The gnocchi at this restaurant is completely out of this world amazing!!!

My boyfriend and I were looking for a new place to try… This popped up on OpenTable and I’m so happy we gave it a shot. The restaurant itself is very intimate and the ambience is lovely. The service was good and the prices were fair. Again, the gnocchi plate that I had was probably one of the best pastas I’ve ever eaten in my life!!!

The food is extraordinary! Never a surprise always what it should be. I’m amazed at how I am consistently pleased. Everything is deeply satisfying. Plus I like the space and all the staff are very knowledgeable.

My wife and I decided to attend a concert nearby and found this highly rated restaurant to try out. One of the things that attracted us was the dinner menu. Unfortunately, through no fault of the restaurant, It was New Year’s Eve and they had a prix fixe menu like most establishments. I was disappointed because I had previously craved a few items on the dinner menu that were not offered prix fixe. The items we ordered were very nice, and we would definitely go back again to try out the main menu items. I was very impressed with our appetizer which was a bruschetta with smoked trout, some kind of cheese (possibly goat) and trout roe. See photo. It reminded me of a very elegant bagel with cream cheese and lox. The only other disappointment was that we had to sit on the back patio. It was nicely laid out, however the view of the parking lot was not very inviting at all. We will definitely request a table inside on our next visit.

My wife and I come here often and we LOVE it! We always take out of town guests here and they LOVE it. We were both a bit disappointed to find out that day that there was going to be a fixed menu. I was only able to eat one thing on the menu because of this. Very dsapointing.

Ate here with my family over the festive season and as always good food, wine and a lively atmosphere. It is one restaurant that has kept its standard of food over the years whereas we find a lot of restaurants around Atlanta start off well and then go downhill by the second visit. It is worth driving to in summer and winter! Had the salumi board to share as an appetizer and I then had the grouper for entree while the rest of the family had pasta. We were too full for dessert!

My wife had pork tenderloin - outstanding. She was also very pleased with the wine our server Richard suggested. My spaghetti Carbonara without meatballs was good. Salads both excellent. Service warm, friendly, and professional. We look forward to our next visit to La Tavola.

This is a hidden gem, must visit place. Spend my wife's birthday here as she loves Italian food. The food is amazing, everything is cooked delicious. Only complaint is probably the restaurant is quite squeezy as its crowded. The employees take note of our food allergies, the server, Harris is full of energy, excellent service. We ordered the Calamari, its so good and fresh, the ravioli is a must try, tagliatelle cooked perfect. Everything is made from fresh ingredients. We were also given a complimentary apple cake which made us both foodgasm, probably the best apple cake we ever had in Georgia! Will definitely be back again for their brunch menu.

This has always been a great, reliable, neighborhood gem. The staff and kitchen seemed very disorganized for a Monday night - perhaps they didn't expect it to be so busy but it is the holiday season so you'd think they would be prepared. Service was way off and there seemed to be a perpetual butter fire in the kitchen. Not their best night.

As many times as we have dined at LaTavola over the past 9 years, it never fails to impress. We dine out often and while having other restaurants we enjoy, frequently there is only 1 item on the menu we would choose. At LaTavola it is always difficult to decide since 95% of the offerings are favorites. Squid ink, mushroom tagliolini, veal saltimbocca, chartucerie, salads, seasonal entrees, desserts, you name it, better than you will get anywhere.

Service is without peer. We got to know many servers over the years and Erica has taken over as our current favorite. We were celebrating and she and management saw to it that the evening was extra special.

I have mentioned in previous reviews that it always feels like we are in New York, Boston, or San Francisco when dining at LaTavola. The ambiance, background music, and family atmosphere is like dining at your favorite relatives home. Can't wait to return.

My husband and I have been going to La Tavola together since 2005. We now live in East Cobb but keep La Tavola in mind for special occasions. The last 3 times we've been there it just hasn't been the same. The GM who was there for a long time knew us, or recognized us each visit, and was friendly with all of the guests. It helped make the place feel special. This was not the experience Saturday. Our go-to in the past has always been the pasta special of the night. La Tavola doesn't seem to be doing that anymore. The mushroom ragu has changed. The broccoli rabe was bitter. We have had the same servers for years, and Saturday our server had been there for 6 months and wasn't enthusiastic about the food or restaurant. Also, the 3 2-tops in the front of the restaurant are awful. I think that seating is new, we've never sat there in the 12 years we've been going, but it's a terrible experience. This was our favorite restaurant for such a long time, so we gave it 3 more attempts, but it's lost its luster.
