Reading other reviewers, I agree that finding La Tavola provides a bit of a challenge. It is set back in a line of store fronts close to the train station. We arrived on a Friday evening around 8 p.m. without advanced reservations. The establishment was busy, but not overwhelmed. The hostess seated us immediately, but at a table immediately next to the kitchen. More unfortunately, next to a group of three who appeared to be regulars as one of the wait staff sat down at their table and joined in conversation. One of the threesome shared his recent situation with a computer scan; followed by phone calls, while at the table and loud enough for us to hear the entire conversations, to both the computer company and his credit card company. Disappointing.
My wife had the veal piccata and I had the Fish of the Day which was served baked. Our salads were fresh, appropriately sized with a tasty dressing. The veal piccata was tender and well prepared. The Fish was flavorful, but a bit overdone and bordering on dry.
The highlight of the evening was dessert. My tiramisu was prepared in the old-style with lady fingers! One of the best that I have had.
With a bottle of wine and tip, our bill was $94.
Great place for the locals. A pleasant surprise for someone from out of town. Very good with the potential for excellent.
