The food at La Tavola Trattoria never disappoints! From the regular menu items to the limited time options, it is all good. The service and ambiance make it great for a night out with friends or a date night!

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.

As expected, it was a memorable evening. From the appetizer to the peach dessert it was delicious. It is also truly nice to be remembered and greeted by the wait staff. Always a treat.

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

Squid ink pasta with calamari was excellent, best I’ve ever had. Coupled with a bottle of soave made for a delicious memorable dinner.

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.

Food is absolutely delicious, wine selection is great and service is unmatched. It is a very small space though, so I would not recommend for any party larger than 4, you will be squished on it. Overall would recommend in a heartbeat.

We had a lovely birthday celebration at La Tavola. We have dined here many times over the years and always enjoy the cuisine and ambiance. We look forward to going back again. I recommend ordering the Calamari and also the olives from the Antipasti menu - both delicious.

This would be a 5-star review, but our server was an absolute pill. First let me say, the hostess was amazing! She had amazing customer service (along with everyone else at the restaurant - minus our server). The food was also amazing. I'm not sure if La Trovola hand-makes their pasta, but it was the best pasta I've ever had. It also was cooked perfectly al dente. We had the ricotta spread and a tomato dish (from the Tomato Fest menu) as appetizers which paired so well together. We also had the Zuppa and another special menu item from the Tomato Fest menu. Everything was delicious. I will say our server was very knowledgeable about the menu, cocktail and wine items however, from the moment she greeted the table she was very condescending. She never said anything out-right rude, but the entire exchange was very awkward. From the moment she walked up to the table, she spoke to us as if we were idiots. We joked that we should ask her what was floating in our water (that being ice), because of how patronizing she was being. I will definitely return to La Travola, I just hope I get a friendlier server next time.

This was the first time that we have been able to make it to Tomato Fest and we are regretting that we hit the end of it because the flavors were amazing, certainly worth multiple visits. Having grown up on a farm in Pennsylvania I know what a tomato is supposed to taste like. From the tomato tasting appetizer to dessert the staff honored the tomato with well thought out combinations and presentation. We look forward to next year's celebration!

La Tavola checks off all the boxes for a fantastic brunch spot! The menu selection and quality of food is outstanding and the staff is attentive and knowledgeable. Loved sitting on the covered back patio enjoying a small bit of Italy in Virginia Highland. It was also nice to reserve a table in advance which many restaurants in Atlanta don't offer for brunch. Can't wait to return to this little gem.

Delicious, and reliably so. No better brunch in Atlnata.

One request: please bring back the classic flourless chocolate cake with the olive oil drizzle.
