Italian

La Tavola translates to “the table” in Italian—a place where friends and families can gather anytime. Simple yet elegant dishes, classic sauces and creative entrees emphasize the true taste of Italy’s premier ingredients, complemented by a carefully chosen and extensive wine selection.

La Tavola’s exposed brick, dark wood floors and rustic colors give the restaurant its authentic trattoria feel, while progressive touches hint at its innovative cuisine. And with indoor seating for 60 guests, a small bar and an outdoor covered patio for 40 or more, the space is just right for celebrating any occasion together.

As Executive Chef at Atlanta's best Italian trattoria, Chef Brian Moll leads a passionate kitchen with a focus on fresh local ingredients and time honored culinary traditions.

Brian's diverse background include stints as executive chef at The Farmhouse at Serenbe, owner and operator of the Chattahoochee Hills Food Shop and time in the kitchen of Ecco Midtown.

                                                              Had a wonderful birthday dinner with friends. We shared the veal meatball appetizer which was really good. Two of us had the fish special that came with a unique salad and it was wonderful. Another person had the zuppa with mixed fish and she enjoyed that. The only disapointing dish was the Cresta pasta which a friend said was Ok. We shared the citrus cake with ice cream for dessert. It was good although the cake was a little dense for me. Our server Michael was attentive and accomodated several small requests that we had. The only challenging thing with this restaurant is the tables that are in the middle of the place. We were offered the table closest to the entry way and one closest to the kitchen. We opted to eat on the patio even thought it was a little warm out there. It worked out fine. Also the reception guy who received us could have been a tad friendlier. I will come back here.

                                                              this is truly my favorite restaurant in all of Atlanta and the best pasta I have had in the state. The staff is warm and very accommodating. The food is delicious I really recommend the spaghetti with marinara I know it sounds like a simple dish but my G-d they make it perfectly. My husband takes me here every year for my birthday and the slice of orange olive oil cake you get as a birthday complimentary is to DIE for. So naturally I had to take my mom for Mother’s Day she loved it. I can’t stress it enough this is the best place.

The seafood was great...monk fish and mussels, lobster pasta and the most wonderful octopus appetizer. Our server, Amanda, was very attentive. Things were slow in the kitchen but we were kept apprised of what was happening and the bread with olive oil and a great wine kept us smiling.

As it was our first time, we had no idea what to expect. Our waitress was very nice and attentive1 Another surprise: when we ordered a bottle of wine, we were told that it was available only by the glass but finally, thanks to our waitress we got the bottle.

We dine out regularly and the appetizer, Piatto de Mare, was the best I have had. Food is excellent and overall ambiance is great. It’s now on our very short list for dining often.

The food is always incredible and the ambience is spot on. Our service from the waitress was a little spotty this time but we will still be back again and again.
