We made reservations for an early dinner Saturday; we had a friend in town who was on his way back to Jordan - we wanted to eat early so we could get him to the airport on time.
UNFORTUNATELY, after we were seated we were told we could not be served because a toilet had overflowed and that they were shutting down. It was cold, dark, and raining and it took me 10 minutes just to find a parking spot. Suddenly we needed a place to eat at 6pm on a Saturday - not an easy task in Virginia Highland.
I'm not sure what they could have done to anticipate such an occurrence, but it really changed a calm dinner into a frantic search for something comparable that could seat us immediately.
Maybe we'll try again another time.
Loved our waiter Richard! He was great and provided great insight on the menu and pointed us in the right direction towards food options.
Absolutely loved the ambiance, the service, and the food! They were able to accommodate the 1 vegan in the group with no problem, which was greatly appreciated. The food was plentiful and delicious. Will be back for sure!
The host at the door was incredibly rude!! Not once but twice....and when serving champagne at $20 a glass, of its not fizzy it’s no good....why must this happen every time I go there? It’s like they are testing to see if they can pass off old champagne.
Love, love, love this place. Food is always excellent, and restaurant is very cozy. Make a reservation!
Fast, friendly service and excellent food. We’ve never had a less than perfect experience here!
Everything is absolutely delicious!! We have never been disappointed.
My wife and I stop in every year and once again were thrilled with dinner
From the calamari appetizer to the braised beef and pink spotted trout entrees and the perfect ending tiramisu the food was excellent. Mary Kay was an outstanding and very knowledgeable professional. My wife and I would highly recommend La Tavola.
A lovely evening at one of our favorites.
I went for a work dinner with my boss and the food was delicious. Our server was attentive and very helpful. The restaurant is a little crowded, but the atmosphere is homey and authentic. Reservations are recommended as we have tried a few times and there was no seating available.
La Tav is truly a fine restaurant. Great menu selections and one thing to note about the ability of a restaurant to deliver a good dining experience is it's employees. There has been very little turnover with the wait staff over a period of several years. I think the same can be said for the kitchen staff as well.
Food and service were great! We will definitely go again!
This used to be one of my favorite restaurant to go to... the Nostalgic atmosphere with both music and food when we lived in the Atlanta area was Best. Living in Huntsville now, I always recommended friends to La Tavola Trattoria, however after 6 years of not living in this area and going back, I 'm unlikely to recommend going forward... The service was good, the food was just okay. Pot Roast was the closest I could come to a Filet Mignon, and for the price I could make this at home with other sides for our company and more.... NO Filet Mignon, Appetizers was okay, and the music was too loud with today's music, our company commented the music as "too spastic". Sorry to say we will not be recommending your new updated version nor will we be revisiting any time soon.
There was no place like like it in Atl... nostalgia is dead...
Brunch pork milanese was divine!
I had two long hairs in my pasta! Gross!!
Always great food and service.
Third visit! Food is always very good - super fresh, made to order!
However, I thought the service was a bit slow this time. When we decided to order 3 entrees (don’t judge, my husband and I starved ourselves all day to enjoy a dinner date that night, haha!), the waitress said that we might not want to because it wouldn’t fit on our table and suggested we have one to-go. I told her we would figure it out and she seemed very awkward about it. She then suggested that we have the entrees come out at different times to make space on the table. I insisted we would be fine. When the entrees came out, they fit just fine on the table... I’m still confused, haha!
Also, she did not fill my water. I had to ask twice and she didn’t add more ice so it was warm for both refills.
The manager stopped by to ask how our food was and the rest of the staff was very personable and friendly. I will go back but hope to have a different service experience.
Ceasar salad was okay but standard. The pasta with mushrooms and truffle oil held up well. The veal saltimbocca had fingerling potatoes underneath it. Unimaginative. Nothing fresh and green. My cocktail needed to be upped and of course, the place was quite noisy. So we sat at the bar so we could converse. They were kind and amenable but I would not return.
