    The food was very good. We loved the antipasto plate! Spaghetti was good, big portion. I had the very salad. Mixed seafood pasta was excellent and not spicy. Would repeat! The service tapered off a bit during the meal.

    The food was good but that is it. It was sparse and small sides of pasta cost $10 each which is ridiculous. I got a bourbon neat with ice on the side and having bought a bottle of this brand before I knew how much a whole bottle of it cost. But I was totally shocked when I was charged $18.50 for little more than a film in my glass and then an extra $2.50 for the small glass of ice !! The service was absolutely exceptional, the lone bright spot that saved what was a very disappointing meal for the amount of money we paid for it. Marginal food at best and small portions with little or no sides is why we give this an overall poor value.

    We were excited to get a reservation at La Tavola after reading the reviews - most were very good, a few that were disappointing. Service was fast, great, and the people pleasant. My bruschetta consisted of 4 pieces of bread that had diced tomatoes on it that were mushy - no seasoning at all. I asked for balsamic vinegar to add some flavor to it, and that helped. My wife enjoyed her soup as well as her seafood dish, however, I had the veal in a white wine sauce and that was not very good. The veal was tender, however, I believe it was the capers in the sauce that made the sauce VERY strong, like vinegar. Not enjoyable at all. I don't know if their normal chef was off that night, but it was not good at all. Dessert was a 3 cheese cheesecake which was very good. I cannot recommend going here as it was not a good meal, especially after spending around $140 for the two of us.

    La Tavola has been one of our favorite Italian restaurants for several years. We always considered it somewhat of a secret place, as it didn’t get the visibility of some of the more well-known restaurants in Little Italy.  The menu was many of the Classics, but with their Venetian influence, there was a lot of great seafood dishes, such as fish baked in a puff pastry. Everything I had there was excellent when I came to the rest of this time it was different. There was some music playing, which I can describe Best as something Italian contemporary. I got the beef carpaccio as a starter, which is one of my favorites. The beef was fine, but there was very little of the great shredded Parmesan, few capers, and instead of a huge pile of arugula. I also had the mushroom ravioli as my main, it was good, but not special. I overheard conversations and I soon realized that the restaurant had been sold six months earlier. It was not a bad experience, but I have to be honest and say it wasn’t the same. I hope the new owners figure it out.

    Food and service could have been better. Service coordination was off. Starter arrived before drinks. Then before we are finished with drinks the wine we ordered with our entrees arrived. Started bruschetta was good though toast was burnt on one side. The entrees, lasagna was good but again it was half eaten before the waiter arrived with cheese. The saltimbucco veal was over cooked and the mix vegetables were two small slices of zucchini. Over all not the best of little Italy.

    The food was surprisingly ordinary. For this price, I definitely expected better. I got the squid ink pasta with “fresh” crab. The crab was most definite canned, and the dish as a whole was flavorless.

Unbelievable flavors. If you get dessert, try the torta di formaggio and the tartufo al cioccolato. You will be in heaven.

    This was an outing for my son’s birthday. Very slow service, especially on delivery of drinks; twice. The getting the check was a next level ordeal. The server placed the wrong card on the tray; voided out all transactions (like 8 trays’ worth); and all that had been wrong was the card on the receipt, not what was charged. This was a 25 minute process to resolve; and nothing was offered for our trouble. It was by far the worst $200 dinner I have ever paid for.

    Food was amazing- reasonably sized portions with incredible flavor. I had Spaghetti Neri al Granchio- squid ink pasta with limp crab meat, spinach, and tomato in white wine & lobster broth. Delicious! Other dishes ordered by our group included Lasagna Bolognese, Ravioli with a traditional red sauce, and Saltimbocca alla Romana. All delicious. One of our party has a wheat allergy. Our server was knowledgeable about her options and shared that the gluten free pasta (strofie) is made in-house. Her dinner, Taleggio, was amazing with the strofie pasta having a chewy texture quite similar to traditional pasta- virtually unheard of for gluten free pastas! Desserts were great as well with the lighter take on a traditional cannoli being a big hit as well as the homemade strawberry sorbetto. And, of course, tiramisu - delicious! Service was a bit slow and our salads never came out but, it did appear our sever was attending to the entire second floor. He was apologetic and seemed genuinely sorry about the mix up. Would absolutely go back!

    We've been to a couple of restaurants in Little Italy, but this was our first time here and we were all disappointed. It was like eating in a cafeteria - hard floors, bright lights. The food was good as well as the service, but it just doesn't compare.

    Wonderful meal with our daughter. Extensive menu from which we had a delicious veal all a Norcina and daughter had a cioppino like dish to which she added linguine. Delightful apps and good salads. Bread was not notable. Desserts were all great. Server was friendly and attentive. Next time I vow to have the homemade pasta! We’ll be back!
