This is a great small restaurant in crowded downtown Vancouver.
The servers were exceptionally friendly, patience and experienced. We had the pear and pesto bruschetta and it was outstanding for our entire I picked the pasta special of the day and my wife had the pan seared halibut. Both were spectacular but we both agent we'd the homemade pasta was a little better than the halibut-which was great. We had plenty of food but the table beside us had a really good looking desert so we finished up with THE STICKY TOFFEE desert, espresso and coffee. The desert was outstanding and so was the service. We highly recommend Tavola! Great food, great service and a comfortable, casual setting.

What a great find. Quiet despite the busy neighborhood, fantastic menu with fresh specials, wonderful staff. The burrata with roasted figs was amazing. The pasta special at the next table looked so good, I had to have it, and it was delicious. The brick chicken was superb. They DO take reservations, so call ahead.

If you are looking for good italian but not fancy give this restaurant a try. I thought the menu was great and our waiter was very knowledgable about the menu and the wine. The burratta cheese and prosciutto appy was yummy. The gnocchi was the best I have EVER had. The only sour moment of the evening was when the hostess came to our table to settle the bill. We had a reservation from 6-8pm as they turn their tables. We had our credit cards out and in our hands when she came to our table to collect payment.... However when she came she said "your reservation is only until 8pm and I have people waiting for your table... Like it was our fault we were still there???" Would have been much better to come to the table and inquire on our evening and notice that we were waiting on her or our waiter not the other way around. That was not professional. But that said it did not spoil our evening and I would give them another try to improve on that part of their service.

After you take your bicycle ride along the sea wall of beautiful Stanley Park (very highly recommended), or if you're just looking for wonderful Italian food, don't miss out on Tavola Restaurant very near to Stanley Park. The food is truly amazing!
