We had a midweek dinner and the place was packed!!! Lovely vibe, and great service.
The menu - something for everyone, and the wine list - many good wines can be had by the glass.

I took some overseas visitors to A Tavola as it was recommended to me. The place was busy and there was a lovely vibe. We all had different meals and everyone was very satisfied, however, I do think the prices are expensive for the amount of food you get. What impressed us all was that one guest asked for a drink, some thing they make in the UK, that the barman did not know. While we ordered Dom Pedro's instead, he googled the drink and made it for her, for free. It made the evening.

We had our first visit to A Tavola last night - will definitely be the first of many more to come! Lovely ambience and always a good sign to see a full space with so many happy looking people.
We were a table of four. Starters included two salads (parmegiano and calamari) - both huge delicious portions - and a Vitello Tonnato (this disappeared before I got a fork in!!!
For mains we had one veal liver, one veal Limone, Melanzane and a wheat-free pesto pasta dish. Four clean plates!
As the portions are more than ample we sadly had no space for dessert, so will have to go back!
