Owner very personable from the time you enter premises. Came to tables during meal. We sat in back patio. Great ambience, but out front also nice. Good quantity of food . Rice balls delicious and moist.

We are outside on the street for al fresco on the hill, and it was great! The staff was cheerful and helpful, offering suggestions and wine pairings. The price was higher than moderate, but not at all unreasonable for the food and ambiance. The food was outstanding!! We will definitely be returning!!

The veal was super tough and difficult to cut with a steak knife. I did not enjoy my meal at all. The appetizers were luke warm but ok. The chocolate cake was excellent.

I would give this restaurant a 5 star but, gave a 4 due to the atmosphere on the back patio. We sat abutting the storage of heat lamps, extra tables, and other outside storage items. I felt like I was sitting in a storage closet. Everything else was very good! We had the swordfish and spinach ravioli. Service couldn't have been better. I would recommend this restaurant for inside dining or outside dining in front to offer a better atmosphere.

The food was good but the service was lackluster. Caprese salad was without basil, the requested substitution was forgotten, and steak knives weren't brought until requested. The patio was lovely.

This was my first time visiting Atwells Avenue in Federal Hill... and although the neighborhood wasn't what I expected, Tavolo Wine Bar & Tuscan Grill was wonderful! The staff were so attentive and friendly. We opted to sit outdoors because of the nice weather and the courtyard was adorable and quiet from all the very loud street noise. Definitely a plus! The Burrata filled ravioli with Bolognese sauce was to die for! Thank you for a memorable dinner.

Don’t let them sit you near the door that leads to their outdoor patio. There’s constant traffic in snd out by patrons and Staff. It’s also right near the restrooms. The food is excellent and the wait staff is attentive!

Employees were relatively lax about mask-wearing around the table and host stand, which was somewhat uncomfortable. Food was generally good, but steak-frites was very disappointing (excessive char on exterior with interior undercooked relative to ordered medium-rare). Interactions with servers were generally positive, but sometimes it took a long time to get help.

Veal bad - big party of 16 not 6 feet away. Ask for bread and brought only oil no parmigiana cheese or pepper like the other tables. The penne was over cooked. Very loud. Bad experience

It was...odd. One man was hosting, serving, bar tending, and bussing. He was, somehow, pleasant and put together for the situation. Food was solid, but it was a bizarre vibe and we were a little uncomfortable.

Waiter was great, although he was the only water o a Sunday afternoon, he did a great job, The food was good, drinks were good, but they ran out of Lemon cello and Amaretto, not a good thing for an Italian restaurant, price is on the higher side due to having to buy sides for your entree's at another 8 bucks for veggies, or mash potatoes, I also don't think its fair not to serve a salad or veggies with an entree. My girlfriend always liked going here, we've been loyal customer for 6 years and I will continue just make her happy.

Perfect spot to have apps and cocktails with a friend! We sat outside and enjoyed a late lunch before the place got too busy. Food and drinks were perfection and our server went above and beyond to accommodate some requests for drinks that weren’t on the menu! Thank you!!

The ambiance was warm and comfortable, the food was very good, and the value was great! Loved the fact that they had 1/2 price bottles of wine on Wednesdays, too! The service was a bit slow, but I certainly can understand that as we bounce back a bit from COVID, it is hard to judge how busy their business will be. But the servers were friendly, and the owner/manager was very receptive, personavle, showed us around the restaurant and welcomed us back again! We will definitely be back!

Everything was great. Food service etc. my main issues for not giving five stars was the entertainment was way too loud and my biggest grip was the manager walking around with his mask down under his chin, acting as a drool guard if anything, walking around, coming up to tables and talking to everyone.

We were seated at a table wedged in the corner and waited for a waitress to come over for 20 minutes. The charcuterie board was not worth ordering or what it cost. Pomegranate Fizz drink was awful and also a waste of money.
