Interesting cuisine and outstanding service. The bar was nice and the restaurant itself was comfortable and appealing.
Ambience and food are very good. Service is not so good. It took a long time to get drinks. It took longer to get the food. In fact, they missed half the food order. However, they were very nice and did not charge us for the missed food when it eventually came.
What a welcome addition to downtown Minneapolis dining options—delicious food and great service!
I mentioned that the reservation was for celebrating my birthday but no one acknowledged that, so I was a bit disappointed. My food was good (farfalle al chinghiale), but my husband’s vegetarian pizza was too oily and he didn’t like that. Otherwise, we were happy with our choice, and I would recommend it. Thank you.
Food was outstanding - including the Burrata, Wild Boar Stew, Tonino's Traditional Pizza and the Fettuccine Carbonara. Really a fair value for the quality as well. The ambiance was very nice - a pleasant updated space.
The only issue was the slow service. Really understaffed for the wait staff; but the food order once taken didn't take too long to get filled. Just no ability for the waiter to be attentive. Not his fault as he had too many tables.
I'll be back as the food was great and hopefully the service will get straightened out.
Wonderful food and experience all around! Went on Sunday night, then just had to go back following evening! Highly recommend this restaurant for all...
Unique selection of Italian entrees. Served promptly. Hot and flavorful. Good value. Good cocktail and wine list.
Homemade desserts and warm bread basket. Stopped by after the bb game to celebrate a birthday. Friendly service.
Amazing wood fired pizza.. great pre-game meal!
We had a wonderful meal. Our only issue was the timing of the service. Our server was friendly and helpful. However the service was extremely slow. Two got their appetizers and after 10 minutes we had to search out someone to have the other three delivered.
The food was great but the service was so slow!
Loved the artichoke appetizer! Great place to dine with others and still be able to talk!
4/03/2019. Very good experience in all areasz.
The food was very good, including the cocktails. The servers needs to learn more about the drink menu, the food menu to address client's questions or to make suggestions.
Great service. Marinara sauce was very tasty but the thick spaghetti noodles were a little too al dente.
Enjoyed the meal and ambience at Travola. Easy to park. Friendly service but not very versed in the menu. Did provide great option to sample wines before making a choice. Really appreciated that. Appetizers were great. Had the salmon. Nothing special. Friend had the chicken and that was good. Will definitely go back and try the pasta.
Great new, undiscovered restaurant. Food was excellent.
Service was excellent and efficient. Food was delicious - the freshly made ravioli is exceptional. Our group of 6 was in and out in around an hour. Overall a great lunch.
Every bite was memorable. The staff was very kind. The service was attentive and excellent. A laid back fine dining experience. Delicious!
Delicious food. We went pre-orchestra so not busy with a 6:00 pm reservation. Would return
Friendly service, very accommodating (we have a very high maintenance member of our group), beautiful setting. Will be back often.
The establishment was not hopping at 700pm and the service was a bit slow. My cocktail ice was melted before the server came back to the table. The food was fine, noise wasn’t an issue and I have hearing issues.
Food was outstanding. Just be aware going in that it will be a slow paced experience.
GORGEOUS space! Loved the lighting and appointments at the table. We were there on a non-event day downtown so it was quiet and we had great service for brunch! Food and drinks were special and a good price. Totally coming back for dinner!
Had a great experience at Tavola! Food was very good, and I loved the pasta dishes. Would highly recommend the Fettuccini Carbonara and Pici Aglione! Our server, Hew, was also fabulous...incredibly polite and checked in on us just the right amount of time. Great date spot.
Beautiful dining room. Friendly staff. I had the tomato soup which was delicious but had so much cheese in top that it was hard to eat without stringy cheese dripping everywhere. I had their verso. Of spaghetti but the noodles were thick and chewed like gnocchi. The Bowl it was served in made it hard to eat too. They served bread but put olive oil on the only small plates on the table so nowhere to set the bread. So again, just made it clunky. I wanted to like it more since I live downtown, but I doubt we’ll return.
First time here, and it was a huge disappointment. The restaurant was not very busy, yet our server was not very attentive. He was horrible at explaining questions about the menu. We ordered the Burrata appetizer and it was not Burrata. Burrata has a creamy inside texture, this was just a hunk of Mozzarella on a plate with very minimal accompaniments. We ordered a pasta dish that the server explained as spaghetti, but the noodle was very thick and chewy, hard to eat. Meatballs were per piece and were average, not outstanding. I don't think we will be back to this restaurant.
Cute place but the food was disappointing. The pizza looked like it would be delicious but the crust was tasteless.
Great ambiance! Quiet enough to have an intimate conversation. Service was somewhat inattentive. We didn’t want to be rushed yet our server seemed to disappear for long stretches (leave a carafe of water) so we waited to order and had to ask for the check. Would like to say it was busy but it wasn’t. If there weren’t so many great places to go in Minneapolis we’d try it again.
It’s a new establishment so one expects some things to not be perfect. Staff were pleasant although service initially was slower than expected. Great ambience- will revisit after time passes.
It’s a great restaurant, yummy food but we were disappointed that we couldn’t get a specific appetizer because they were saving up an ingredient from it for a main course.
Food was good, except the boar pasta which was dried out and had no flavor. We told our server and thought she should have taken it off the bill since we told her about it and barely touched it. Atmosphere is ok. Food was a good value.
Table saervice by Hugh was outstanding! Unfortunately the bartenders were a salty. Neither one of them appeared to even remotely like their job.
The food wasn’t that great. The only thing that was great was our service. Our waitress was very personable and sweet!
Service and food was great. Focasia bread was definitely worth it. Not a huge fan of long tables away from the person your eating with but a solid set up.
We came for their Valentine's Day dinner special: two glasses of prosecco, focaccia, antipasti, tiramisu, and your choice of salad and entree. This was our second time there since going on opening night, and it was great. There was only one waiter for our fairly busy quarter of the restaurant, especially with other couples there for the three-course special, but he was so attentive and did an excellent job making us feel like we were his only table. Pasta is made fresh in-house and you can taste the difference. Highly recommend the tiramisu. The atmosphere is intimate while still feeling modern and approachable. We'll definitely be back again!
The food was good but the service seemed a bit lacking. I feel like there was some confusion over what tables had which waiter helping them.
Food was good, portions a little larger than expected. Good cocktails. The wild boar pepperdelle was not as good as I was hoping, pasta noodles in it were too large to even really eat. Artichoke appetizer was great.
Great atmosphere. Marvelous food. Unique menu selections (The artichoke appetizer is to die for. Order the large size portion!!) Service was outstanding, treating us like regulars. We liked it so much we had breakfast there the next morning. My review would be the same. (Don't discover it!! Then they will always have a table for me.)
Perfect pre-valentines dinner. I do love this place. Service was great, and food was amazing!
