Tavolo Wine Bar & Tuscan Grille
Tuesday - Thursday: 4:00pm - 9:00pm;
Friday - Saturday 11:30am - 10:00pm
We had dinner with another couple and found the food choices to be really good. Being Italian, we liked that the choices were traditional Italian and not nouveau Italain that so many restaurants have.
We would definitely go back.
Food was good. Pumpkin martini was delicious. Good, timely service.
Good food and drinks, reasonably priced( not cheap but good value). Excellent service. Friendly staff. Complimentary valet parking (yes, you should tip).
We dine here often. Food is great, service is friendly, and prices are 3/4 of other restaurants on the hill.
Nothing special to say, but could not figure out how they ran out of Tito's. That's pretty weak. Waiter was great and engaging.
Food was delicious. My boyfriend had filet mignon and it was tender. I had the pan roasted startler chicken. Very juicy, not dry and seasoning was perfect. The service was very good. Overall a nice dinner. Definitely good back again and highly recommended!
We have always enjoyed this restaurant but this time it was just not up to par. Sat at a very nice window table. Then we were ignored for about 15 minites. When the server did come to greet us he blew it off saying oh I didn't see you for a second. We ordered drinks. My wine was gone by and waiter didn't believe us he finally did take it back to the bar and they agreed the bottle was gone so opened a new one. Better. Risotto balls were delicious. But my short ribs were on the dry side and mashed potatoes and veg were cold and carrots too hard to eat. Wifes salad was average and 10 dollars for three small shrimp barely warm. We were told that the add on was jumbo shrimp! Just an off night.
There are better restaurants nearby that are similarly priced. Our waiter was not terribly professional, and he pressured us several times to order an appetizer, forcing us to feel like we needed to explain that we didn’t want a large meal. I had the braised short ribs, which were delicious, but the garlic mashed potatoes and vegetables were tasteless. My mother had the fried risotto balls, which were tasty, but the caprese salad was mediocre. The place was not crowded on a Saturday night, which likely is a reflection of the fact that the locals know that this place is nothing special.
Awesome food and the bartenders, Kasia and Amenda, were outstanding!!
We have been here several times. They were very short staffed on the night we visited. Did not have a table for us even though we had a reservation so we found seats at the bar. Only the bartender and 1 waiter working the whole place. They did a great job considering the amount of people and lack of staff. The food came out in a timely manner and was very good as always. I commend the staff that was there and we will be back as I know this was unusual for Tavolo’s.
This place is mediocre. Completely dead on a busier night and service was lacking. Our drinks were definitely made wrong. Food was not good enough to go back.
The service and food was fantastic. Our hostess and server we're both friendly and helpful. Best meal we have had in a long time. Highly recommend.
I live in NH but my daughter goes to college Ian Providence. When we go visit her we frequently go to Tavolo. There are so many good restaurants on Fed Hill but Tavolo always has great service and is a charming place. I highly recommend.
Wine tasting dinner was excellent. Chef did outstanding job with matching.
This Federal Hill gem provides an upscale Italian meal at a good price. The food was very good and the most expensive entree on the menu is $33, the filet mignon, which was a generous portion. Our server Nick was very knowledgeable and took time to get everything in our meal right. We will definitely return when in Providence!
Excellent food and service. Have gone a few times and always an enjoyable experience.
Nice place we sat outside. Noise from another club was loud. Service was good. However the kitchen was very slow. Almost and hour for our meals. Calamari was rubbery and greasy. The veal parm may possibly have been the worst I’ve ever had and struggled to eat half of it. Many other choices on the hill this was a one and done.
Start to finish it was all amazing. Especially the staff and our server.
Great food and service would recommend highly.very good selection to chose from husband had the rib eye said it was the best he ever had
Delicious filet mignon and veal parmigiana. Great service!
Our waiter, Victor, was amazing. He was attentive, warm and personable. Told us all about specials, outdoor dining and group opportunities. Food was very good. Would definitely go back and sit at the bar.
food was delicious. bar tender was phenomenal. love it here.
The music on the patio was too loud, and staff said they were not allowed to turn the volume down. We couldn't hear anything or have a normal conversation.
Took two of our daughters and my wife on a date and it was a agreat experience all around.
Everything was outstanding from the fresh made soup and bread to the perfectly cooked tuna! The desserts were a perfect size and extremely tasty!
We waited at the door for 10 minutes to be greated. We then got sat and tries to order a few things from the restaurant week menu and you were out of the 3 things I wanted to try. We paid for our drinks and then left. Very disappointing
2nd time there, and same story, horrific service. The waitress/bartender was non-exisitant
Solid overall. Ambiance was nice. Food was well prepared. Wine selection was appreciated. Sunday night was a bit off with service and music selection. However, everyone was nice. Would still consider coming back
Reserved this on open table left note that this was our Anniversary. No mention of it from any employee. Steak was unevenly cooked and sauce was way to salty. Sent it back. My husband was totally done with his meal before my Spaghetti was out. The waiter told the manager but he never came over to the table.
I can see why there is a Groupon.
Spaghetti was good my husband shrimp scampi was just ok. They should also tell customers that the olive oil on the table is spiced.
Much better restaurants in providence
Tavolo was fantastic as always, they really pay attention to detail. Kasha and Victor made our night as well as Nick being a wonderful server. The Salmon and short ribs were delicious. We had company from out of town and they were very impressed. Great value with restaurant week. Thanks again for a great dining experience.
We had the chicken and veal parmigiana, both were over cooked.
Service was a little slow.
We made reservations for Restaurant Week. Apparently they were understaffed so they brought in servers from their other location. The server was very friendly, but the service itself was horrible. We sat outside in the front, but it was far from classy by any means. The food was not bad, but I doubt we will be returning.
Nice atmosphere, the patio was really great, unfortunately, our host did not show this to us nor were we asked if we wanted to be seated there. I only saw it when I used the restroom. Server was good, and food very good. Nice wine list was a plus, also you can get a 9 oz. glass of wine!
Sat across from the bar, service was excellent, the food was hot and well presented and would come back.
Tavolo was a lovely restaurant right in the middle of all the fun Providence shops and restaurants. The hostess was sweet and acknowledged our anniversary (37th). We were happy that they had a private outdoor patio area. The food was delicious and there was a nice selection of wines. I gave 4 stars rather than 5 because of the service Our waiter was training someone, so perhaps that may have been part of the problem. The young man who refilled our water, was very sweet and attentive. We will definitely return.
Victor was outstanding and so was the New York strip thanks again Tim T
Always have a good meal and great service To Tavolo
Sausage was burned to a crisp and we were told that we would get a complimentary cocktail. All they gave us was a voucher for a free dessert on our next visit. We will not be back.
We have been to Tavolo several times and
Have always enjoyed it
This time was outstanding
Our GPS mistakenly took us to the Smithfield location but it was meant to be. We were on a relatively short timeframe and our waiter Chris took excellent care of us, food was terrific (burrata ravioli my son claimed were best ever), great hospitality and a place we will surely return to. If food and service is similar at Federal Hill location, then it must be outstanding.
