Excellent family Sunday lunch yesterday. We had a wide variety of food, everyone proclaimed there's was the best! Tiramisu is a must. Service was very good, and the kids food came first (always a sign of a good restaurant).

We had a girls lunch out at A TAVOLA....from the minute our wonderful waiter appeared we could fault nothing at all.

Telli the name of our waiter had a huge smile throughout lunch and could not have been more helpful or friendly. He actually improved my day the minute he arrived at our table. His wonderful personality perked us all up immediately......
We all had different dishes......and all were absolutely scrumptious !!!
The manager ended our happy lunch David chatting to us.....and we felt like family by the time we left.

What a great experience......as it was not only a lunch.....but felt like a family experience.

Will definitely go back there as often as possible........

Came here without looking them up online, or with any pre-existing ideas of how nice it would be. The service was some of the best I have experienced in Cape Town. The menu was soo good it was a huge challenge to decide what to order, and the food was even better than it sounded on the menu.

This restaurant serves traditional Italian food - hearty and tasty. It is a very busy restaurant, but the service was good throughout. All the meals delivered what it promised on the menu and we enjoyed it. My only 'complaint' would be that the lasagne is too creamy and therefore a bit runny. It's not how I like it but it is still tasty. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We were recommended by a friend to this "local" Italian restaurant. It ws mid-December when we were there and it was crowded with local residents, not tourists.We were not disapointed in any way. We ate pasta which went down well with local wine. We had enjoyable evening meal.
