Not what you expect in small town Iowa. The food is always great! A wonderful date night dinner destination. My only criticism, is they should have smaller plates during lunch. I always eat too much, so I avoid going here very often for lunch. Otherwise, try everything. It's all great. We've ordered take out pizza for business lunches at the... More

My wife and I dined here on a Saturday evening. The service was excellent, as was the food. The menu is extensive offering a wide variety of Italian dishes. Be sure to save room for dessert! Reservations are highly recommended as there are a fairly small number of tables and the restaurant gets very busy, particularly at the weekend.

Although the restaurant is pretty tight on space, the food is great. Their twist on calamari appetizer is something special - make sure you get some bread to sop up the sauce! Food and wine were great.

We recently tried La Tavola in Burlington Iowa. We had heard several good recommendations on the restaurant. We tried to get dinner reservations but it never worked out. Last week we decided to try them for lunch after a long drive we were ready to relax and experience a new spot. We were not disappointed. Located in downtown Burlington the... More

We have had take out from La Tavola a few times (mainly their pizza) and its been good. Finally had made reservations to have a dinner in the restaurant, and it was a very good experience. It is a small restaurant, and they are quite popular, so reservations are necessary. The service was quick and on-the-spot. The food was very... More

My husband and I had dinner here. It was very good food! The prices are extremely reasonable for the amount of food and quality. Most entrees could be shared between 2-3 people. Service was absolutely amazing. Would recommend reservations as the restaurant is small with only about 12 tables. Was busy even though we ate late at about 745 pm.... More
