I usually have good service here but it was the first day reopening after quarantine so it’s understandable. There was options for dining inside and outside. We chose outside. They were constructing something on the other side of where we were sitting. So that’s the only reason for the noise level. They are adapting to the changes so I’m sure it’s just going to get better from here

Wonderful first meal out in 11 weeks! Love dining al fresco. Good set up. Very clean. Relaxing atmosphere. Nice to see people smiling, enjoying amazing wine and dressing up a bit after being at home. The halibut special was great, as were my husband’s scallops. I love the fried risotto balls - those are a must whenever I come here.

Overall, we were very satisfied with our visit to Tavolo in Smithfield.

The setup of tables and the staff were great.

Our meals were both delicious, we started with an appetizer and ended with a dessert and after dinner drink.

We very much enjoyed our outdoor dining experience from beginning to end and plan to return again soon.

This was our first outing since March 13 and it was such a great date afternoon. Our server was awesome and knowledgeable, she followed all the safety precautions as well as the other staff. The food was delicious and our sangria was amazing.

The only reason atmosphere was not good is because we were in a parking lot. Not the fault of the owners. They did what they could with The Corona regulations.

Simply put, Tavalo’s is always the BEST! My 90 mile round trip is worth it! Incredible menu with the freshest seafood, tender meats, superb sauces and definitely the very best bartenders in the area. If I make a reservation, there is always a place setting ready! I like that! You will never find a better scallop anywhere.

Beautiful ambience, nice menu variety, love the fish specials, love the halibut. Had the filet mignon last night. It was good but a little pricey at $33 for the portion. Came with just a few diced fried potatoes and small pieces of asparagus.

Very nice. Food and atmosphere great. Service at bar was poor. Bartender too busy chatting instead of waiting on new people.

Very disappointed second time here the first was awesome. This time Filet came out rare when it came back it was all fat which is odd for a filet very tough as well. Fruitti di mar has no scallops in it and one shrimp. $150 wasted on what was suppose to be a great special night

This restaurant remains a favorite, from breadth of food offerings to location. Our server was lovely but having an “off” night; attentive but forgetful and not very knowledgeable on the food on the menu or the wine. We were trying some of the more serious glasses of wine ($23-28/glass) and the server’s description was based off of how sweet she thought they were - fortunately, our answers were just a google away and we were pleased with our overall choices. The beet salad was a perfect marriage of flavors, overflowing the plate but light on the palate. The spinach ravioli was delicious but my partner’s rib-eye, which was the special, was a thin cut and came out cold. The tiramisu was quite light and delicious but the cappuccinos came out after we finished dessert and, even then, mine came out 10 minutes after my partner’s. We intended to run errands after dinner, not expecting dinner to run 2 1/2 hours, but ran out of time. All in all, a very nice night with my charming companion and overall good food but Tavolo should decide if they want to go all in on the fine dining experience and associated prices or if they prefer to be a more laid back local spot in which case prices are a bit high. We will be back, interested in seeing what they do.

Service overall slow and not great attention to detail. Restaurant wasn’t crowded and was surprised we had to ask for water refills 2x, waited about 15 minutes for waitress to acknowledge us once we were seated.

However food was absolutely delicious and wine choices amazing. Waitress picked wine and was given a range to work with. She went on the lower end which was a nice surprise and the wine was great.

Definitely will go back but don’t expect Davios type service and attention to details. Also very loud inside restaurant.

The food was good but the service was terrible. We had ask our waitress twice for everything that we wanted or needed because she would forget. She didn’t even apologize or feel bad that she’d forget. She was never around when we needed her. We had to ask other workers to go get her. We’ve been to this restaurant twice before and weren’t impressed so we thought we’d give it another try and I can honestly say third time is not a charm that’s for sure. Needless to say we will not be returning nor would we recommend this restaurant to family and friends.

It was our first time here and on Valentine’s Day. It was so amazing!!! Carol was the best waitress/server we have had in many years. We have typically gone to Providence for Italian food, but I think we just found our new go-to restaurant.

Thanks to Carol, we will be back soon.

The waitress was not welcoming she didn’t tell us her name and did not check on us. The food was cold when it came to the table and then I had to wait 10 mins to finally get our waitresses attention to get a fork which was frustrating. As well as waiting for refills on our drinks. It wasn’t even busy and we could hear people complaining around us.The portion size was small for the price. Will not return or recommend. I always give a second chance but will not with them.

Terrible experience. Our reservation was at 7:15. We were sat at 7:30 which is fine. Things happen. We finally decided to leave bc it was 7:50 and we still didn’t have our drinks. It was so noisy and packed. They simply couldn’t handle it.

Patricia, I wanted to reach out directly to you to offer my personal apology for your experience on Saturday night. As the owner ,I remember you specifically as I was personally working to get your table ready in a timely manner. I am disappointed to hear that you had to wait so long for drinks to come to your table and upset that I wasn't communicated about the delay by your server. That should never have happened and I regret that I was not able to speak with you personally last night.

Fantastic experience. We will be back. There was a large party (over 20) that was seated in the room with us and they were obnoxious. This had nothing to do with the restaurant or the server. In fact, the server handled it with grace and professionalism.

Usually have had great food and service in the past, even on a busy Friday night. Thursday February 6 the scallops were bad and service was non existent, restaurant was not busy. We were told to we could call owner on Friday to discuss the bad scallops. I am sorry, but that is not how customer service should be.
