The food was very good as usual but this night the service was lacking. Drinks were slow to arrive, then we were half way done our dinner before we had a chance to order a glass of wine, purportedly to have with dinner!

We have been here several times in the past 6 months. Originally discovered it because U bought a Groupon. We keep coming back because the food is exceptional the servers are personable and all in all it is a wonderful experience. Who needs Federal Hill when there is Tavolo in Smithfield. (Confession we have eaten at Tavolo on Federal Hill which is excellent but I prefer Smithfield)

6 of us friends went out for New Year's Eve dinner. We had reservations for 8:15. We did have to wait for about 1/2 hour even though we had reservations, but considering it was busy, we just went to the bar for a drink. Our meal was delicious and our waitress was wonderful. We sat at a table near the bar so it was very tight and loud. The only thing I was disappointed about was the $7 price for a side order of mashed potatoes. A little pricey for a scoop of potatoes. Everything else was great.

I'd Tavolo's in Smithfield on New Year's and I have eaten here a number of times an rarely been disappointed. The food rarely disappoints and it was great this time. The modest issue here was the long wait (which relates to planning on the restaraunt's side) for our reservation (30+ mins!) and the somewhat harrowed wait staff. I will chalk that up to it being New Year's eve, and will be back.

Are there on New Years Eve. Reservation ran late due to size of parties but staff kept us well informed. Once seated staff ensured that we were taken care of and did not rush us out. Been there several times and this experience was no different than a non holiday night out

Excellent sevice and food. Three of us had seard scallops, sword fish and veal chop. Each was perfectly done. We had to wait 20 minutes past our reservation time.....but it was Christmas Eve....and spent that time seated at the bar talking with other diners. Overall experience - excellent!

Well even though when I made the reservation I checked off Birthday nothing was acknowledged by the waitress. I mentioned it to her and she said I’ll bring you the dessert menu. I realize that it was a very busy night but I think at least an acknowledgement would have been nice. Can’t help if my wife was born on Christmas Eve.

Entrees and desserts were very good. Expresso was a disappointment: expresso cup had no saucer, no twist of lemon, and I think it was microwaved. I recommend a better grade of coffee. Service was very efficient, although a little abrupt.

We liked the visit, although I did not like the food that I chose. My husband and son liked their choices. The ambiance was pleasant after a rather loud group left. I chose steak and fries with truffle oil of which the steak was awesome. The fries were terrible. Greasy and strongly salty. I did not eat them. The server was great, although the service was slow and had limited service due to, I guess, that it was a Monday. They should work to muffle the noise. I would go again. Overall we enjoyed the visit. Overall, it was worth the visit because of the great wine selection.

My girlfriend and I have been here 5 or 6 times and we love coming here for our date nights away from the baby. The Server was very attentive and cocktails were out quick. Tavolo offers incredibly nice wines by the glass and flights are always fun to try. We decided to go with a bottle of the Bledsoe Wine Special and highly recommend it. The nice gentleman with the chef coat gave some other great recommendations that I want to try next time. The Ribeye special was spot on prefect and the bolognese is always so good. The only reason I can't give a 5 star is the shockingly rude hostess. Rude enough for us to contemplate leaving and trying to find a new place to go on our date nights... Once you get by the hostess station everything is so perfect though. Definitely going to bring some friends in to try the awesome food and wine flights.

This restaurant is generally my favorite and worth the 30 mile drive. Nevertheless, on Monday it failed to live up to its usual outstanding mark. I usually visit on Thursday through Sunday. Unfortunately the weeknight bartender couldnt create cocktails as good as weekender. She tried and I respect that. Bread was no match for the weekend bread. Cut thin and somewhat stale. Server didn’t thank us after the bill was paid. All other food was excellent. I love this place. Sorry for knitpicking. I usually praise it considerably.

Thanksgiving. First year of not cooking for the whole family.. I made the reservation for my mother in law, my husband, and my two adult boys. Our reservation was at 2:15 and we were seated at about 3pm. There was one table that had over 20 people that consumed the area. I don’t think the restaurant took into account that after Thanksgiving Dinner people usually like to chill and talk-so maybe that was why it was so hectic. The hostess was very apologetic and I accepted that these things can happen. We were seated and all chose the Turkey Dinner. We got bread and all ordered the soups which were excellent. Most of us finished our soup and the bowls were taken. My son was not finished but got up to use the restroom. We were busy talking and before you know it a female came and took my son’s soup without asking if he was finished. We all just stared at each other and when my son came back I said “I hope you were done with your soup.” He wasn’t. Our meals came and was pretty good I thought. Butternut squash was good, as well as the stuffing. The turkey was served “pull” style. My mother in law did not like this. There were surprise bones etc. A small amount of gravy was sprinkled on the top of turkey. Potatoes were okay. I turned to my mother in law who is 85 & stated she would have eaten the potatoes but there was no gravy. No one looked like they were available to get gravy for her. This is a woman who loves to eat and was looking forward to her 1st restaurant Thanksgiving. We took our leftovers home and she did not. Personally, I thought the servers were overwhelmed and so was the hostess (who did the best she could). There was no real personal attention from servers. The turkey should have been served in larger pieces and not pulled from turkey. It didn’t look appetizing. We were all kind of surprised. My son said it looked like it belonged in soup. I usually love the food here but will not be visiting again for a holiday.
