What a surprise my wife and I got tonight when when when we dined at LaTavola. We dine there once a week or so, that is Dine not eat, and usually share a chef salad, cheese bread, and a small pizza, but tonight for some reason my wife inquired about soup. Neither of us knew that soup was an option... More

By far, the best tasting food in Burlington! Go for their seafood combination, calzone or delicious pastas! Highly recommended! Reservations also recommended :)

We have been to LaTavola many times. We always enjoy our selections & leave full & happy. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable, & even remembers our most common lIkes ... which wine, which appetizer (the garlic knots), our favorite entrees (Shrimp FraDiablo, any pizza, Stromboli, fried shrimp). Great food, service, people. Highly recommend. Try the lemoncello ice cream dessert...yum!

One of the most difficult places to get into any night of the week, but it's worth the reservation! Our favorite meeting place with friends. Service has always been great and the food and wine are excellent--yes, I can even get a Lambrusco here!

First time here. Ample parking on the street for a Monday night. Upon entering, was not greeted with a welcome, but was asked if we had reservations. I said no and the waiter had us wait while he went to the back to ask ?? ....The restaurant was half full. And was never more than half full while we dined..... More

We were lucky to be able to get into the restaurant on a Saturday night without a reservation because they had just had a cancellation. Small seating area so you are close to your neighbors. The house salad was fresh, the garlic bread tasty, and the pasta very enjoyable. I had the chicken piccata and it was yummy and the... More
