We stumbled onto Tavola for my wife's birthday dinner. We checked the rating of another restaurant we had planned on going to and found out that it was rated very poorly. Our iPhone then went to work and we searched for other restaurants within walking distance. Tavola came up as highly recommended on TripAdvisor, so we walked in and had a seat at the bar. At first glance the menu was small and had a lot of things that my wife doesn't eat. But just as we were ready to leave the server came up to us and asked if she could help us. We told her the schpiel... no pork, no beef and no anchovies... difficult in an Italian restaurant. She said not to worry. She recommended sharing the Antipasta platter (a huge portion of roasted and marinated vegetables) from the large "specials" board, half of a lemon roasted chicken, the 4 mushroom pasta (leaving out the ham).... wow it was very very excellent. That with two glasses of wine was great... then we had a very delicious apple dish with the very best decaf Americano I've ever had to top it off.

We have talked about this restaurant to a bunch of our friends in the last few days and we for sure will be back for more special dinners. The price was right in the ball park, great service and very authentic Italian cuisine.

My only tiny complaint was no hot crusty bread... but I guess they are trying to sell the Crostinnis from the menu. We didn't need the bread as the meal was very satisfying in every way.

Thank you Tavola!!!!

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!
