I'm traveling abroad and have been reviewing restaurants as I've visited. I just realized I have never reviewed my favorite hometown restaurant which I have been frequenting for over a decade. LaTavola is my idea of the perfect neighborhood Italian restaurant. The food is excellent -clean and not over complicated but beautiful and delicious. A must-try is the mushroom ragu!... More

One of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta. The food is always great. I also love the neighborhood that it is in.

Despite being the last table seated on a Friday night, we received excellent service and the food was tasty: meatball appetizer, tuna and Veal Chopp entrees, some bubbly water and a waiter who wrestled and played football...a Georgia Techie. A delightful dinner in a restaurant that makes an effort and delivers.

We have been to this restaurant several times in the last 2 years and have had great food and service, so we were unprepared for what happened during our visit yesterday (Sunday October 9, 2016). In retrospect, we should have put off ordering and left, but it was almost 2 pm and we didn't have reservations anywhere else. The restaurant... More

It is located in a neighbourhood that is primarily residential. Very inviting atmosphere with a really cool wrap-around patio out back. We enjoyed a really nice evening, good drinks and very tasty Italian dishes. Our server was extremely congenial and made our experience quite enjoyable. Good food, Good ambience - worth the trip.

Before travelling from the uk on our Georgia road trip we did plenty of research and we found la tavola online and decided to book a table. We were not disappointed. The meatballs with spaghetti were just to die for. The flavour of the meat and the delicate texture was like nothing i have tasted before, in a good way... More

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
