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 Brian Moll leads a passionate kitchen with a focus on fresh local ingredients and time honored culinary traditions.

Brian's diverse background include stints as executive chef at The Farmhouse at Serenbe, owner and operator of the Chattahoochee Hills Food Shop and time in the kitchen of Ecco Midtown.

We were greeted with “Happy Anniversary “. The desired table was ready and the restaurant gave us a special occasion dessert. The food was excellent. We left very pleased.

                                                              I consider this one of the best Italian restaurants in Atlanta. The food and service are always top notch. The Fifth Group loyalty program is the icing on the cake. Highly recommend.

                                                              this is truly my favorite restaurant in all of Atlanta and the best pasta I have had in the state. The staff is warm and very accommodating. The food is delicious I really recommend the spaghetti with marinara I know it sounds like a simple dish but my G-d they make it perfectly. My husband takes me here every year for my birthday and the slice of orange olive oil cake you get as a birthday complimentary is to DIE for. So naturally I had to take my mom for Mother’s Day she loved it. I can’t stress it enough this is the best place.

The seafood was great...monk fish and mussels, lobster pasta and the most wonderful octopus appetizer. Our server, Amanda, was very attentive. Things were slow in the kitchen but we were kept apprised of what was happening and the bread with olive oil and a great wine kept us smiling.

As it was our first time, we had no idea what to expect. Our waitress was very nice and attentive1 Another surprise: when we ordered a bottle of wine, we were told that it was available only by the glass but finally, thanks to our waitress we got the bottle.

The food is always incredible and the ambience is spot on. Our service from the waitress was a little spotty this time but we will still be back again and again.

The food is always outstanding the service always friendly, knowledgeable and professional. We would highly recommend La Tavola to anyone looking for a great meal and experience in Atlanta.

                                                              Nice rear patio area. Though it is on back deck didn’t feel like parking lot was a hindering factor. Had goat cheese appetizer which was excellent. Dinner included the squid ink pasta and the Bolognese. Both good but squid ink can be a little spicy for those not liking a kick (I enjoyed it). Our server, Jodi, was excellent and attentive.

                                                              Spaghetti with veal meatballs is so yummy and comes as a very big portion. The restaurant itself is nice and cozy. My friends and I shared the salumi board to start - loved it! We ended the meal with espresso martinis and tiramisu. The tiramisu was interesting; there was some sort of ice on the top of it, so it was different than any tiramisu I've had before. The espresso martinis were a little too sweet for our liking.
