Not only was this restaurant perfect for a date night, but I also saw others come in and enjoy their happy hour which consists of discounted drinks and appetizers. The crowd varied between the suited and the casual. I opted for the lasagna whereas my other half chose one of the specials, the flounder. Both dishes were incredibly delicious. The... More

We were in Baltimore and just happened on La Tavola in Little Italy, for dinner. My husband had the shrimp, scallops and clams over linguine and I had the stuffed ravioli shells. Delicious! Pasta is handmade. It was so good we went back the next night and the meal was again over the top. The service was fantastic also.

First trip to Little Italy in Baltimore and decided to try La Tavola, glad to say we picked the right place. The pasta and sauces were all made in house and the waiter was great, when we get back to Baltimore will definitely be back to this great taste of little Italy again.

La Tavola is a quality Italian restaurant with a classic Italian (Neapolitan/Sicilian) menu. It is several cuts above the other, traditional Little Italy basic Italian restaurants yet not as pretentious and overpriced as the few more highly rated ones, which tend to emphasize cream-laden, "continentual"-style Italian food. Their portions are very adequate, yet not overflowing as per the modern American... More

Ordered the calamari as an appetizer I ordered the plain old Spaghetti and he ordered the fish of the day that happened to be a tile fish cooked in parchment paper. Everything was good. Nothing mind blowing. Just Good Everything tasted fresh and everything was perfectly prepared. I would have liked more flavors.

The food here is easily the best you will ever eat and the ingredients are fresh as fish is frequently made from what he caught in the bay earlier in the day. How this place isn't sold out nightly is dumbfounding.
