Ate there tonight with another couple. There are a few set items always available, then a specials board that changes. Great service with our waiter from Rome. We had a few of the pasta dishes (house made and definitely great tasting) plus the burrata with peaches and a grilled endive, plus a salad. Everything was wonderful. Had their signature chocolate...

The food and ambiance at this Italian restaurant were delightful. Delicious hand made pasta with tasty sauces and good wine list. Would highly recommend for those that are fussy when it comes to Italian food!

What a lovely lunch we had at this restaurant. Being American and traveling often to Italy, we would normally look for a more Australian spot. However, A Tavola is superb, inventive, Italian, AND Australian (more on an experiential level). All of the dishes were beautifully conceived and executed, the house-made pasta is superb, the staff friendly and unobtrusive, and the... More

What a fabulous place with fresh, hand made pasta - an Italian paradise. The pappardelle wagyu beef was absolutely outstanding and absolutely delicious! We finished up with their signature dessert, Cremino al cioccolato. You won't regret this place, a must try!

Hand made pasta done by the chef at the end of the table, awesome experience. Small but very well delivered menu. Great wine selection. A must!

Eighteen months since the last visit and that's shame. What a great restaurant. Exceptional food. Oysters excellent, the salt cod ravioli amazing but the stand out was the truffle mushroom tagliatelle: sensational! Everything for the four of us was just perfect; thank you.

I heard that foodies agreed quite unanimously that A Tavola serves one of the best pastas in Sydney. We could not agree more. We were very pleased with the taste and texture of the pappardelle as well as the other two seasonal pastas on the special menu. They must all be made with love and care, we reckoned. Highly recommended... More

We have been to this restaurant many times before, but this visit was the first in a few years. The food is constantly of the highest quality (try the Ravioli and go early before it sells out - to die for!) and the service is professional and informative. This was our first time sitting upstairs, which I was a little... More

Beautiful authentic food that transports me back to Italy. Limited menu for both food and drink, they keep it simple and delicious.

A Tavola was established in 2007 in buzzing Darlinghurst on Victoria Street by chef owner Eugenio Maiale. A Tavola quickly earnt a reputation of being one of Sydney's best places to go for authentic Italian pasta. The long marble table is filled with loyal and regular diners - all seduced by the simplicity and honesty of Eugenio's food and especially his love of good pasta.
