious!), the mixed green salad (simple but refreshing), the pulled pork ragu (perfect!), and the campanelle (even more perfect?)! My husband and I left...

Loved the food and the patio. Server was knowledgeable and friendly. Good wine list that is reasonably priced. We started with the fresh tomato and burrata salad. It was outrageously expensive but that cheese always is. The pastas were delicious - one with mushrooms and the other was spicy tomato. It was a lovely 30 minute walk back to our... More

Best Italian dinner in a long time. Friendly relaxed atmosphere....but don't let that fool you. The food is amazing! Date night once a month here is in the cards. Can't believe it took us so long to go there.
