We were a table of four, and as a testament to A Tavola, a significant portion of the discussion was on food and most of the eating involved sharing. Given the suburban plaza setting the decor makes you forget this fact. It’s modern/sleek/elegant and my...More

The expansion looks great. Only 2-3 servers and you would have never known. The food was great. The atmosphere was great. And the service excellent. The restaurant was full which doesn’t surprise me. It’s all about the little details there.

We went for lunch the day of the snow storm, so only four tables were occupied. The kitchen is open, so you do hear some noise. There is no carpeting or tablecloths. The food is excellent though. Hope this helps.

Description
A TAVOLA means "to the table". Regardless of our cultural background, when the call goes out for everyone to come "to the table" we all understand that it's time to eat! We sit...We eat...We drink...We come together as a family. So, here we say "A TAVOLA!" Come and enjoy flavourful cuisine inspired by a variety of Mediterranean regions. While working in partnership with local Durham farmers, our Executive Chef, Vito Clemente, will be showcasing his undeniable talent by handcrafting all his signature dishes with true Mediterranean flare. The aroma of freshly baked breads, pastries and wonderful spices and herbs will fill the air, guaranteed to open up your appetite. We also have a variety of GLUTEN FREE pastas, breads and pastries. Chef Vito Clemente promises that you will never leave his table hungry! We opened our doors on February 14, 2014, but our dreams of creating a Mediterranean style bistro, showcasing farm fresh and local ingredients, has been a long time coming. The most important thing to A TAVOLA BISTRO is to bring QUALITY and HONESTY to all our food and service. We are focused on being a leader in the food and service industry, showing you the importance of slow food, not fast food...Handcrafted, not store bought...Fresh, not processed...By using local ingredients that support our Canadian sustainability. We offer the best dining experience in Durham - you get special one-on-one attention. We have a lot of fun here, which means our employees are happy. Our customers are really important to us, and our friendly, inviting and knowledgeable staff makes certain that you are treated just like family and you are 100% satisfied.
