The Hidden Gem of Ottawa

The owner has a huge heart. He has made extra food and donated it to the local fire department, just to say thank you. Different local charities have benefited from this little gem in Ottawa. It has heart and you’ll love to keep coming back.

Tavola Restaurant 

This restaurant is tucked away at the end of a busy strip mall. Visible signage can be seen from the street. Parking is plentiful and wheelchair accessible. Entering Tavola, you are greeted like a long lost friend and are quickly put at ease and feel comfortable with a 

genuine smile. You’re escorted to your table promptly with some warm conversation and are given the time to go over the menu.

Decordecor

The decor is quaint with three long banquets are along opposite w
alls surrounded by a dozen tables in the middle. This open concept dining allows the hum of conversation and laughter be heard throughout the soft romantic instrumental music
being played. Lighting is dim and each table has a candle for that romantic evening out. The open concept kitchen makes you feel as though you are sitting in their home.

Menu

The menu is easy to read with mouthwatering descriptions. Choices are plentiful from main course dishes of fresh homemade pasta, fish, chicken and red meat. Appetizers are created with a flare of waking the taste buds. Salads are made with fresh locally grown ingredients when available.

The specials are written on the chalkboard, usually three different main courses to choose from with your choice of salad and desert. Also on the board is a list of savory wines available per glass or bottle. Once your order has been taken, you are served with warm fresh homemade buns with garlic olive oil for dipping.

We must admit that we have fallen in love with this restaurant at first bite. Our first order was of a Spinach linguine in a garlic pesto sauce topped roasted pine nuts, sun-dried tomatoes and feta cheese. You could taste the love that had gone into making this dish. Each dish is carefully created with all your senses in mind. Portion sizes are fair, but are big enough to be shared with your loved one. You will want to take your time and enjoy each bite.

Weekends can be quite busy for their dinner sitting. Be sure to make reservations. Staff is knowledgeable and eager to please to make your visit a memorable one. Kitchen staff is also approachable and are willing to share some secrets.

On another visit, we had ordered the Lobster Cannelloni and once again we were not disappointed, each bite was better than the last.

We had also ordered a simple tomato soup. However, it surprised us with the perfectly blended flavours of onions, cheese,cream and tomato. The Cesar salad is simple with only 4 ingredients, but is packed with delight.
