Tavolo - Huntingdon Valley
Had a very good meal last night at Tavolo. First time there (had visited Augusto's other restaurant in Warrington). Two couples. All four of us really enjoyed the experience. Food was excellent: butternut squash bisque, caesar and caprese salads, whole grilled dorado with risotto and zucchini with san marzano tomato sides, veal chop with spinach polenta, . Desserts were pretty good: ricotta cheesecake and tiramisu. Very good espresso and cappucinio. A complimentary portion of homemade gnocchi in gorgonzola sauce was so good that I intend to order it next time. Service was good and the chef/owner, Augusto, was charming. He fileted our dorado tableside. All in all, a very nice evening. It's byob and the bill, after tax and tip, came to $240 for the four of us. Almost forgot to mention, the place is very pretty and the tables spaced well apart. We'll definitely be back. It's rare to find such a good restaurant in the suburbs.
My husband had the dorade this past week. It was delicious. I highly recommend this place. The service and food was well worth, the 100.00 check.
I had a fresh gorganzola, beets and greens salad = enough for 2 small salads.
Hubby had breaded (3) lollipop lambchops over arugula, tomato, shaved parm drizzled with lemon/oil as appetizer
He got the dorade for entree...good as any branzino he has had, accompanied w/ cous cous and zucchini.
I had rigatoni w/ pancetta and san marzo tomatoes....delightful, I left a small amt, which hubby ate.
Desserts- lemon tart w/ raspberry ice cream
piece of Tiramisu
1 decaf coffee/ 1 double espresso
All for 100.00. Good portions, great food, attentive service.
Our new "special" place to go.
