Tim James in WineMag

“…a list of interesting, excellently chosen wines, the work of one of the owners, David Haupt, who’s often to be seen at wine-tastings and knows well what he’s doing. Plenty available by the glass; and there’s a good selection of foreign stuff (mostly Italian) – affordable enough to tempt and reward a mildly adventurous suburbanite. There are a few older vintages (unfortunately not all the vintages are given on the list). Markups are modest, especially for the foreign selection and the “Cellar Selection”…” [more…]

“…it’s not just the… chance we’ll be sat next to Luke Dale-Roberts enjoying the Gnocchi Gorgonzola that makes A Tavola special to us. We also really, really love their wine philosophy.” [more…]

Rossouw’s Restaurants Review

“There is a particular pleasure in returning to an old favourite and finding it as good as before, or even better.

In the Italian restaurant category, the competition is very fierce in South Africa, but the memorable ones can be counted on just one hand.

A Tavola in Claremont did not open with much hoopla and a number of years later has quietly established itself as a “local” with a loyal following. In contrast to many others, it has not chosen the Grand Prix or football-themed trattoria look and the result is an Italian in the form of a modern café. There’s a deli section, an open kitchen and also pleasant patio seating.”   [more…]
