We greatly enjoyed our dinner at La Tabella Trattoria. Sitting on the covered terrace it was a pleasant setting despite that it was raining. Our waitress ( from Melbourne ) was charming and attentive and the food was great. They offered a wide range of dishes including traditional Italian , fresh seafood and meats.

We went out to dinner on a whim to La Tabella. The staff Chris and our Italian waiter were lovely, very helpful, professional and polite. The food was disappointing, the Oyster Killpatrick was made with BBQ sauce, weird combination and our main seafood fettuccine, in such a location you would expect beautiful fresh seafood.. it wasn't, it was quite clearly...

My wife and I are spending a week in Airlie Beach. La Tabella is so good, we've had dinner there 3 times! The service is outstanding thanks to Phoebe, Bill and Mina. Food is perfectly delicious. We had seafood, steak and pasta and all is supremely tasty!

We booked late in the day for a family dinner. The service was fantastic and the meal, amazing. I had the tuna steak...it was one of those meals where I had to stop and put my knife and fork down, to make sure I was taking the time to really savour every mouthful. Loved it!

Having read some really good reviews we gave it a try. I don't like to be too critical but to be honest we all felt a bit let down. The food was average our waitress didn't know how to smile. I'm still waiting for the butter I requested for the sourdough. Location is good alfresco dining.

Lenni and her staff always look after us when we dine here, probably three times a year, so by no means locals, but we have always had amazing food and wine. We love to sit at the window bar and watch the world walk by, while eating amazing food. Lots to choose from and prices are great. Thank you for... More

Have had a decent pizza in a long time and very thin crust is just what we prefer and La Tabella truly delivered. Fabulous staff, great customer service and value for money. True Italian cuisine. Bonus sea views and breeze as well.

When you want good pasta, you go straight to Italian restaurant. La Tabella Trattoria staff know what they are doing, friendly, polite, helpful. Our meal came fast and was delicious. Thank you for making our holidays yummy :)
