I made a reservation in advance and glad I did, this place was super packed Friday evening. We were sat at a small 2 person table right next to the bar, too close to the bar. That was disappointing. The food was good but when I order a few apps I asked the waitress if the items I choose was too much, she assured me not at all. Well that was not the case. Overall, definitely a place to check out but we wont go back until we check out other place in the area

In and around downtown ATL, Italian seems to mean only pizza and fast food. La Tavola is worth the drive out for homemade pastas, and a great selection of wines. The restaurant is very small, and staff are friendly and knowledgable.

Was looking for a nice Italian restaurant to take my dad to since he was visiting for a few days and I couldn’t have chosen a better one to go to. It’s small and quaint so it seemed a bit crowded but it wasn’t stuffy. Food was delicious and they were able to make a modification to my preferred taste which I really appreciate.

Great service as always! We tried two new items - roasted Brussels sprouts appetizer and the fish special which was striped bass. Both were very good, though we missed having our mushroom tagliolini that we normally have as an appetizer. They always do a nice job of combining different flavors, but I would recommend asking for a little lemon to squeeze on the fish as it really set off the flavor even more! Still our favorite place for a meal out in Atlanta!

The three tiny two person tables by the door are horrible. The waiter bumps into some constantly and if someone at a different table wants to leave you have to get up. Otherwise everything was amazing!

It felt like walking into a cute NYC restaurant in Little Italy. Very lively and immediate service. Decent food. Tried the squid ink spaghetti. It was ok, not as flavorful as I’d hoped. They bring out a delicious lemon olive cake with homemade whipped cream and candle (if you’re celebrating a birthday). Definitely coming back and trying something different!

La Tavola is like a trusty friend. Always warm and welcoming. Shares his/her food (I got a bowl of black eyed peas because I hadn't eaten any New Year's Day. ) We enjoyed ourselves immensely!

Food and service were great overall. We were seated on the covered porch which was nice, but cramped. Several fans were running, which we had to nearly shout to talk over. Wouldn’t recommend the patio for a date, but great if you want to drown out your kids for a meal. Spaghetti marinara was super salty, but other dishes were excellent (beet gnocchi, squid ink pasta, ricotta pine nut starter).

Incredible flavors, intimate restaurant, friendly service. Would say this restaurant is best for small groups (2-4 ppl). A few of the dishes were salter than I prefer but it did not overwhelm the flavor composition.

Loved everything about this restaurant! The location is in a fun part of midtown and it’s small enough to be intimate but lively enough to be fun. The food was delicious! I loved being able to order an appetizer portion of pasta. And our server was exceptionally knowledgeable about the wine selections. Dinner could not have been more perfect!

I was disappointed in our brunch experience here overall. The food was all just okay, quite bland actually and seemed prepared ahead of time. The bloody Mary’s were $11.50 which was appalling at brunch. Service was good.

We intended on going to Callies Biscuits but the line was so long we decided to stop in quick here. The server was a bit curt and took a minute or twenty to warm up to us, the food was amazing though. It took us a long time to get our bill. I would not suggest coming here if you are in a hurry.

Every aspect of our visit to La Tavola was outstanding. We had a late addition to our party that the hostess was happy to accommodate. Our bartender was very friendly despite being slammed (and made an outstanding Manhattan). Our server was happy to make recommendations as well as give us her thoughts on our wine selection. I wish I lived around the corner from La Tavola so I could be a regular!

The food is outstanding! I always come with my mom when she visits me in the city. We split a bottle of Chardonnay- so good and buttery and we also split a Caesar salad. We love the marinated olives as well. I have ordered the tagliolini twice and both times it was to die for, good portion size as well. I believe she got the bolognese and enjoyed it as well. I always take a tiramisu to go, although, I would like to try all of their desserts ;) Lots of vegetarian options and probably easy to make vegan as well.
I recommend making a reservation, as they are usually pretty busy and the space is smaller.

We were welcomed warmly by members of the staff which, of course, set the tone for the evening. Once again, my husband and I enjoyed a delicious dinner which had been carefully and creatively prepared, beautifully presented, and delightfully and efficiently served by Mary Catherine. Perfect way to spend a rainy Monday evening in Atlanta.
