Owners Bobby, Carol and Randy Newman created a relaxing place for guests to dine on a combination of southern comfort foods and traditional cuisine prepared by Executive Chef Kevin Bruntz. On the menu at La Tabella you will find everything from house-made pastas and fresh, local market seafood dishes to grilled steaks.
Try traditional Italian pasta dishes like fettuccine Alfredo, baked manicotti, eggplant parmesan, and angel hair with chicken. There are plenty of meat dishes, including French-cut bone-in pork chops or CAB rib-eye. Order any grilled entrée “A La Tabella” and have it topped with a rich cream sauce made of Cremini mushrooms, gorgonzola, hot sausage and shallots. Seafood options include the fresh catch of the day, the popular sesame-crusted tuna and the classic seafood Pomodoro linguine. La Tabella also has specials throughout the week.

Always a pleasure to eat at La Tabella! Always seated on time exactly where requested. More importantly, the servers are very knowledgeable & pleasant regarding menu/ingredients.
Specials are always that-so special! Daily menu, in itself, is always special also . Great place & great people. Try it! You won't be disappointed .
I love shrimp, and this was one of the best dishes I have ever had. I WILL be going back and getting this again!!
La Tabella is a great family Italian restaurant. The menu has something for everyone, and the food is fresh and creative.
If you want great food and service on your special night out this is the spot.
Another couple and we have been there a few times before. Always been pleased with food and service. This trip the food was still great, but our reservation was basically ignored. We arrived a couple of minutes before or appointed time. We were told that the empty table that we could see were being held for a group of 8 arriving later. Subsequently, a party of two came in and was seated at a table for 4 ahead of us and another party that was waiting behind us. The explanation was that it was their favorite table (obviously regulars).
The bar (5-6 stools) was full so after waiting for some time at the end of the bar to buy a glass of wine, we were then left to stand with other waiting patrons in the bustle of waiters trying to serve seated guests. The matter was made more uncomfortable by the hostess's and the manager's (could have been owner) sour attitude with never an apology.
We'll go back - anyone can have a bad night, but it did alter our opinion of the staff and management. By the way, the server was excellent when we were finally seated.
Just as good as downtown places and a little less expensive and easy parking.
Saturday evening was very busy but our reservations were honored promptly. My wife's Spaghetti and meatballs were excellent and my chicken Parmesan was also very good, however the pasta was not hot enough. Portions are more than ample and we enjoyed the leftovers the next day. Service was excellent and yes we'll go back, and soon!
They do not keep reservations within a resonable time limit. I had to wait outside for my
table in the cold because of the crowd. The place was unbelevely noisy.
