“Wonderful Food & Atmosphere ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

Two must haves:
Fig and prosciutto pizza
Artichoke Pizza (add chicken meatball)

I love to eat here when I am in town. Whether it is the cocktails, pizza, salads, or meatballs, you cannot go wrong with any. There is a great buzz on Vine St, especially on weekends. This makes the experience even better. Since they don't take reservations, be sure to strategize your dining to be ready for a wait, or arrive earlier/later for dinner. The pizzas are a perfect size to split between two people. The salads are also a great addition to the meal.

“Excellent and unique pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

Smallish, and we were there at 4 PM when they opened, so that wasn't a problem. Atmosphere doesn't count as much as food for us, but it was pleasant enough. The pizza? Excellent, and many varieties.

“Cool place but..... ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

Went to A Tavola with family and young daughter on a Sunday evening. First off, it is a popular place and from other accounts usually has a long wait. (We waited about 45 min) Especially when u only have two tables that accommodates 6. It's a smaller place and I guess due to the small space, large crowd and building acoustics it is very loud in the restaurant. You have to yell to the wait staff and to the people next to you. In regards to food, we started with appetizers. The bacon wrapped dates were excellent as we're the Arancini (fried cheese balls). I expected that the style of pizza would be thin and crispy although it was more like pita bread which left our parsley butter base, pepperoni and sausage pizza soggy. I first though it was our choice in base (not a huge fan of tomato sauce) but from the looks of the other pizza that had regular sauce it was fairly soggy too. Also the crust was mostly blackened but not crispy as stated before . It is a wood fire pizza place but was not expecting such a burnt taste. No one was unhappy with the place overall, just not 5 stars to me. Cool place but too many detractors to be in the top 20.

“About to become one of my favorite places”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

I had a pizza that was as near to an Italian pizza as you can expect!
Service was friendly and atmosphere was just super nice.
I loved the pizza bar seat where you could actually see guys making pizzas.
When I'll move out of Italy it's gonna become one of my favorite spots.
