Didn’t feel the good was all that great. On top of things found out a worker there that night was positive for Hepatitis A and I now have to wait for the health department to call for a shot. So not worth it!
Extremely busy on a Saturday night, but the food and service are worth the wait.
We gave them another chance after the owner called us personally to apologize. This time everything was great-excellent service and delicious food. Greens are fabulous. They were out of tiramisu and gave us some mini cannolis on the house Instead. Crowded but no complaints! We’ll definitely be back!
We chose Chesterfield's Tavolo as we had just attended our daughter's Lacrosse game against SUNY Polytechnic in Utica. The food was very good with a varied menu. Great open floor plan and very attentive staff. We chose the meatballs as an appetizer - which were 3 large very tasty meatballs. I had Chicken Riggies - the specialty which did not disappoint - very tasty and slightly spicy. My wife had the Burrata Ravioli - 4 large ravioli stuffed with fresh ravioli. Will skip appetizer next time as the dinner portions were large.
We went there for the first time and it was absolutely incredible, the food was outstanding, my husband said the Riggies were the best he’s ever had. I ordered the Tuscan Chicken it was so delicious and portion size was perfect, this will be our new weekly dinner spot. The server we had was excellent and attentive, the ambiance was upbeat and fun.
Excellent dinner menu and staff great bar atmosphere you won't be disappointed. Give it a try and enjoy.
Very happy with our experience, we got a table 5 minutes before our reservation even as busy as it was for Valentine’s Day weekend. The food was very good and the wait staff was excellent.
So noisy and crowded. Ending with a table in the aisle from the kitchen and was hit by every server and patron leaving. The food was delicious, the waitress was very nice but not worth the atmospher.
Food was excellent!!! Kinda noisy, it was a very busy night. Had a reservation and still had to wait for a table.
The food is excellent and the people are even better. I really enjoy dining at Tavolo.
Food was very good. Portion size was a little small for the price. Would definitely come back. Will recommend to others.
This was my first time dining here. Decided to take the wifey here for Valentine’s Day, and I must say that we were both very happy with the experience. It was a full house because of the occasion so I’m not sure if it’s always as busy as it was. I made reservation ahead of time, and we were seated for the time scheduled. The food was incredible. Some may think it’s pricey, but for the quality food you are getting, it is well worth it. Everything was cooked perfectly and had so much flavor. Service was surprisingly good for how busy it was. We will definitely be coming back here again soon.
Service was impeccable! Food, wonderful, as always!
Great meal and great meal! Thank you!!
I request a hi top table on Open table - they brought us to a booth- I asked for a High top table so we walked back I called ahead and said we were celebrating my husbands birthday - and not a mention , Shrimp Scampi was very bland and the shrimp were TINY looked as if they were 21/25 at best- The Osso bucco had a weird spice to it - was very tender- was not overly impressed the Arancini was Very dry and didnt have mozzarella in the middle - sauce was nice with that - over all I was not impressed .. Unfortunately - may try it again We only come to Utica maybe 2 times a year - so it was a BIG let down --- Server was kind ... but seemed scattered...
Our meal was top notch! We will be back!! We go to Utica just for the great food I’m glad we tried this place out!
The food was really good. The design and layout was fresh and very appealing. It was packed but our wait was not bad at all. The fire cooked pizza was to die for. Can't wait to go back again.
Possibly the worst service I have ever endured. Wait to be seated for 15-20 minutes. No waitress until a manager notices and sends over one who complained about having to come from other side. Whatever that meant. Take drinks orders and leaves. Drinks don’t come for a while. Then a different waitress offers to put in our dinner orders. Waiting again. 1.5 hours since arrival, we say we’re going to leave and bring us the drinks bill. Then! It’s a miracle! Dinners finally come out. They know we’re angry, no one comes to talk to us. Disgusted! Our last visit for sure.
It was nice. Good food. The food came out quick. We were not rushed.
