Tavolo’s has a quaint and classy historical atmosphere with quality décor but ultimately food quality is my #1 priority, especially when I'm paying a handsome price for it. I have to say Tavolo's doesn't deliver for the money. I can't remember a single staff member including the hostess who seated us smile or even grin in a friendly or welcoming... More

Tavalo specializes in Italian cuisine but dining in the Philtower Building in downtown Tulsa is stepping back into the wealth and beauty of its Art Deco oil boom where millionaire oilman, Waite Phillips, lived on the top floor. The lobby to the building is simply breathtaking. Tavalo has a great bar, great service and very good food. Highly recommended for... More

Picked this restaurant before attending a play at PAC. Service was extremely slow, we asked about our food after we waited for 30 minutes and were told the food was being plated. 30 minutes later part of the table received food. The last person did not receive order for another 15 minutes and by then it was too late .... More

The bruschetta was definitely the best thing we had! The wine selection is very very limited. I got the carbonara & it was average. Would try something different next time. The atmosphere was very cozy, and the service was also very good. It is small though so I would reccomend reservations

Excellent food and service. Scallops for dinner and Italian Benedict for lunch were incredible. The scallops are brought fresh every day from Maine. The servers were both friendly and professional. Make this your first stop in Tulsa.

We stayed one night at the Coutyard Marriott while in Tulsa. The valet recommended the corner Italian restaurant for our dinner that night. We loved that we could walk there from our hotel in less than a minute. Our dinner at Tovolo was fabulous! We shared a nice bottle of Merlot, I had the eggplant parm,and my husband had the... More

This was by far the worst dining experience we have encountered in Tulsa in the six years we've lived here. Our expectations were based on the ownership of the restaurant and reputation for a very positive dining experience. HOWEVER, the mushroom flatbread was room temperature, unseasoned/tasteless, and colored "blah"--brown mushrooms, white with sprinkles of green garnish, cheese spread on white... More

We went to Tavalo tonight to celebrate our anniversary. I was trying to decide on a wine and our server brought me samples to let me decide. I had the Heirloom Tomato Caprese salad Eggplant Parmigiana. The salad was great but the eggplant was to die for! Rich, delicious sauce, perfectly cooked eggplant. Try it!

We had been to Tavolo once before and it seemed like a good restaurant. We took friends to dinner there this evening and the experience was simply awful. Our waiter was an earnest young man who was simply overwhelmed. He seemed to be the only server for the two level restaurant. We had an appetizer, entree and dessert. Arrived for... More
