We had come to Baltimore for a long weekend and were lucky enough to dine at La Tavola. The food was incredible, our server was charming and attentive and we had a wonderful evening. We will be back on our next visit.
Everything perfect! Highly recommended. Will come again.
Service was spot on, and I have eaten a lot of good meals in my day, but this meal was beyond outstanding. From apps to dessert, this dinner is something of the rarest dreams. My explanation of the dishes we had wouldn’t do them justice, but we did have two of the specials. Only down fall is that everything was too good it might turn into a special occasion spot instead of just go and eat. Either way, definitely worth the stop by, beyond excellent
Food was great. It’s a smaller place so they need to turn the music up but end of the day loved it, staff is excellent and Daniel are waiter was perfect.
Wonderful food and wonderful service! La Tavola is also very accommodating with plenty of gluten-free options. I have celiac disease and their gluten-free pasta and gluten-free gnocchi are SO delicious!
La Tavola Might be my new “go to” in Baltimore. The food was outstanding, and it is reasonably priced. The service was friendly and the atmosphere is nice.
The service and attention was exceptional! All the menu is home.made from scratch and you acn tell immediately on the first bite. Apps, entrée and dessert very good. Highly recommend for any ocassion.
Excellent as it had been year after year. We try and have dinner here while in town each year for a convention.
Food is beyond compare and the service is outstanding!
The food is always wonderful… especially the “specials”
We tried the daily specials and it may have better to eat off the regular menu. The first time I was there we enjoyed our meal more much more. Had a wild boar dish that’s was very tough to eat. Flavor was fine texture was not. Also tried the rock fish special and it could have been a little bit fresher… good but might not have been the freshest I have had there. Carlo makes wonderful pastas and seafood dishes… I will stick with those in the future.
Really good quality of food and setting. Owners to the staff are all engaging and nice.
In 2020 Christmas, we almost had the place to ourselves and got spoiled by extra service. 2021 Christmas came and the return felt natural. However we were not alone at all and had to wait to be seated. Good for them. I had a seafood linguine and it was excellent with a very generous proportion of shellfish.
Good place if you are looking for a quiet place to dine. Food was average, nothing special. Price is definitely on the higher side. I felt waiting time could be shorter, but they made it up with free dessert. So, overall it was an okay experience.
A gem in Baltimore’s Little Italy that never disappoints. Excels at seafood, wine pairings, and eye-popping desserts. Will return for next celebration.
This is a fabulous place if you want pasta or seafood (or both). We had Fritto Misto-the calamari was perfectly crisp well as the farm fresh vegetables. The marinara sauce was delicious. I had the mushroom, spinach, ricotta ravioli and I dreamed about it that evening. The sauce was perfect. I did not really think that the bread was perfect but it was decent. We may make this a Christmas tradition.
Waitress was not good. New enough that she couldn’t even pronounce or describe any of the entrees without hovering over our backs while reading the menu… inattentive at bests
We had a great experience. The food and service was superb. You have to try the cheese cake.
Loved the Christmas decorations! Our server was Maki, and she was wonderful; very patient, upbeat, & knowledgeable. I had the Rock Fish special & my husband Teccio alla Veneziana, both dishes were perfection. We had Tiramisu & Cheesecake with coffee & cappuccino, everything was delicious. This was our first time going to this restaurant in Little Italy, and it did not disappoint! We’ll be coming back again.
Amazing food and wonderful service. It was a great experience for an 18th birthday celebration
Had a great time. The host was the man! Will be back!
Started with the Bruschetta. Had the lasagna and ossobuco Ended with the tiramisu. Everything was delicious. Server was attentive and friendly. Excellent experience and highly recommended choice in Little Italy Baltimore
Amazing food and service! Will be returning for more soon!
Meh, honestly, pretty marginal meal. The local family Italian places in every strip mall are just as good...and cost like 60% less. I wouldn't recommend.
The waiter was very entertaining. He seemed to really enjoy what he did. I’d go back just for him honestly
My husband and I had the Frito Misto as an appetizer and it was outstanding. He had the Linguini Scoligia which was delicous with an abundance of seafood on top. I had the chicken Parmesan which was super tender and wonderful. We had a tartufo for dessert that was also spectacular.
We came here to celebrate a birthday! We had a wonderful time! The dishes were each amazing and made from scratch! The service was excellent! We will definitely come back again!
Everything was wondering! Service, food, ambience.
We will definitely be back
Food was well-prepared and staff were very friendly.
Delicious housemade bread and pasta! My vegetable pasta dish was wonderful. Nice ambiance and good service too.
Wonderful meal. Daily specials were amazing. Highly recommend.
Great service and food to celebrate a birthday. Everyone was very friendly and attentive. The food was amazing.
Our dinner was absolutely delicious! Excellent service all the way around. Would highly recommend everyone going there to enjoy authentic food and everything this restaurant has to offer.
Dan was an amazing waiter.. food was absolutely amazing!! I can’t pronounce what I ate but it was like a seafood stew! Would highly recommend this place!

Charming setting with delicious food in Baltimore’s famed Little Italy
The food was honestly amazing. Every dish we ordered was delicious. We will definitely be back to continue to try the rest of the menu.
Attentive and friendly staff, delicious food and drinks, in a nice but comfortable atmosphere.
A great find in Baltimore's Little Italy! I'll be back when family comes to town for a delicious traditional Italian meal!
Excellent dinner! We arrived early and had cocktails at the bar. The bartender knew how to make a great drink. Service was outstanding! Samuel was on point. I definitely recommend La Tavola!
