atavolaThe last night was A TAVOLA. Oh my, I can not say enough about this restaurant, in fact I was so into the food, I forgot to take pics, so I have to borrow!!! Yes, it is shameful and I feel awful but you do not understand how good their meatballs are. This was the night I was craving since we arrived. They are made with Wagyu beef, house made sauce and then drizzled with house made basil pesto and served with Blue Oven grilled crusty bread for dipping. All I can say is pure heaven. In fact, when the meal was done, I ordered just one more for dessert! Oh, yes I did. We also had their bacon wrapped dates stuffed with their house made sausage and drizzled with their house made marinara. Lovely! Um, they were gone before I snapped the picture.


When we moved on to the pizza, we chose the Pizza of the Day. House tomato sauce, panna, gorgonzola, mozzarella, pepperoni, house sausage and black pepper was the special pizza of the night and my daughter’s new favorite. To be honest though, she will eat anything with gorgonzola or blue cheese on it.


Just look at that handmade oven. You will not find anything else like that in Cincy. It is a Stefano Ferrara oven hand built for A TAVOLA Pizza in Naples, Italy! Nice huh? We also had the sausage and panna pizza which was house sausage, panna, mozzarella, red onion and fennel. Always a favorite when we go. The coup de grace was the Soppressata, with banana peppers and aged provolone.

atavola4Yes we had three pizza’s! Hey, don’t judge, we had 6 people!  This is a must stop if you are in Cincinnati guys. You will not go wrong. Visit their page here to get more info –> A TAVOLA.  I am also pleased to announce that they will have a new location shortly right in my brothers home town of Madeira!! Now if they would just consider where I live? Please? Pretty Please? Mountain folk will like it I promise!
