Went here for dinner with my husband. We shared the calamari which was huge in size but SO greasy. Both entrees were just okay. We wouldn't return and both felt the overly oily food made us feel pretty crummy for a couple days after.

Attended a confirmation party here. The foood is quite good, service was excellent. A little pricey, but worth it.

Went for dinner. Sangria was delicious, got the risotto balls for an appetizer which was delicious. The entrees were good, I had the salmon which was very good but the beans were super hot. Would try this place again.

Had veal parm....nothing to write home about. Service was good. The new management has done some remodeling, however the menu needs improvement. A bit pricey as well. Much better under the previous name.

Tavalo Smithfield is a good choice for when we want a decent meal (not from a chain...) and want to stay close to home. Food is very good. Tables for two are a bit small, so not enough room for bread, appetizer dishes, etc. The...More

This restaurant is everything an Italian restaurant should be. Dark and cosy decor with Italian touches, tablecloths, and wait staff in traditional long aprons. They have an excellent wine selection and the food was top notch. Traditional offerings cooked fresh, great bread on the table...More

We have visited Tavolo several times. This visit takes the cake though. My attitude every time we approach the restaurant (we drive from the Quonset area) is mixed. We have arrived and had to wait, we have arrived and been seated right away, we have...More
