Food was delicious however, there was an error in food running and was not rectified appropriately. Took my wife out for her birthday, she loves Italian and thought we would try someplace new. The runner brought the incorrect dish for my wife, it belonged to the table next to us. My dish was correct so they left mine and took the incorrect one back to the kitchen. I ended up finishing my entire meal before they brought her the correct dish (didn’t want my food getting cold). They did offer a free cocktail and dessert however, the manager did not seem apologetic and she made us feel almost rushed to leave the restaurant. Place has potential as it has great food although the service has us questioning whether we will give it a second chance.

Excellent food and service. We tried the Salmon and Spaghetti and Meatballs. It was a little loud because of a Homecoming group, but we were happy they were having a great night.

Food was very good. However, the cocktails need some attention. Our waitress was the one making the drinks but I don't think that is the reason since every time I come here the cocktails are not very good. They are heavy in the juice (non-alcoholic) components. You can tell hardly any alcohol (i.e vodka) is put in the drink. It is like drinking a juice box. I will still return, but do not recommend the cocktails.

I ordered the special that was advertised as saffron rice. I received mashed potatoes instead. We also ordered the bombolini dessert and found the donuts were very greasy. Sitting on the patio was wonderful and the indoor dining atmosphere is beautiful! Our server was great!

Overall absolutely amazing! This was my first visit here. Great quality and great portions! As a Chef I’m delighted to see such a great restaurant in such a small part of Ohio with such great food and service. The restaurant itself is stunning! Only 2 cons I would give would have been for the desserts and flatbreads. I tried all 4 desserts currently being offered on the menu (Sept 2021) and two of the three flatbreads and they fell well below my expectations and didn’t seem to match the same quality as the main menu items. Again OVERALL a great experience considering the part of Ohio the restaurant is in and the style and quality of the food they are producing! I will definitely revisit Tavolo in the near future!

Nice place to eat, beautiful atmosphere. Service was excellent. Only issue we had was paying $4 for a side salad that was literally just a bowl of leafy greens some of which had brown stems and no other accoutrements with the greens. Nice selection of wines and beers. Would recommend the restaurant to friends.

We have been to Tavolo a few times now, and we have left happy every time! The food is delicious, and there is a good selection of beer and wine! I LOVE that they offer patio seating, and the staff is over the top friendly and helpful! We recommend Tavolo to all of our friends!

We drove 45 minutes to dine for our 20th anniversary on Wednesday. We had reservations and were happy to be there! Shortly after our arrival, a group of twelve came in to dine for what appeared to be a birthday celebration. It was obvious to us that they were locals with $$$. I definitely could tell they were treated differently than us. We waited 30 minutes for our celebratory Prosecco (that’s an estimate, check your cameras because I’m curious 🤗), while it seemed like they never waited or wanted for anything, ever. The restaurant was practically empty. I guess they were more important than us.

I’ve dined twice before for brunch and had a great experience.

We had a nice night enjoying our wine and the starters were delicuous! I absolutely love the atmosphere, but we won’t be back.

Our experience this evening was not as great as we have had before. The seasoning, saucing and overall prep was not the same as we've experienced in the past. Still good, just not great. Perhaps there was a different cook?

Excellent evening! This was a business dinner and everyone enjoyed the food, service and ambiance. One suggestion would be to eliminate the long table that requires customers to slide around on a corner bench and then down to get to their seat. Not an easy thing to do for the over "60" crowd!
Otherwise...a very good evening! Will definitely go back!

The food was absolutely amazing, it’s nice to know there’s an upscale Italian restaurant so close! I felt like the music wasn’t the most cohesive with the overall atmosphere (Ariana grande was an interesting choice lol) but other than that everything was wonderful! Will definitely be coming back

Met friends for dinner. This was their first visit and our third visit. Reviewing the menu they made the comment that it was difficult to make a choice from among so many wonderful offerings. The only recourse is many more return visits in the future. 👍🏻
