Description: In the vein of a traditional Italian Trattoria – a casual, local gathering place for food, friends and wine – our menu reflects the purity of tradition by relying on the classical and effortless approach. The simple purity of our inspiration comes from the superior ingredients and technique of the Trattoria.Everything on the menu at Tavolata is handcrafted, using only the finest local and imported ingredients. Our pasta is made fresh daily from 100% semolina from Italy using our own bronze die extruder. Unlike the store bought pasta most restaurants use, you will find the delightful chewiness of freshly extruded pasta a wonderful experience. From the fermentation of the dough to the homemade toppings, you'll certainly agree that our hand-tossed pizzas are irresistible.The joy of eating, both simply and well, while among good company is the aspiration of Tavolata. It is with this simple thought that we invite you to sit, dine an enjoy life with those you love at our Tavolata!

Best Italian I've had in a long time. The pasta is house made and perfectly cooked. The bowl came out steaming full of tomato-y goodness. Order the naked bruschetta -it's just a delicious slab of bread, brushed with oil and thrown on the grill over a wood fire. I loved the char marks and the earthy flavor.

I called to get directions, and the host who took the call was standing in front of the restaurant to greet me - what a nice touch!

Came here with our 3 year old quite late on a Sunday night. Although it's quite a cool place - pared down walls, affluent young clientele - they weren't remotely phased by our 3 year old and fussed around her making sure she was comfortable. Food and wine were good value and the gnocchi and chocolate mousse were particularly good. Really nice overall experience.

I had a lamb lasagna and my fiancé ordered a spaghetti pomodoro. Both these food were just perfect! Waitress was very nice, this restaurant has very luxurious atmosphere and nice style but for a good price :) But don't eat a pizza there, somebody next to us orderet it and it looked quite bad. I had also a watermelon juice which was also good. As a desert we ordered créme brullé-honestly, he best we've ever had. I'd totally recommened you this restaurant, better experience than in Michelangelo restaurant (which was also good bud not as good as this...)

All the dish we took were so tasty, antipasto platter, lasagna, blodetto(sea food tomate based stew) and creme brulee. especially we loved their lasagna with tasty tomate sauce, the amount of cheese on top is just perfect, not too much to spoil the sauce taste. And their service was very good as others commented. We will defiinitely visit again.
