The antipasto bar is the place to start as we feature Mozzarella di Bufala, Burrata, artisan proscuitto and salami - sliced to order, along with a constantly changing offering of crostini and salads. Also setting Tavola apart is the commitment to housemade Pastas and sauces - toothsome and hearty. Share some with friends and family along with one of our Big Plates - steak, roast chicken, braised meats and fish, prepared as classic Italian platters.
Had a wonderful meal with a couple of great friends. Everything was perfect!
Always great food & service in a neighborhood restaurant.
Great dinner - excellent food and service. Baby friendly !
This was my 7 time coming to Tavola this year. I LOVE this restaurant. It's one of the more authentic, and charming, Italian restaurants in the city. A real gem!
Our server provided excellent service and recommendations for food and wine. It was an excellent birthday dinner. Thank you again
Food took very long to come out. We were told the steak (?) would take 25-30 minutes to cook, but it ended up coming at least 45 minutes-an hour after. And none of the other stuff we ordered came early either aside from the appetizer. They all came together with the steak so we had to wait very long to eat.
All the hype & the food does not measure up to the value & the experience.
Consistently great food
Great food and great atmosphere! Definitely one of the best Italian restaurants in Vancouver
Always a great spot to go. Great staff and food. GO NOW!!!
Very good quality was excellent and service wes great.
Wonderful staff, excellent food! Will be back!
Honestly one of my favourite restaurants in the city. Always very friendly, laid back service, food is amazing. The only reason I gave 4 stars for service is because the server rung in the wrong dish for my partner so our timing was off and I was done way earlier. Other than that service was very friendly and attentive. But they could ring in the wrong item every time and I would still come back here cause the food is so good. See you soon tavola 🥰
Excellent service and food!!
A must go to in Vancouver

Such a great night
So mush variety ... delicious from start to finish
Excellent meal, so good we went back the next night!
What a great experience! Our male server was outstanding and the food matched the service. This is a great place for a small group to share and experience a selection of dishes. I definitely will return next time I’m in Vancouver.
They charge $3 for extra Parmesan. Never had that before wow. Pasta dishes are mostly pasta with barely anything on it. Very little protein. Never asked if I wanted fresh pepper and to give you an idea of who goes to this restaurant: the first people next to us included a drunk mother screaming about Mexicans and when they left, a very tattooed 25+ male talked about partying. Up to you if that’s your type of ambience, but not for us :)
Excellent fresh food as always. Crostini delicious and had the brick chicken for the first time. Super juicy and sauce had just the right amount of kick. Gnocchi super light and fluffy and hazelnuts were a great addition. Will not stop coming back to Tavola!
Excellent home style Italian food at good value. Allowed low cost corkage, which is a great plus. Noisy, buzzy place but would go again
Really good pastas with efficient service.
Absolutely LOVE this restaurant, such a well run, fantastic neighborhood gem. Staff is genuine, place is comfortable and best off all food is AAAmazing and all of the aforementioned is consistent!
Delicious food and great service and they even got my son a kid's pasta with plain beans for a picky eater!
Great atmosphere and good food!
This is the second time in the last few months that we have gone to Tavola - although it was over all very good, service & food, both times the meat that we ordered was not cooked well. Short ribs were over cooked and chicken was undercooked.
We have dined at Tavola many times and the fact that we keep coming back speaks loudly for this restaurant. The food is always good. We do find that sometimes it is not consistent. We do highly recommend it. Good food, good service and good ambiance. The gnocchi are the best!
Always our favorite when we are in town. Amazing Italian food in a casual, relaxed atmosphere with terrific service from friendly staff.
Lovely place and excellent food and service but I wish they had a kid-free zone. We were there for our anniversary celebration dinner but had tables with 2-3 kids each on both sides of our table, which broke the atmosphere for us. It was a 7:30 pm weekday reservation but still, the restaurant should be able to offer a kid-free area to ensure all diners are getting the experience they deserve. I don't mind kids in general but this is not a cheap eat and for the money we paid and how nice the place is, I would expect a much nicer ambiance and was a little disappointed to have table-bumping, colouring books and toys, plus some mild crying from the baby on one of the tables during our meal. The place was full so there was no way to ask to be moved.
Great service! But a couple of the dishes were a little under seasoned.
Excellent pasta and service!!We will definitely return!
Always excellent. This is the only Italian restaurant I go to in the city for quality of food, value and ambiance. Yes there are other very nice Italian restaurants, but they’re very pricey and the ambiance is upscale and hushed. This is place is fun, friendly and a great place to celebrate or just have a great meal.
We have passed Tavola restaurant walking our dog many times in the last year. It is always bustling. Now we see why. Interesting, delicious Italian food in a lively environment with great service and great Negroni aperitivos.
Thank you for your kind welcome. It was super to sit on the patio - us oldsters have trouble hearing in the main room. I appreciate in particular that changing the arrangement to seat 4 people more intimately round a single table was so kindly accepted by our host. The food you serve is truly excellent - but in fact I bring friends to your place in order to visit with them - that is more important even than the food to me! After all, I'm a decent cook. I don't need to bring friends out in order to give them a good dinner.
Just in order to do so without having any distractions from their company! My conclusion: You guys really know your business. Thank you.
Perfect cooked rabbit and very friendly bartender !
Consistently great food, great service
Stayed in Vancouver for 6 days and tried many highly reviewed restaurants, and I’ll rate Tavola at the very top. The quality of pastas and their exquisite sauces were superb. Also really enjoyed a bottle of the California Cab with the dishes. Their burrata board was delicious and the service level was properly balanced of not being overwhelming nor non-chalant. Will highly recommend Tavola to friends.
I love Tavola, I didn’t find the food as good this visit though. The chicken was a bit over cooked, the crostini's were slightly burnt, and the cake that is usually warm was not. That’s said the pasta was amazing.
Without question, the best restaurant in Vancouver.
