Food and service were excellent. Only problem that I had here (once again) was that they added tip to bill because I used a Groupon. I don't have a problem with them adding the tip but they don't tell you and they end up losing out because I would have tipped them much more than they added.

Guy walking around with his mask not covering his nose or mouth. For the price I expected better food. The Sunday dinner was kind of bland and penne in vodka sauce was just ok, nothing to write home about. Serice was really good and drinks were good for reasonable price.

I usually dine in the Smithfield location and occasionally on Federal Hill. While waiting to be seated I noticed the Front end manager sitting there talking away with what seemed to be friends... Oblivious to us being there.. Finally one of only 2 wait staff that I saw working came over and seated us. It appears they were also tending the bar as well. There was a group of about 6 very loud and semi obnoxious men who appeared to have been drinking quite a bit standing by the bar. This review would have been much better if Bozo got off his a** and did his job. It was not overly busy by any means. The two young ladies working were giving it their all and I highly commend them for it... Bozo most definitely could have lent a helping hand... But didn't.. I actually wonder if he even knew we were there...

Came here on a Fri night with my husband. Food and service were both great. Love that they have 9 oz wine pours too! We had a Groupon so price was very reasonable. No Valet parking but we did not have trouble finding a spot, might be more difficult if weather was better.

I would have given 5 stars, but was disappointed with one thing. I had made a reservation for Outside, and when we arrived I was told outside was closed/not set up. One of the main reasons that I chose this this restaurant was because we could reserve an outside table. I wish I had been notified that they were not opening it for the night. Other than that, everything was fantastic!

Our last dinner at Tavolo was a mixed bag.

The food itself was good. The Frutti di Mare was not as good as the one I had last time and my husband's baked four cheese ravioli was good, but not outstanding.

The reason for the 2 stars was the interaction we had with the waiter. Overall he was pleasant but towards the end of the meal, I happened to ask how the restaurant had done during the pandemic and how have the Saturday night have been with the road closed and tables outside? He took the conversation right into the mask policy, the politics behind it and our need to check out videos of the political candidate we liked to realize "a different side of him". We were really upset about this.

A meal is supposed to be a pleasant experience and I never thought a question about how business was doing could turn into a heavy duty discussion on politics.

Not happy about that and my husband's blood pressure was really high as we left the restaurant. Disappointed.

My husband and I truly loved this restaurant! Our waitress Stacy was so sweet and accommodating and made us feel like we were her only table. The manager came by a couple times as well and we had a wonderful conversation. The food was amazing and we felt like family! We will be back again and bring our own family and friends! Thank you for a wonderful evening!

We requested and received a table away from heavy foot traffic and near a heater (outdoor seating with cool/dry/breezy conditions - we were actually seated at table surrounded by 4 heaters). Server Tommy was great. My wife and I each had the mussel chowder (large portion of fresh mussels in a delicious cream broth) and specials - baked cod with saffron over risotto and broiled halibut over a squash risotto with spinach. Treated ourselves to a bottle of Napa Rombauer Sauvignon Blanc and split cheesecake with berry compote with hot drinks - 1 double expresso and I had to settle for decaf coffee as decaf expresso was not an option (my only disappointment). Great Oct dinner outdoors on Federal Hill!
