Charming intimate restaurant with a very attentive staff. A great evening recently during the festival. Bill was our host and sat us at the bar per our request. Nice guy and hands on working along with the staff.
Food was delicious...Margarita pizza and short ribs. Bar was comfortable with TV and great service. Definitely check them out. We'll be sure to try their other locations as well.

Ordered lasagna, they came out over an hour later that they just plated the last lasagna to someone else and what else did we want. Chicken in penne vodka was very rubbery, seemed microwaved. Outdoor seating was good

Despite reading good reviews online about Tavolo, we unfortunately had a negative experience. The food was really bad, and the service was terrible. Our server forgot about us (and other tables near us) multiple times. We heard neighboring tables complaining to themselves about the poor service as well. We definitely won’t be returning.

Nice Italian restaurant. Good atmosphere and the owner / manager was fantastic. He gladly replaced a bottle of wine that we felt had a funny taste. Good to do!

Great place but food took way too long ... service & portions of dinner food were not the best. Our waitress was very short with us, we had to flag her down a few times to get her attention. Restaurant was very nice has a great vibe, we sat outside so we didn't mind that the food took longer than normal but they definitely need more staff.

We ordered salads to share for the table. They came out brown and wilted as well as overly dressed . No bread. Everything was a la carte. All of us had the stuffed cod. Those were overly salty. For dessert I had the s’mores brownie which was dry and hard to chew. Thankfully the ice cream made that easier. Prices were high for what we received. Very disappointed.

The atmosphere was loud. Waitresses were telling at each other over customers heads. Our waitress was brand new and could not manage the number of tables she had. We didn't place our food order for more than 45 minutes after we arrived. When the waitress came to take our food order she had cut her hand and dripped blood on our table and left it as if that were okay. Other tables around us got up and left because they were waiting so long with no service. We planned on ordering an appetizer, by the time we placed our order we asked for the appetizer to come out with our main food since we were short on time. Our food came out and the appetizer still wasn't ready. I had to remind our waitress that we had ordered an appetizer, she then quickly brought it out. The food itself tasted good, but not good enough for its prices. We were very disappointed in the entire as a whole. Not the romantic anniversary dinner we expected. Definitely not planning to go back.

We were there on Saturday 7:15
They were out of Lasagna, and their special so we ordered something else and we were not happy with the food.
We have had great experience there before as well as the place in Warwick but this particular time it did live up to their normal

The owner or manager was very accommodating and despite having outdoor reservations, gave us an indoor table right by the open front of the restaurant. Drinks were good…and the sangria was very good. The shrimp salad was fantastic…but the main course was sort of unremarkable. It wasn’t bad…but it didn’t earn the “we need to eat here again” rating. Overall, a good evening and decent meal but we won’t necessarily be rushing back.

The food was delicious and the wait for food was not long. Great wine list. The waitress was polite, professional and knew the menu and specials. The only 1 thing that I was disappointed was we reserved outdoor seating for the back patio, as was our anniversary and there was a mixup so we had to sit outside in the front. However, there was live music outside so it was enjoyable. We will definitely be back again.

All was good except the live entertainment- too loud. It was hard for my date and I to have a relaxed conversation as well as to communicate with the server. Venue is too small to have amplified music.

Sat outside , lovely night. They should make their area more eye appealing.
Husband ordered lasagna, his favorite. When the dish came there was no meat in it. After research by the waitress it seems they ran out of their usual and cook took it upon himself to substitute a vegetarian dish. Having been in the "business" myself for several years, never saw that coming! We quickly changed entree and all was well. I had the swordfish special and it was great.
Owner is very hands on. Does a great job.

Sorry. I wanted to love this place. While the restaurant, front and rear patios are very nice, the service was hostile and quite awful and the food was very low quality. Waitress was rude and extremely impatient. Board was essentially a lunchable thrown of wood. Definitely not Federal Hill worthy spot, too bad. Great location, nice set up but service and food are severely lacking.

Took 20 minutes before we got a waitress to ask us if we wanted drinks. Food was not as ordered. Definitely do not get the sunday special(horrible). Filet was good, but had to send back overcooked. My Cosmos didnt even taste good. Outside patio is very nice and the entertainment was awesome. I think they need more waitstaff, and new cooks. Has potential. I wont be back!

The management was very accommodating and the waitress did a great job. Some food selections were limited or not available at the time of our visit. There was still a great selection of meals. And yes, the food was very good. We sat in the patio area which added some ambiance to our visit. There was also a young woman entertaining us with her beautiful voice. Overall, the six of us had a great time!
