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.

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.

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
