We were frequent visitors to Mario's Capriccio's location in Northfield for many years. It's terrific to see that the great food and customer service came along. The location may be a little tough to find for first time clients especially at night, but is definitely worth the trouble. My wife had the multi-colored seafood pasta special and my mother-in-law the salmon special. Both were terrific according to the judges. I asked if they could prepare a signature dish from the Capriccio days, black squid pasta with seafood. Yes they could and oh what a treat it was! A little on the pricey side for a special order but my taste buds truly appreciated the experience. The highlight of the evening, besides the food, was chef Eddy's singing. What a talent in the kitchen and behind the microphone. La Tavola has great food and attentive service. Looking forward to heading there for lunch in the near future!

Don't be fooled by the nondescript exterior. This is a superior Italian restaurant. The atmosphere is casual but the food and service are first class. The service is extremely friendly and attentive but not the least bit intrusive. Mario is a very charming host. The pasta is homemade and the chef's preparations are varied and delicious. The roast duck in particular is excellent. This is one of our favorite restaurants in all of Chicago's north suburbs.
