My friend's hubby was confined at St Vincent's hospital and we would always pass this small restaurant with a long table inside. We were intrigued by the crowd ever night so we decided to give it a try. My friend had the mushroom gnocchi and...More

This place has fantastic service and amazing food. The prices are a bit pricey but you pay for what you get. We spent our 8 year anniversary at this venue and it was the perfect choice!

No booking, but they made seats available at the long communal table. Wine waiter was particularly patient and keen to ensure we were happy with what we had chosen. Quite noisy but still able to have a decent conversation. Food was up to the mark!

This was my first time here. I loved the main dining table where several groups sat. My friend and I sat at the end of the table, near the kitchen, just after the lovely Italian waiter took my coat and hung it up for me....More

The worst restaurant I have ever visited. The food & service was terrible. The place is poorly laid out & crowded.

We experienced efficient and friendly service here. The food was very tasty but most importantly the pasta was freshly made and delicious. There are so many good restaurants in Sydney it's hard to choose when there on holiday-we were pleased we tried this Italian one.

One of my favourite Italian restaurants in the world. A Tavola is authentic, fabulous and very special. You feel transported here in a very good way. Impeccable food and service. The stuffed olives are straight out of Ascoli Pienza. Amazing!

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.
Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small

Do not think It is BYO, but ring to check. This place is more of fine dining therefore fully licensed.

If you're after an individual table I'd recommend booking. I've only ever been as a walk-in and have always been seated on the communal table (Darlinghurst). Whilst I haven't requested an individual table as a walk-in, I... More

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.
