Went here for an anniversary dinner, I actually had reservations at another place at first but switched it here last minute. Very nice place for a date and/or special occasion, I like the small intimate feel it has as well. The mushroom ragu was good, I preferred the tagliatelle bolognese. Our service was outstanding ---Anna gave great suggestions and was very attentive.

This is an excellent and comfortable spot to dine when in Atlanta. Located in a great older neighborhood, I love the food and the staff. I've dined here half dozen times over last year - this is one of my go-to spots when I travel to Atlanta. I highly recommend it.

Gave value low rate due to our appetizer being $16.00 ! Shocked for sea scallops and argula (that was used from the onsite garden boxes)...But still one of my favorite restraunts!!

I feel that the person at the reception could be more warm and should have given me more choice for the table. Maybe I wasn't too warm either as I was dying of hot weather. Also, the brunch is expensive. With four cocktails and two dishes, the check came out to be over $60. Pricey!!
Favorite Italian Place
This is by far my favorite Italian place in Atlanta. Would absolutely recommend.
Amazing food and service.
Amazing food and service.
Better than Italy
I must confess. I have had bad meals in Italy. I am always expecting the best and have been disappointed frequently. Not so tonight. Tonight's meal tasted like I expected meals in Italy to taste. There were four of each and each of us raved about the food. The best risotto ever (Georgia peach risotto), the best swordfish ever, the best bolognese ever, the best SALAD ever. Wines available by the glass were impressive. This was the first of many nights I intend to spend here.
We went to La Tavola for the first time and fell in love with the place!! Everyone from the hostess to the waiter to the chef were all so attentive and knowledgeable. The food was excellent as was the atmosphere. Wish we lived closer... It's over an hour drive but we will be back!
Our servicer Jennifer was excellent. She described the menu selection in a way that made out mouths water. Our dinners were fantastic. The bread, strawberry appetizer, gnocchi sardi and saltimbocce alla romana were to die for. Our cocktails were also very good. I had the Basil limonada and it was very refreshing. W drove 70 miles and it was well worth the drive.

La Tavola is one of our favorites! Always a great selection on the menu that is changed up seasonally. The staff is always very knowledgeable and very attentive. Great food, great service!
The maitre'd held our reservation although we were ccaught in traffic and 30 minutes late. Nice. My date had a bouillabaise type dish that she liked. I had risotto that had very little of the meat or whatever was added. Would definitely order something else next time. But I would return.

It goes without saying, Fifth Group brings the best restaurants to the city. That being said, La Tavola, is one of the best Italian restaurants in Atlanta. You might be thinking, "Italian brunch?, I don't think so." However, do yourself a favor and check it out. From delicious homemade sausages, charcuterie, frittatas, and pastas, you can't go wrong. It's the perfect brunch paired with tasty bloody Mary's and mimosas. David Hobbs was managing and made sure we were taken care of, Randall, our server, made excellent recommendations from food to drinks. Thanks, Chef Justin for your excellent and perfect touches on your menu. Paired with a beautiful patio setting in the quaint Virginia-Highlands, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect dining experience.
La Tavola never disappoints.
Came for brunch with six others and everyone raved about the food and the service. I couldn't be happier that I can walk to La Tav in 10 minutes. Neighborhood gem for sure.

Great pasta. Seriously, get the mushroom truffle pasta, it's so good. I went with 2 others and we all enjoyed the food greatly. The service could've been a bit better, but it was quite busy. It was also a bit overpriced ($16 for maybe 4oz of pasta with no meat). Overall, very good though.
Room is good, service was friendly and attentive. But unfortunately the eggs were cold, to the point that they weren't very appetizing. I went ahead and ate them anyway because I was with people and didn't want to make everyone wait on me to have my meal re-prepared.

