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.

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.
crab bruschetta was delicious. Entrees were right sized and tasty
Excellent seafood dishes
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!
Our server Chris was outstanding!
Wonderful Food and Wonderful Desserts! Great staff, warm friendly ambience.
very good food and service as always, I have been going there for some years!
Great experience. Our waiter Daniel was excellent but seemed a bit harried since he had so many tables. His recommendations were spot on. We will be back.
The veal was tender and delicious! My husband had pasta with shrimp, scallops and mussels. He said it was excellent!
It was a great experience and they took appropriate measures for safety. I felt very comfortable the meal was incredible, awesome cocktails, and the waitstaff was amazing.
Service was great. Food amazing
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.
Great service, amazing food!
Given the covid restrictions the service was excellent as was the food. Can't wait to go back.
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
Everything was wonderful. Our server Daniel was very attentive and knowledgeable. This was the first time my guest had been to the restaurant and was so impressed with the food, service and the visit from Chef Carlo. The food was delicious and perfect.
Everything was very nice on our anniversary dinner. Maki was a great host and was very timely on her visits to the table to check on things.
Everything was perfect. The waiter was pleasant, on his game and extremely helpful. I highly recommend eating their. You won’t be disappointed.
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.
Best Italian restaurant in Baltimore! House made pasta, farm to table. Everything was delicious from appetizer to dessert. Service was exceptional (Dan and Maki).
Great food great service!
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.
Love this place and had great service!!
The food and drinks were excellent. They even have homemade gluten free pasta which is hard to find and it was delicious. We will definitely be going back in the future!
What a great little spot in Little Italy! We were greeted quickly and happily. The menu isn't extensive but it does not have to be. The dishes were amazing for every course and the wines perfect to pair. I would highly recommend La Tavola for all looking for a food authentic Italian dinner.
Our server, Chris was very helpful. We were dining here for the first time and had 2 young girls with us.
The food was very good and the wine selection was good as well. We enjoyed our meals and we were delightfully surprised when the chef visited with us. We will definitely return, g
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.
Long time, experienced waitstaff. Very friendly and knowledgeable regarding the menu and wine selections. The food is exceptional. Has been regular stop for many years. Thanks!
