La Tavola is part of the Fifth Group Restaurant group and it is a STAR in the group. The food is always fresh and consistent. I have been going for years and have never had a bad meal

I have lived in Italy for a long time and this is one of the few places in the US that brings the good memories back. The waiters are polite and professional. The restaurant is not in downtown or midtown and you will need a ride to reach there. The place is nice and cozy. The food is delicious and... More

We have been eating here for at least 4 yrs and unfortunately it's being discovered. Fifth group runs tip top restaurants. Not too big limited menu great service! La tavola is our favorite situated in Virginia Highlands.

Upon entering the restaurant, we felt we were back in Italy. While we were waiting for our other guests to join us we ordered the cheese tasting board. The two cheeses that were served with bread were very good, but the amount of cheese was very limited for the fee that was charged. Once our guests arrived, we ordered the... More

We had just moved to the area and decided to take a day exploring Atlanta. It was also our Anniversary weekend so I booked us a reservation at La Travola. I chose an early reservation and thankful that I did, it is a small restaurant and fills up very quickly. We were able to sit out back on the patio... More

We made a reservation based on a recommendation from another restaurant waitress. Everything was great. The atmosphere, the food , the staff. Except for the bartender. We were trying to decide on a bottle of wine and he was very condescending and impatient. The wine list was mostly Italian and we were unfamiliar. Luckily everyone else was exceptional as was...

We have been to the restaurant many times. Although the tables are close to each other in the front of the restaurant we choose to sit on the patio. It was very cozy and warm with the overhead heaters and more room to move around. All of our food was hot and tasty from the calamari to the pasta and... More

I've been to this restaurant several times when visiting Atlanta and the food is consistently good. Super tasty Tagliolini, bread with olive oil and wonderful flourless chocolate torte. The vibe is warm and inviting. Service, excellent.

Chose this place to celebrate our first anniversary, even though we'd never been. When booking two days before, they asked if this was a special occasion and my husband said yes, our first anniversary. When they called to confirm the day of, they verified we were celebrating an anniversary. When we arrived (on time on a weeknight), we were immediately... More

A fun place to eat with wonderful food and wine. We were meeting a friend and actually were able to spend an enjoyable evening with conversation. We did not have to shout across the table. Just a very intimate feeling.
