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.

This was our second time at A Tavalo. The first time it was a little too small, crowded and noisy. This time they had just opened their expanded section and it seems more than twice as big. The service is very good and the waitress we had seemed to know the food and wine very well and was able to answer questions and provide advice based on our preferences. The food itself was very good. The menues are basically Italian and they specialize in seafood dishes

I am so pleased with the quality of this restaurant. Their food and service were excellent. They willingly adjust for dietary needs and are not only prepared for it, they do it with a sense of humour that puts everyone at ease. Their patience and attention to the younger children that were part of our birthday dinner also allowed us to enjoy our amazing food without stress.
Thank you again for a memorable evening.

Food quality is very good. Try the fish of the day or the seafood linguine. Service is awesome as well.

Please update your status. Friends and I took a $25 cab ride to your restaurant only to find out that you are closed for renovations. Not cool. We are from out of province.

A Tavola is a unique Mediterranean Bistro with excellent food and great atmosphere.It is the number 1 restaurant in Whitby and is currently enlarging the size of the dining room. The food is superb and fish is the specialty. The atmosphere is cosy and freindly. The right place to go on a special occasion.
