La Tavola has been in Virginia Highlands a long time. It has the charm of an authentic neighborhood trattoria. There is a large back porch that is covered. We sat through a big storm and did not get wet. On to the food. Breaded swordfish with a unique flavor. Tagliatelle with a great bolognese sauce. Linguini with a strong mushroom... More

Amazing food & wine. The squid spaghetti are my personal favorite! Very kind & professional stuff. It's very popular so I'd recommend to reserve a table in time, especially for the weekend.

My wife and I visited on Mother's Day and were initially told that there were no tables since we had no reservation (we expected this). We walked out looking for another option and the hostess tracked us down saying that there was a table open on the patio if we cared to sit outside. Kudos to her for coming after... More

Would absolutely recommend for couples. Very romantic. Authentic Italian meals (like pasta with pepper and cheese) with gluten free options on the menu for those who want it.

We wanted to eat here with friends driving in from a distant suburb but plans weren’t finalized until three days prior to that Saturday. Let this be a lesson…reserve way ahead! The only time we could get was 5:30 p.m. outside on the back balcony, or, after 9 p.m. The time and location were fine with us, especially as the... More

Took our family of 6 for a birthday dinner. Service was terrible. Four out of six dishes were not good. Pasta was over cooked which is sad for a restaurant known for its pasta. Won't be returning.

Recently went to La Tavola while visiting Atlanta and was enjoyed dining there. The food was very good and the meals were reasonably portioned. The service was attentive without being intrusive. Dined outside where there was no appreciable noise level.

We enjoyed the place. Nice atmosphere and attentive service. The food was fine. We shared a fair caesar salad. It had powdered parmesan cheese which surprised me. Tsk tsk. The wife had the roasted chicken which was impeccable. Perfect. Daughter had spaghetti and meatballs which was just fine. Nothing special. I had the Tagliatelle was was about like the spaghetti....

La Tavola is part of the Fifth Group Restaurant group and it is a STAR in the group. The food is always fresh and consistent. I have been going for years and have never had a bad meal

I have lived in Italy for a long time and this is one of the few places in the US that brings the good memories back. The waiters are polite and professional. The restaurant is not in downtown or midtown and you will need a ride to reach there. The place is nice and cozy. The food is delicious and... More
