We ate lunch here for my first time anyway, the service was quick and attentive, thanks to Aston, a very good waiter. We had the soup of the day, Creamed Zucchini, excellent tasting. I had the Lasagna Bolognese, very good as well, both meat and cheese flavor in each bite, with plenty of sauce. Overall a very nice experience for... More

Great staff, great ambiance, great wines, OK beers, and OK appetizers. If you are interested in drinking some nice wine in a very relaxing setting, this is the place for you. If you are interested in light appetizers, this is the place for you. If you are hungry and/or like good beers such as porters and stouts, this may not... More

Always enjoy visiting this Restaurante! Great ambiance, great patio, great service. This evening was not busy. Service was slow and distracting. Cocktails were not as generous--wines a lesser pour! Our flatbread was tough and difficult to cut--plus buried in arugula! We recommend friends to this location for the pastas and flatbreads-- But will now re-think this decision.

OK we are from New York and an Italian family. Our Lasagna has ricotta cheese. We have meatballs. So when (an Italian restaurant) said sorry no meatballs, we were set back. However, hunger and a wonderful waitress introduced us to a very good meal--different but very good. The lentil soup excelled. The garlic and oil pasta was terrific and believe... More

We met friends at Tavolina. We had thought it was a high class restaurant we were anxious try. I have had better pasta in a chain restaurant.

Our son had highly recommended Tavolino to us, so we were excited to try it. Its decor is modern and chic. Service was very good, and food delicious. Close to our resort, and easy to get to.

If you like more than pasta in you're Italian dinning you'll like Tavolino. A wide variety of meat and fish entrees to go along with the traditional Italian favorites. A very pleasant, quiet ambiance. The service is impeccable.

Beautiful place in the Foothills with excellent food, service, and an extensive wine list. Make sure you ask for the "other wine list" that will list a variety of great domestic wines in addition to the Italian wines on the menu. We had the butternut squash ravioli in a brown butter sauce that were excellent and a good sized serving... More
