Excellent food with dishes you wouldn't expect in a traditional Italian restaurant. Very good service, excellent wines, reasonable prices

Glad you enjoyed everything! While the food is the star of the show here, we still strive to provide the service level to match and the wines to complement your experience

We came for a co-workers leaving meal as we knew she liked Italian. Staff were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and advised us that all pasta in La Tavola is made fresh in house which I didn't know, despite having eaten there in the past. The service...More

So glad you enjoyed everything, and do not feel guilty about skipping lunch - I took care of that Ossobucco for you personally! Give me a call the next time you are in town and I'll make sure its on the menu

We discovered LaTavola several years ago while visiting the Inner Harbor. This was our third or fourth visit...we make sure to go there whenever we are in the Baltimore area. The food is outstanding, and the service excellent. Prices are reasonable...highly recommend a visit.

Picked this restaurant based on reviews I had read. Great service, very good, locally sourced food. Like the fact that they offer 1/2 portions for the light eaters in the group.

Nathaniel, Thanks for taking the time to put down your thoughts. We think half portions are a must not just for the light eaters, but for the indecisive folks that want to try two dishes!

You know it’s going to be good when you hear that “Chef Carlo got his start at the age of 10 in his home city of Venice...” It doesn’t get more authentic than that. This was an excellent spot to visit on our first visit...More
