    My wife, her cousin and I had a very nice lunch in mid-July at Tavola. They don't havw a lot of menu items, but all of ours were great! My wife enjoyed a grilled chicken sandwich with fries. The sandwich was really tasty but the fries were outstanding. We asked what was on them and Jason, the bartender and our server said "salt and pepper - overseasoned." They were perfectly fried. I had a Caesar salad with whole anchovies and a perfectly cooked salmon filet, and my wife's cousin also had a filet on her mixed greens salad. I also had an espresso which was served in a wonderful little demitasse cup. I hadn't seen such a cup since we were last in Europe.

    We were there on a Tuesday night, so didn't expect a big crowd, but they did have a solid number of diners. Service was prompt, server was knowledgeable about the menu and the food was delivered with enough time to relax and converse. We were at the restaurant a couple of years ago and the service was horrendous - great improvement - we will go back again.

    Appetizers were the main event and best food for dinner. The entree (chicken piccata and bucatini meatballs) weee extremely salty to the point of inedible. The restaurant was great and prepared alternatives. Atmosphere is lovely and the service was excellent.

    We’ve never dined at a restaurant that exhibited such passion for its product. Everyone performed at the highest level and not only did we enjoy an incredible dinner, we returned the next day for lunch. Both times we praised Chef Jonathan and his staff for serving the most impressive Tagliatelle and Squid Ink Seafood pasta dinner and an incredibly tasty Grilled Chicken Sandwich for lunch. We dined on our 55th Anniversary and want to return for our 56th….That’s quite a statement since Tavola is in Minneapolis and we live in California! Side note: be sure to order the Panna Cotta for dessert. It’s Magnifico!

    Most of the food was quite good. We were a table of six so we had quite a bit of variety. Highly recommend the meatballs and carpaccio appetizers. The Burrata had too much olive tapenade and stewed tomatoes which took away from its delicate flavor. The calamari wasn’t cooked crisply enough. Ravioli, scallops, chicken piccata, tagliatelle we’re all delightful. The pizza crust was uncooked in the middle and had tons of flour on the bottom of the crust. It was ineible. Our server asked if we wanted the pizza taken off the bill instead of just doing it, so we politely said no.

    The food at Tavola was excellent. Two people had pasta dishes and one had the chicken piccata. All three dishes were marvelous flavorful and the pasta was clearly fresh. The service was excellent, but due to the holiday weekend downtown was deserted. So, there were very few people in the restaurant.
