3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Went with friends to eat for a birthday. Had a good wine selection, except they gave me a glass that was flat. I drank it anyway. The second glass was better. We ordered lasagna, spaghetti/meatballs, and the veal. The lasagna was totally burnt on the bottom so much that we had to send it back. When asked why they served... More

Nothing special. Food was good, not great. Space is small and tight, 4 in booth was cramped and aisle was narrow. Server was a bit arrogant and annoying when we asked questions about menu. Not likely to return.

I had not been to La Tavola in along time.night so got to take advantage of the pasta specials. The ones we tried were excellent. The service was prompt and courteous.

Lovely quaint restaurant in virginia highlands. Love the atmosphere. Great caesar salad to start with. but the highlight of our dinner was the bognese pasta sauce. So good could have just eaten a bowl of it. Some of the best I have had in Atlanta and Italy. The menu is great and there are other great dishes also. Good wine... More

Food varies with the season and is always great but on the expensive side. Service staff is great but the kitchen staff has way too much attitude. They need someway to keep them from even seeing the customers as they glare at people they perceive to not like.... Tipping for a booth or better table does no good as the... More

I had not been to La Tavola for several years now I remember why. I ordered the special and was disappointed. The pork chop I was told was very juicy, it was not. I thought the wine prices were well above average. The service was good but the quality of the food was only fair.

Great food, ambience and service. Our server was fabulous. Ask for Jill! Homemade pasta and excellent wine list. You can't go wrong dining at this fun, hip spot.

Get a real feel for an Atlanta Intown neighborhood. The clientele are local and the food is excellent. All of the pasta dishes are excellent and come in half (appetizer) portions if you would like to share an entree. Extensive wine list and full bar.

To say we eat out alot is an understatement, and this restaurant was definitely one of our favorites. We recently moved to Atlanta from Calgary, Canada and were on the look for a new Italian restaurant to fill the gap left in our stomaches from not having Mercato or Bocce down the road from us. The restaurant is in a... More

Wife and I have been coming here for years and every single time we go "God that was a great meal". They mix up the menu a lot which makes coming back worthwhile. Tremendous atmosphere, great date night spot. This is a top recommendation for Atlanta.
