A Tavola

Farm to Table, Eclectic Italian
Chef Vittorio Ettore, owner of Bistro 5 has opened a new Restaurant in Winchester. A Tavola, literally translates to “at the table”, an expression used in Italy as a dinner calling to gather everyone around the table to enjoy delicious food, and each other. Born to be the more casual sister restaurant to Bistro 5, A Tavola will be serving an eclectic Italian menu featuring “Piattini”. These small plates will be used to showcase an array of charcuterie, artisan cheeses, fish and vegetables, to pair perfectly with an exclusively Italian wine list. Additionally Chef will be offering unique catering options.

"I was here last month and often over the winter. The place is nice and close to home when weather or traffic is really bad. The restaurant is small and cute with these old looking tables. The menu is very limiting as there are only about a half dozen items on it. However, the cooks have been very accommodating swapping sides for me and my gluten and dairy free guest. Also, they have gluten free pasta! The cost can be a bit on the higher end, but not much more than most restaurants in this category. The big draw back is the limited menu and those hard seats. I think they could use some seat pads."

"Recommended highly by Frances of the Griffin Museum, A Tavola provided a small and unusual menu of delicious food and Italian wines. Halibut, glazed grilled steak, mixed green salad and EVOO cake with basil frozen yogurt for dessert. I'll go back as soon as possible!"

"Excellent food in the rustic trattoria style, small and cosy environment, kitchen is right there "behind the bar" so you can see its all cooked fresh from scratch. Not cheap, but you get definitely what you pay for. Perfect for that special birthday or anniversary."

"I have been to A Tavola on many occasions, and each time am so pleased with the overall dining experience. The menu is filled with delicious pastas, and meat and fish entrees filled with flavor and expertly prepared by the chef and his team. Ingredients are farm fresh and bursting with goodness. Always a memorable meal."

"This was our second time visiting Tavola, the appetizers were delicious, the fish special was a bit overcooked but well seasoned. Pasta dish was also quite tasty but not spectacular. For $150 for two, somehow the whole experience left us feeling a little underwhelmed. Limited menu choices."

"We had a Dine Out Boston menu. Liked the idea of picking 3 courses off the menu versus limited choices. The "Pig Roast Entree" was excellent. Mangale Pasta not so much. Walnuts and Goat Cheese ingredients in a heavy pesto pasta basically missing. First course, grilled octupus and mixed green salad very good. Dessert very good. Overall a good value. Excellent service and nice table."

"We ordered mostly specials. The charred octopus special stood out because the charred outside was so deep and flavorful, yet the inside remained moist."

"walked into this restaurant at 5:30 PM with a reservation and there was no hostess to seat us for a bout 5 to 7 minutes. The tables are plain hardwood about 2' x 3' wide. The chairs are totally wood, and particularly hard and uncomfortable. On the blackboard the specials of the day were listed, and we could not see to read them from our table, even though we have 20/20 vision. There was one waitress on staff who seemed experienced and the second who seem incompetent. With that said after 20 minutes and no one taking our order, we decided to walk out before being further tortured.
To us it seems they have a very limited menu, which is overpriced, especially considering the hard chairs and mini tables, and lack of atmosphere. We do live in Winchester so it would be nice to have another neighborhood restaurant that we enjoy. I am afraid it is not this one! Maybe the food is great but I don't think we will ever know."

"We decided to give A Tavola a try since we live in the neighborhood; we were quite disappointed. We ordered the pasta with clams and an appetizer portion of a pasta dish with pesto. Nearly all of the clams were gritty and this seemed amateurish for such a well established owner/chef. Further, my appetizer portion of the Mafaldi pasta was a good portion, however, it was drowned in the pesto and contained only a dime sized dollop of goat cheese and approximately 1 walnut. We won't be back."

"The 4 of us came here last night and we had an excellent time. It was the first time for the couple we brought with us and they were truly impressed. We shared a couple of apps to start and they were delicious: oysters & grilled squid. For entrees, every dish was just as perfect: Rigatoni Bolognese, rabbit special w/ pancetta, and my favorite Bucatini! Their in-house pastas are one of the best in the burbs! We also had a couple of bottles of red wine, both were Montepulciano, one had a lighter note than the other, and both bottles were equally really good. Our waitress was very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable about the dinner menu, as well as the wine menu. Will certainly come back!"

"My second time at A Tavola confirmed that this is a rare gem. The menu is totally unique, the cooking is creative without being pretentious or fussy and the presentation is exquisite, a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. The Raddichio Treviso salad with grilled peach was heavenly and the plum tart with hops syrup and goat cheese gelato was beyond heavenly - off the charts! The wine suggestions were perfect. I love the rustic bistro decor, and the lively atmosphere that indicated people were enjoying themselves. Obviously this has become a favorite restaurant of mine!"

"This is my 3rd dining experience here. Just because pasta is homemade doesn't mean it's great. The rigatoni was not only overpriced but it was cooked more than al dente "to the bite". Simply put the pasta was hard and unpalatable. The bolognese sauce was ok/fair. The chicken was good. The waitress had a bland personality to match the taste of the food. However, I still tipped her well. We will not return."
