This was one of my favorite Italian restaurants 15 years ago -- but the food has not maintained the same level of quality. My go-to dish at that time was the duck ragu with paparadelle pasta -- I don't think that has been on the menu for some time. I had not been to La Tavola for at least 5 years and thought I'd try it again. I had the squid ink spaghetti with calamari, olive oil, garlic. The calamari was tasteless and its texture did not add to the dish. My friend had the tomato-lobster ravioli which she enjoyed. The nice thing to see was that the ambience and interior maintained its classic, comforting bistro feel. Service was attentive, prompt, and accommodating -- that counts for a lot.

Every time we go to La Tavola we have such a wonderful time. A true neighborhood gem. We sat at the bar and Rachel was so helpful with picking out food. She helped make the evening very special. 10/10

I have been dining at LaTavola as long as it has been in business! My experiences have always been consistently superior. Tonight I enjoyed the burrata with heirloom tomatoes and ribeye steak. My friend enjoyed the roasted chicken. Preparation was exceptional. Thank you for everything.

One of our best meals ever at our favorite restaurant! The Manti pasta starter was wonderful with corn purée stuffed small pasta pockets surrounded by a special pesto sauce, diced squash and baby tomatoes. We mopped the sauce up with the great Italian bread! Our entree of swordfish (the night’s special) sat atop a delicious tomato sauce and shiitake mushrooms - the flavors were fabulous! Since it was a birthday, we shared the boccone dolce, a toasted brown sugar meringue with creamy vanilla ice cream and fresh sliced peaches. Our server Emily was terrific, making great suggestions and offering attentive and friendly service. Another true mark of this restaurant’s customer focus was that two managers stopped by to see how we liked our dinners. Another great evening at La Tavola!

This is one of our favorite choices for dinner. We love sitting at the bar. All of the bartenders are wonderful.

Our recent brunch experience fell very short from a service standpoint. Our waiter seemed aloof and rushed. One of our dishes had a long hair in it. The waiter walked up as it was being pulled out. He didn’t say anything. No apology, no offer to remove the dish and replace it. This was an uncharacteristic experience for such a fabulous place.

SO this place was on the most romantic list for a date night and I will totally have to disagree. tables are on top of one another, it was very small for some many tables. The service was great but romantic it was not

I have been a neighborhood regular for years. Increasingly, the food is uneven (is had swordfish despite fearing that I would glow in the dark) and it was super salty, with 3-4. Eans underneath in a bed of weirdly tasting sludge.

Stick with the house made pasta.

Service was interminably slow.

I feel strange continuing to give glowing reviews to LaTavola but they are well deserved. Lobster and shrimp risotto, chicken, burrata salad, tiramisu and drinks without peer. Always nice to be recognized even by other servers who don't have our table that night, as well as the manager who came by to chat. So many fine restaurants where there might only be 1 or 2 items on the menu I really go for but at LaTavola they would all leave me drooling for more.

We sat in there outdoor dining area. It's more intimate and not as noisy as the indoor dining. Randall was our server and he did an excellent job. He was able to describe the entrees and help us make the right dinner choice. Wine and cocktail menu was very nice. The Burrata salad has the a wonderful creamy mozzarella cheese. My favorite was the Tagliolini dinner. Wonderful mushroom pasta dish. The Roasted chicken had a nice blend of flavor. It was a very pleasant dining experience and well worth the 120 mile round trip drive. We will be returning.

Went for our 14th Wedding anniversary.... Donna was our Server/Expert. She was excellent with her knowledge of the menu and her incredible ability to describe each dish in a way that brought the flavors to the table before the food ever arrived. And then! The food did not disappoint! Excellent pastas, bread, wine. Loved the fact that you can order a appetizer size portion of some of the dishes. Great food and service. #Thankful

LaTavola is one of the best Italian restaurants in Atlanta. They have a great wine list, very attentive staff, and a stellar menu. We go whenever we have a special occasion, and it's always a treat. I highly recommend their tagliatelle, saltimbocca, and the basil lemonada cocktail. Save room for dessert.

La Tavola is a dining experience extraordinaire. The food, beverage, space, patrons and staff are what makes dining out enjoyable + memorable. We will go back soon! Thanks to our bartender and server, Chris ( we dined @ the bar on purpose ) as she was most knowledgeable + friendly and has 20 years w/ La Tavola ( the Owners are lucky to have her ). Thank you for a wonderful evening, La Tavola!

My brother and I had dinner here to celebrate his birthday belatedly. The food was very good and our server Richard was very helpful. I had purchased a coupon that gave me $40 worth of food etc. for only $20 so it was a great deal. I was here with a friend last year and we also enjoyed our food very much. Richard was our server then as well. He was much friendlier this time. Perhaps he just had a bad evening when we were here last year. The food and drinks are priced fairly. I will definitely return and perhaps try sitting out on the patio next time.

I love La Tavola. It is my go-to spot for a nice dinner in the Virginia-Highlands. It is bit pricey, but well worth it. They have 10 dollar pasta specials on Monday, but always end up getting the fish of the day.

Impeccable meal and service. Super relaxed spot with beautiful outside area. We dined on patio while it was raining out, making it even more wonderful. The squid ink pasta and mushroom ragu were the showstoppers. Truly some of the best Italian in the area.

La Tavola is the Italian food of the people for the people. Their staff has never let me down from the brain to the taste buds. Inexperienced Italian diner's rejoice as their staff makes you feel empowered and welcomed. Even if you don't know what wine to pair with your food.

We arrived and received a hardy greeting as we entered the restaurant. After being seated the waiter explained the menu and specials and a great night of drinks and food was started. Drinks, Starters and Entrée were spaced out perfectly to have a nice conversation over diner with nice jazz in the background.
A truly relaxing Italian meal was served. I will return with more of my friends that would appreciate both the service and the food.

Food and service were on point. Unfortunately, we were seated at one of the tables sandwiched between the bar and the booths. I was just too cramped and made it hard to relax with people squeezing in and out of their seats at the bar and severs moving plates of food over my head.
