Had a great dinner here while in Baltimore. Would definitely visit again. Black squid ink pasta with fresh crab meat was delicious, as was the ravioli and the calamari. Did not love the cheesecake or cannoli (was average), but everything else was really delicious.

We're picky about our Italian. We find that most places overcook the pasta and the sauce can be watery. Not at La Tavola. We found them on Trip Advisor and the reviews were correct - this is one amazingly delicious place. Our daughter ordered the gnocchi in a pesto sauce. She LOVED it. It was a decent sized portion and... More

Went at 6:30 p.m. on a Thursday evening. Made reservations (it was restaurant week), however, it was pretty empty. Were seated immediately. Noticed that the chef was talking to the folks at the next table, giving them advice on what to order. We stopped him as he walked by our table and asked what he was recommending. He recommended the... More

We dined here during Restaurant week in Baltimore. I ordered off the Prix Fixe menu, but my husband did not. I like that they did not force us to both order from that menu. The calamari appetizer was great, however the caesar salad was disgusting! Wilted lettuce, runny dressing, yuck! The veal saltimbocca was better than average. The lasagna was... More

We ate here for my fiance's birthday and it was a tasty meal. The waitress, I can't remember her name, was outstanding and constantly being helpful and attentive to our needs. We ordered the bruschetta as an antipasta and then my fiance ordered their penne with vegetables in a white wine sauce and I had the homemade gnocchi in pesto!... More

We were in town visiting family, we wanted to try something in little Italy. It was restaurant week so they had some specials. We all enjoyed our meal but nothing was really outstanding. Spaghetti with clams, not great. Kids meals small portions and a drink for them cost 3.00 each. My brother and his wife had the special they both... More

Overall we had a decent experience here. The waitress was very friendly and very knowledgable about the specials and the main menu items. That being said, describing every ingredient in about 6 different specials was unnecessary and when 3 tables came in at once, this proved to be an issue causing us to wait a while to pay our bill....

Had a great experience. First rate service - the chef visited our table and the owner visited several times. The Spaghetti Neri was fantistic! And all for a reasonable price. Will come back!

Thank Patrick R
