It was a great experience, as we've come to expect from La Tavola. The swordfish was exquisite, probably the best we've had. There was a bit of confusion with the steak entrée, where I was told it would be a ribeye, but when it came out I was told it was a strip. No matter, it was a quality cut, cooked perfectly, with a delicious sauce. Late in the evening, staff was sometimes busy with side work and there was a delay before our plates were cleared. However, everyone was very friendly, especially the bartender who introduced us to a new variation of a favorite liqueur. The tiramisu was a superb finish to our meal. Can't wait to come back, La Tavola is our favorite restaurant in Atlanta.

I had not been down to Virginia Highlands in years, but my grandson just moved into an apartment there and we went out to celebrate. Our server Richard was awesome, explaining everything so well. I ordered risotto and branzini; my grandson had the spaghetti and meatballs. This after perfect negronis and a wonderful small loaf of bread. Dessert was a lovely confection! The food was 5 Star. ...we had a small glitch, and it was handled sublimely! Not only will we recommend La Tavola, we will encourage our friends to enjoy an evening in this terrific classic.

Marvelous dinner. We came for a special occasion but asked ourselves afterward why we don’t enjoy this fabulous place more often. It’s not inexpensive, but you don’t resent the bill when it arrives, because every bite or sip was just wonderful!

Veal meatballs and farro salad very good. Tagliatelle needed more sauce and meat. Tiramisu was bland. Service was exceptional and staff worked together to ensure our table was well taken care of. Have been here numerous times and thought previous meals were better. Still recommend as a nice Italian restaurant.

We chose to sit outside on the balcony and were able to have a nice conversation. The meatball appetizer was delicious. The Focacia bread was buttery and light and airy. Very good! We all enjoyed our meals: roasted chicken, spaghetti and meatballs and Tagliatelle. All were Delicious. The neighborhood this is located in seems to be a trendy hotspot, very quaint and a quick Uber ride from Midtown. Highly Recommend!
