Probably one of the best Italian dinners we have ever had out!!!
First time there. Very early Sat reservation, 430pm. Super quiet atmosphere at that time. Food was excellent. Service was also very good. Professional. Menu selection is limited, however each one covers a group (pasta, fish, meat etc..) No disappointments for us. Venice style cuisine. Everything was fresh, fresh, fresh.
Try the homemade ravioli with ricotta, spinach and nutmeg. It is so creamy....but lite.
In all honesty, this is one of the best Italian meals I have ever had in my life. I travel quite a bit for business. I have had Italian meals all over the east coast. Something about this place stood out. The freshness of the pasta, the simple decor, the fantastic service......GO HERE. You will not regret it.
Chris our server was outstanding. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful. It was our first time visiting and we will definitely be back.
Waitress was very good; but that could not overcome the food. Pizzette came out cold. Pastas tasted old. Very disappointing experience.
The hostess/waitress was stern and rather rude. She brought iced tea that looked like a Bloody Mary and tasted awful. I left without ordering food.
I risk not being able to get a reservation but I must be truthful---La Tavola is spectacular---from the luscious menu, impeccable staff and creativity of Chef's daily specials---our favorite Little Italy spot AND restaurant for years. Just when we think that we have made a menu decision, the server describes the specials. ALWAYS order the specials and share. From the menu, our family favorites include Campo con Caprino, RAW Carpaccio di Manzo, Saltimbocca alla Romana , Teccio alla Veneziana, Linguini con Taleggio e Tartufo, Fettuccine alla Romana, Spaghetti Neri al Granchio, Linguini alla Scoglio, Penne con Vegetali. This is not Italian American food---this is Italian food as it is made by a chef born in Venice---flavorful, fresh, seasoned perfectly and served piping hot. Make a reservation now---your taste buds will thank me.
Incredible food and outstanding service! What more can you ask for?! The waiter shared a few foods he dreams about and now I will be dreaming about them too. We can’t wait to come back!
The 4 of us enjoyed our meal. Service by Morgan was good. Food was very good! We will definitely come again when we return to Baltimore.
The friendliness of the staff was evident immediately, the food was outstanding!
One of my favorite restaurants when visiting Baltimore. I personally love their home made pasta and cannoli's.
Wonderful food and service! Can’t wait to go back!
The food was tasty, the staff was wonderful, and the room was quiet
Another excellent experience at La Tavola. We were a party of 5 on a late Sunday afternoon. Spaghetti neri al granchio was perfect as always. Other pasta dishes were above par as well. Fritti Misto? and cozze e vongole had smaller portion sizes but good. Charlie was very knowledgeable and attentive--he recommended a good bottle of wine to pair and even brought out cloth and baking soda solution (I think?) to get rid of a pasta sauce stain for a friend.
We have been coming back throughout the year and each time has been consistently excellent food and service. I highly recommend the lasagna dish (my favorite) but all of the meals are spectacular. Nice wine offering as well.
Fantastic fresh made food. Excellent service. Will definitely return!
Server was excellent.....we were glad to have an opportunity to get the smaller portions of the terrific pasta....It was a great experience, and it's really nice to be in a restaurant where you can hear each other talking!
I sat at one of the high-top tables in the bar and Allison, the bartender, took great care of me. In fact, everyone there helped make my meal exceptional. I had the bruschetta to start and it was amazing, very light. The tomatoes tasted so fresh and the olive oil provided just the right balance of flavors. I also had the vegetable penne. The pasta was the best I've ever had. You can tell it's homemade. The vegetables were cooked perfectly and the whole dish was mouthwatering. However, it is a huge portion and I'm sad to say I had to leave some behind. Finally, I took a cappuccino to go, along with the homemade cannoli. Highly recommended and I will definitely be back when I'm in Baltimore.
We went to La Travola by recommendation. And It did not disappoint.
The food was delicious and presented very well. Definitely will return.
From the first second we entered the restaurant we knew we were in a special place. The atmosphere was perfect and the food was fantastic. Our meals were hot and fresh and delicious, and the wine was superb! Definitely one we will keep in mind for a return visit when we are in Baltimore again.
I immediately noticed from just the entry door this was a good decision. The place is well maintained with a cozy, clean, and appropriately lit atmosphere. Wait staff were pleasant and attentive. Our orders were accurate. Our entrees arrived swiftly and were delicious. I will definitely be returning and recommending to others.
Amazing food and service! Christian took care of our party for 7 and was beyond attentive! The chef came out to visit and check on our meals! We've been here 3 times now and every time he makes it a point to walk around and ask if we've enjoyed our dish! My absolute favorite restaurant in Little Italy❤️
La Tavola is neighborhood gem. It is not elegant but it is a very nice and comfortable space. The waite staff has been there for some time and they know the menu and create a very friendly environment. The food is excellent, some traditional favorites but always some specials and new takes on classics. La Tavola is a great value; you can pay more, but you are not going to get a better dinner.
Have a wonderful lunch! The service was outstanding and the food was amazing, and true to their word save room for dessert.....so so good!
Service was amazing! Our server, Chris, was very nice and explained the menu to us
Our entire dinner experience at La Tavola was excellent. The food selections such as the homemade pasta and desert menu set the food aside from other restaurants in Little Italy. The service was very friendly. We even had the opportunity to meet Chef Carlo at the table which made our dinner really special. I plan on returning to La Tavola with my friends.
Food and service exceeded expectations! Pasta and desserts were amazing. Would love to try the chefs tasting menu
Will definitely be back next time we’re in Baltimore
My daughter and I had a lovely lunch and appreciated the friendly greeting by the manager and the efficient service from the server. The food was outstanding - the house made ravioli alla cream and the capellini were outstandingly delicious, as were both salads- insalata mista & caprese. Pizza Margherita was so tasty & the crust perfect! Save room for affogato!
Best restaurant in Little Italy. A group of us took a friend there for lunch and had a marvelous time. Most of the time, we were the only ones in the restaurant. The foot was outstanding, as was the service.
By chance we hit a 3 for 33 Tuesday - and wine pairing for a total of 50. That’s a bargain...
Very good food and wine, nice service and yes, I'd like to come back!
For of us went for dinner. Everyone thought it'd to be excellent.
La Tavola is the best Italian restaurant in the United States.
The Brunch Menu is not to be missed. It is a 19 item buffet that comes to your tavola. You can choose a 4 item option or do an unlimited option that gives you 2 hours to sample any and all of the items. Selections vary from savory to sweet and every one is delectably delicious. The brunch is only served every other week so check with restaurant for the next date. I don't think you will ever be disappointed.
We came for our friends bachelorette party and we had the absolute best time. Every single moment was perfect, the outstanding service of everyone in the restaurant but especially Melissa and Charlie. They made our evening one to remember forever and the food was absolutely incredible. All the pasta home made and just divine. We will absolutely be coming back next time we are in town and telling everyone that visits to go here!! Absolutely wonderful.
My wife and I loved our entire experience. The service was excellent, the food was outstanding, and it came out quickly. Our server explained every option available for us in detail including our entrée, our wine, and our desert. We will absolutely eat here again when in Baltimore. Wonderful Experience Indeed!
Great food, very attentive service. However, the courses arrived quite fast after each other. This is normal in the US, but as Europeans we would have liked to have a little more time in between courses (to finish our wines, etc).
Again, food was excellent. And it was a nice touch that the chef came by our table to check how we liked everything. Will definitely come back!
