The team here are fantastic! We had just been let down by another top Italian restaurant who lost our booking for 6 mid week. We called a couple of places and A Tavola said they were full but would squeeze us in. The food was excellent, the service was impeccable and the Negronis are superb. I can highly recommend both the ragu pastas - wagyu or goat, the pork cutlet, the burrata, all delicious! A Tavola saved what could have been a birthday nightmare.

A Tavola opened some months ago in the new "restaurant precinct" in Hall Street, Bondi Beach. It is slick, modern Italian and they do it very well. Although a small venue they do a great job of maximising their accommodation with a large communal table in addition to several smaller tables.
The food is nothing short of perfect with house-made pasta and an ever-changing specials board in addition to their seasonal menu.
They have a small but delicious wine list and full bar.
Service is very Italian and spot on.
Highly recommended.

Food is good. Service is friendly and efficient, but it's too expensive for a place in which half the customers are in an outside hallway (without gas in the heater) or at shallow benches around the edge of the room. Wine is particularly overpriced.

We had been to A Tavola at Kings Cross several times and, whilst the food was OK, we were extremely disappointed in the high handed methods of the waiters. We vowed not to return. Then friends insisted we go to A Tavola in Bondi - what a difference. I think the food was better - in fact delicious; the wine was very good and the service was superb. The waiting staff were knowledgeable, friendly, attentive without being obvious and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. Viva la difference. It has become my favourite casual eating place in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. It's a little noisy but not too much and the atmosphere is straight out of a trattoria in Italy.

You can watch them make the pasta on the counter next to you. Really solid Italian food. Great place for a weekend lunch.
