Waited 45 minutes for order. Not the waitresses fault. My sister in law got sick . Very disappointing since it was not busy at all

We didn’t love sitting in the “new room” because it felt like a cafeteria but the food and service were great as usual!

Service was fast and friendly. Entree and Dessert portions were a little on the small side though.

We had a reservation at noon. Certainly lots of room to make you feel safe in this age of COVID. I stopped by the ladies to wash my hands... heat in one of the hand dryers wasn’t working, one of the toilets hadn’t been flushed by the previous user, tissue box was empty. Really?!
The waitress was great and the space they seated us was private which was nice.
Servings were very generous but none of the food was exceptional. The pizza was pale and limp probably because the pizza oven wasn’t up to temperature at noon. The homemade hats were doughy and the the dish too oily.
Overall, the restaurant was a real disappointment.

This was an outstanding meal and terrific restaurant. Our server was fantastic and went out of her way to make our meal special, as it was a celebratory birthday dinner for my son. We will definitely be back!

The food was excellent. Our waitress was helpful, knowledgeable and efficient. We were put in the banquet room and it was a little sterile but the large windows and low noise level made it very nice. All in all we had a great night. The wine was perfect.

My gal pal and I drove there from Albany. She was getting her first Covid 19 Vaccine Dose at the nearby SUNY College and I went along for the ride. Her appointment was at 5:00 so we thought it would be fun to go to dinner afterwards. We are both fans of Utica greens and we’d heard that this was the home of the Original so naturally that was the first item we ordered. We weren’t disappointed! Indeed they were the best I’d ever head and gal pal agreed. We also got the rustic cheese bread and split an order of Chicken Riggies. Everything was perfect. There were so many other items on the menu that sounded and looked delicious but we just couldn’t order everything. Fortunately my friend has her second dose in three weeks so we plan to go back and order some of the other items that looked so great. The service was great and the ambiance was lively. I can’t wait to go there again in two weeks. I’m pretty sure I’m going to try the pizza next time. It really looked delicious. And of course another order of the Morelle Greens!

The food was OUTSTANDING!! Presentaion, quality, amount, price- it was perfect. Best old fashioned cocktail I’ve had in a long time. And the GREENS!! Wow!! We drove from Syracuse just to eat there.
Sadly, we got there at 8:45p and our server we clearly over it. She was curt and a little miserable. We felt pressured and rushed. You should get the same experience whether its 5:45p or 8:45p. We would definitely come back, but only for the food. Not the service.

The pasta purses are amazing. Fantastic sauce, and perfect portion. My husband got the steak morelle and he said it was amazing - 2 pieces of meat and the tastiest stuffed mushroom!! Arancini balls were amazing too! Overall amazing... great service and atmosphere. Server was attentive and managers were involved and invested in our experience.

The food & service were excellent! However they were moving tables around (several times!), which sounded like nails on a chalkboard. When we inquired about it, we were told “ yeah I know, we are almost done “
I would definitely go back. But maybe the rearranging should be after hours?

Multi-tattooed waitress was awful. Terrible demeanor, forgot to bring us a drink that we ordered and was unapologetic about not bringing it, and acted like it was a chore for her to remove it from the bill.By far the worst experience that we have had there, there are plenty of other local restaurants that will appreciate getting my business in the future.

Went on Valentine's Day with reservations made. Was seated immediately but put at a table that in front of their outside door in the front corner. The cold draft coming from outside was immediately noticed so jackets stayed on while eating. Doesn't seem like this part of the restaurant should be used in the winter. It didn't even feel like I was eating in the restaurant.

I'm also not sure what covid precautions are, but flipping table cloths after a party leaves doesn't seem sanitary.

Food was great, just a cold and lonely atmosphere.

The food was truly bad. The burrata ravioli sounded so good but burrata never got close to this dish! Salad was cold out of the refrigerator so had no taste.

Hi Gary, We are sorry to hear you were not happy with your dinner. Our ravioli is filled with burrata cheese which is a rich and creamy cheese. Not sure what you meant by it never made it to the dish but we'd like to discuss it with you. All of our dishes are made to order including our salads. The ingredients are all kept in a refrigerated unit so they stay fresh and crisp for our salads. Please email us your contact information at info@tavolo315

I went on a first date. I had been before, he had not. The service was fantastic. Our server had a great personality, that’s important to me! We sat and drank an entire bottle of Cab, so we were there for a while! Everything was great as always.

It was our first time and we enjoyed our experience very much! We LOVED the arancini...so cheesy and that sauce was on point! Our entrees were delicious as well, just the portions were huge! That would be my only complaint. Thank you for a great evening and we will definitely be back!

The atmosphere right when you walk in is amazing. Very Friday and welcoming staff, our server was amazing! The food was great, it was nice to have more of a dining room feel on one side, and the other side was like an up-scale sports bar. Great for everyone of all ages and any event. The staff was hard working and I will definitely be back!
