We decided to dine in here because of the ambiance and the only restaurant that wasn't jampacked with diners. We love the place as well as the service they provide. We also like the dishes despite having limited selections but the serving is worth every...More

Food was really good with sizeable portions. But what makes this place better is their service. Without asking they tried to hail a cab for me and when that didn't work they called an Uber using their own account. Thank you!

Place lacks aircon. Had to cut short what would have been a lovely lunch due to the heat being unbearable! Sauna level heat! Staff did not do anything.

In the vein of a traditional Italian Trattoria – a casual, local gathering place for food, friends and wine – our menu reflects the purity of tradition by relying on the classical and effortless approach. The simple purity of our inspiration comes from the superior ingredients and technique of the Trattoria.Everything on the menu at Tavolata is handcrafted, using only the finest local and imported ingredients. Our pasta is made fresh daily from 100% semolina from Italy using our own bronze die extruder. Unlike the store bought pasta most restaurants use, you will find the delightful chewiness of freshly extruded pasta a wonderful experience. From the fermentation of the dough to the homemade toppings, you'll certainly agree that our hand-tossed pizzas are irresistible.The joy of eating, both simply and well, while among good company is the aspiration of Tavolata. It is with this simple thought that we invite you to sit, dine an enjoy life with those you love at our Tavolata!
