I never really have wrote food reviews on Tripadvisor, but i felt like this was definately an exception. La Tavola was such a great meal. Service, Atmosphere, Location, and the food was awesome. BYOB is excellent. Corkage fee of $5-$7 is a little too much but other than that no complaints here. I heard a special of Veal with a... More

We ate here on our last night in Pittsburgh. We loved it. The staff were friendly and helpful although we did not know it was bring your own drink. It didn't stop us having a great time. We managed to order and start our meal before a storm started and knocked the power out. You get a salad to start... More

The food if fabulous and I have my favorites, but enjoy trying different dishes as well. Chef Jolina has the magical touch,... More

We have enjoyed dining at La Tavola Italiana many times since we discovered this hidden gem several years ago. The food is always outstanding, and there are always several daily specials.... (although I always get the Terra Sole). The staff is always very friendly and efficient. I highly recommend it for a great meal.

We visited this restaurant numerous times for birthdays and just to get some good food. I have not had anything to eat there that I did not like. Great food and reasonable prices. Great Calimari!!

5 of us ate here and it was very good. We are fairly picky about Italian food but this place exceeded our expectations. We brought our own wine and there is a minimal corking fee for the waitress to open the bottle and provide wine glasses. Make reservations a couple days ahead because we called the day before and had... More

This is an awesome restaurant! I feel like not enough Pittsburghers know about this little gem. It is right near the incline on Mount Washington and the food is amazing. High quality Italian food and it is BYOB. The servers are kind and very good at their job.

We had a group of 12. Some had been there before and for most it was their first time. The food was excellent but the service was outstanding

I"m going to make this as quick as i can and give readers an idea what you're in for here. Do you want trendy? Not here. Do you want an hour long meal? Not here. Do you want a very affordable place where you can kick back a few bottles of wine and relax and let your anxiety roll away?... More

Have been here a number of times and the food and atmosphere are outstanding. Best Italian in Pittsburgh. My wife usually gets the Hawaiian fish special which is great. I had the fish specials from the Christmas time menu and it was outstanding. One of our favorites.

Thank Ron J
