Amazing food! Diverse menu with ample portion size. Unique ambiance. Great ingredients and flavors. We were also impressed by the spirit selections at the bar. We enjoyed some pre-dinner drinks and loved the low key vibe. We found the bartender, servers, and hostesses very friendly and accommodating. This restaurant outdoes all of the tourist trap restaurants on Marco Island. We tried some of the other places on the island during our vacation that are highly overrated. La Tavola is miles above the rest. I highly recommend this local treasure.

Worst dinner on the island! They charged you a 20% service charge for a party of 2. Done waste your money!

Had the scallops and pork belly or bacon steak. 2 scallops were delicious with Brussel sprouts. Pork belly was mostly fat and I could not eat it. Spent $29 I believe for this entree. The wine was delicious #603 Pinot Noir California. My wife had a lobster roll and onion rings that were great. They had live singing and dancing which was terrific and which we very much enjoyed.

We were in Marco Island for the first time celebrating our honeymoon. Staying at the JW Marriott. We found out quickly that Uber is hard to come by here.

Luckily there is an area close by with some great restaurants. La Tavola was outstanding ! The drinks were great. I had wine and my wife had a couple vodka mixers.
The food was incredible and they had a live band that we thought was a recording at first because they sounded so good.

Very reasonable for the quality and atmosphere. This is on our list of restaurants we will be back to when we come back to Marco. It’s a 10 min walk from the JW. Very easy.

Our second time here because it was awesome the first time when I had the scallops with pork belly. This time I had the seafood linguine because I was told the pasta was homemade, but I didn't think it had thr flare of homemade pasta. My friend had the bolognese, but it came out with Penne pasta which didn't look fresh homemade either. The beef carpaccio and duck wings were good. Service was good and I love the cozy ambiance. I would give it a try again.

Annie was the waitperson from Hell. No warmth, extended no effort to make sure that we were doing well or pleased. She'd race by mouthing something, but never stopping to listen or reply. Worst dining experience in years, compared to the excellent experiences we had with two very nearby restaurants the night before and the night after: better food, interested wait staff and Managers, good food, and so on. The only person that we interacted with at who really tried to please was her busboy - good attitude, attentive, and aimed to please. We even gave him a cash tip, because I doubt that she would share anything with him. We'd rather go to a Hardee's (also terrible) for an enjoyable meal: at least we'd expect service to be minimalist. Our biggest waste

Food was delicious. Everything we ordered was sooo good. Waitress was efficient and very friendly. We ate outside because it was a beautiful evening. There was just one issue when our food came so did the bugs. Very annoying but not the restaurant’s fault. But all ‘n all a great experience.

The filet mignon was excellent, hot, moist, perfect temperature and very tasty I wish though the waitress would wear a mask. I know many people don’t believe in the pandemic but wearing a mask it’s a sign of respect and respect is never political value.

Found this place on Open Table. Was our last night in Marco Island and wanted something within walking distance of the hotel. La Tavola did not disappoint. The quality and quantity of the dishes we had was excellent. Very diverse menu as well. Will go back when in the area.

I would not recommend the restaurant to anyone. I had eaten at this place many times before the shut down due to the virus, but now I found the salmon dinner was dry and served with rice and few vegetables. My guest had the Panko covered fish and she thought it was not good.!! I was embarrassed as I thought I was choosing a good restaurant. Not so!

Food here is uniformly very good. They have added an extensive burger and sandwich section to their menu to offer a quality inexpensive alternative in-house or take out offering. Extremely good move as the kitchens’s output is consistently very good and innovative. While I prefer their dinner selections as they represent a high value and varied selection to their dining-in patrons. For us the consistency there is in the outstanding service we invariably receive from Doobie their best server. She is always pleasant, efficient and very professional. A winning combination for their customers. She’s truly the best!

Really wanted to like this place. The description screams bar- but it seems to try too hard to be upscale. The menu is both, offering burgers and fries to NY strips and Fra Diavlo. I think this restaurant would be served best by licking either bar or fine dining and getting on with its existence as it’s mediocre at best in both. It had a live musician in the bar area.

Appetizers were great but the main course was disappointing. The fish special tasted as of the fish was old and they were looking to get rid of it. The pork chop was salty.

The baked Brie and chicken meatballs were great.

If you are concerned about coronavirus do not go. Not following cdc recommendation for mask or social distancing.

Have been coming to Marco for several years but have never heard much about La Tavola before. Decided to go to somewhere new and chose La Tavola. Wow was it great. The stuffed mushrooms were superb along with the grouper dish I had. Our server was really excellent and very personable. Told us a bit about her home country of Macedonia. My wife had a really excellent chocolate tort that was dairy and gluten free! Will most definitely be back

We shared the huge fried green tomatoes appetizer that was topped with 3 tender asparagus, lots of real bacon crumbles & a perfectly cooked fried egg. The flavorful Osso Bucco melted in my mouth & there was plenty to have for the next day's lunch. Our server was attentive & made sure that we all had a wonderful dining experience.

The menu is great. We had a "special" that evening, Pork Osso Bocco. The portion was large, the pork so tender and very flavorful! A must try if they still have it.

The staff is friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Love this restaurant!

The service here is always great. They are able to keep the same servers year after years which tells you how good the work conditions must be. The server all wore masks which made us feel safe and we were not rushed to hurry up and leave. It was a very nice get together with friends to celebrate bdays.

Our first outing after the reopening of restaurants on Marco. We had a great experience. Met the owner, who was personable. I had the hogfiish snapper, which was delicious, and the pound cake dessert was terrific also. A singer showed up and entertained the room wonderfully. All in all, a fun and relaxed evening out.
