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.

I have eaten at this restaurant twice and it is delicious! The atmosphere is very lively - you are in close quarters with other diners but it has that trendy New York/hidden gem feel! When my husband and I dined just the two of us, we were sat a two-person table that was very small and close to the other... More

I visited here with family and we all thought the food and service were quite good. We had a variety of seafood, pastas and meat...all of which was excellent. And, in a test of a place claiming to be Italian, they actually made a passable Negroni! The service was well intentioned, although our waitress was not knowledgeable about the wine... More

Romantic Italian restaurant in VA Highlands. Reasonably priced and good sized portions. Had the charcuterie board, which had tons of good quality meat. The ravioli was great as was the spaghetti and veal meatballs. Wine list has a good variety of prices. We ordered a less expensive bottle and were really happy with it. Service was good. Loved the cannoli... More

I'm traveling abroad and have been reviewing restaurants as I've visited. I just realized I have never reviewed my favorite hometown restaurant which I have been frequenting for over a decade. LaTavola is my idea of the perfect neighborhood Italian restaurant. The food is excellent -clean and not over complicated but beautiful and delicious. A must-try is the mushroom ragu!... More

Despite being the last table seated on a Friday night, we received excellent service and the food was tasty: meatball appetizer, tuna and Veal Chopp entrees, some bubbly water and a waiter who wrestled and played football...a Georgia Techie. A delightful dinner in a restaurant that makes an effort and delivers.

We have been to this restaurant several times in the last 2 years and have had great food and service, so we were unprepared for what happened during our visit yesterday (Sunday October 9, 2016). In retrospect, we should have put off ordering and left, but it was almost 2 pm and we didn't have reservations anywhere else. The restaurant... More
