About

The premise for this new eatery “Tavola” (Table in Italian) is based on regional italian fare, mainly Puglian, Roman and Sicilian.



Tavola was inspired by owner Nick Accardi’s extensive travels to these regions, especially the town of Castelvetrano, the source of Nick’s family roots. With the help of his relative chefs, Nick has secured quality regional ingredients, including single estate castelvetrano olives and extra virgin olive oil, which he exclusively imports and can be purchased at Tavola.

Featuring two wood-burning ovens specially handcrafted in Naples, Italy using vesuvio volcanic clay. Having 2 ovens allows for the possibility to cook at more than one temperature. The Pizza oven burns at 900 degrees, while the other can operate at a second temperature for meats, fish and vegetables.

The service and food at Tavola were impeccable. We were visiting NY and a friend had recommended we check out this place. It was so worth the trek from Tribeca to Hell's Kitchen. We enjoyed each of our courses very much; the bruschetta, branzino and the pizza special of the day were delightful. Definitely try the food here!

It was fancy enough to feel like it was a night out but you could also come as you are. Pretty inside some tables are close but the noise level is perfect so that you don't feel as if you are involved in someone else's conversation. Good for pre-theatre or anytime. Food was good as well as the service. They accommodated us even though we were early for our reservation. Nice place.

EVERY TIME I EAT THERE WITH A RESERVATION, I RETURN TO WORK ONLY TO HAVE RECEIVED A SCOLDING EMAIL FROM OPEN TABLE SAYING THAT I MISSED THE RESERVATION. YOU TOO CAN HAVE THIS EXPERIENCE. GUYS, IF YOU ARE GOING TO TAKE RESERVATIONS, CHECK PEOPLE OFF THE LIST.

OTHER THAN THAT, IT IS MY GO TO PLACE.

Was a nice spot to go on a date that was casual and intimate depending on where you sit. Food was really good and fresh but prices were a little higher than I would expect. Overall the service was good and I would recommend it as a good Italian restaurant for a fun casual evening.

The restaurant is very close to the Baryshnikov Arts Center. We had dinner at Tavola after a performance. The burrata was very flavorful, the pizza with fig was unusual and delicious. I enjoyed my spaghetti vongole very much. We would gladly return when next we are in need of dinner in the same neighborhood.

This restaurant especially the pizza was so much better the first time I went there 2 years ago. This time the Caeser salad was very good and rigatoni was done just right. Pizza was just OK.

We had broadway show tickets and didn't want the typical 'pre show dinner' restaurant. Tavola was a real gem....we loved both the food and service! To top it off, the waiter let us know when happy hour was about to end (5:30) and asked if we wanted refills! I highly recommend this quaint Italian restaurant!

We've eaten there once before. The pizza is still great, but we were disappointed with the eggplant parmigiana this time after loving it last time. We'd go back one more time to see if it's better again.

Pasta aglio & olio was not drained.
Is a very simple Italian dish.
Just spaghetti al dente, drained + olive oil & garlic. Dry. No sauce.
Pasta overcooked laid on lot of water.

2 members of our 4 person party were 45 mins late for our reservation, and they were able to seat us when the latecomers arrived. We had never been to Tavola and chose it because of the location and very reasonable prices. We all LOVED our food. The goat cheese arugula pistachio salad was one of my favorite salads. Mild and delicious. My niece loved the salmon, her mom loved the risotto special, my brother loved the whole wheat pasta with salmon and pesto, and the Grecco pizza was very flavorful. The service was attentive and friendly. This was our first time at this restaurant and we all agreed we'd be back.

Second time at Tavola Had a 5:45 reservation only a few tables were taken. Our server was not very friendly and seemed to be rushing us. Had to ask for second glass of wine and asked for extra red sauce he brought it but no spoon... Seemed to be more interested in hanging out at the bar than adding to our dinning experience. The food was delicious as always but we felt the service adversely impacted our experience.

We were staying at Marriott Courtyard just a block up the street, so we found the restaurant online and decided to give it a try. Wow we were glad we did! We had pasta dishes and pizza which were all excellent. The bottle of Chianti Riserva was nice too. Our waiter was very attentive and cordial, and overall is was a great experience. This is a little neighborhood Italian place that satisfies. We would definitely return.

First time dining at this restaurant. We both enjoyed our dinner. Notable was the charcuterie and the pastas. Next time I'll ask for a little lighter touch on the sauce. The wait staff was professional and very accommodating. I will return.
