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.

Small restaurant floorplan so I'd definitely recommend reservations and parties of 4 or less... but I've never had a bad experience at La Tavola and it reminds me of some of the great meals my wife and I had in Italy.

Found this nice Italian restaurant in midtown. The food was good. Service very good. The menu was small but offered a good mix of items. Definitely a highlight of the trip. Its about 10min from downtown but worth the drive. Uber is only $6. Prices are in line with the food and service. $30+ per person.

Dined with my family recently on the back patio. Wonderful experience and food. Of the four meals, only the whole fish was slightly overcooked. But that is a difficult fish to prepare. The cannolli we had for dessert the best we have had outside of Italy. Valet parking in the back made visiting an ease.

Highly recommend, would definitely eat there again. Great find in a great neighborhood. We ate inside, but was told that their outdoor patio is very comfortable too. The waitress was very friendly and efficient – her name was Jill. The food presentation, taste and smell was very fine.

We had dinner here with friends. It's a great spot in Virginia Highlands. Had the whole fish - branzini (a type of sea bass). It was delicious. Waiter was very helpful with wine suggestions suggestions.

Ate here recently for the fist time. Food was amazing. The veggie pasta was great, veal meatballs were great. Both fish dishes were prepared perfectly. The chocolate desserts were fantastic. Wait staff was attentive and executive chef spent some time with us to ensure best if food/service. We will be back.

We had dinner here recently while visiting our daughter in Atlanta. It is in a very cute little neighborhood and is a real gem. The cocktails were very interesting and the food was really delicious. Very nice decor. We highly recommend this restaurant for a nice Italian dinner. Will definitely return!!
