I love this place! From the food, which is ALWAYS really good, to the decor to the variety of gifts....This is such a great place to bring an out of town guest. My husband and I have had lunch here several times and now when we are downtown we don't want to try anything else. Can't wait to go back!

What a find! An Italian style deli with dozens of prepared selections, each one more eye-appealing and delicious than the next one. Today I had a Thai chicken pasta and Broccoli Salad. My wife had the salad plate with mixed greens tuna salad and Curry Chicken salad. Topped off with Guava Lemonade it was a great lunch. Of course you... More

I've eaten at a Tavola on a number of occasions. Once planned a wedding where I was the officiant. The food has always been very good, and if it's nice enough to eat outdoors, you're in for a treat. If you're inside, it's noisy and crowded. My one reason for not frequenting it more than I do is that it... More

The food, the shopping, the atmosphere and the staff keep us returning each time we visit Boise. The choices at the counter are fantastic. The bakery items make my mouth water and the coffee and teas are a perfect pick-me-up. The shop is full of culinary delights, gifts, kitchen wares and cookbooks. You will love this place!

Good coffee, great selection, offered gluten free bread. Finding some place where everyone in my family can find something isn't easy, and we had the opposite problem - so many delicious things to choose from. The salad trio is a great option. I went with the house turkey on gluten free with mixed greens. And a chocolate macaroon. The staff... More

This is one of those pricey sandwich places. The food was really really good and fresh. I had a panni and there was buttermilk fried chicken, and lasagna and fresh salad. Again all really good but still just a sandwich. So two lunch for close to 30 bucks. They also sell a lot of expensive goods, $9 chocolate bars and... More

Our company hosted a retirement party here. The appetizers were just ok. The dinner was delicious, a peach green salad, salmon, a great pasta, and sliced flank steak. All was served cold, but it was very good. I will definitely go back and try their breakfast and lunch. Very nice gourmet kitchen shop also.

I went to a Tavola for a friend's birthday and am already excited to go back. Two of us had the Croque Monsieur, which was so decadently delicious, and our other friend had the salad sampler. She was really happy with the choices, and there were so many options to choose from. It was a tough decision to pick the... More
