It is not often that I give 5 stars but our dining experience at La Tavola on a Friday night was worthy of the 5 star review. We started with the Garlic knots and Bruschetta. Both were very tasty and wonderful! I had the lobster...More

Believe the reviews. This is authentic Italian cuisine. We knew it was great from the minute we saw the steady steam of "locals" picking up their carry-out. We were not disappointed. The menu is extensive. The food delicious. The space is small so don't hesitate...More

Cozy, comfortable venue. So good you usually need a reservation to get in. Great place for a special event dinner.

Small, quaint place, but with great Italian food, and served with BIG portions. I think they only take reservations, but not positive. We had the Cavatini Bolognese and Chicken Fettucini Alfredo. Only downside is a limited beer selection.

Dinner was great. I had the lasagna (took some home). We had the brushetta as an appetizer and my husband had the mushroom ravioli. It was all good. Our server was great as well. Great special occasion/date night place!

The best Italian in town without a doubt. For lunch try the chicken caesar salad, it is large portion very filling with a caesar dressing that I've never found anywhere else. Definitely home made, very good. My son got a Calzone, which also is fantastic.

Delicious original recipes! Sauces are all home made and awesome. Antipasti and Chef salads are huge and delicious-the house dressing is a balsamic vinaigrette that is so flavorful. Fabulous warm crusty bread, pizza, calzones, etc. Bring your appetite and be sure to make a reservation...More
