Pizza is one of the best i ever had... So tasty! Pasta is good too! Our waitress is a bit loose (She forgot to place our additional order and refused to be flexible on menu) but others were good.

The staff are so friendly! So welcoming it's almost like they are welcoming you into their home for dinner. My husband is a chef and he said the gnocchi was the best he's ever tasted. Will not be disappointed make sure you try it out, it's by far one of the best restaurants in Airlie Beach.

Had a good lunch here. The seafood salad was very enjoyable. The service was friendly and efficient. Authentic Italian and much better than the standard burgers and chips in many other places in Airlie Beach.

After having a beautiful lunch here last Saturday, we returned here today again for lunch. The friendly service, beautiful fresh meals, lovely location ( opposite the beach ) and outdoor dining was again outstanding. If you enjoy good Italian fare, very fresh and very reasonably priced, then you cant go past La Tabella Trattoria. We love it and hope to... More

Went out for an impromptu lunch with family today around 2.00. We were pleased when La Tabella staff told us they could accomodate our group of 13; however, judging by the service we received, this didn't seem to be the case. The poor service began with a small coffee order and one wine taking a long time to arrive. When... More

Your comments are noted and will be addressed. Unfortunately whilst being focused on getting a discount which seems to be the be and end all for you, you have missed that you were not charged for the doughy pizza (which the lady that ate it - not you, claimed the pizza was lovely and consumed all of it). You may... More
