The Restaurant is very new, clean, and well designed in an old bank. The staff is excellent. They are very attentive and quick. The food is great. Modern Italian setting with classic food offerings.

Price is a bit high.

Calamari was very good, ordered the Lasagna which is very rich and was good. However it was not heated all the way through, waitress took care of that right away. Service was good over all. But no Iced Tea🙁, I got over it.

Food was good but pricey. It wasn’t WOW! Kuerig coffee, not fresh. Disappointed in tiramisu. Didn’t seem traditional. Water spilled on me.

Very nice ambiance and service. Dinner is all a’la carte, but a nice menu. Outside we felt rushed as we were not ordering drinks and the server wanted to turn our table quickly.

All in all a great environment and a nice patio, with good food and service. Nice job!!

Food was very good. Would have been nice to have bread served with the dinner and to receive a small side salad with the meal. Would eat here again.

Food could use more flavor. I attended the wine tasting and was very disappointed in the wine. I’ve also had the salmon, and the ravioli very minimal taste for being an Italian restaurant. I’ve now been 5 times and each time I hope the food will get better but no luck yet.

Fabulous meal. Waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. Medium filet was actually medium. Clean, minimalist classy decor & spaced-out tables & so you didn’t feel like you were dining with the table next door. Cocktails were good. Seemed averaged priced for a nicer restaurant. Plenty of leftovers. We ate inside but outside dining area was adorable. I hate to say unexpected for the area, but unexpected. We’ll definitely be back. ... our new go-to Italian for the greater Dayton area.

Unfortunately, I was disappointed with both the main course "Gemelli" (Shrimp Scampi) and appetizer (Ahi Tuna). The Scampi had excellent shrimp, but there was no sauce to accompany the pasta, so it was very bland with little flavor.
The Tuna Carpaccio (Ahi Tuna) did not appear to have been flattened nor had it been seared on any surface and in my opinion did not look very appetizing .
Additionally....this Italian restaurant was unusual in that it did not provide complementary fresh bread with olive oil and/or balsamic vinegar at your table as you decide on your entree. They offer it for purchase only...which was disappointing considering the total bill for four people was over $250.00

47th wedding anniversary. Ate outside. Area is nice but the traffic on Ohio detracts from the experience.

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. Menu doesn't have much variety. No free refills on coffee however I wasn't told that until I had 2 refills, $12 for coffee is ridiculous. Super loud on the patio, not the restaurant's fault, there was a car show in the area. Seeing servers sitting at tables while scrolling on their cell phones was tacky for a restaurant like this. Service was very slow however our server was very nice and apologetic. I ordered a Shrimp Pasta meal and it was terrible. I sent it back and ordered an appetizer instead. In my opinion, a manager should have came to our table when I sent my food back but we never seen a Manager. Beautiful restaurant but it's not for us. We will not go back.

We enjoyed eating outside. The only problem there was a car show in town riding up and down the street with their mufflers making a lot of noise, and the motorcycles were very noisy. Could be very nice on an ordinary Saturday night. We ate late so they were out of most things we wanted to order. Almost at the end the waitress took her mask off which we didn't appreciate. All in all the place has the potential to be a very nice restaurant.

My dining experience was amazing! The food was delicious, the server was fun and polite. I enjoyed every minute of my dinner. My husband had the walleye and said it was the best fish he ever has had. I had the briased short rib ravioli and it was amazing. I cant wait to go back.

Lasagna was very good, fettuccine alfredo was ok somewhat bland. Garlic bread we enjoyed very much. For the entree price a salad and bread would have been appropriate. I would like to see a larger portion size for the entree.

Excellent service, food was great, comfortable socially distanced dining area. Nice music. We will be back.
Only one complaint, wine glass arrived with the prior diner’s lipstick on it... oops- not what we want to see during a pandemic.

Overall experience was very good. Service, atmosphere, cleanliness all outstanding. My only comments is work needs done to balance the plates and bring more value to the meal. So to try to explain; I ordered the chicken parm and honestly the best I've ever eaten. The plate had two huge pieces of lightly breaded perfect chicken in a delicious red sauce; that's the meal. I ordered a salad for another $6 and also had to order a side of spaghetti for I think $4 or $5. I think if for the same price you could cut down to one breast and include salad, pasta, and bread you would actually have lower food costs with a much improved perceived value to the customer. My wife never likes paying extra for a side salad but loved the meal. would recommend.

Tavolo is THE place to dine in Sidney.

High quality, fresh ingredients, and pasta is made in house daily. Truly authentic Italian food, fresh cocktails and a trendy and modern atmosphere. The prices felt on point for the quality of food and service. Will be back again and again.

Congratulations to the owners, Sidney desperately needed Tavolo!
