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 delectable three cheese cheesecake with chocolate chips on an oreo cookie crust leaves your taste buds craving for more.

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!

Celebrated my daughter’s birthday turning 12. She wanted authentic Italian food. We didn’t know what to order and asked waitress what to get. I had squid ink pasta for the first time and it was absolutely delicious!! Will be back. Also, we got to try several different wines for taste testing. Great waitress....forgot her name.

We started with the soft shells crabs with Chef Carlo's housemade sauce. They were absolutely delicious! After I had a fresh mesclun salad with shrimp and a lite dressing. My companion had pasta in a housemade red sauce with linguine and seafood galore. Maki our server was very pleasant and attentive. Our meal was wonderful.

We are so happy LaTavola has been open to diners. We live in the neighborhood and missed visiting your restaurant. The food is exceptional and the value is excellent, especially given the financial issues with having to shut down. The fresh fish in parchment paper has never let us down. It is delicious! The bruschetta is excellent. The service is always very attentive and friendly. Looking forward to our next visit

La Tavola is wonderful, it's become my go to Little Italy restaurant. I recommend them to everyone, because they make you feel at home. The food is on point, cooked to perfection and so fresh. I have always had such relaxing, comfortable, and enjoyable times there. Try it, if your sick of trendy restaurants, and want old school Italian and old school Little Italy vibes.

Went there for an anniversary dinner. Got the special and the carpaccio, carpaccio was pretty bland but I've never had it before, so that could just be how it is? The special was great, it was a whole fish in a sauce with spinach, artichoke, and diced tomatoes. Dessert was vanilla and espresso gelato. Everything was great, they have a lot of specials during the weekdays, so I would definitely come back.

Had a lovely dinner during our brief stay. Restaurant was a little dated in decor, could improve the lighting to create ambiance. The food was delicious. Service with Chris on point. Food was delicious. It did not rise to feeling “special” but it was positive overall.
