About

In the true style of an Italian osteria, At the Italian Table on Frankfort Avenue, in the Crescent Hill/Clifton neighborhood, offers authentic regional cuisine from Italy. The elegant atmosphere is old-world Italian, and dining is informal and friendly, with two communal tables that seat 10 each, making for a fun evening of great synergy, conversation and laughter. We welcome individuals, couples, small and large groups to join us for a fun evening of Italian food and wine! The menu changes each day and is based on what is fresh and in season. The $65 includes an antipasto, fresh pasta or risotto, a meat, vegetable, and salad course, and dessert. The all-Italian wine list is extensive and chosen to compliment the food, and the chef and staff are happy to make suggestions for pairing with the evening menu. Be sure to let us know if there are dietary restrictions or food allergies

This is one of the best values for going to “Italy” and staying right in your own backyard. Gina has to be one of the nicest, friendliest chefs in town and that’s goes without saying her food will place you In a state of taste bud heaven. This is authentic Italian and from the moment you enter her quaint restaurant you feel you’ve been transported into a small ristorante in Tuscany. The wine list is grand and for many wines not normally seen in Louisville. Her place is not to be missed .

From the time we walked in and were served a glass of prosecco, to the mingling with other guests, and finally the meal itself - the experience was fantastic. The food was wonderful, but the atmosphere was what set this dining experience apart from any other.

Gina never disappoints. Her food is delicious, and the atmosphere is fabulous. It truly is like being in your mothers kitchen, if your mother was a knock out Italian cook!
She and Stephen made our large family group feel welcome. We all left with a full belly, and great memories

Cramped into a small room I enjoyed meeting new people but I believe it is seriously overpriced. Granted it is unique. Several places I could spend a lot less for and get as good or better . Very nice owners and service good and friendly but a lot of money is all I can say

This is a quaint, tasteful, cozy little place that offers a wonder dining experience for just the two of you or 10 of your closest friends. The staff is warm and extremely welcoming. True Italian experience from the food; to the music; to the red wine pairing. We absolutely loved it and had a marvelous time. I highly recommend!

Most fun I've had at dinner in a long time. The family style seating provided for excellent rapport with other guests. The Feast of the 7 Fishes was a wonderful delicious surprise. Portions were perfect, I felt full but not stuffed after dessert. I'll be dining there regularly.

I cannot recommend this place enough. The entire dinner experience is unlike any regular restaurant. From the time you enter the door, it is as if you are visiting your Italian aunt for a family dinner.

We were run through the meal options, and helped to select a great Italian wine.

There are two large tables that seat around 8 people each. It isn't an intimate, private dining experience, but we had such an entertaining time with the people sitting with us. Great people, great food, great experience.

Each course of our meal was prepared with exacting precision, and the preparation lifted the ingredients to a higher level. We had a clear view of the kitchen which added to the experience.

One of our initial courses was a pasta dish in a Mariana-style sauce that was one of the best I have had anywhere in the world.

Our entree was an incredibly tender roast served with creamy mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts.

Dessert was an explosion of flavor with mascarpone, cherry, and who knows what else.

The meal culminated in, unbelievably, Christmas carolers who were making their way down the street. They entertained us with two songs before heading back into the night.

Again, you won't find another place quite like this, so do not miss this opportunity. Just make sure you leave plenty of time, as this dining experience will run a few hours.

Lovely, warm and celebratory space with hints of Italy. Very friendly staff and chef. The ricotta bruschetta and arugula salad was delicious. The wine (not included in cost of the evening) was super. The pasta course was very tasty in an interesting pasta shape, but was needing something...broth, acid, more tender pasta? Something. The chicken Marsala was good. It seemed like a good, well executed, basic dish. I think we were expecting and hoping for a bit more creativity and flair and for the dishes to have that ‘wow’ moment for the price and the wait to get reservations.

My husband and four friends were excited to try At the Italian Table restaurant since we had been told very good things about other friends' experience there. We were pretty disappointed though. For starters, we were seated around a table set for 10 guests but it should've only seated at most 8 guests. We were very cramped and kept elbowing our neighbors, and my husband was hit in the head by the waiter several times as he walked behind us serving food. Second, the food was not anything special. The pasta course was the best part of the meal, the rest I could've made myself. We were told by the waiter that cannolis were on the menu for dessert, which we were all looking forward to, however when dessert was served my friends and I were sorely disappointed to see a bowl of whipped cream topped with raspberries and biscotti crumbs. Finally, my husband loves craft beer and looks forward to having a beer or two when we dine out with friends. At the Italian Table only serves wine and spirits though. We've been to Italy twice and know they make great beer there. It would be nice to have at least one beer option on the menu for those that don't care for wine or hard liquor. For these reasons I can not recommend this restaurant to our family and friends.

The food was fantastic and it is a very small venue with two large tables so the noise volume at times can get loud. Our only problem was we wish we had invited another couple to go with us. It was a little awkward sitting family style with other couples and trying to find things in common.

We went to the Italian Table for my birthday dinner. Having never been we were excited to go. Unfortunately I don’t think it’s worth the money. The salad was good as was the Grilled lamb. But the rest was just okay. With that said we thought the dessert has to be delicious....not at all. Probably the most disappointing part. Mousse with a fig and tiny crumbles.
Would not go again.

Our party of 8 had a fantastic evening and we all enjoyed meeting the lovely couple who completed our table for 10. The food was delicious - I was terrified of trying lamb, but I'm so glad I kept an open mind! The meal was expensive, but I thought it was priced fairly for everything we received.

This place is amazing. High touch service and wonderful authentic food. We went for a work team dinner and took up a whole table - there are two 10 person tables available each night so if you have a small party you’ll have to sit with others. FYI it is a bit expensive but definitely an experience you can’t have elsewhere. Highly recommend!
