Came here with my aunt. Great location for a walk after a nice meal. The fish is super fresh and the ambiance is lowkey. Good for a one on one.

Had dinner at Tavola and it was a nice experience. The restaurant is not fancy, but rather it had a nice "home" feel to it. The food was good and the portions were decent. Got a nice recommendation on the wine list and the whole meal including the wine was fairly priced. Recommended.

Just moved in the neighbourhood and I can see this restaurant becoming a regular hangout. The service is warm, genuine and the staff work in harmony. Our server suggested to chose for our party of 5 and to bring food for us which we gladly accepted. All choices were tasty, prepared with care and had a feel of home cooked... More

We visited on Friday night and was pleasantly surprised at the homeliness of this Restaurant. Very Authentic and welcoming. The Food was superb, baked Chicken with jus and Pasta side and also Roast Brussels - italian style. Would definitely recommend this place, but book ahead as super busy.

We met another couple for dinner at 8:30pm. Normally we would eat earlier, but, we couldn't get a reservation for a better time a week and a half ahead of time. There were a few birthdays going on so if you have a special occasion, book well in advance. This place is quite popular. We can see why, it's not... More

Our first visit to this fantastic restaurant. Authentic Italian cuisine reminded me of many great meals we had vacationing in Italy. Our waiter was fabulous and we followed most of his recommendations. You absolutely must have their fresh barratta cheese dish to start things off. All 6 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Look forward to going back soon.

This restaurant has great potential and actually great servers. Our waitress was excellent. The food and ambiance are another matter. Small portions at huge prices is the name of the game. And noisey! Wow. Its like how loud do you want it. I saw many people on their cell phones which may have been normally uncool but later thought they... More

I come here at least every three weeks . Italian cuisine at its best. Not pretentious catering to the yuppie, millennial and retired crowd. A great bar to sit at if your single . Dennis has a great memory on what you like to drink. About average quality of food and great selection of wines. One often sees the movie... More
