We have always dropped into La Tabella when we stay in Airlie Beach as the food, service, coffee and location is consistently sooo good. We were very much satisfied again with our two meals and coffee that we had on our recent visit and look forward to dining there again in the future.

Service was lovely for the most part, however the food was very average. The spaghetti was not fresh, you could tell it was reheated from lunch time. For "authentic" Italian food you would hope they would cook the pasta fresh!

Unfortunately this was some of the worst pasta I've ever had. I ordered the Aglio y olio and it was very dry and seemed like it had been reheated from lunch time. It didn't have much flavour either, and my friend's pasta was much the same. The ambiance and wait staff were very good though. We just would have expected... More

For our last evening in Airlie Beach our hosts suggested we go to La Tabella. Last time I was in Airlie was 10 years ago and this was 6 weeks after Cyclone Debbie had done its worst through Airlie and the Whitsundays. How Airlie has changed. No longer the domain of backpackers the down has a different heart to it... More

Pizza is one of the best i ever had... So tasty! Pasta is good too! Our waitress is a bit loose (She forgot to place our additional order and refused to be flexible on menu) but others were good.

The staff are so friendly! So welcoming it's almost like they are welcoming you into their home for dinner. My husband is a chef and he said the gnocchi was the best he's ever tasted. Will not be disappointed make sure you try it out, it's by far one of the best restaurants in Airlie Beach.

Had a good lunch here. The seafood salad was very enjoyable. The service was friendly and efficient. Authentic Italian and much better than the standard burgers and chips in many other places in Airlie Beach.
