Excellent food at reasonable pricing. Very friendly and helpful staff. The only downside to the experience was the overall noise level, at points we had to put our conversation on pause til other guest quieted down, but we did go at 9PM. Very likely to go again for a date night or special occasion.

The food taste and quality DOES MATCH THE SERVICE!!!!!! Like you are in two different places. We drive three hours to eat there, seriously, and the bartender makes you feel like he is doing you a favor!!! The servers are sub par, if your service was as quality as your food, you would have a line out the door EVERYNIGHT!!!! Also the cute hightop by the window floor, has a huge hole in it it. The customers before us and my self with heels on, tripped in that hole. Not good. it wouldn't take take much to fill that in, just saying, really dangerous. I couldn't get away with that in my business. But your food is great!

This place was fantastic! Food and drinks were incredible, all of the staff was friendly and our server was the very best. Attentive, personable, knowledgeable and funny, and always around but never hovering. The GM came tableside and introduced himself as well. He clearly has a passion for the restaurant and knows how to engage his customers. Perhaps most importantly, the food was delicious - authentic and homemade and you could taste it. Highly recommend this place for business dinner, date, or just an evening out.

Food and service were amazing! They overbooked and we had to wait over 30 minutes even though we had a reservation but the manager was very apologetic. The wait was worth it though for how wonderful the dishes and service were! Would recommended and will visit again!

We ordered the Crispy Chicken Marsala and the Linguini Carbonara, and both were excellent. We set upstairs and loved the setting and the service was top notch. We ended our meal with their homemade Pistachio Ice Cream, which did not disappoint.

We went on date for Valentine’s Day and had the Valentine’s Day menu. It was a five course meal with wine pairings. Everything was unbelievably full of favor and cooked perfectly. All of the wine pairings complimented each dish perfectly. After dinner we were even gifted with chocolates.

Really enjoy Tavolo. Great food and great atmosphere. We went on Valentine’s Day and had a great meal. The kitchen was running behind, which was irritating our server and was very noticeable in her service as she became less attentive. Other than that everything else was great.

The food was outstanding. The only thing better was the service. Our waitress was very friendly and prompt. She came by multiple times to make sure that everything was in order and that we were having a good time. The restaurant had a nice, intimate ambience that was perfect for our anniversary dinner. We would highly recommend anyone in Tulsa try Tavolo.
