Food always delicious! Service tonight seem to be a little rushed! The server may have had a lot of parties to deal with.
I understand how crazy it can get dealings with the public my husband on the other hand not so understanding. He looks forward to going out on the weekend and not feel uncomfortable while eating.. Perhaps it was just a off evening for all of us. I’m sure we’ll dine there again. Thanks!
I think we just got a bad server, but took over 20 minutes before we were even asked what we would like to drink... "2 filet mignons" im pretty convinced were actually burger king patties. no joke. The food is pretty good but nothing to brag about. Good pasta and appetizers. I pretty much had to do the servers' jobs and let them know what we needed (olive oil, small serving plates for bread.) Like c'mon.
Great restaurant and excellent service. Will go back!!
It was our first time at Tavolo and had a party of 6 for dinner before a show. Everyone at the table was very happy with their meal. Very flavorful and nice size portions. Cocktails were also very good. Our waitress was attentive and knowledgeable. Will definitely be back.
Our favorite restaurant, great food great service, love Kasha, Victor and Sherri. They are the best, make you feel at home. Great bar scene.
Nice selection of wines paired with good food. Arrived early for a 6:30 reservation and they weren't quite ready to wait on the table. In the end, it was a good meal with pleasant service. Not sure they will make it with all the other restaurants on Atwells, but I hope so.
Met girlfriends for a long overdue get together. Two of us arrived early and we were seated right away and ordered wine. Our other friend arrived and enjoyed a glass of wine and then we ordered our meals. We all had the specials of the day which were delicious. We were never rushed and spent a long time talking and enjoying the evening together.
This is now our favorite restaurant, the food is excellent, the ambiance is very nice, but the service and people are wonderful. They always treat you like family, my kind of people.
Service was awesome! Food was as well for the most part other than the tenderloins that came with the special I ordered (they looked and tasted like Mickey D's patties lol.) I would stick to the awesome pasta! :) Would definitely recommend!
Excellent -go to Tavolo often -great menu - service always excellent.
This has become our favorite restaurant, they all treat you like family and pay attention to detail. the food was excellent. The service with Kasha and Victor was also excellent and they are very informative to the meals and the notable wine list, one of the best i have seen. Can't wait to go back. The owner Sherri always comes over to make sure that our dining experience is the best.
Thank you Tavolo's Wine Bar
Calamari app and colossal scallops over risotto were both excellent. Live music was lovely and not so loud as to be intrusive. Nice alternative to some of the more traditional Italian restaurants on Atwater.
Nice interior, nice bar. Lots of wine selections. Food was just OK, not great. Seemed to be a lot of upselling at both the bar and by our waiter, who was pleasant and timely with the service, but just a bit too obviously pushing us to order more apps and larger pours of wine. Probably won't go back. Don't mind the food prices if you get really good food, but that was not the case.
Food was delicious. Service was awesome. Will definitely return.
I recommended very highly on line. I go by the name South Coast Connoisseur
We have been here several times. The menu options are fantastic, and the food is really good. Service has been excellent every time. Wine list is amazing and very fairly priced, with an incredible list by the glass. Only constructive feedback is they had music playing and a tv on with sound at the same time. So we had to listen to the tv compete with the music. One or the other would have been fine.
Great restaurant with a great atmosphere. Friendly and professional staff. Excellent tasting food (Calamari was great!). Will definitely be back!
Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. Our muscles appetizer had a very off taste. My husbands fruiti de Mari had crunchy pasta and most of the fish were the same muscles. We did mention this. My fish special was above average and dessert was good. Overall however it was disappointing.
Great meal, good service. Had a Groupon too! Also on Wed they do 1/2 off bottles of wine which is a great deal. Will be back.
Service was outstanding!! Food I expected to be a little more creative but it was comfortable. The ambiance was very moderate neither quiet or noisy but one could carry on a conversation without yelling. I would recommend this restaurant to out of towners....
Food was excellent and so was the service ! We will definitely be back !!
The young man (host) was busy chatting with his "old Friend" and did not even acknowledge us. i did not know he worked there. and as fate has it he was our waiter. Not a very good one at that.
he was constantly back chatting at the bar. We had to ask several times for him to clear empty plates when dinner came.
We ordered the Risotto balls as an app, they come 3 to an order and there were 4 of us so my friend asked for a 4th, he sent an entire second order. With our dinner. He also did not space out that appetizers and dinner.
After dinner i asked for Anisette in a Snifter and a coffee. he brought Sambuca in a rocks glass. i questioned him and he said its Sambuca, we don't have in a Snifter and a coffee. he brought Sambuca in a rocks glass. i questioned him and he said in a Snifter and a coffee. he brought Sambuca in a rocks glass. i questioned him and he said Anisette.
Bartender was great, he transferred our drinks over to the dinner tab, al lot of places wont do that.
The food was awesome, Risotto Balls were outstanding, Calamari was great.
the Pulled beef shank was amazing. Chicken Parm was awesome.
I have been to the Smithfield location and liked it The providence location was the same quality . A lot of places to choose from on Federal Hill but I would definitely return
All good . The food was great BUT could have been served hotter in temp
Great place good food nice atmosphere
Enjoyed the meal and the wine!
We've eaten in many places in Providence. Tavolo was excellent from standpoint of food, ambiance, wines and service. Great selection of wines both by glass and bottle. Will definitely try again. Wed night is half price wine bottles if you are local.
Food was great. Bartender Chris was very nice but unable to keep up with the crowd. He did the best he could but definitely needed help. Waited for silverware to eat our dinner which then sat for a few minutes. Also started at a table and no one came to serve us. Went to the ladies room came back then my date went and came back and still nothing which was why we ended up at the bar. Also tables are really close together. Felt like we were with the people next to us. I would recommend calling and asking for a window table.
Sloooooow service, several inaccurate orders and so-so food and drinks. A waste of $200. Will not go back. Too many other great places in Providence.
Had dinner at Tavolo to take advantage of Providence restaurant week menu and their Wednesday night half off wine bottles under $75. Short ribs were falling off the bone, and spinach ravioli were excellent. Enjoyed one of our favorite wines for less than we could normally purchase it for. Dining mid week also made for a quieter, more relaxed atmosphere. Excellent meal and service!!
Excellent dining experience all around! Will definitely be returning
Service was slow when we first got there but the waiter apologized and explained we had arrived between the lunch and dinner switch over. The service for the rest of the evening was very good. We decided to order from the restaurant week menu and were all very pleased. The food was excellent and very affordable. The salads were fresh and very tasty. The shortribs fell right off the bone and melted in your mouth. The cheesecake and tiramisu were wonderful. We'll definitely be back.
All 4 of us enjoyed our restaurant week lunch! First visit but will come back.
Food was great but service was very slow.
This visit was a bit of a disappointment for us. Service is average and our food was not as good as we expect. The friendliest person there is the valet, who provided very good service. I am not sure we will return.
Everything was great just didn't have the first two bottles of wine I requested. Otherwise Fantastic and would recommend
Great evening dinner. The staff is very friendly. Great atmosphere. Beautiful setting
Food was great and ambience too. Overall a bit loud since there was live entertainment and was NYE. Service was slow understandably because it was a holiday but the restaurant was packed and there were very few waiters on.
Lovely atmosphere for impromptu New Years Eve dinner with good menu, personable waiter and excellent 3 piece band with a Linda Rondstat type singer.
fabulous food, cozy ambience with live music. food was delicious and plenty of it!
