The pasta and salads at Tavola are delicious! Equally as important as the taste, the ingredients are well sourced. The chef strives to use only local sustainable ingredients, which is very important to me since this is the way we eat at home. I would definitely eat here again the next time I'm in Vancouver.

The only reason that we had not been to tavola is that we were in mourning over the closing of tapastree, serious mourning. However, we were heading to nook, and decided to give tavola a try. Thank God we did, it was absolutely fantastic. Delicious food, sharing plates, laid back atmosphere. All topped off with great wine and a fun waiter. We will be back-a lot!

My girlfriend and I went to Tavola on a Friday evening for dinner. We are big fans of their sister restaurant around the corner, 'The Nook' and since it was packed we went decided to try Tavola. The restaurant was busy and we were seated at the bar. It was our first time at Tavola and the staff were informative in terms of stepping through the specials and the menu. The wine list offers a good selection of mostly Italian wines. We settled on the special salad, Campanella pasta with mushrooms, prosciutto and lemon and the brick chicken. We found all the offerings to be very tasty with distinct flavours for the various ingredients. The salad was fantastic, arugula and other greens highlighted with almonds and dates. The Campanella pasta was delicious, the flavours of the prosciutto and lemon were evident and so reminded us of pasta we had in Italy last summer! The brick chicken consisted of a breast and a leg seared under a 'brick' producing a lovely crisp skin and juicy moist meat in a garlic jus. Delicious! We also had dessert, sticky toffee pudding. Even though we were full from dinner we had no problem finishing off this yummy offering, the toffee flavour was just right, not too sweet. The staff were accomodating and although our initial impression of the barkeep was a little flat he warmed up over the evening. We highly recommend Tavola and look forward to going back!

Greeted by an enthusiastic and caring staff. The wine list is outstanding. The pork chop special and the brick chicken were excellent! Love the atmosphere, staff and food.

We have eaten here on three occasions, a couple of times just needing to get out for dinner and on another occasion when friends were in town. It's a big, open, airy room with lots of energy. Food is uncomplicated but not boring. Family style with large portions for plenty to share. A diverse wine list. Prices are reasonable and service is quite good.
