The place looks a little outdared but the food makes up for it. Had the lassagna and it was very good. Home made style sauce. The service was fast and nice.
I think you will like it!

Great tasting food! It was served quickly (and still warm!) The staff was very friendly for our family of 5 - he projected the kids need (extra napkins, ketchup, crayons) stat! Yes, I bravely took a 2yr old out for fine dining and survived thanks to their excellent service! Will be back next staycation!

Decided to try out La Tavola based on excellent reviews. The service was excellent. This is the place to go if you’re looking to really social distance- tables are no where near close together. They truly care about their customers. Ambience was very nice. We had a couple of cocktails- I asked our server if the bartender could make me a “rum special” because I didn’t see anything on the drink menu that I wanted and they came through- it was refreshing! We had a prosciutto flatbread appetizer as a starter. We also ordered the beef carpaccio but it never came out- didn’t make a big deal about it. I had the eggplant chicken Parm and it was very good. My bf had the “rockfish, mussels and scallops” special and he didn’t like it at all. He said half of it was under cooked and had no flavor, but he didn’t send it back because that’s not what we do. The ambiance, incredible service, safety protocols and everything else was great so that made up for it. Plus it’s more important to support small businesses right now.
I’m still rating LaTavola 5 stars because it was very good. I just wouldn’t recommend getting any “seafood specials” that are not on the regular menu. If you’re going for Italian, order Italian and you can’t go wrong. Overall, I would still recommend going. Such a great spot in Little Italy.
Last piece of advice: build in time to look for parking.

Had a great dinner here one night just had to leave a note. All of the staff were very nice, attentive and professional and the food was just amazing. The lasagna was incredible (the most savory sauce I have ever had) and my wife's dish was perhaps the most flavorful sauce with truffle in the world. The burrata appetizer was fantastic and the bread as well! Strongly recommend stopping by.

You must eat here! The food is super duper delicious. I just wish the governor would lift the orders and let restaurants do a decent business. But if you are fearful of going out, this restaurant is very conscientious about making the dining area as safe as possible. This is elegant dining at a reasonable cost. You must eat here!

My boyfriend and I come here just for their “the w and w” (wine and whisky) drink. It’s amazing. Secondly, the chef comes up with different specials that are always fantastic. We loved the zucchini and fish poppers. Lastly, the wait staff is so knowledgeable of the menu that he could answer any question I had. I highly recommend!
