Wine pairings were great. The food was very sumptuous and we had to get a take away back to haul it all home. Salad was amazing, mains too heavy to endure at one sitting, but it all tasted great!! 😋

The restaurant is under the Times Square Apartments and so naturally we decided to give it a try on our first night in Vancouver as it was not far away. Right away we were welcomed in and treated like friends. We had two pre teens with us who had not experienced a great deal of different foods before and after... More

Delicious food with both hearty and healthy options, well flavored, great desserts. The service was warm and friendly with all of the staff knowing the food, working as a team, and just creating a great sense of hospitality and welcome. We ate on the patio on a perfect night and enjoyed the neighborhood vibe.

I went for my birthday here with a party of 7. I am new to authentic Italian cuisine so not sure how the flavours are supposed to be but this restaurant was recommended by my Italian friend so must be pretty good. It is very loud inside. We came around 7:30 and it was hard to hear each other speak.... More

The food was amazing. I didn't expect the pasta to be one of the best I had tasted. The server was very engaging and knowledgeable. The anchovies and egg dish was surprisingly good.

The title should tell you all you need to know. The place was packed but they managed to seat us on a rainy night. The waiter was extremely helpful, funny, and added to the experience. Impressed!

I was on a business trip last month and we decided to go for a staff dinner at Tavola. By far the best meal I have had in a long time. The service was amazing, our wait staff was well educated on the full menu and the vibe was great. I'll definitely be back!

Came here with my aunt. Great location for a walk after a nice meal. The fish is super fresh and the ambiance is lowkey. Good for a one on one.

Had dinner at Tavola and it was a nice experience. The restaurant is not fancy, but rather it had a nice "home" feel to it. The food was good and the portions were decent. Got a nice recommendation on the wine list and the whole meal including the wine was fairly priced. Recommended.
