Food, service, and ambiance were awesome. Will go back and do recommend La Tavola highly.
Excellent gem of a restaurant in Balitmore's little italy neighborhood. Service was 5* without the pretentiousness of a lot of similar restaurants. Foods taste spoke for itself and all the food was light but complex in flavor. Would definately come here again. Can't wait to try the dessert next time we were just too stuffed from the delicious pasta/seafood to pursue it this time around!
They really looked after our big and noisy group well. food came out quickly and they were attentive throughout. A good night.
Food was excellent and service was very attentive. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
The place has a very nice seafood meal, prepared with love and greatly presented. The portions are not too big, and the vine selection is perfectly complimenting the menu
Where do I start? Friends have been telling me about La Tavola for years---so mad that I waited so long to try it. Service (Ben) was attentive and gracious. Both the manager and chef/owner visited the table. And when I say visited, they engaged us in lively conversation about our meal and conveyed their passion for feeding people. LOVELY! The Montepulciano by the glass was the perfect start to the appetizer of the day and a lovely bowl of clams and mussels. The mozzarella en carozza was like no other we have ever had---cheese, speck and finely chopped mushrooms in a crusty bread-like pocket---was served with beautiful tomato bruschetta. Where they get tomatoes like this in March is an oh so delicious mystery. Italian bread and focaccia helped us lap up the sauce that the clams and mussels were cooked in---heaven! Fettuccine Romano reminded me of a favorite dish that my nonna made---spinach and egg fettuccine in a parmesan cream with peas and speck. The perfect portion to satisfy without stuff. The lamb roulade special of the day was flavorful and beautifully presented with crisp roasted potatoes, garlicky zucchini ribbons and an herb topped tomato. A feast of the eyes and tastebuds. Don't miss their cheesecake or cannoli---light, luscious and like nothing you have had before. Support this local treasure and you too will wonder why you waited so long to try it!
We go to La Tavola often because we have loved the food as well as the ambiance which is relatively quite and attractive. This time, however, we didn’t like the food as well. The gnocchi, one of my favorites, was delicious as always but my husband ordered a lamb shank special which he didn’t like at all and the menu lacked some of our favorites and included mostly shellfish and fish dishes. We were told there is a new chef who focuses on Venetian specialties which are mostly sea oriented.
We would like to have the old menu with more beef, and veal options.
We’ll definitely go back and stick with our favorite pasta .
This is the best Italian restaurant in the city and state!
From the beginning to the end the whole experience was absolutely amazing. The wait staff were attentive, very knowledgeable, and respectful. Our waitress was Geri, and she gave us the best experience, and was very delightful! The chef came out to ask about dinner(because we chose the chef's tasting menu), was very nice, and receptive to what we wanted. The food, oh, the food was out of this world, every...single...course. I would come again, and in fact I plan to! La Tavola is the real deal, and a neighborhood gem!
Great food great service
This is one of my go-to places to take friends or family who come to visit. The food is fabulous, the prices are reasonable, and the service is great - very friendly, personable, knowledgeable without hovering or pestering. I learn so much about authentic Italian food just from asking the waiters questions. They're also very knowledgeable about their wine selection and pairing them with certain dishes. Oh, they also offer takeout, so it's really great place to stop after work.
Picked this place based on reviews that I checked prior to visit to Baltimore. Was very pleased. Service was outstanding and our waitress, Allison was very knowledgeable and helpful. A real plus with this restaurant is that you can order half portions for the lighter eaters in the group.
Amazing does not sum it up. From the personal service to the homemade extraordinary meals and unbelievable custom dessert tray. What an exceptional value. Relaxing, cozy, and a true gem in little italy.
Great food. Great Waiter.
Delicious handmade pastas. Very knowledgeable server and attentive service. Can’t ask for more. Great experience!
La Tavola just keeps getting better. The chef from Veneto is best at his pastas and seafood dishes, but the veal and chicken offerings are top notch as well. This has been a consistently good ristorante in Little Italy, with good service and a great wine list at reasonable prices.