We went there for my birthday and then returned two weeks later for my husband’s birthday!! Food was out of this world and the staff was very friendly and helpful!
Made reservations for a Saturday night at 5pm and were seated immediately. Ordered drinks and an appetizer of calamari that was cooked perfectly and brought out timely. Dinner was delicious, I ordered Tuscan chicken and my husband ordered Steak Morel both entrees were cooked beautifully, staff was very attentive. Would definitely go back.
Great place for groups ot just a couple. They need to work on the burgers. They will not cook medium-rare or even medium creating a dry overcooked burger lacking flavor. The greens however are delicious.
The food was outstanding! The lasagna was the best I've had in a long time, the chicken marcala was silky and perfectly cooked. We had coal fired limoncello wings as an appetizer and they were so delicious. We each had a salad, which were both fresh, delicious and huge! Very cool decor and great energy in the place. Our waitress was very attentive and responsive, as was the entire staff. Everyone was super friendly. My only small complaint was that our food arrived too soon after we got our salads. My dinner companion didn't mind that at all, but I would have preferred some more time to finish my salad. All in all, a wonderful dining experience and I can't wait to go back and bring my friends and family!
Potatoes were not good, I didn't eat them. Steak was cooked perfectly. Prices seemed a little high for the quality of food. Over all a good experience.
My meal was great! I loved the greens and arugula salad also! The service was top notch which made the meal even better! Dessert - banana split!! The best I've ever had anywhere.
We thought the food was good. Pizza very good. We thought prices were high ... it's not a pizza joint.
Waitress never mentioned specials and since it was our first time we didn't know to ask. But the table next us got the specials read to them.
Kinda felt like they cater to their regulars and we didn't qualify. Probably just a snooty waitress experience.
We have been here before and the food is always great and the atmosphere is awesome.
Excellent food and service! We will be back soon!
Our meals were fabulous. Service was excellent. We will return
The food was delicious as usual! Considering how busy it was (New Years Eve), we were seated rather quickly. Our waiter was very attentive. Sal (the owner) stopped by to say hello and make sure we were all set, as did one of the managers. We will definitely will be dining here again! Thank you!
New Years Eve. Restaurant was packed. Food and Service were phenomenal. Keep up the great work!
Very tasty food. Each item has the proper amount of complexity and simplicity. Just right!
The staff has always been warm and welcoming. Each waitress we’ve ever had ended up feeling like a friend.
I have had one major problem with Tavolo. The very first time I went there I fell in love with the sachetti. As a result, I continued ordering it every time - even though many other items on the menu seemed mouth watering.
Finally, after pledging myself a vow, I tried tortelacchi. Man! It was excellent.
I’ve since been comfortable trying the other delights, such as lasagna and cavatelli Bolognese. Both great!
As I write this I can’t wait to return to order the sachetti again.
If you enjoy Italian food, try Tavolo. I recommend it.
Food is amazing. Everytime I go!!! Alot of restaurants around Utica and Syracuse have good day and bad days food wise. Tavolo is consistently the same great taste. Atmosphere reminds me of dining in an outdoor area when you are actually inside. N. Genesee St in Utica needed this restaurant..
The food was very good but I had reservations and was placed at an isolated table across from the pizza making station and felt it was not a good table. You could not even see the rest of the restaurant and the person who sat us made some off the cuff remark about there being parties and it would be quiet there. I did not say anything to the person who sat us because I was with my adult daughter and did not want to embarrass her.
Wonderful meal with wonderful family
Food was fantastic. A little loud in there but very very nice.
Food was delicious, nice relaxing atmosphere. We were staying next door HolidayInn. Received a free ticket for wine or beer but very limited on what we could order, disappointing!
Highly recommend, excellent food and service at reasonable pricing.
Amazing!! Food and service
But seriously, the party atmosphere, while part of the fun, can make conversation difficult.
Server was excellent, and kitchen was speedy. The best vegetarian greens in the world, and excellent pizza and riggies too!
