Having dined at Tavola for the first time, I had new experiences. I first noticed that I felt like I was in a privately owned restaurant. Management was hands-on and the wait staff was superior.
With questions about wine and food recommendations, I found I always received clear and succinct answers.
We chose the soup special that was a tomato bisque. Delicious! On to the next courses which were a pasta with seafood and lasagna. It was decided by us that the seafood pasta was a better choice than the lasagna though the lasagna was good.
For dessert we chose a medley of gelato, sorbetto, cannoli, and the Italian fried donuts. By far the best were the donuts dusted with sugar and cinnamon. We took the cannoli home to have the next day. They were very good. The gelato tasted more like a nice cream than the gelatos I have had in the past. The desserts were a little slow in arriving, so our waiter offered to take them off our bill. We declined, but recognized their aim to please.
We were seated indoors though outdoor seating was available. The view of the river and later, the sunset, was gorgeous. The indoor decor was upscale and less like the usual Italian-like restaurants with murals. Very comfortable. It was awkward drinking water out of metal glasses.
The only downside that I would report were the two tables of twenty young ladies seated behind us mid-meal. They were loud and forced us to eat and leave quickly.
