The food was delicious! Portions were very generous, and they even have a great kid’s menu. Very stylish but not stuffy or mean to kids. Location was very central.

We picked a perfect week day night to dine. It was cold and rainy with not many folks around. The service was good, the food was very good, and our overall experience was delightful.

Had a great night here as first visit to Providence location. We had been to the Warwick location when they first opened. This location is beautiful and not something noticed from the outside. We have ate on the Hill many times and never noticed this location and glad we finally stopped in. Server Nick was very attentive and professional and our entrees were great. Definitely recommend the bread pudding dessert as was fantastic. Glad we found this location and can't wait to visit again.

We waited at our table about 15-20 minutes before we had to stop someone to ask if we had a waiter. Other than that, we ordered the charcuterie and a grilled Margherita pizza. Both were very good!

I'm always surprised that there isn't a line out the door for Tavalo. The food is awesome! I have never had a disappointing meal there – EVER! It's really my go-to place.

We met friends for lunch. We had not seen them in years. The staff waited patiently as we talked before making our lunch orders. The food was very good. We have eaten at the other location and always enjoyed the meal. This was no different. The only issue is parking.

Excellent and plentiful meals as always. Took two special friends for their birthdays and they were thrilled. I especially enjoyed the lobster ravioli dish, very yummy! I have been here several times and have tried the new Warwick location. Both are outstanding.

The restaurant was kept at an uncomfortably warm temperature. Although, it did not appear to be very busy they appeared to be short staffed. The wait was horrible. Everything from taking our order to bringing our food and drinks took way too long. The waitress was very nice and kept apologizing. She seemed to be doing her best.

Service was great, our waitress was very attentive. Wine selection was good, and prices were as expected. The food was......just fine. We enjoyed the salmon dish and spinach ravioli, but it wasnt amazing. For Federal Hill, you expect amazing food.

We waited for a few minutes at the host stand to be seated. No one was at the stand. No one was in the restaurant. When we were seated there were no utensils or napkins. We had to ask for them. When we asked for bread, the waiter said they didn’t get a delivery. There were only a couple specials. The bathroom had no toilet paper or paper towel. The food was delicious...it is a shame that everything else wasn’t good. This restaurant does not compare to the other location in Smithfield. Very disappointed.

I had the sword fish,it was delicious. Three of our party had the lobster ravioli with pink sauce, they all raved about it. My other friend had the short bibs and gave me a taste, wonderful, fell off the bone. The entertainment was Marco Turo, excellent voice, we all had a great time with him.

The arancini and the braised beef shank over gnocchi were the best examples of each that I've had anywhere. I was absolutely impressed.

Only Open Table restaurant available at that time. Should have been a tip-off. Arrogant waiter kept trying to push more food and drinks on our kids and wouldn’t answer questions. Pappardelle clumped together. Won’t be returning.

All around average experience- the major issue was the service: our server was friendly enough but would disappear for very long stretches between courses. Cappuccino was literally cold: probably ordered and made and left on the service bar a while before he returned to serve it. With so many great restaurants on the hill, definitely wouldn’t come back.

Food was great as usual! Calamari was outstanding!! Seriously second to NONE! I usually get catch of the day or some seafood entree and decided on a pizza. Did. Not. Disappoint! Can't wait to come back!

I really hate to leave a negative review but this visit just wasn't good. I have been at least once before and it was fantastic. My first and most important issue this time was that the entrees came out while we were enjoying the apps and we were actively eating them. Why are we being rushed when the restaurant was 20% full? When I go out I want to enjoy the company of everyone at the table. When I am literally eating the app and I see the plates coming in our direction I cringe because I know everyone has to stop and make room for the extra plates. By the time I finished the app the veal parm was not even hot. I ate a third of it and took the rest home. I just had half of the portion I took home for lunch and it was so salty I went to the fridge, got the take out container and threw it out. Maybe I'll be back someday based on the first visit but I've been recommending Tavolo and that will stop.

We brought our joyful Providence College graduate for dinner after the Saturday afternoon Convocation Mass. A party of 8.

While we got off to a sour foot with our waiter, the hostess quickly made a change in wait staff and it was smooth sailing for the rest of the night. It was very busy but he ensured the perfect pace for our dinner and was excellent ambassador for the best dishes and tasty wine.

Bravo Tavolo!
