Service was very friendly with great recommendations, including wine. The cheese plate was good, the burrata was excellent. We enjoyed the outdoor seating although were approached by a number of people on the street, which is understandable but was a bit over the top by the 4th time. Fantastic experience!

Anniversary dinner. Sat on the cozy balcony with heaters, enjoyed outstanding service and delicious food as always. Monday night has several pasta and appetizer specials that are very reasonable at $10 each… Outstanding wine list. Truly a neighborhood treasure. Worth a drive.

New policy which I had not seen before of an additional 20% service charge for our party of two bill. Apparently, the wait staff is now on salary so the service charge goes to the house to offset those salaries. In order to reward our particular waiter, we gave an additional 10%. Whatever it takes to keep our eating establishments up and running during this pandemic. Outstanding food and the outdoor patio was perfect.

Molto Monday is such a great time to visit La Tavola. Three different kinds of pasta on the menu for $10 each. We got the carbonara and rigatoni. Both are delicious. The service is always great. There is outdoor seating available as well.

We always have a great experience at La Tavola. The staff is knowledgeable about the food and drinks or they always follow up with answers to questions. The food and drinks are marvelous. This visit I had the special of swordfish on a bed of pureed eggplant and couscous, and my husband had the saltimbocca. Both were scrumptious. They brought us a complimentary dessert because I was celebrating my birthday. Would recommend to everyone.

We came here for a special occasion and had an amazing experience. Having lived in places with authentic Italian food, I am very particular, and the food here is excellent. The bolognese is my favorite, it is full of flavor. My date said it tasted exactly like a dish he had in Italy. Even the caesar salad was amazing....and the service was impeccable, which made our night. They are also doing a good job social distancing. We sat on the patio out back, spaced apart from other tables. It was quiet and calm, I think I would rather sit out there from now on. Definitely a great place to go for a night out.

To begin, Tavola is our favorite restaurant. Our experience on Saturday was not good. We both had the Zuppe de pesche and it was sub par. Our server Blake was excellent. We understand that these are very difficult times and will certainly continue to support all of the Fifth Group Restaurants. Judith and Martin Freedland

20% Covid surcharge was understandable. When the check arrived the waiter and I attempted to pay with cash the waiter advised us that cash was not accepted. Manager came over to table and defended the policy. Rude manager. Waiter Will is very good. I've been a customer for 15 years and I regret to say that the food was below average this night. Nothing of the three people dining was served hot and their signature dishes were soggy and dripping with excessive oil. We were there two weeks ago and it was delish.

We have really enjoyed this new neighborhood spot. The service is terrific. The food is tasty though not super imaginative. Salumi board is very generous (better than most) and the entrees are basic but good. To be fair we have not been too adventurous in trying the daily specials. My only wish is the wine list could be expanded to include a few not so pricey but good value wines. What if there was a featured wine each week or month?? Or perhaps a specially priced wine each week like one of your competitors has on Mondays? Shared a salad, 1 entree per person and a bottle of nicer wine is $130+ and a service charge. Kind of a lot for a date night :)

Wonderful Evening

La Tavola has been one of our favorite restaurants for years and our latest outing did not disappoint. We requested seating on the back patio where we found tables were distanced and staff all had masks on. We ordered several appetizers with the grilled calamari being the favorite of the table. All our entrees were delicious. The deserts were delicious as well. We know it is a tough time for small local businesses due to Covid-19 and I want to thank La Tavola for doing their part in helping to make people feel safe while also continuing to serve fantastic food with a wonderful staff. It is a gem in our neighborhood. It was a memorable evening and we'll be back.

It was our first time here in a year due to the pandemic, and we are already planning our next visit. We were able to sit outside, with nice space between tables, and there was hand sanitizer available near the door just inside the entrance and near the door to the outside seating. Inside, tables were skipped to keep people well-spaced also. As always, the service was excellent, from our primary server Emily to the manager who stopped by our table to check on things and wish me a happy birthday. The food was also as tasty as ever, from our Tagliolini pasta (our favorite) to the Veal Saltimbocca. The seasonings and flavors were wonderful and it remains our favorite restaurant in Atlanta. We look forward to going back soon!

Always a great dinner at LaTavola. I had the Tagliatelle bolognese which is very flavorful and a good portion size. My wife had the consistently outstanding Saltimboca. LaTavola’s servers are very good and give you the time you need to enjoy the meal without feeling rushed. Glad to see that business was fairly good given Covid restrictions.

The service was excellent, starting with how accomodating and nice every one was about moving us to a better table. We were initially seated right in the middle of a high traffic area, both with servers coming and going and people being seated or headed to the restrooms. Before we ordered anything, a booth became available and they asked if we would like to move - they could tell we were ducking everytime a plate of pasta traveled over our heads!! So once we were seated comfortably, they brought us flutes of champagne to acknowledge our upcoming wedding anniversary - a total surprise! They keep records of their customers - we were very impressed. And the food was outstanding - my husband had a ceasar salad and the veal; I had the pork appetizer (that comes with a fabulous little green salad), followed by the mushroom ragu pasta. Our server made great suggestions for wines by the glass. We split the tiramasu, which was an unuasl and delicious variation on the classic. We decided to come back more often after this great experience.

Great experience. We sat out in the back patio and were greeted by our server who was spectacular the whole evening. Kept our drinks full, offered suggestions for the menu, and was attentive but not overbearing. Food was excellent as always and will be back soon. In addition, all staff members greeted us and made sure we were satisfied with our experience!!!
