From the moment we stepped into the restaurant, everything was excellent. The waitress was very pleasant and the food was excellent. If you are in Whitby, take the time to visit this Gem.

Recently visited with my family to celebrate my mother’s birthday. It was another great visit where three of us throughly enjoyed their whole fish dinners. Service was friendly and prompt, prices were reasonable and most importantly the food was very good overall. We’ll be back!

This is a fantastic restaurant, and the only reason it didn't get 5 stars, is that it is bit crowed, ie a very small space. Very good service, almost overly informational. Evenly paced, the one evening my friend and I stayed very late and felt...More

We went for lunch the day of the snow storm, so only four tables were occupied. The kitchen is open, so you do hear some noise. There is no carpeting or tablecloths. The food is excellent though. Hope this helps.

A TAVOLA means "to the table". Regardless of our cultural background, when the call goes out for everyone to come "to the table" we all understand that it's time to eat! We sit...We eat...We drink...We come together as a family. So, here we say "A TAVOLA!" Come and enjoy flavourful cuisine inspired by a variety of Mediterranean regions. While working in partnership with local Durham farmers, our Executive Chef, Vito Clemente, will be showcasing his undeniable talent by handcrafting all his signature dishes with true Mediterranean flare. The aroma of freshly baked breads, pastries and wonderful spices and herbs will fill the air, guaranteed to open up your appetite. We also have a variety of GLUTEN FREE pastas, breads and pastries. Chef Vito Clemente promises that you will never leave his table hungry! We opened our doors on February 14, 2014, but our dreams of creating a Mediterranean style bistro, showcasing farm fresh and local ingredients, has been a long time coming. The most important thing to A TAVOLA BISTRO is to bring QUALITY and HONESTY to all our food and service. We are focused on being a leader in the food and service industry, showing you the importance of slow food, not fast food...Handcrafted, not store bought...Fresh, not processed...By using local ingredients that support our Canadian sustainability. We offer the best dining experience in Durham - you get special one-on-one attention. We have a lot of fun here, which means our employees are happy. Our customers are really important to us, and our friendly, inviting and knowledgeable staff makes certain that you are treated just like family and you are 100% satisfied.
