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!

    Scotty is hands down, one of the best waiters I’ve ever gotten, period. He was so friendly, so accommodating, and had the best recommendations for us based on the type of dining experience we’re were looking to have. He knows how to make guests feel like family and made our already amazing experience, a top night. Thank you, Scotty!! We’ll be come back to visit you again soon!!

    La Tavola is one of our favorite neighborhood date night spots. The food is always incredible (they have menu staples but also seasonal specials) and the service is always great. The staff is very knowledgeable and always come with recommendations.

    Every restaurant should have a Scotty on their staff! Service here is always fantastic but he is unmatched - he makes the best recommendations, is quick, polite, and so friendly. We shared the burrata, veal meatballs (a favorite) and I had the newer beef cheek casarecce pasta which may be my new favorite entree. The cheesecake with edible flowers at the end was to die for. Easily my favorite Atlanta Italian spot, and so lucky that it’s just up the street in my little neighborhood.

    We had reservations and were sat outside on one of the coldest night. There were heaters but we were chilly the entire time. Also, brought someone new to the restaurant and outside really lacked on the ambiance we were looking for. Also, our server did not review specials like the server next to us did. We felt like we missed out on a few things we would have ordered. Would have increased her sales as well!

    Reservations are a must at this quaint place. My wife and I enjoyed the ambiance and had a great table by a window. The appetizers were very good, the meatballs and the beet salad with goat cheese. Our entrees were delicious. I ordered the squid ink spaghetti which had great flavors. My wife enjoyed the bolognese. Our server Jackie was knowledgeable and helped us navigate the wine selections which were a little limited because they were changing the wine list. The dessert cheesecake was a delight! Highly recommend la Tavola.

    Best Italian we've had that we can remember - AND we were in Italy in October for 12 days!! Best pasta and the Olive Oil Cake was such a pleasant surprise for dessert that was unique and totally delicious without being yucky sweet!! Everyone was great from the manager to our outstanding server, Scotty! We are looking forward to our next visit at La Tavola - and we won't wait for a special occasion!! Don't miss this gem!!

    Overall excellent dining experience. Antipasti ordered included calamari, olives, burrata and Caesar salad. Each of these was the best we have ever had. The olives are whole and pitted, a selection they marinate themselves and were simply delicious. The burrata was light and fluffy, served over an incredible pistachio butter never before experienced. The calamari is not battered but sautéed crispy. The Caesar is their own take with a light tang that adds a welcome twist. Entrees included the mushroom tagliolini and veal saltimbocca. The pasta was creamy without being heavy and the mushroom flavor resonates. The veal was good, a little well done for me but the flavor more than made up for it. The sauces on all dishes really make this restaurant stand apart and make you want to come back. For dessert we had an olive oil cake that you might not order from the name or description but was a surprisingly perfect finish. The cake was dense without being dry and bursting with flavor. This was a birthday treat for a family member and we would definitely take others to experience this gem again. It is a very small restaurant so I highly advise a reservation. They pack in quickly and the noise level is louder than the music playing but not so loud that you can’t carry your own conversation. Parking may be tough on your own but they do have a valet in the evening across the street.
