He then layers the pasta with his simple but delicious Bolognese and Bechamel. From this classic Ventenian style lasagna to his award winning Spaghetti Neri al Granchio, Ranked "Best Pasta Dish in Maryland" by the Daily Meal 2018, 2019, 2020, everything is made with love.

The service was very prompt. I got seated and served fairly quickly. My pasta was amazing. I got the seafood pasta with clams shrimp mussels, etc. It was meant to be spicy but absolutely wasn’t; very well seasoned.
Great classic Italian with a fresh and lighter flair. Everything was cooked and prepared perfectly. My uncke us a chicken parm fanatic, eating all over NYC area and he thought it was one of the best with eggplant. No hewvy ladden with cheese. My wife and I had the otcopus ink spaghetti with seafood. It was excellent. Grillee calamara and their saladsnwere also great.
So glad you enjoyed your dining experience. We look forward to your next visit.
My friends and I went to La Tavola for my birthday dinner, and the staff made it feel extra special. I ordered the bruschetta, ravioli alla crema, and tiramisu, and everything was delicious (as usual). I'm excited to go back soon.
Thank you so much for celebrating with us. We had a great time with your party and are so glad you enjoyed yourselves.
Above all, the service was fantastic. That’s what stood out about this restaurant for me.
Thank you so much. We are fortunate to have such an amazing staff.
Excellent! The appetizer eggplant rollini had the perfect fresh sauce, so I knew that the meal would be special. Grilled calamari was perfect, as was my wife's seafood with squid ink spaghetti. Cocktails, service...everything was just right. The entire meal, especially the dessert perfiterols, took me back to meals more than 50 years ago to my Sicilian grandmother's in Buffalo. La Tavola rates with the best Italian restaurants I've been to, from Buffalo to Brooklyn. Next time we're in the Baltimore area we'll be back!
So glad you had such a memorable experience. Thank you so much for celebrating with us!
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!
Thank you for your feedback. The Lasagna Bolognese is one of our most popular selling items.
Such amazing service! Our waiter was so gracious and made my best friends birthday so special!
Thank you so much for celebrating with us!
A little gem in Baltimore. Outstanding service and delicious food at La Tavola! Portion sizes were a little sparse for the price, but food was fantastic. We will return when back in Baltimore.
Thank you for your feedback. We look forward to your next visit.
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!
Great food, great chef, great service. Needs customers to recover from pandemic times--best Italian food I've had in Baltimore and I've tried most of the Italian restaurants in Baltimore.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We look forward to having you dine with us again soon.
Great service. Nice restaurant
Thank you for joining us.
Service was spectacular and food was tasty. Chef made a visit which is a nice treat to be able to ask any questions of the kitchen and the food. Pasta was perfect and the homemade cheesecake was heavenly. Highly recommend a visit to Little Italy and La Tavola.
Thank you for joining us. Look forward to seeing you again.
Truly, high quality fine Italian specialties! Home made pasta, fresh and tasty fish and seafood, amazing home made desserts. Chief Carlo and all staff super gently. Fine but familiar ambient. Unique, absolutely outstanding!
Thank you for your feedback.
Excellent service. Food was excellent and waiter was very knowledgeable and patient.
So glad you have an enjoyable experience. We looking forward to seeing you again soon.
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.
We are grateful for all the feedback. Hope to see you soon.
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.
Loved it - La Taleggio pasta was unreal. Keith was a great server and steered us just right in his recommendations. We will definitely be back. Thanks!
We do our best to create a memorable dining experience. We are grateful for our wonderful staff, especially Keith who has been with us for over a decade. Thank you so much for your feedback. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
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!
We are so glad that you felt comfortable dining with us during the pandemic. Safety is our priority and we will continue to go above and beyond Covid safety protocols. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to seeing you again soon for another memorable dining experience.
We always look forward to dining at La Tavola and we were especially happy that the restaurant has survived COVID! The food is wonderful and the service is always very friendly. During our most recent visit, our guest ordered the lasagna with veal and thought it was amazing. Thanks so much for a great evening.
Thank you so much for your feedback. So glad you and your guests enjoyed themselves. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
Wonderful atmosphere, food, and service. Temp checks were given upon entry and management is very concerned about customer safety and comfort.
Thank you for the kind words. We will continue to go above and beyond Covid Safety Guidelines to do our part is slowing the spread and allow everyone to enjoy a much deserved night out.
Please go and partake! Chefs Carlo and Moses put no only culinary delight into each dish but you can feel the love in every bite. THE CHEESECAKE IS A MUST! Javier and Anthony know their menu and their wines!
Thank you so much for joining us. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
One of the most beautiful dining experience I’ve ever had
So glad your Valentine's Day celebration was enjoyable. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.
Experienced a most excellent meal at a nice corner area of La Tavola! Their wine selection is excellent and their Osso Bucco was truly superb! I simply could not have resisted ordering dessert as well!
The braised lamb shank is one of my favorites. Try the Chef's Table on your next visit - a 4 course dinner personally tailored to your party. You won't be disappointed.
The food was amazing and authentic! Services were great! Looking forward to coming back here.
Great food very authentic and lots of flavor! I will be back.
Thank you for your kind words. Chef Carlo prides himself on continuing the traditions of his home town of Venice with fresh local ingredients. We look forward to your next visit.

Best Italian Restaurant in Baltimore. Chef Carlo is a masterpiece. Can't wait to go back!
I would highly recommend this establishment. Everything was amazing from the food to the staff.
Great experience and the food was wonderful.
The pasta was exceptional and the drinks were strong, tangy, and sweet. Had a really great time for my first time. Will definitely be back.
The food is great, lots of options, drinks were amazing!! Our waiter was very caring and accommodating. Was very knowledgeable about the menu and was really funny!
Excellent house made pasta. Fish and shellfish were outstanding. Rey knowledge wait staff regarding wine choice
Amazing food, great service. Easily one of our favorite places in Baltimore.
The service was excellent! We enjoyed our server very much. The atmosphere was quiet and romonatic. Our appitizers were really tasty.. Our entrees were ok. the seafood could have used a bit more seasoning but overall not a bad experience at all.
We had a fantastic time at La Tavola. Chris was very attentive, funny and his recommendations were spot-on. We will definitely be visiting this restaurant the next time we are in Baltimore.
Love this spot number one, quality at its best. Great
One of the best restaurants in little Italy. Pasta was delicious. My gf loved the tiramisu martini. Good staff.
La Tavola is a subtle gem in Baltimore. The food is always excellent as well as the service. It is understated which makes it a great value. When you want some great comfort food, it is a go to.
