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

Not what you expect in small town Iowa. The food is always great! A wonderful date night dinner destination. My only criticism, is they should have smaller plates during lunch. I always eat too much, so I avoid going here very often for lunch. Otherwise, try everything. It's all great. We've ordered take out pizza for business lunches at the... More

My wife and I dined here on a Saturday evening. The service was excellent, as was the food. The menu is extensive offering a wide variety of Italian dishes. Be sure to save room for dessert! Reservations are highly recommended as there are a fairly small number of tables and the restaurant gets very busy, particularly at the weekend.

Although the restaurant is pretty tight on space, the food is great. Their twist on calamari appetizer is something special - make sure you get some bread to sop up the sauce! Food and wine were great.
