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.

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.

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

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 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!

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.

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.

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.

I have been to Tavalo before and it has never disappointed me. I usually share and app with my dining companion. all split - 1 app, 1 salad and 1 entrée is enough to make you full. The wait staff is always nice. someone once mentioned feeling pressured to get "large pours" since it is a wine bar, but I have never felt pressured about anything the 3 times I have visited Tavalo. It is pricey without a Groupon but I think it's worth it. Give it a try. PS there is also an outside seating area w/ a fire pit. I have yet to enjoy that though.

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!

Previously went to the one in Smithfield and loved it. Went here for a date night and loved it. The Fried Risotto Balls are amazing. The wait staff is always great. Very friendly and fun. This location is a little smaller than Smithfield so the tables can seem a little close together. Overall, great place.

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.

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.

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.