LaTavola continues it's tradition of outstanding service, food, and ambiance. We love being recognized when we dine there. Food always surprises how good it really is. We loved that we could hear the background music this visit, it adds so much to the ambiance. Can't wait to return.
Great atmosphere. Restaurant very warm and inviting. Food was excellent.
This could have been a poor experience but thanks to management and service it turned out well. The restaurant was crowded and table seatings were behind schedule. In the meantime we were at the bar and took a poor recommendation for choice of a bottle of wine and ordered a mediocre pumpkin pasta appetizer. Finally seated, we again relied on the waiter’s recommendation- this time success! Truffle-infused tagliatelle. At the dinner’s end, we were visited by the manager who had learned of our earlier disappointment. She insisted on picking up the check.
This isn’t a story of free dinners. Instead, it’s about an establishment that takes very seriously its function. We will surely return and encourage others todo so.
Great food. Excellent wine the service was outstanding we were seated right at our reservation at 7:45 for a party at 6. Overall an excellent experience.
Great dinner at La Tavola on Friday night. Service was attentive, but not over-bearing. We shared a bottle of Chianti that was delicious and very reasonably priced. We started with the salumi board and cheese, which was a very generous portion of prosciutto, speck, salami, and bresaola. For dinner, I had the squid ink pasta with calamari, and my husband had the tagliatelle with bolognese. Both dishes were delicious, but I was partial to the tagliatelle! My only compliant was our table - the restaurant is small, and we were seated at a table in the middle of the restaurant, and my chair was backed up against the bar. Not a huge problem -
just felt a little cozy. Great date night for the value, and we'll definitely be back!
Authentic Italian cuisine in a cozy dimly lit atmosphere made for an enjoyable evening. Service was excellent and wait staff was knowledgable about the cuisine and wine list. The patio seating was cozy and warm despite the damp, cold evening. An excellent, long tenured restaurant with a good reputation. I would highly recommend.
Exceptional service and food. Only thing we did not like was the music choice. The music Definitely did not go with the old world Italian ambiance. I
Our favorite Italian restaurant and a culinary treat. The squid ink pasta is to die for!!!
Consistant great food with wonderful staff---- try the mushroom ragu and the bolognese
Terrific for family or friend gathering and date night. Love it!
My husband and I eat at this restaurant at least three times a year and it never disappoints. This time I ventured away from my regular order (the fabulous tagliolini with mushroom ragu) and ordered something different - the duck. Bad idea. Having recently enjoyed well prepared duck at a restaurant in another city, I was looking forward to another great meal here. It was not as tender as it could have been and the accompanying lentil dish was pretty tasteless - a big disappointment. My kale salad and my husband’s bolognese were wonderful. The waiter was sympathetic and comped us a nice dessert. We will of course return, but I will stick with their pasta dishes and the menu item that is always fabulous - tagliolini.
Best brunch I’ve ever had in Atlanta!!!
Food was Excellent!! Creative!! Delicious!!!
Service was excellent!!!
This is my favorite go to restaurant in Atlanta. It’s always great food and service is always excellent.
Food was great and the service by Harris was outstanding
La Tavola has been one of my favorite Virginia-Highland restaurants for many years. The atmosphere is cozy and elegant, and each seasonal menu is outstanding. The front staff is welcoming and the servers are well-versed on the menu and wine selection. There is valet parking in the rear.
Great food, awesome service, ask for Erica!
We enjoyed another outstanding meal at La Tavola. The rabbit pasta dish and the veal saltimbocca were very tasty and satisfying. We shared a bottle of wine that was reasonably priced and paired well with the entrees. Service from Mary-Cathryn was friendly and professional. There’s always a lot to like at La Tavola so give it a try.
The staff was wonderful! We were there celebrating new jobs and they definitely made us feel special! Can’t wait to go back :)
Consistently excellent food and service.
