Tavolàta Restaurant Review

: One of Belltown’s hippest restaurants, Tavolàta features a massive 30-foot communal table in the middle of the room. But if you aren’t a fan of this concept, hold out for a romantic booth or one of the small tables tucked around the room’s edges. The daily changing menu features rustic Italian cuisine --- a handful of first courses, a dozen pastas and three entrées. Among house-made pastas, don't miss the signature gnocchi with mozzarella, tomato and Reggiano cheese. Rigatoni is tossed with spicy Italian sausage, marjoram and tomato. Mains highlight grilled steak with creamy polenta, and seared scallops with eggplant caponata. For a sweet ending, we recommend the lemon-scented donut holes, each morsel crispy and dusted with sugar. To complement any dish, there's a reasonably priced, all-Italian wine list.
