Richard is probably the greatest waiter we have ever had! He had excellent suggestions, didn't rush us a bit, and always seemed to be anticipating anything we needed. I cannot say enough about his excellent service! The food was top notch as always and we really enjoyed celebrating our anniversary at La Tavola. :)

Had a reservation and got a table right away. Hostess looked mad at the world. Space is really tight so it’s loud. But very nice atmosphere. Carpaccio was delicious wanted more as well as the olives. I had the veal meatballs. Way smaller her than no.246 but good not enough and the spaghetti was over cooked so it was mushy. The mushroom raging was spot on.
The beer was from a can so hot beer not refreshing. Over all the food was tasty server was good and informative.

Poor service with nothing but excuses. Lots of attitude from server who acted like it was a big deal to ask for an ice tea since she forgot it three times. Way to expensive for a so-so meal!

We had a great experience at La Tavola, from the salumi and cheese board and focaccia to the risotto and spaghetti with meatballs, everything was tasty and fresh. We also really enjoyed the cocktails, I highly recommend a French 75.

We enjoyed our meal & will definitely return. But, we were very disappointed when our waiter returned to our table with menu in hand to inform us that they were out of both the Chardonnay wine & the carbonara pasta we ordered.

Our server, Mary Catherine, was phenomenal! My wife and I were celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary and they all treated us as if we were on our honeymoon. Service was impeccable and I can’t even begin to explain how awesome the food was. We will DEFINITELY be going back!

Waited 45 minutes after my reservation for a booth which I had requested over a month in advance. Pasta was very much overcooked. Disappointing experience!

It was my wife’s birthday and I thought it appropriate to take her to her favorite restaurant. They didn’t let us down. It’s our “go to” place.

I travel a great deal and do so all over the country. La Tavola was one of the finest dining experiences I've ever had. The food was brilliant and the service impeccable! If I lived in Atlanta I would be hard pressed not to eat there every weekend.

This was one of my favorite Italian restaurants 15 years ago -- but the food has not maintained the same level of quality. My go-to dish at that time was the duck ragu with paparadelle pasta -- I don't think that has been on the menu for some time. I had not been to La Tavola for at least 5 years and thought I'd try it again. I had the squid ink spaghetti with calamari, olive oil, garlic. The calamari was tasteless and its texture did not add to the dish. My friend had the tomato-lobster ravioli which she enjoyed. The nice thing to see was that the ambience and interior maintained its classic, comforting bistro feel. Service was attentive, prompt, and accommodating -- that counts for a lot.

I have been dining at LaTavola as long as it has been in business! My experiences have always been consistently superior. Tonight I enjoyed the burrata with heirloom tomatoes and ribeye steak. My friend enjoyed the roasted chicken. Preparation was exceptional. Thank you for everything.

One of our best meals ever at our favorite restaurant! The Manti pasta starter was wonderful with corn purée stuffed small pasta pockets surrounded by a special pesto sauce, diced squash and baby tomatoes. We mopped the sauce up with the great Italian bread! Our entree of swordfish (the night’s special) sat atop a delicious tomato sauce and shiitake mushrooms - the flavors were fabulous! Since it was a birthday, we shared the boccone dolce, a toasted brown sugar meringue with creamy vanilla ice cream and fresh sliced peaches. Our server Emily was terrific, making great suggestions and offering attentive and friendly service. Another true mark of this restaurant’s customer focus was that two managers stopped by to see how we liked our dinners. Another great evening at La Tavola!
