La Tavola - Baltimore
SpecialLa tavola was so accommodating ! I asked them for a special favor and they delivered. It made the night special. Kudos !!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!This was our first time to La Tavola, and we will definitely come back. Food and service were excellent!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious. It was my secondDelicious. It was my second time there and each time I have had a wonderful meal.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food in Little ItalyMy wife and I went to La Tavola for our anniversary dinner. It was every bit as good as we hoped! Service was lively and attentive. The food was fantastic... you just don't want to leave anything on the plate and are sad when it's gone. I had an artichoke potato soup, and a veal porterhouse. Both were delicious. Vegetables were fresh and perfectly prepared. My wife had linguine with truffles, mushrooms and speck. She doesn't even like mushrooms and still ate all of it... Our server suggested the dish and was spot on. All of the pasta is made fresh in-house. Desert was a coffee and vanilla gelato creation with sponge cake sandwiched between the flavors. Prices were reasonable for the quality of food and service. We will certainly return.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat eveningDined here on business several years ago...finally came back with my wife for a weekend visit and wasn't disappointed.
All waitstaff were friendly and attentive. Generous portions for each course of the meal. Ambiance and overall dining experience was exactly what I remembered, and expected !6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time with friendsTook a group for a very nice dinner with the special 1/2 price wine on Wednesday made it even better.
Food was fantastic with great service too.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAs good as it gets in Little ItalyService outstanding (our waitress is a culinary school student and very knowledgeable about the menu), menu a bit different and very interesting, food quite good (although my veal was too chewy--my wife's, however, was very good). The dessert (tartuffo) was sensational. And, very important to me, the bread was perfecto.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA delicious meal here withA delicious meal here with my husband during Memorial Day Weekend in Baltimore. Food is authentic and everything is freshly made from scratch. A great find in the Little Italy section of Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Highly recommend. Worth the trip and we will return when visiting Baltimore again.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodHad a friend and his significant other up in Baltimore. Made reservations on line about as easy as possible. Food was excellent. would not hesitate to bring family here. Black spaghetti and rabbit were fabulous. Dress code is city casual. Jeans and a golf shirt is fine.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Lintz Family ReviewMy two sons and I had a wonderful dining experience. I am a single dad, and I try to expose my sons, ages 17 and 12, to many different dining experiences. The staff at La Tavola was exceptional! They were very attentive, and offered excellent suggestions to accompany our meals. They treated us with a level of dignity and respect that my sons and I, as Black men, don't often experience. Furthermore, the food was delicious! The chocolate martini is amazingly life-changing! :-)
Dana Lintz5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLeave Room for Dessert...Meal was solid and had great service. Fiancee made a special request and was granted without any issues. I had gnocchi, which was very good.
Dessert was the real gem of the meal. My fiancee had an amazing chocolate mousse (I stole a few bites) and I had the BEST cheese cake I've ever had! I've been to a lot of cheesecake hot spots, and this one was better than Junior's. Light but still rich and delicious. Do yourself a favor: ORDER THE CHEESE CAKE.
Overall a bit pricey for what we got, but nonetheless we'll return hungry and looking forward to our next meal at La Tavola.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Waitress EVER!!! Food superb!I had a lovely time at the La Tavolo Restaurant. I was dining along and felt very well taken care of and not overly harrassed. I could read, and enjoy and just take in the surroundings. There was one gentleman who knew I was an O's fan and every once in a while would share the score. And the waitress was indeed the best I have ever experienced. She helped me make my wine selections, dinner selection, my appetizer selection and my dessert selection and she did not steer me wrong. It was just totally a wonderful experience from start to finish and that dessert with the frozen ice cream and the side of cream with raspberry puree and chocolate swirled was "OH MY HEAVENLY FATHER" delicious. I could just go there to enjoy dessert. I will return5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in Little ItalyWe've eaten in many of the Little Italy restaurants, but we all agreed that La Tavola is the best! We are so glad we tried it and will definitely return.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Italian Gem!We found this place last year while in Baltimore on vacation and fell in love. We were back in town this weekend and couldn't wait to go again. The food was better than we remembered,as was the service. Can't wait until next year's trip!!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMA bit of Italy in Little ItalyMy wife and I had spotted this while staying in a nearby bed and breakfast. It took another trip to Baltimore for me to finally try it. It looked intimidating at night, and a bit formal for a weekend outing, but once inside, I found it bright and cheery, most of all, a great business lunch location. What a nice place! The food is excellent, the service likewise. This is a must do again restaurant for me. We had the luncheon menu, but the dinner menu was delightful. Calamari was well done and tender as it should be. Our sandwiches were also very tasty. I'm not a restaurant reviewer, but as a sales professional, I've dined in almost every worthwhile restaurant from here to Canada. This is very good restaurant.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAuthentic NY Italian in BaltimoreTook family for college graduation. Perfect all around. The owner made us feel right at home and that's not easy for native New Yorkers. Food, service, atmosphere is over the top. Def will go back and recommend to anyone.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAccomodating staff, great foodThe staff at La Tavola were outstanding--we had a large party made up of three reservations that one of the managers consolidated for us without complaint. The service was excellent in that it was timely but not pressured. The food, especially the fresh pasta, was top rate. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone interested in great Italian food in Baltimore.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMthey were ok in a way butthey were ok in a way but the fish my wife got had to many bones in it and the meal i got the shrimp they were like rubber or over cooked. i would not go back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food, Great ServiceThe service was stellar and the ambiance was very pleasant. There were 5 of us there for Mother's Day (although it was not very crowded), ages ranging from 16 to 88, and we all walked away satisfied. Overall, the food was good; some appetizers/meals were exceptional (e.g., eggplant and veal), but some were just okay (e.g., lobster bisque, pasta with salmon special). Recommend for a special occasion.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our first time thereIt was our first time there and we loved it. Will definitely be coming back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgood food and staffthe chicken dishes are the best. The wait staff are at your call for anything you need. They were in no rush to get you in or out like some other places. Only thing I missed were the white or some kind of table clothes I think it would have made the atmostphere a little more romantic.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful serviceI took my mother here for Mother's Day and the service was superb! I love it and will dine again.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe server was very knowledgeableThe server was very knowledgeable and had personality to boot!

