Very friendly, lively experience. Restaurant was full with a waiting list by 6:00 pm. Decided to sit at the bar. Keep in mind bar seating is limited. Arrive early for main dining room seating. Bartender Erin was busy with customers and producing drinks for dining...room staff. She still found time to provide perfect service. Pizza and Farm Board were prepared to perfection. You will be able to taste the freshness and quality of ingredients in menu items. Pricing reasonable.More

OK Italian. Wait staff was marginal and very average Italian dishes. Would I go back? Probably as we are in Arkansas not Italy.

We had such a fabulous meal (family style vegetable lasagna) that we went back the next night because there were so many other things that looked good on the extensive menu. The second night each of the 4 of us got something different and loved...every bite again! Great staff also. Made us wish we lived in Bentonville.More

We had the best time for dinner. Capable staff made the evening even better. Food and drinks were well prepared and of the highest quality. Very tasty. We ordered Chicken Marsala(sp?), Chicken Parmasion, and Beef tenderloin Mercela.(sp?). Dessert was great. Tierra Massu and coffee. Big...portions. :-) We'd go again in a heartbeat.More

Overall lots of good things here : good food and good service : pizza a step above , meatballs delicious, wife liked the Alfredo grandma liked the crab raviolis, calamari excellent, : what could be better : escargot no cognac or essence of truffle which...would put it a step above, my Marsala, not reduced, it was like eating angle hair with a weak port wine broth, also the chicken breast was not pounded down to make it more tender, I would go back to basics on this one. I will go back and visit again : overall good flavors and very economical. // Also please get an espresso machine, must for after dinner.More

Friendly staff, nice variety on menu. Bread was delicious. Reasonably priced. Pasta dishes were very basic; lacked flavor. Too much plain pasta vs meat/sauce/etc.

My expectation for an excellent experience was somewhat lower than if I was visiting Chicago, New York, Saint Louis, or San Francisco, However, I did enjoy my experience at Tavola Trattoria. The food was pretty good, it had a nice ambience, and the service was...excellent.More

Stopped in for lunch and we were impressed with the atmosphere, the TEAMWORK of the staff & food. This is one of the best dining experiences we have had in the last several months. The lasagna is one of the best in the area. My...chicken dish could not have been more tender and flavorful.More

We went on a very busy night and were seated in the alleyway outside the restaurant (this might have changed due to different CDC regulations). Our waiter wasn't great and very new but he tried really hard; he just was overwhelmed with how many tables...he had. But luckily the food was well worth it from the appetizers to the main Course. We didn't get a chance to have dessert.More

Yes, casual dress is fine. Wear comfortable shoes if you intend to walk outdoors.

You would have to call the restaurant and ask. I cannot remember. I do remember it was very good thin pasta not thick pasta.

I am celiac and was able to eat there. It has been too long to remember what I had. I do remember the waiter helped me order. I don’t always get what I want but I do get something that is safe for me to eat
