La Tavola is the Italian food of the people for the people. Their staff has never let me down from the brain to the taste buds. Inexperienced Italian diner's rejoice as their staff makes you feel empowered and welcomed. Even if you don't know what wine to pair with your food.

We arrived and received a hardy greeting as we entered the restaurant. After being seated the waiter explained the menu and specials and a great night of drinks and food was started. Drinks, Starters and Entrée were spaced out perfectly to have a nice conversation over diner with nice jazz in the background.
A truly relaxing Italian meal was served. I will return with more of my friends that would appreciate both the service and the food.

Food and service were on point. Unfortunately, we were seated at one of the tables sandwiched between the bar and the booths. I was just too cramped and made it hard to relax with people squeezing in and out of their seats at the bar and severs moving plates of food over my head.

Delicious brunch. The blackberry muffins were outstanding but a bit pricey for the amount served. Otherwise, all was excellent. Donna provided outstanding customer service. She is so customer focused and has such a bubbly personality.

Wonderful wine selection and fresh inventive pasta dishes with the freshest ingredients. Can't decide between pasta dishes, no problem, have a couple of the smaller portion rather than entree size.

What an improvement from the last time we dined at La Tavola!!! The service was outstanding. Donna was friendly, knowledgeable, and provided excellent service. The food was wonderful. We were glad to see the new manager had made changes which as reflected in the attitudes of the servers and staff as well as overall service. We won't wait a year to dine there again.

We have had La Tavola on our list for three years and finally made a date to celebrate a neighbor's birthday and new job. It is a lovely restaurant with kind and attentive staff, and the food is delicious. Well priced for the quality of service and attention to detail, though not inexpensive. We will definitely go again for another special occasion!

Can’t say much because we sat there for 20 minutes and were never acknowledged. No one even brought us water, while very table around was serviced. We felt like the invisible couple. We both worked in the restaurant business for years and such a lack of service is inexcusable. Will not return.

I came to this restaurant for the past 4 year and any time the food is upstanding no matter what you order everything is excellent.
The place is small but cozy open kitchen were you can see and hear everything that happens and the filing is good .
Waiters try to give you the best service that they can give maybe there are not enough waiter to give a better service but still the service is no bad .
I recommend this restaurant for any occasion you can not going to disappoint for eat there

nothing was specifically bad at all, but nothing was great either. I think there was calamari in the calamari appetizer but it was hard to find. The lobster risotto was overshadowed by the tomato in the dish.

Honestly, this was one of my first experiences going to an Italian restaurant and it was pretty amazing. Our server was very knowledgeable and helped us pick some great choices. The veal meatballs and risotto were spectacular, but the scallops were literally the best I've ever tasted and coming from a seafood upbringing that's saying alot.

Kris Zimmerman at the bar is a joy to dine with. It has become my weekly ritual. The ambiance and lighting are wonderful. The music however is a bit distracting. Does not seem to flow or compliment the amazing atmosphere. Quickly shifts from jazz to other genres without any cohesiveness. As someone who believes that all the senses are an integral part of the dining experience the sound should be just as well curated as tastes and visuals. A+ overall. Thank you La Tavola family.
