Italian
La Tavola translates to “the table” in Italian—a place where friends and families can gather anytime. Simple yet elegant dishes, classic sauces and creative entrees emphasize the true taste of Italy’s premier ingredients, complemented by a carefully chosen and extensive wine selection.

La Tavola’s exposed brick, dark wood floors and rustic colors give the restaurant its authentic trattoria feel, while progressive touches hint at its innovative cuisine. And with indoor seating for 60 guests, a small bar and an outdoor covered patio for 40 or more, the space is just right for celebrating any occasion together.

As Executive Chef at Atlanta's best Italian trattoria, Chef Kevin Grossman is inspired by the culture and heart of the south and enjoys intertwining the northern flavors of his past with southern cuisine to create what he refers to as “rustic comfort food.”

With nearly 15 years of hospitality experience under his belt, La Tavola has always been one of his favorites!

    La Tavola is consistently excellent. Their Monday night "Molto Monday" specials are a huge hit and excellent value for money (although the portions could be ever so slightly larger). The staff are friendly and attentive and the restaurant is lovely and inviting. Will definitely be back again and again and again....

    Tonight was my first time at La Tavola and it exceeded expectations! The food was delicious — excellent Caesar salad and mushroom tagliolini. Also seriously the best bolognese I’ve ever had. Really good service too, shoutout to Michael for taking great care of us and giving great recommendations! Will definitely be coming back

    Let's start with the positives. Our server was outstanding. Greeted us, took our drink order, and reviewed her favorites from the menu when she learned that this was our first time dining here. The menu was somewhat limited but had enough choices that everyone could find something they would enjoy. The homemade pasta was cooked just right, and the sauces were tasty. I don't want to forget the bread and seasoned olive oil, which we could not stop eating. The tiramisu was also very good and a great way to end our meal. Now for the reason behind my marginal review. My wife and I made the reservation on the open table three or four days in advance and requested a booth. Upon arriving, the hostess greeted us, noted our request, and promptly informed us that they needed to reserve the booths for parties of 3 or more. All she had was a two-top located in the middle of the restaurant, wedged between the bar stools and the one walkway that separated the tables from the booths. Although we understand the need for larger tables, having requested so long in advance and not hearing otherwise from the restaurant, we were not expecting this to be an issue. We asked how long of a wait for a booth, as it was already 7 PM; we chose to take the two-top. Due to the small space, it was very loud, and you could share in everyone else's conversations whether you wanted to or not (or if they wanted you to or not). The space was so small that when the individuals at the bar stools got up to leave, they hit my wife's chair with no apology. Worst of all, we noticed three booths that were empty for quite some time and a party of two that was seated in a booth right behind us. In summary, great service and good food, but not a place to go for a quiet dinner with your wife or significant other.

    We have supported La Tavola Trattoria for over twenty years. I made a reservation for 2 over a month in advance and made a special request for a booth. When we showed up we were told the booths were only for 3 or more people. The door greeter tried to seat us at a cocktail table pushed up to another cocktail table in the front window. She kept saying the booths were only for parties of three or more. Kinda made me feel unwelcome and maybe Fifth Restaurant Group needed more revenue. (We spent $130 before tip,) We walked to the back outdoor space. There were three tables available plus a business group of 36. We were seated at one of these tables. Wait staff Hank and Dakota took great care of us- professional and friendly. And of course the kitchen came through with a great meal which came out hot. Also a disappointing first at La Tavola no manager stopped by our table to say hello and check on the food and service. If this were my first time at the restaurant I would not return, if actually staying. NOT my VaHi style.

    Had a wonderful meal here. Food was absolutely delicious and the perfect portion sizes. The Burrata appetizer was perfectly balanced and we almost fought over who got the last bite! We had the arctic char and veal mains and then flavors were just awesome. Our waitress was so kind and helpful, we were from out of town and she gave us great recommendations. Overall ambiance was snappy casual vibes and very friendly. Very cute overall neighborhood too. Would definitely recommend!

    The food was excellent- had mushroom pasta that was unusual, intensely good if you like mushrooms. My partner had spaghetti and we both agreed the sauce was thinner than we prefer. The place is small and noisy, and we sat at a table that backed up to the open kitchen where dishes are served and that was a little inconvenient. Also the service was on the slow side. With reservations, it took 20 minutes to be seated and everything ran 10-15 minutes behind. There was valet parking which made going easier.

    The food was excellent and the bartender, waitress, and drink head were fantastic. The service would be considered excellent except that we had to wait almost 30 minutes for our table despite having a reservation. This was made extra frustrating because a table that did not have a reservation, that did arrive before us by a few minutes, was seated at 8:05 pm despite us having a reservation at 8 pm for the same size table. It was very bizarre to be kept waiting until past 8:25 pm for our 8 pm reservation and bizarre to seat a tablet that did not have a reservation before a tbale that did. We will still be back because the food was good and the rest of the service that evening was good but that was very frustrating.

    They sat us right by the door when it was below 25 degrees outside. We made multiple comments about how cold it was with people constantly opening the doors to the server and manager did not care one bit about fixing the situation. I’ve always been a fifth restaurant fan but this was a horrible experience.
