Tavola Restaurant

One of the Best Restaurants in Downtown Minneapolis

Entrance to Tavola Italian restaurant at Elliot Park Hotel

Tavola is a warm and welcoming spot for intimate dining or a lively group gathered for a shared family-style meal. Enjoy delectable Italian cuisine and farm-to-table specialties at the on-site Tavola Kitchen and Bar, a shining gem among downtown Minneapolis restaurants. As soon as you walk in, you’re enveloped by the welcoming vibe of this upscale urban eatery where comfort meets culture. Enjoy a moment of reprieve as you sip on cocktails crafted with care and skill, and share in an energizing conversation with friends.

A Neighborhood Eatery in the Heart of Downtown

Soft candlelight, a crackling wood-fired oven, and a palette of mellow amber, bright copper and rich wood tones enhance the mood. Locals and hotel guests alike will enjoy the wide array of Tavola’s mouthwatering menu items, from inventive breakfasts to savory late-night bites inspired by the Tuscan countryside and made with fresh, local ingredients. When it comes to Elliot Park restaurants, or if you’re searching for restaurants near the Minneapolis Convention Center, look no further than the warm and inviting Tavola.

Where Friends Become Family

Our passion is to foster a seemingly insignificant detail and transform it into the feeling of an imminently meaningful moment.  Whether you enjoy signature food items made with local and honest ingredients, like Nonna used to make; the intoxicating aromas of freshly baked breads and entrees in our wood stone oven; the lively buzz of the clinking glasses amidst convivial conversations; or the hidden playful menu witticisms like inside family jokes, Tavola is the place where new friends become family over a shared meal.

Hearty Food, Friendly Smiles

Tavola’s team builds a family of hospitality and creates a culture of comfort by providing a bastion of refuge, relaxation and recreation for our guests just as you might find on a summer night in the Tuscan countryside or a cold Winter’s evening in Minnesota.  As our guests enter the restaurant, they are swept up in the warmth of the wood, ambient lighting, & the glowing hearth along with a genuine greeting and friendly smile. We welcome our guests and neighbors into our home by providing gracious service coupled with rustic and hearty food made from grandmother’s recipes.

Tavola Family Meal

Every Sunday night will be designated as Tavola Family Meal.  Tables in the dining room will be pulled together and set as a harvest table.  A cornucopia of food will be served in waves throughout a three-hour period.  Guests may come and go as they please, always knowing the platters will be full and the food will be fresh.  Red and white house wine will be placed across the table for all to enjoy.  Guests will be charged one affordable price for food (additional for wine).