Anna was fantastic! Excellent knowledge of the menu and just attentive enough.
Lamb Ragu with Mint Strozzapreti
Great Italian specialties cooked from scratch. I have been a patron for several years, and have shared this gem of a restaurant with dozens of friends. Any time I am in Atlanta, I go to La Tavola. I always get the Veal Meat Balls and Marinated Olives. They are must haves. Their selection of Charcuterie is always very good. During my visit Tuesday night, I had the Casarecce. It is a braised lamb ragu, with mint strozzapreti (made in house), tossed with pistachios, and topped with fresh grated ricotta salata. Very nice buttery finish. It is lick your plate awesome! Chef Justin Jordan is passionate about his food, and it shows. His take on Italian food is inspiring. Really. His Sugos and Ragus are always spot on. Bottom line......Great Food, Great Service and Very Friendly Staff. You can't go wrong. ***If Chef ever puts the lamb belly on the menu again, GET IT!. It is to die for!

It was Mother's Day and they seated us right on our reservation time. The sever was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Our drinks were always full. Our daughter who is a very picky eater finished her plate in entirety. We had a lovely afternoon.
Overall it's good not great...
Went there for Mother's Day...nothing spectacular hence nothing much to say about it...

We love coming here for special occasions. Last time we had the sweetest server. This time our server was very snooty and kind of pompus. While I appreciate his knowledge of food and wine. He can explain. In a way we can understand and not sound like a snotty know it all.

This was our first visit to the restaurant. The Food was excellent. As an Italian, i am pretty selective as to where I will each out for Italian food. I was a bid disappointed in the portions though. Both my wife and I finished our meals and were still hungry. When serving pasta, that generally cost about $1 per pound, bringing home leftovers is an easy way to allow your customers to feel the value was well worth the $18-$25 price. Again, the taste was excellent, just don't like leaving hungry when you drop $100 for dinner. Wine and dessert were also great.

We are always on the quest for the holy grail of Italian food.!We finally found it! There isn't a negative word I can say about this place except that the night had to end! From the moment we walked in and we were greeted by a lovely young lady and young man. They were so pleasant and welcoming. The place is small but the service and food more than makes up for it. Our server Jennifer was OUTSTANDING! The way she described the food with such detail and passion made us want to order everything on the menu. We go out every weekend and hands down she has been the best server that we have ever had! We will definitely go back to la tavola. You can't go wrong with what you order. The wine, cocktails, appetizers,pasta, entrees and desserts all to die for. We ❤️ this place!
Have been dining here for several years. Just great food all the time. Have never been disappointed with the food or service. Great neighborhood restaurant in the Virginia Highlands area of Atlanta.
It's always a good time
I love their special menus, they always have something unique, and their seafood days are awesome. Love the homemade pasta. Highly recommend the back patio.deck if the weather is nice.

We were visiting Atlanta from out of town and loved sitting on the back patio in a small neighborhood spot away from the hustle of downtown and Buckhead. The service and staff were incredibly friendly and knowledgable. A seafood sausage with pasta and cream sauce was a special-- there are no words for how amazing that was. Everything was delicious that I tasted but I have to give an extra nod to the veal saltimbocca. Loved the meal, the ambiance, the people and the neighborhood.
Business dinner for 3
Our server, I think his name was Mike (??), was a joy. He had a beard, very gregarious in a good and appropriate way. Lot of fun. Food was excellent, perfect evening to sit outside with a glass of wine. Overall a very pleasant experience.

Service was fantastic Will was very good and engaging. Food was delicous and was as close to authentic Italian that I have had compared to Milan itself. Noise level on the patio was bit louder than my manager would have liked but I felt it was good. Excellent wine list for the true Italians. Two gentlemen from Milan Italy said it was GOOD which is the first time I have heard that from them in US at any italian Resturant.
Not Enough Superlatives
There isn't much more that we can say about LaTavola, it continues to be as good as it gets from food, to service, to ambiance. While we usually favor the pasta dishes this time it was lamb chops and veal. My wife has had lamb from Florida to Maine to Arizona to Las Vegas and these were the best she has ever had. My veal was outstanding. As stated before the atmosphere is such that we feel like we are in New York. Perfect background music. Servers and management recognize us and always stop to say hi. It just doesn't get any better.
