I've visited the restaurant on the weekend for lunch. It was pretty quiet. There was a lot of light, and the decoration was pretty nice. Elegant with only a bit of a Chinese touch. We went for my Birthday, we order some pasta, a couple of entrees and a tuna tataki. Everything was delicious, although the tuna was minimalistic, let's... More

Went with a business group and enjoyed the experience. Food was well presented and tasty and the list contained some nice wines at good prices. Staff were attentive without being oppressive. Overall a good experience in a nice relaxed environment with open kitchen. Worth a visit.

If you love pizza or like a nice fancy place for business lunches or dinners this is the place. They do have a variety of food and during the week their lunch set meals are very worth the price! English friendly as well!!!

I organized large dinner with some fellow Italian expats in Beijing. Excellent reviews from all. Chef Mauro Portaluppi and manager Frank Hao have shown great professionalism and creativity in a very well balanced and fresh Italian cuisine. A bit pricy, but worth the experience. An interesting surprise is the pizza, cooked in an authentic wood-heated oven. Try the "pizza Christine",... More

Great Italian dishes created by the chef in the open kitchen of the restaurant. I got the business lunch menu, including soup, gnocchi, apple tart and espresso. The service is great and the managers know how to make you feel welcome. Cheers with the prosecco

Tavola has been my favorite place to eat for years now, one of the rare place in Beijing where you can get authentic Italian food (approved by my Italian collegues who are very picky trust me). Their Chief comes from Italy and has worked in Michelin starred restaurant, the products are fresh, very good lunch set and great for dinner... More

There are two outstanding things here. One is service. You can witness it the moment you go across the door. They're magnificently well trained. Impeccable is the word. Service in Beijing lacks the concept of courteousness observed in Vietnam, Cambodia let alone developed countries. Their service is refreshingly pleasing. The other thing to stand out is the price. In my... More

This is a nice italian restaurant not far from Kempinski hotel Lufthansa center. It is a bit pricy, but it depends what you choose. I ate sea food salad and meat a la Milanese. Both were tasty. Unfortunately they ran out of Italian beer, so we had to take Corona instead as my friend opted for a beer:)) The servers... More

Tavola continues to be my favorite place to eat in Beijing. Surprising as it's Northern Italian cuisine, but a refuge from the noise of the city. Good menu - I'm very partial to the flank steak and parmesan cheese over rocket greens with a balsamic dressing. Two comments in particular - for those who mentioned the prices, this restaurant is...

Tavola is very popular with expats in the Chaoyang/Liangmaqiao area, and it is easy to understand why. They have great service, beautiful presentation, a stylish space, and lovely dishes. The food is consistently good, but be aware that you will pay western prices. Recommend lunch over dinner; families might find it a bit stuffy, but the dishes seem to please... More
