There is no upcharge for parties, nor, any discount. You simply pay for what you eat. Our event planner will guide you with how many orders you will need for how many guest you have.
-Choice of 3 Menu Prices, cost of 1 dinner per person
Choose 3 Menu Items, ask all of your guests which they would like. Give the restaurant the number of each ahead of time. We ask that you make an escort card for each guest with their name and choice marked on the card, so the servers can just look and serve. This must be finalized no less than 1 week before the event.
-Family Style Menu Menu prices, 1 dinner per person, based on selections made.
Family Style is our most popular option for parties. It is a fun dining experience(very Italian) , and the guests get to try more than one entrée selection. You choose a 2-3 entrees from the menu and they are plated onto family style platters. Your guests will have a dinner plate at the seat and will serve themselves from the family style bowls. If you have no more than 3 selections, the cost to you is one dinner per person. Please speak with the event planner to discuss options that are best recommended for family style dining.
-Dessert La Tavola makes wonderful desserts in house! Our Cannoli are perfect for the end of your meal, as are the rest of our delicious specialties. However, we understand, you might have a special cake or dessert you might like to serve to your guests. If so, you are welcome to bring in any outside dessert. We charge a plating fee for this. It runs between $2-$3 per person, depending on the dessert. Our staff will present your dessert, cut and serve it to all of your guests.**You may not bring in any outside desserts that we make in house. Example: no outside tiramisu or cannoli**
