If you're close, it's worth a trip here. I think Mondo's beats it out for the food, but this restaurant has a far wider selection of dishes, not just Italian. I think the quality is generally acceptable, but not flawless. They also take reservations, which is great. Definitely not a bad review here - just a good, solid neighborhood place.

Have always enjoyed the friendly service here while visiting this area. The server was very attentive and checked on out table frequently. The food was good as always. The children's portions were fairly large and nicely priced. The adult portions were hot and tasty.

My husband and I frequent La Tabella and it's always delicious! The service is great and they have some of the best meatballs and Eggplant Parmesan around. Prices are reasonable and it has an intimate romantic feel to the restaurant. I highly recommend it!

Everyone was happy with the food and service. We had New Yorkers here tonight who thought the veal parmagan and seafood fra diavalo were true to form. Great table service.

The service was excellent!!! We went during restaurant week and the special menu was different form the regular menu - different than most other RWeek menus. The hangar steak and chicken lasagna were very good. They had a chicken salad/pureed potato app that was outstanding.....try it if they offer it, you will be surprised. Excellent bread and EVOO. definitely will... More

We can always count on a good meal and good service at La Tabella. They always have excellent specials that include Italian dishes, prime rib, and seafood. We especially love that it is so close to home and we don't have to deal with the downtown parking issues.
