The atmospher, staff and food is excellent. This is our third time visiting this restaurant. I have not been disappointed with any of my meal choices, from scallops or fish to veal parmesan. Will definately go back again.

We hope this was a bad night. We have been to Tavolo on two other occasions and it was a wonderful experience. The server was inattentive at best. The food was bland, over cooked and over priced. 50$ for a rib eye that was ordered MR and was drier than leather is a tough bill to pay. Tried to order desert but it was 20 minutes before the server came back and then told us the chef who prepared that particular desert was out. Not a great anniversary dinner. We should have gone to our go to place down the road.

The atmosphere is great! An eclectic Italian feel, and a wonderful acoustic gustatory playing. She was terrific! The halibut special was outstanding, as was the Veal ossobucco.
An outstanding wine list!

We shall return!

Swordfish was rubbery, risotto didn't have veggies in as we were told when we asked for them. coffee had a lot of grinds. cheesecake was old. First time this has happened after 6 wonderful visits. Waitress had too many tables. Calamaria was dripping with grease. So disappointed.

This was my second time at Tavolo. The wait staff was fine. The food however was a disappointment, the sword fish special was not special at all , average at best. The surprise of the evening was the unexpected charge of $22.00 for a glass of wine. Needles so say, we were so disappointed, There will not be a third vist.

This was my first time at Tavolo and I took my sisters and niece and was using a groupon. The server was very good but as the restaurant started to get busier it became hard to get her attention. The food was excellent and the wine list was extensive! I felt like the wine prices were a little high but food prices were right on point. I liked the selection of side dishes especially the fresh vegetables. One of the people in my party had a ribeye steak and I had the pork. Both meats were perfectly cooked. The noise level was high but that seems to be the norm in almost all restaurants these days. It’s so unusual to find a restaurant where you can actually carry on a conversation. I would definitely recommend Tavolo.

Strip mall Italian restaurant, but surprisingly attractive wine decor interior.

Very SLOW service-10 minutes to order a cocktail in a 1/2 filled restaurant on a Sunday night.
Then server returned to place order with drink delivery. after a request for an additional few minutes, server returned 20 minutes later. Oil and bread plates, but no bread. When asked, the response was they ran out last night?

Overall, my experience was positive. Due to a party in the main dining area, we sat near the bar (which was a bit draftier from the door opening). The food was tasty, except part of my pork tenderloin was raw in the center. A server offered to have it cooked more, to which I agreed, and it came back nicely cooked. In a situation like that, I think the management should offer a free dessert or knock off the cost of a drink, to keep goodwill flowing and ensure return visits. I heartily recommend this wine and food restaurant; customers will be pleased with the qualitynof food and the service.

I recently attended one of their wine tasting events in Smithfield. It was a 5 course meal with wine pairing. The salad was good, although primarily just arugula. The second course was ravioli with pesto and was very good. The next 2 courses were very disappointing. The halibut was overcooked, served over a risotto made with a mishmash of veggies(green beans, red and green peppers) with a jalepino butter. The flavors did not blend well. The next course was a tough sliced red meat(steak?) over purple mashed potatoes. Not only unappealing presentation, but served at a less than lukewarm temperature. Desert was average: a semi dry/dense bread pudding. The wine was very good, but overall the event was not worth $85 per person after the added 20% gratuity. I have enjoyed this restaurant many times, but they seemed to struggle serving good food to many people at one time.

We had a party of 9 and were in a separate room by ourselves. Our waitress was great, very attentive and knew how the dishes were prepared. We ordered risotto balls and margerita pizza for appetizers. They were awesome. Party ordered, fish special, raviolis w/ cavatelli/sausage/brocolli rabe, chicken parmigiana, rib eye steak. All were excellent. Will definitely come back

The wait staff will communicate with each other by shouting across the dinning room. I didn't mind the paper tablecloths, but the waiter set up the roll of paper on the table next to us and began unrolling lengths and ripping them against the knife edge. Rather irritating after several minutes.

A wonderful evening meal. The calamari was delicious. She had the Lobster Ravioli with shrimp; I had the grilled swordfish. So many good things on the menu; made it difficult to choose. I tried the Drew Bledsoe wine for the first time. Was pleasantly surprised. An outstanding post-Valentine's experience.
