One of the best restaurants in little Italy. Pasta was delicious. My gf loved the tiramisu martini. Good staff.
La Tavola is a subtle gem in Baltimore. The food is always excellent as well as the service. It is understated which makes it a great value. When you want some great comfort food, it is a go to.
crab bruschetta was delicious. Entrees were right sized and tasty
Excellent seafood dishes
My boyfriend and I come here just for their “the w and w” (wine and whisky) drink. It’s amazing. Secondly, the chef comes up with different specials that are always fantastic. We loved the zucchini and fish poppers. Lastly, the wait staff is so knowledgeable of the menu that he could answer any question I had. I highly recommend!
Our server Chris was outstanding!
Wonderful Food and Wonderful Desserts! Great staff, warm friendly ambience.
very good food and service as always, I have been going there for some years!
Great experience. Our waiter Daniel was excellent but seemed a bit harried since he had so many tables. His recommendations were spot on. We will be back.
The veal was tender and delicious! My husband had pasta with shrimp, scallops and mussels. He said it was excellent!
It was a great experience and they took appropriate measures for safety. I felt very comfortable the meal was incredible, awesome cocktails, and the waitstaff was amazing.
Service was great. Food amazing
Celebrated my daughter’s birthday turning 12. She wanted authentic Italian food. We didn’t know what to order and asked waitress what to get. I had squid ink pasta for the first time and it was absolutely delicious!! Will be back. Also, we got to try several different wines for taste testing. Great waitress....forgot her name.
We started with the soft shells crabs with Chef Carlo's housemade sauce. They were absolutely delicious! After I had a fresh mesclun salad with shrimp and a lite dressing. My companion had pasta in a housemade red sauce with linguine and seafood galore. Maki our server was very pleasant and attentive. Our meal was wonderful.
Great service, amazing food!
Given the covid restrictions the service was excellent as was the food. Can't wait to go back.
We are so happy LaTavola has been open to diners. We live in the neighborhood and missed visiting your restaurant. The food is exceptional and the value is excellent, especially given the financial issues with having to shut down. The fresh fish in parchment paper has never let us down. It is delicious! The bruschetta is excellent. The service is always very attentive and friendly. Looking forward to our next visit
Everything was wonderful. Our server Daniel was very attentive and knowledgeable. This was the first time my guest had been to the restaurant and was so impressed with the food, service and the visit from Chef Carlo. The food was delicious and perfect.
Everything was very nice on our anniversary dinner. Maki was a great host and was very timely on her visits to the table to check on things.
Everything was perfect. The waiter was pleasant, on his game and extremely helpful. I highly recommend eating their. You won’t be disappointed.
La Tavola is wonderful, it's become my go to Little Italy restaurant. I recommend them to everyone, because they make you feel at home. The food is on point, cooked to perfection and so fresh. I have always had such relaxing, comfortable, and enjoyable times there. Try it, if your sick of trendy restaurants, and want old school Italian and old school Little Italy vibes.
Best Italian restaurant in Baltimore! House made pasta, farm to table. Everything was delicious from appetizer to dessert. Service was exceptional (Dan and Maki).
Great food great service!
Went there for an anniversary dinner. Got the special and the carpaccio, carpaccio was pretty bland but I've never had it before, so that could just be how it is? The special was great, it was a whole fish in a sauce with spinach, artichoke, and diced tomatoes. Dessert was vanilla and espresso gelato. Everything was great, they have a lot of specials during the weekdays, so I would definitely come back.
Love this place and had great service!!
The food and drinks were excellent. They even have homemade gluten free pasta which is hard to find and it was delicious. We will definitely be going back in the future!
What a great little spot in Little Italy! We were greeted quickly and happily. The menu isn't extensive but it does not have to be. The dishes were amazing for every course and the wines perfect to pair. I would highly recommend La Tavola for all looking for a food authentic Italian dinner.
Our server, Chris was very helpful. We were dining here for the first time and had 2 young girls with us.
The food was very good and the wine selection was good as well. We enjoyed our meals and we were delightfully surprised when the chef visited with us. We will definitely return, g
Had a lovely dinner during our brief stay. Restaurant was a little dated in decor, could improve the lighting to create ambiance. The food was delicious. Service with Chris on point. Food was delicious. It did not rise to feeling “special” but it was positive overall.
Long time, experienced waitstaff. Very friendly and knowledgeable regarding the menu and wine selections. The food is exceptional. Has been regular stop for many years. Thanks!
Very very good food in a traditional setting. Wonderful value for the cost. The service was also excellent.
The food was great; the service was amazing. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. Plan to return and would reccomend without hesitation.
Great food, wonderful service; even great co-diners. Awesome experience
Chef Carlo is the man!
His fresh fish baked in parchment paper with cherry stone clams and scallops is to die for!
Pasta is fresh! His sauces are legendary!!!!
Worth every penny
This place was amazing the staff was so friendly and warm. The food was spectacular (best calamari I ever had), Anthony even played with our 18 month old son for 10 min so that the adults could enjoy the delicious food while it was hot. We will definitely be coming back :)
Great food, pleasant, low noise level, knowledge wait staff, overall a wonderful experience.
It was our first visit but won’t be our last. From our initial contact to see about reservations to when we were leaving after dinner the staff was amazing! Super friendly, knowledgeable and catered to our every need. Maki was our server and she really knew the menu and made sure we all got exactly what we wanted! The chef was amazing, everything was fresh and delicious. My only wish would be that they were located closer to my house 😊
Wednesday half off bottles of wine made it extra reasonable. Great food!!!!
Overall - we found La Tavola to be nice. Our mozzarella appetizer was good - our mains were also good the pasta with shrimp, scallops, mussels and clams was good, the bison steak special was OK. Usually I order my steaks cooked to chef's recommendation - which in my experience is usually medium rare - in this case our server asked - and I replied - medium. It came out rare or at least a bit under medium rare - which I don't mind - but don't ask you are not going to do it to customer order - additionally the presentation was sliced so there is no question the kitchen should have seen a gap between what was requested and what was prepared. Again, if the kitchen would have suggested rare - I would have taken that suggestion.
I think this place could be outstanding, first impressions were good and will visit again when looking for Italian seafood and fish.
We are from out of town and visit La Tavola whenever we are in Baltimore. In addition to the vast menu choices they always have several specials - all in all, making it difficult to make a choice - but, we have never been disappointed with our choices! Our server, Daniel, was very knowledgeable and personable. I had the saltimbocca and my wife had their Linguini Tailegio - Daniel said it was a favorite of the wait staff and she figured they should know what is good - they, and she, were right!
