    Awesome right from the start! Our table was ready and waiting based on our special needs request. Although they were very busy, multiple servers stopped by regularly to make sure our needs were being met. The food was well proportioned, hot and tasted great. An accident occurred with one of the crew members where multiple dishes fell to the floor. It was nice to witness how multiple team members, including the manager, immediately converged to help with the clean up. We felt welcomed, enjoyed our meal and will certainly return.

    There is a nice variety to the menu items without being overwhelming. The food was delicious. We had the meatball appetizer and shared a pizza. We also shared a cannoli for dessert. We made a reservation and did not have to wait to be seated. The restaurant is clean and well maintained... including the restrooms. It was a little chilly. Our server was attentive without being intrusive. I would highly recommend!

    The waitress was awful, from not making eye contact to checking to see if we needed another drink or ask how our food was. Our margarita was the worst we’ve ever had. One tiny meatball in my soup and the tenderloin was not tender at all. Very disappointing.

    Even with a reservation of 6pm for a six top. From the time I was brought to my table through the whole service I felt extremely rushed by the staff. A member of our party even after eating had to tell the waitress we were going to sit and talk as they decided to order more beverages.

    What a great experience! We had not been to Travlo yet but had their greens at a party. The food was delicious!!! I ordered the Oso Buco, and it melted in my mouth. The ladies had some "signature cocktails" which they enjoyed, and both ordered the Stuffed Hats - which were rich and creamy and awesome! Free desert for our friend who was celebrating a birthday! We will definitely be back!!!

    I usually like the food but my meal was overcooked. I had the veal and I could hardly cut it. The cheese on top was onqgealed. My friend’s pork dish was very good.

    Consistently good. Got Greens and calamari apps. Greens were great, calamari delish- large tentacles which I particularly like. Our party got a mix of entrees from steak to pasta, eggplant parm and pizza. Everything was good. Steak was ordered medium and came out M/W to well done, however it was still good. Chix riggies a bit oily but chix was tender. Service was good. Ambiance good. We had a larger group so we got semi private room - a little chilly but otherwise worked great.

    Classic old world Utica Italian establishment. Multi-generational family owned restaurant that we’ve been enjoying for 40+ years and will always be a staple. Can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, but local favorites are the Chicken or Steak Morelle, Chicken Salvatore, Chicken Riggies, and the Greens Morelle (a must)!

    I organized a large family lunch for Christmas and Tavolo's was very accommodating. Our party included young children and seniors and the staff sat us in a semi-private room which was quieter and suited us perfectly. Our server was personable and professional and enhanced our visit perfectly. The food was very good and came out hot and quickly. Everyone found something they wanted on the menu. We'd definitely go back.

    Food was excellent quality, though a bit pricey. Service was exceptional! Atmosphere was noisey. If you happen to sit next to folks who are loud you will be shouting at a greater volume to be heard at your table. Don't get me wrong, it is a fun and festive environment, which I like. Though, I still think you should be able to converse with your friends across the table. Somthing about the acoustics in the dining room is a bit wonky.

    Made a reservation to avoid having to wait an ungodly amount of time to be seated and served, still had to wait and ungodly amount of time and ended up ultimately leaving because we had waited so long. We were running a bit late but called well before our reservation time - which they have a 15 minute grace period for and we arrived within that window. We watched countless parties get seated before us that arrived after us. Parties of 2 all the way to parties of 8+ . Unprofessional, unkempt, i don’t want everyone’s breathe and stench in my face walking in and out because there’s no room for people waiting to be seated. will not be trying this a second time. Horrible experience for a “highly rated restaurant”.

    The food is always good as is the service, however, it is way too noisy to even carry on a decent conversation at your own table. It has always been like this, and I don’t know why they don’t do anything about it. They have speakers for the music, however, you can’t even hear the music over everyone talking!
