Reservation for 4PM on a Sunday. Quiet and not very busy. Asked to be seated away from bar ( history of loudness there)....and hostess found a great table. The room is quite dark, flashlight needed to read the menu. Food was exquisite...always the statler chicken for my partner and I had the halibut special. Came quickly, hot and delicious. Probably my 10th time there and will continue.

Our server seemed very rushed. We felt as if she did not hear us with certain parts of the order. This carries over to attention to detail and responsiveness.

I realize restaurants are short handed. The restaurant was recommended to us.

This place is jewel. The food was terrific, with large portions, the wine list was extensive and the service was impeccable. It's a 40 mile drive and worth every minute of the time. Our waiter was Sean, and his approach nad interaction was marvelous. An absolutely great dining experience.

I understand the restaurant’s are trying get established again and help is hard to find.
It felt like none of the restaurant employees wanted to be there and it showed from the manager to the waitstaff, even the food was subpar. I have been here before but it is a lot different now. I definitely will not return based on this last experience

Food was good, had the Frutta de Mare, could have had more seafood on it. 1 shrimp, 1 scallop . Calamari rings were over cooked. Flavor of the sauce was good. Service was good. Overall pleasant experience. Husband had Osso Buco. He said it was delicious.

The only issue we had was the front. The greeter and the owner or manager didn’t know what they were doing at the beginning. I think it was miscommunication. But other than that ? Perfect.

We’re “regulars” meaning most Thursday evenings you’ll find us here.
.We’re very fortunate to have such a great establishment in our town of Smithfield.
Food and service is always top notch and it’s one of the few fine restaurants that consistently cooks our filet to a perfect medium rare which is why we keep coming back!

I’ve been to Tavolo’s many times over the years. Usually a very good experience. Tonight’s was the absolute worst. Thursday night dinner with family should not have taken 2:15. Waitress should also have cared that she forgot one of our appetizers. She should have also stopped by more than 1 time during the meal. She should have also offered to package the wine bottle we didn’t finish. Worst of all when I finally got my bill, I found an extra charge for a bottle of wine $30 and a $40 gratuity (for 4 people on a $156 bill). Waitress blamed it on the Manager. I got it straightened out but they have lost me as a customer. Tried to find the Manager as I was leaving to discuss but he was nowhere to be found. Very disappointed to have to write this review.

Food wasn’t as good as usual. Ahi tuna was very tough and bland. Expect it to also be at room temperature but it was very cold. As if it had been frozen. Statler chicken was supposed to come with spinach but came with broccoli rabe which my wife doesn’t like. Should have been told it was different. Also, ordered clams zuppa with red sauce but came with white. Server indicated I ordered white but my wife heard me order red clearly. However, he was a bit further away and maybe misheard me. Server did offer to change it but I like both versions so kept it. It was good.

Enjoy coming to the restaurant so will be back but probably won’t order the ahi tuna again.

We've gone to the Providence location, but the Smithfield one is certainly a better atmosphere and more engaging waitstaff.

Short rib was excellent, as was the seared salmon. Service was fairly attentive, and the wait person must have been very busy, as had some difficulty remembering some of what we had talked about.

We had made a last minute reservation for outdoor seating. Man was it hot but with the delta going around we played it safe. We were the only ones outside of course. The staff was great and never made a fuss about having to go outside to serve us. Our waitress was awesome and was very attentive. And, of course, the food was excellent as usual.

Our server was attentive snd very helpful regarding food selections. The risotto was filled with great vegetables but lacked that buttery taste. The scallops and halibut were cooked perfectly. The fig burrata flatbread was tasty. We just wish there was room for dessert.
