"Best Italian" - The Sunday Paper's Reader's Choice Awards. "Top 50 Restaurant" - Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Exposed brick, dark wood floors & rustic colors give La Tavola its authentic trattoria feel, while progressive touches hint at its innovative cuisine. The food is simple yet creative, elegant & certainly delicious - the kind of food you could eat every day or turn into a celebration.

La Tavola also offers one of the city's most unique brunch menus. It is a can't miss!

Legit location. Great food, great drinks (strong cocktails), overall good experience. Definitely swing by more often, plus $10 pasta on Monday’s... can’t say no to that.

Our waiter greeted us! We were fortunate enough to meet the executive chef. The food was excellent! We each had a Caesar salad. My mushroom ragu was unbelievable! I can’t wait to visit Atlanta and La Travola Trattoria again!

Food was good, but not great. Service was nice. Dining area was on the smaller side. The table in the corner literally at kitchen entrance and server assembly area was the worst. Overall, too many other restaurants around to try rather than eat here again.

It is a small restaurant but very cozy.....when we arrived they seated us a small round table that was difficult for my husband, who uses a wheelchair, to get comfortable at but thankfully they were happy to seat us in booth. Our meals (roasted chicken and pasta) were delish and service was attentive without been overbearing.

This really is a wonderful place, staffed with wonderful people.

The layout is a bit tight, and it can be a bit loud when crowded - but that’s part of the charm. The food is so good, you can’t blame people for clamoring in.

The pastas are my favorite, with tonight’s dinner including a pillowy mushroom gnocchi and a perfectly cook wild boar ravioli.

A lot of restaurants use “fresh” pasta these days but screw it up somehow. These guys make their pasta in house, and they cook it to perfection. I frankly have never been to any restaurant - especially in Atlanta - that creates and cooks pasta more perfectly.

I didn’t order it tonight, but the fish of the day was a striped bass. With Atlanta restaurants shunning freshwater fish for years - trout should be a staple in this town - I loved that these guys were bucking the trend.

While I’m not the biggest fan of “restaurant groups,” the charm, service, and food here makes me feel like I’m at a family owned restaurant that’s been serving happy customers for a hundred years.

Entrees were typically great. Not so with the dessert, a modernized version of an old favorite tiramisu. Pretty bad. Avoidable.

This place was cute with good service. The octopus starter was excellent. I enjoyed the squid ink pasta but it could have been better. My husbands risotto was not good at at he was very disappointed. My sons spaghetti marinara was also blah. The drinks were excellent also. The dessert were good. We were just very disappointed with the main dishes.

We come to Atlanta from New Braunfels, Texas, once a year to go to the Atlanta Market. Since we discovered La Tavola, we make our habit to eat there during our stay. We just love the place.

We had an early Saturday night reservation and was seated promptly. Focaccia was light with a crusty top. Pasta delicious. Attentive and personable staff. Thoroughly enjoyed dinner.

My wife and I ordered a Sweetwater 420, but were served some sort of bland pale ale. We didn't say anything because we were entertaining friends who live in NYC. And eat in a lot of great restaurants. And travel all around the world. And we were having a great time in such a great dining room. So we chose La Tavola as a destination for our Friday dinner. They mostly liked it very much. But my wife and I would have preferred to be served the beer we ordered. Otherwise, it was an outstanding evening. Oh, your wine list is way, way, way, way, way, way, WAY overpriced. You are not fooling anyone. Fix it.

Always an amazing meal at La Tavola! Happy that our waitress remembered us from our last visit and helped us to remember what bottle of wine we had. Food is always fresh and delicious! This is a neighborhood gem!