The Tiramisu is to DIE for!!!!Make sure to leave room for it.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great meal with attentiveHad a great meal with attentive service. My main course was the Puttanesca and it was superb- piping hot and absolutely delicious. Such a treat. They coordinated the dishes perfectly. For me the only let down was the chocolate chip cheesecake. The waitress told us it was unique and it was- so I was warned. My husband and sons loved their desserts.We ate at Aldo's the next night and I have to say I prefered La Tavola. The food was as good if not better, it was cheaper and the service was much more attentive.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellent food andAlways excellent food and service.

I highly recommend this little gem.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot in Little ItalyLittle Italy is known for great food and La Tavola is our favorite. On our last visit, the kitchen sold out of one of the specials (Rockfish)as we were ordering--so the chef whipped up something similar with a red snapper that was absolutely wonderful! The sauces are always interesting twists on the traditional. You can find healthy food and decadent food--and it's all delectable. The wine list is very adequate--especially for a restaurant of this size. We have never been disappointed at La Tavola.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding and ClassyMy wife eat at La Tavola regularly. We always start with a cocktail. I enjoy the Espresso Martini and my wife enjoys the Blood Orange Margarita. She loves the home made Lasagna and I love the Linguini con Taleggio e Tartufo. The crispy Speck with the creamy sauce and reduced balsamic glaze is a perfect. The Mozzarella Fresca with freshly cracked pepper is perfect for two to share. Lastly, enjoy the wonderful Cheesecake with a Machiato or even a glass of one of the many Ports is great.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAll of the food is amazing,All of the food is amazing, but everyone should try the lasagna. It is out of this world, insanely delicious! I know...lasagna? What's special about lasagna? LaTavola's! Even if you have your heart set on something else, get one for the table to share. You won't regret it! The staff is friendly and professional and Mike makes every guest feel as if they're walking into a private home to have dinner. He is extremely personable and accommodating! Best place in Little Italy for authentic Italian!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe came here for dinner onWe came here for dinner on a Thursday night. It was good that we had the reservation, as the dining room had filled up. We were seated in the back and it didn't seem crowded. The food was delicious. There were a bunch of good options for the vegetarians in the group. The wine list was good; there were much fewer wines available by the glass than by the bottle. The service was attentive. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Pleasan atmosphere.Great food. Pleasan atmosphere. Very good service.

I love their food, their service and their ambiance.2/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe lamb shank Osso BuccoThe lamb shank Osso Bucco was well prepared and tasty. The proportions were very large. The cuttlefish appetizer was grilled and had a little too strong of a smoked flavor. Otherwise it was tasty. The recommended wine selection went well with the meal. I would try this restaurant again.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
