I read all the reviews I could find about this unique new Italian restaurant in San Juan. Every reviewer loved the food so we decided to give it a try. Wow! Right there in the middle of a busy street in Condado is this small cozy spot. The food is obviously made from scratch starting with cocktails through salad dressings and especially the pasta and sauces.

I tried the Papardelle with Carbonara and chicken. So delicious! My wife had Chicken Parm. Awesome! I cook as a hobby and can easily detect processed foods. There was none of that here.

Try this restaurant. You won't be disappointed...

Greeted and seated promptly,as always. Full service bar. Roasted mushroom appetizer is the best ever. Individual pizzas are eight slices and combined with a salad is a wonderful shareable meal. Nightly specials are very creative and always delicious. Enjoy!!

This place was fun -- felt like a neighborhood place, a little disjointed but friendly and fun. And the food was good. The pasta tasted like it was fresh and house made.

Great food......a place we have been to before and will be back. It has a casual atmosphere so that is the reason for the lower atmosphere...but food and service is some of the best!

We enjoyed our meal very much. The portions were very generous and we were able to take some back with us for the following day. The meantballs were delicious and my husband thought the cuttlefish risotto was delicious. Great Italian food.

Very nice staff, friendly but overall service was a bit disorganized. Food was mixed, delicious appetizers but so-so main entrees. We don’t mind a relaxed pace on vacation, but we waited over 45 minutes between each course including dessert, and there were missed dishes with each course. It was busy so perhaps was just an ‘off’ night.

BEWARE
Undoubtedly the most dysfunctional restaurant we have ever encountered! They were not prepared for our reservation, terrible service and tasteless food once it arrived. Even brought us someone else’s order!

Plenty of other good quality restaurants nearby avoid this one🙀

What a great dinner, from start to finish. It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but this is a fantastic restaurant. There aren’t many seats inside, so I would recommend a reservation on OT. My wife and I reserved a seat and they had several ‘reserved’ seats waiting for those who used OT and were given a choice of which one we wanted. While deciding on which bottle of wine we wanted, we placed an appetizer order of their meatballs. They were hot and delicious! My wife ordered the filet and it was very soft and grilled perfectly for her. I went with their lasagna special and it did not disappoint at all. The flourless cake for dessert was brought out fast and hot as well. The waiters and waitresses were extremely personable. The value of the meal was great as well. If you like Italian food, I highly recommend this restaurant. We may stop by again while here on vacation for there are several other items on the menu we want to try. Great food, great value, and a wonderful staff. Give it a try - you won’t be disappointed!

Great service with friendly staff. The food was extremely fresh and tasty. We ordered a number of different appetizers to share and enjoyed each one!
The Fried Calamari and Sautéed Mushrooms were two of our favorites!

Our table was waiting for us when we arrived. The staff is always welcoming and efficient. They have a full bar. We shared appetizers of roasted mushrooms and lamb sliders, both cooked to perfection. If you have dietary concerns they are very accommodating. Our entrees were a boneless, skinless grilled chicken breast with steamed vegetables and an artisan pizza. Conveniently located with parking right next door if you need it. You will NOT be disappointed. Enjoy!

Chef Remy Maldonado has a wonderful knack of creating a fusion of Latin and Spanish dishes. We have tried every appetizer on the menu and our hardest choice is to choose which ones. They are all wonderful. Our favorite is the roasted mushrooms with pancetta. Best ever!! All pasta is freshly made. The individual pizzas are thin crust and seasoned to perfection. The staff are very welcoming , knowledgeable and attentive. A "don't miss" stop if you are in Condado. If you are not they offer parking right next door. Enjoy!!

Visited Tavola for Mother's day - reserved through OT. We arrived and our table was properly reserved. Service was excellent, very flexible with our requests (we had a 7 y.o. with us) and food was delicious. I have been here many times in weekdays and it was relatively busy and service was great, but to see they serviced our table with the same great attitude and a full restaurant on Mother's day was a pleasant surprise. Top notch. Will continue visiting. PD. The mac and cheese, risotto and filet were outstanding. So was the dessert.

Everything was great , food, service and client service but I feel very bad regarding the information in open table in the payment options part , it says that they accept amex, visa and master card and when I tried to pay with amex they didn’t accept amex and that is an misleading advertising so I left with a positive but also a negative experience

A wonderful offering of Italian food with subtle Latin touches. The roasted mushroom appetizer is the best I've EVER had. The Tavola pizza is a very tasty and a substantial meal. Chicken Parm is moist and tender and almost guarantees a doggie bag. The staff is welcoming, friendly and very efficient. You will NOT be disappointed. Enjoy !!
