Sample size of Chef Carlo's freshly made pasta
Fresh pasta layered with our simple yet delicious Bolognese and Bechamel sauce
Lady fingers dipped in imported espresso & marsala wine delicately layered with mascarpone sweet cream finished with a touch cocoa powder
We had a delicious meal (as always) served by a very patient, thorough waiter! Excellent all the way around!
Food was excellent and staff were outstanding. Tremendous entrees and desserts
Linguine with truffles was spectacular! I would definitely recommend.
La Tavola had amazing fresh made pasta! I highly recommend the lasagna.
We are strangers to Baltimore, so we relied on Open Table to guide us to a good place to eat. La Tavola was a true find--it's worth visiting Baltimore just to dine there. The pasta and dessert (tiramisu to die for) were home-made, everything was fresh, and Dee was an attentive but not intrusive server. (She recommended the tiramisu, for which my companion is deeply grateful.) I loved my ravioli, and my companion loved his lasagne. Although each is an ordinary menu item at Italian restaurants, both were prepared at La Tavola with a sophisticated touch. Absolutely scrumptious. You can't go wrong at a restaurant this good.
We had the housemade lasagna and it was divine.
I wish I could be more positive, but the food was lackluster. We visited for brunch on a Sunday which was a good time to be there but were disappointed with the food.
Restaurant was great! Had a great meal and great service. Was not very busy when we went since we went before the dinner rush. Will definitely return for another meal.
Celebration dinner for our wedding
Service was fantastic and the meal was perfect. My son absolutely loved the spaghetti neri. Calamari was great. Dessert was so good! Everything was fresh! I’ll be back!
This is an excellent place to eat. The food is amazing.
Was celebrating my birthday. We ate outside. Food was delicious (nice specials ) but was disappointed that my birthday was not acknowledged with a candle or anything else.
Nothing more to say with the 5 stars. Dan was our server. Great guy and very personable.
The waiter had way too much cologne on
Delicious pasta and pomodoro sauce
Great food, a couple tweaks here and there would make it excellent (it’s summer, the bruschetta tomatoes should be amazing, not mushy). Overall a pleasant dining experience.
There was four of us and every dish was outstanding
My mentor and I choose this restaurant after raving reviews. The appetizer Caesar Salad was one of the best I ever had, HOWEVER the entree lacked flavor . My mentor sent her dish back (I believe it was fried seafood appetizer), mine was a pasta. The pasta ordered lacked flavor plus the seafood within the pasta didn't seem fresh.
Zucchini flower special was awesome. Veggy Ravioli was great. Service was quick and very professional.
Great food, great service
Rita was an amazing server and did whatever it took to make us feel great. The main course I chose was the fish special, it was horrendous , I did not like it. We ordered another appetizer.
wonderful evening, food always exquisite, service was perfect, limoncello was a great touch at the end
Though the prices are a little higher, it is worth every penny
Server was cheerful, helpful and obliged a special request. Gluten free pasta was excellent
Great food! Ate on street seating. Good experience all around. Pretty authentic Italian food. Will do again!
It was our wedding anniversary and they didn't acknowledge it at all (it was expressed in the reservation), I thought that was poor. The food was pretty good, don't know if I would make it one on top of the list visiting Baltimore,
Delicious food and friendly service. Their specialties are definitely in seafood Italian dishes.
Service was great! Quick and efficient and friendly! Food was very good!
The food was delicious and the service was very personal. My girlfriend and I had a marvelous time. We highly recommend that tiramisu
We were in town for my birthday. We made reservations, not sure if they would have been needed, it was not full when we arrived, but our table was waiting when we walked in. The service was wonderful. We had a lovely woman who knew the menu perfectly. We ended up ordering from the "Specials" menu both entrees and dessert. The Lamb was perfection, and the apple crisp dessert was worth the trip alone. It was a wonderful date night location. Wonderful food. Would definitely return if in the area.
Great house made gluten-free pasta! Very impressed.
Amazing authentic Italian dinner. The Burrata was divine and the home-made pasta perfection! Martini was cold and dirty, and dessert delicious!
Our meal was excellent. I got the bronzino served whole and my husband got the spaghetti Neri. Both were very good. Never a bad meal here. Delicious desserts of tiramisu and chocolate chip cheesecake.
My son’s graduation dinner and we had our dog with us. We were seated on the sidewalk in the shade- very nice. Food was terrific and the waitstaff was superb.
Food was delicious!! Service excellent.
Hidden gem in little Italy.
Very disappointed. Not sure if they were overwhelmed with customers or what. Chicken parm came with a “side” of vegetables that looked like they were sitting under a light for hours. Requested a side of pasta...$9.00 for a measly bowl of pasta!!!! I felt bad for the waiter he was running up and down stairs. would not recommend!!!
Had a surprise birthday dinner from my fiancé at this location last night and the entrees were phenomenal. The caviar could have used a bit more salt in the breading but outside of that it was really good. I will be back for that delicious lasagna soon!
Great service and, as always, outstanding food. Always will be one of our favorite places.
All menu items looked appealing. The dish Thai ordered was excellent. The same for my wife’s entree choice. We need to return to sample more of the menu.
Wonderful experience! We took our 3 kids and our waitress was amazing with them! From the second we stepped in the door, we felt like a valued customer. The food was exceptional! We can’t wait until we’re in Baltimore again so we can have a dinner there again.
