We were there on a busy weekday night with a full house, almost all the tables arriving at the same time before a show at the Pageant. They handled it perfectly even under the stressful circumstances. Will definitely go back.

Food was ok. Server was efficient, but the food was very slow in being served. I think the restaurant could be great with just a few minor adjustments

A good solid spot to visit. We came for a small birthday gathering and they helped to accommodate for that.

However, they have shortened their menu which unfortunately took off the lasagna. The reasoning was because they wanted to separate themselves from their sister restaurant. That was abut odd to me but nevertheless we still stayed. The sauces have also changed to the point where they were all thin. At our table, we had the bolognese, Alfredo, and tutto mari. The bolognese and Alfredo were so thin and a bit bland. They did make for great leftovers later when the sauces were left to thicken up.

They had 2 large parties but they were still pretty attentive for our party of four.

Overall pretty good

The food is always amazing which keeps me coming back!! Service was friendly, but not very on top of things especially for a restaurant that wasn’t full. In no way acknowledged that it was my birthday which isn’t required but it was surprising that they didn’t.

Regarding the service, the restaurant was understaffed. Our waiter ran his tail off, but we waited a lot during the evening. No fault of the waiter.

Please be aware that Tavolo V won't guarantee your reservation time. We booked a reservation so we can eat there prior to our show at the Pageant. When we arrived, we were told they didn't know how long it would be, even though we had a confirmed reservation through Open Table. We were not seated until around 40 minutes AFTER our reservation time. Then, when we finally got our food, we only had less than 10 minutes to hurriedly eat before rushing to our show. Several of us only were able to eat half of our meals or less. It was completely unacceptable. A properly managed restaurant would take into account possible crowds before shows (particularly since the Pageant is right across the street). I have never had to wait this long for a CONFIRMED reservation. At a minimum, the restaurant should have offered some type of compensation for our meals, but none was offered. We will not be returning.

We met for my friends 75th Birthday. The noise was over the top. We could not talk to one another because it was so noisy.
My chicken had so much pepper on it, my mouth was burning with each bite. The gnocchis were black, burned and hard as a rock. This was not a fun dinner!

Tavolo has excellent food and very friendly service, although the service was not exceptionally fast. The vibe has a nice casual, friendly feel to it. The noise level was a little bit more than ideal for us.

The food presentation was rich and pleasing. You will find the sauces and spices to be slightly different than what you are used to. The dining room was busy, but it was not deafening loud, like so many restaurants these days.

We had the Cauliflower and Brussels Sprouts appetizers. Both were delicious. The bread they served on the side (with olive oil and grated Parmesan) was also delicious. I had the risotto of the day, which was shrimp, crab meat, and spinach. That was terrific. The leftovers were pretty good the next day too!

My husband and I had dinner at Tavolo V just before a concert at the Pageant. We first sat at a table with a cold draft, and the host moved us immediately. Our waiter was wonderful and offered opinions that led to perfect meals for both of us. Great evening.

The food was very tasty and for that I would recommend Tavolo to a friend. The service however was not as good. They definitely were having trouble with seating people and dealing with a very large party. This seemed to be affecting the efficiency of the wait staff. Several times we had to proactively ask for some attention to our table and meal.

Service was reasonably fast. Noise level was reasonable so we could talk. Toasted ravioli was crisp, hot, and tasty. Chunky marinara sauce was good. Portions were generous. Chicken scallopine was delicious, more than I could eat, definitely not a low calorie entree. Wine prices also reasonable. Bread was good too.

We usually go for our favorites: Lasagna, Babbo's pizza, Casesar salad or the chicken alfredo type dish. However on Friday 3 of us had the fish special (DEEE licious) and my husband had the chicken and grilled vegetables (heart special). All of the dinners were great. My husband and I split a Caesar and our friends each had their own salad (can't remember which). We had plenty of bread and were kept supplied with cold water as well as refills of iced tea for our friends. Thank you

Reservation was for 6pm. At 4:30 restaurant called to confirm. It was snowing that day, but not enough to make roads hazardous. At 5:58 we parked and the phone rang again. It was the restaurant calling, but I did not pick up since we were already walking in. At this point we were told that the owner called and said to close for the evening. This is absolute BS! Will never consider going there again and as someone who spends 15 to 20k on dining out annually I will make sure to tell everyone about this experience!

My wife and I and a close friend very much enjoyed diner at Tavolo's recently. As usual the food was great and the service was even greater. Our only issue was the noise level. It was loud and made hearing the person across the table difficult. I don't know what solution might help that issue, but if there is one, do it!
