Our friends in Winchester took us to A Tavola recently and we loved the experience. It was very cozy on a rainy night. It is clearly a neighborhood gem, almost like Cheers, where everyone knows you. My wife and I had the Tagliatelle with wild boar ragu and misa salad. Our friends had the Bistecca and Bucatini. All of us... More

We love eating at the small bar at A Tavola so we can watch the chefs at work. The choreography and serious attention to detail in the kitchen is fun to watch. The homemade pasta is dreamy and their daily selections are mostly from local sources. The owner/chef clearly loves his profession. My only negative is that the dining room... More

Our first visit to this charming restaurant, and it surely won't be our last. The menu was compact yet creative. All of our selections were a delight to the senses, starting with the app " special" of prosciutto, warm figs and fresh greens from the restaurant's Garden. My husband and I choose 1/2 portions of their pasta dishes, noting the... More

Oh, how I wish we'd often around to visiting this restaurant before now! Small, beautifully rustic dining room, open to the small kitchen. The food is to die for - such richness and depth of flavor across the board, with truly creative dishes. Wow.

Been here several times over the last few months. Always very impressed. Recently we had a multi course special with wine pairings and were particularly struck by the excellence and originality of the wine selections.

My husband and I went here last night with dear friends who live in Winchester. We are from NY and this restaurant rates among the very best. Every appetizer and dish we had were fresh, excellently prepared, well seasoned and unusually well composed. The food is simple, direct, clean, and the menu is superb. Also, the service was outstanding. The... More

We chose this small, neighborhood northern Italian ristorante for a more intimate Mothers Day celebration, and it was perfect for the occasion. The chef owner is present in the visible kitchen and in the dining area, giving the ambience a personal feel. The fixed price menu on Mothers Day was interesting, and our entrees were excellent. The Italian wine list... More

I love the atmosphere and service here. Good is always good. It just had such a limited menu that we don't come very often.

I went there with a group of seven friends and we had a great dinner. I had the trout special. I think it may have been the best fish special I have ever tried at a restaurant. The dish was fabulous. A couple people in our group got the lamb special and said it was excellent. Great service. It was... More

Service was great, but the food was meh. The people there are really nice and friendly, but the food isn't that good.