Ate here for mine and my husband 8th wedding anniversary. The atmosphere was nice, a little more casual than I thought it was going to be. The food was great. I let the waitress choose my entree and I liked it. Monk fish tail over a bed of string beans. The lobster bisque soup I thought was delicious, but according to the table behind us, it was too spicy. (Don't know what spice they were referring to) I will eat there again, but probably just for a simple dinner or a casual dinner date. Will probably choose a place a little more formal for an anniversary dinner.
Excellent. Great service by Allison!
Very enjoyable, family friendly, great way to spend a 24th!
We were in Baltimore overnight celebrating my boyfriend's birthday. I am vegan and gluten
free so that was certainly the criteria for selecting a restaurant. I looked at the reviews on trip advisor & yelp and decided this was a good choice. We really enjoyed the meal, the atmosphere, the food and the wine! I had a gluten free pasta primavera and my boyfriend had seafood & pasta dish..both were excellent. Our waiter, Christian was incredibly attentive and pleasant.
Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Pleasant service a nd food. Nice wine list and reasonable prices.
Super fresh pasta and seafood. An all around delicious meal and great service!
This was our third visit to La Tavola in the past three months. We had a great meal. We sat upstairs this time in a large room that was comfortable. We had salads, each s different entree and shared two desserts. It was a leisurely dinner with good friends - it was their first visit- and we all thoroughly enjoyed the meal.
We are from out of town and ate here because of the great recommendations on OpenTable. We were not disappointed! The service was friendly and professional - great descriptions of the various offerings and specials. The pasta is made in house and is delicious - and served pipping hot. Value is very good. Despite the fact that it was busy, service was prompt and it was not unduly loud. Sorry we don't live closer, we'd be constant customers.
Nos encanto es una cocina 💯 italiana en Baltimore seguro que lo recomiendo
This place was fabulous! Really excellent food and service. The atmosphere was very nice as well. I was happy to find vegan options. The house wine was also decent. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Food was excellent. Pasta was all home-made. Staff was helpful but not intrusive. We were seated immediately even though we arrived a little early. I liked that a lot.
A light touch on all the sauces and dressings...very nice change of pace from traditional Italian food.
I truly think this is the best Italian restaurant in Baltimore. I genuinely appreciate that for how exceptional the food is, it remains remarkably quiet. I appreciate loud and trendy restaurants as much as the next person, but for a special night with family or a loved one... no better than La Tavola
Best pasta in Maryland. The daily specials are always worth trying. My favorite cocktail is the espresso martini.
I was not expecting this place to be as amazing as it was to me and my girlfriend. I picked this restaurant for her birthday and I am very glad I did make this choice. Food, amazing. Drinks, amazing.
Please go here if you like Italian food.
It was our second time at La Tavola and it hit the ball out of the park once again. There were four of us and the entrees were all delicious. We had the seafood Neri, the beef and veal lasagna and the seafood in parchment paper. The Neri and the seafood in parchment were interestingly presented, and the lasagna pasta was superb. Service was unobtrusive and the server knowledgeable about everything on the menu. Italian with a Venetian twist. A Great Meal.
We've been visiting La Tavola since we moved to Baltimore, for the past five years or so, and it has been consistently good all around. Unlike many of the other restaurants in the city that range in so-so to sometimes good, La Tavola is fantastic every time we visit. The homemade pasta is phenomenal, the flavors are explosive, and the bread is so warm and fresh. I love this place and can't recommend it enough.
Best Italian food in Baltimore. Fresh pasta, excellent fish, delicious desserts. And a low noise level - perfect for lunch or dinner with friends. Chef Carlo is a gem.
We went here with a group of 8 and they were great! The food was delicious and the service was awesome considering we were a larger group. Definitely recommend if you are looking for a good Italian meal!
Business dinner which happened to be during Restaurant Week -- excellent selections available. Truly hand-crafted in the kitchen. Very fresh and delicious. Service was prompt, friendly, and efficient. Excellent dinner from start to finish.
Don't go here for ambiance and decor -- it's comfortable but not fancy nor unique.
They could benefit from having much better stemware! - always a pet peeve of mine.
Daniel the server was great! Overall, a great experience!
Very nice. Great service. Very knowledgeable staff. Delicious!
A lovely restaurant, great food, outstanding service!
