La Tavola Trattoria Ratings and Reviews

LaTavola is just hands down our favorite. The food, atmosphere, people outshine them all. It just feels like home but in New York, San Francisco or Boston. Even though I've learned to make the squid in calamari at home that is passable it is still a treat to get theirs. New fall dishes are amazing. The music and vibe are perfect. It is nice to be known when we walk in, Caitlin, Brian, Chris, Will are fantastic. Can't wait to return.

Great food, great service, lovely atmosphere! We love La Tavola because we never have a bad meal there and the service is always excellent. The flavors are unique and wonderful, from the mushroom ragu to the veal saltimbocca, and it's great to be able to get pastas in a small or large portion. We had semifreddo for the first time and it was yummy as well! All in all a wonderful restaurant for any occasion!

I eat out regularly in Atlanta (work in Buckhead and live in Midtown); this was my first time dining at La Tavola and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Justin's preparation of his food was top notch - perhaps the finest meal I have eaten in Atlanta. Bon Appetite!

Squid ink pasta was even better than the last time I had it- the perfect amount of spice! The milk braised pork ravioli was RIDICULOUSLY good! The cannolis with shaved chocolate and candied orange zest were the perfect ending! Service was good. Love La Tavola!

Good meal, but certain things were overdone . . . for example, the Caesar's salad was overdressed and the pasta was overcooked. Other than that, our server was wonderful and the other food ordered was tasty & satisfying.

I was disappointed to see they had taken the lasagna off the menu. Would have given them 5 stars if they had offered some kind of lasagna - it is outstanding no matter what version they do. If there are not fresh vegetables in season to choose from, why not go back to their original version they used to offer. It was phenomenal! Other than that, the dinner was delicious, as usual.

LaTavola has been my favorite restaurants for well over a decade but lately I feel like the food has been a little less than I I have come to expect. In the past I've had difficulty choosing because everything on the menu looks so good. My last two visits I've had difficulty choosing because nothing looked really great.
What I eventually chose was a pasta dish that was a little bit spicy and had some pork in it but neither of attributes were described in the menu.
My companion - dining at LaTavola for the first time - chose the bolognese. It was solidly delicious but nothing "wow" enough to get him to want to run back there anytime soon.
The gnocchi and ravioli were not on the menu and in my opinion a bolognese and spaghetti & meatballs are not different enough to appear on a well curated menu.
Missing the La Tavola of 3-5 years ago.

Was disappointed in cocktails and wine. Martinis were skimpy. I asked for a cucumber garnish- NO. Red wine is served hot. Needed to place red wine in ice to cool it to recommended 58-60 degrees. Was surprised with all this.

Again my wife and I went on our Friday night date or family night and Italian was our target and boy did La.Tavola Trattoria fit the bill the squid ink spaghetti is the best I have eternal had the roasted garlic potatoes although a little too much salt I could stop eating them. And what the use of going for Italian and not have a meat ball or two well I did the veal meat meat balls were absolutely Devine. However. The best part of our experience at la Tavola was the DESERT we had real oven baked cheese cake with wild cherry puree and all at a reasonable price . I have to say last night was the first time I saw my wife eat risotto and mushroom and did not pick them out and throw them away she though she was eating some kind of weird type of Italian meat and she can't wait to go to Italy now. Thank La Tavola.

La Tavola is our favorite birthday and anniversary spots. The service is top notch, and the food is incredible. They have delicious specials which never disappoint, but I am a fan of their regular items, like their pasta and risotto dishes. Whether you are visiting Atlanta or just live around the corner, it will not disappoint.

Everything was amazing - both the food and super friendly and attentive service. Pasta is homemade and you can tell. I had the pasta infused with ink sauce as an appetizer which was great, and would have been a good main course choice as well. Came with the family of 5, everyone was happy. Glad we reserved ahead- not a large place and not too many tables to accommodate a larger group.

My wife and I's favorite restaurant. Top notch service with knowledgeable wait staff and extensive wine list.
Everything on the menu is delicious and and always of exceptional quality and freshness.
Tucked away in the Virginia Highland area with free valet parking available for dinner guests.
Even if you think you're not a fan of fine Italian food, you will love everything you order at this restaurant.

Always enjoy the food here but this time I felt like Ambiance and Service was lacking. The food is always changing up and I love the seasonal items here. The restaurant itself is a bit crowded but overall they make use of the space they have! On this occasion, we reserved a table for 2 & it was clearly a date night, but they ended up putting two people (walk-ins) in the table next to us (it's a very tiny space & there were other open tables around). We ordered before the two people next to us (they ordered the EXACT same thing as us) and they got their food before us. Wasn't too pleased about having to wait so long for our entrees & I didn't feel the waiter was too attentive at our table anyways. Overall I have no complaints about the food or wine, just not sure I'd plan a date night here again and may even prefer ordering for take out! The place is cozy & they are knowledgeable about their menu & wine list which I appreciate!
