Called ahead one day in advance for Friday night reservations since the restaurant is pretty small and packed with patrons. Loved the Catalina Salad, lasagna and Peach Bellini Salmon on cedar plank. Ravioli was good but not much on quantity. Rockfest Salad wasn't too tasty with not much condiments and too much arugula making it too bitter. Prompt courteous service from John, our waiter, helped our rating of this restaurant since the noise level is too high to carry on a decent conversation.

Great place to eat Italian! Service good. Was VERY LOUD when we were there. This place needs more 'soft surfaces' to absorb noise, made dining experience not so pleasurable. Don't come here for a private conversation with your table mates. You can hear everyone in the restaurant - and they can hear you. Outside seating available but very small space. Will we be frequent customers? No - but will return once in awhile because food is good.

Tavola prepares superior Italian fare. Every we've had is excellent. The pasta is good, the gnocchi even better, the pizzas delightful. Wonderful bread and dipping sauce. A true gem in the rapidly growing Bentonville restaurant scene.

I am so happy to see more locally owned non "chain' restaurants coming to Benton County. This is one of the best! Owned by the same people who own Table Mesa (another great place on the Bentonville square), you'll get a great meal, great service and a great experience. Highly recommend!

Our serving staff was friendly and attentive. Fortunately there were outdoor seating options as it was very loud inside. I'm not sure how anyone carried on a conversation inside as everytime the door opened it was hard to have a conversation outside. However the food was very good - maybe just a bit pricy but not outlandish. I would eat here again if someone in my party wanted to but it wouldn't be my first choice in the Bentonville area
