Me and my girlfriend, we have been twice in this place. The place is very nice and very clean. Pasta and pizzas are both very tasty. The only flaw is that they are not very fast in preparing food. Every time we try different foods....More

Had 2 pizzas. Its good to eat when you dine in but not for takeout. Its gets tough! Maybe heat up but, for the price it is a little small!!. Been here 3x. Give it a try.

The food is great! I am no expert in distinguishing real italian flavours, but have had my fair share of it, Tavolata is in the running for one of the best in town. Quite the fancy fine dining place. My favourite would be the pizzas...More
