Italian
Tavola is a terrific West End neighbourhood restaurant, serving modern Italian food. Welcoming you is the team who brought you previous local heroes Tapastree and Nook. Tavola continues the tradition of sharing food - family style, in a warm, contemporary environment at value-conscious prices. The dining room reflects this convivial atmosphere with a 18 seat shared table that is perfect for both groups and casual diners.

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.

All round, very nice. Good food, good service and we had chosen a relatively quiet time (6:15pm)
for a pleasant chat with friends and a tasty meal.

Overall a good experience, would recommend to check it out. Reservations at a good dinner timeslot can be difficult. The food is good, the pasta was not perfectly cooked but still delicious.

Arrived and was greeted not only by the smells of deliciousness but by a smiling person. We were seated and promptly had water at our table then our server wish I remembered his name ( red head male) popped over asked about beverages we asked to try a wine before purchasing the bottle he brought back 2 samples same price point :). starter was the burrata and prosciutto my brother kept saying “Mmmm and it melts in my mouth”.
Entrees we had pasta dishes my bro Bucatini amatriciana and I enjoyed one of the nightly specials neither of us had anything left in our bowls!
Dessert we both had Sticky toffee pudding- we are siblings so no sharing- this dessert was everything I wanted it to be again nothing left on our plates. Highly recommend Tavalo for a great dining experience

It was our first time at Tavola, it was really nice, great food and awesome service. It's a pretty casual place, which was cool, not stuffy like some of the fine dining spots around town. The Lamb Sausage pasta so so damn good, really.
I can't wait to go back, wife says two thumbs up, so the wait won't be very long...phew!

We went there as a group for my husbands birthday and we had the absolute worst service! This was our 2nd time at Tavola and we really enjoyed our 1st experience so decided to come back with our friends and needless to say, it’ll be our last. Our server was slow, food took well over an hour, no acknowledgement or explanation and when we brought it up, the manager got defensive and said it’s cause we ordered the steak. Our friends steak came undercooked even tho he asked for medium. Unacceptable! Would not recommend this restaurant!!

Tavola is fantastic! The ambience, service, and especially the food are perfect. I’ve been here for birthdays and dates and it never disappoints. I highly recommend the eggs and anchovies, my favourite dish!

Good food, but very expensive given the portion sizes. Service was warm, personal and with a few exceptions during the meal, generally efficient.

We recently had a dinner for 5 and ordered appetizers and 7 main dishes. All food was very good, a couple dishes were exceptional. Only small irritation was that one of our 7 main dishes was forgotten and therefore came late. Overall very good experience, we will definitely go back.

The noise level is beyond “energetic” and is probably in the extreme decibel range suitable for safety. A dinner out with friends isn’t much fun if you can’t hear or speak with them comfortably. It’s a shame as everything else at Tavola is exceptional.
