I was really impressed by our server, especially when she knew my wife's name so that we didn't have to get out our FG card for her birthday discount. Her points were automatically added to her account, and she took the birthday discount off without us asking. We come by regularly, and it's really nice to have that kind of personal touch. I'm still not 100% sure how she knew my wife's name, but it was a very nice touch. Looking forward to coming back again.

This has been a long time favorite for the atmosphere and consistently good service. However this last visit did not live up to past experiences with the food. The calamari appetizer was forgettable and my mixed seafood entree of clams, shrimp, etc was over cooked and disappointing.
On a bright note the Caesar salad was nice and the gelato tasty.

Loved the food! Loved our waiter! We were a little bit late for our reservation and they nicely accommodated us. The one negative was that we were initially seated in a tight space while there was an open booth. We asked for the open booth but were told it was saved for another reservation. Our waiter "fought" for us and got us seated in the booth. Yay! Overall, excellent experience!

I ate at the bar and this particular experience was not LaTavola’s best. To begin, the food and ambiance was great, as usual. The service however was lacking, for instance I did not receive the bread until after my meal had been served. I had to ask for silverware and when it came, there was no napkin so I had to go grab one. I was not offered parmesan or pepper and had to ask for it when the bartender was serving other customers. A lot of missteps overall that were not up to standards.

Excellent, authentic Italian fare. Couldn't decide upon which pasta to have for dinner and the waitress recommended an appetizer portion of each. Perfect suggestion. It is a small space, but I enjoyed the ambiance and watching the staff perform their duties. Will return and will recommend to friends.

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!

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!

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).
