Sea Island


The Cloister

You’re always welcome at our table.

Enjoy house-cured prosciutto, homemade pasta, wood-fired pizza, hand-pulled mozzarella. And the chef, as he tosses dough through the air and stokes the fire in our Mugnaini wood-burning oven in the open pizza kitchen. The bar is stocked with Italian spirits that pair exceptionally well with the restaurant’s Italian fare, with classic cocktails reinvented to reflect the region. A place to gather. A table to share. Good food to enjoy. The soul of Italy isn’t just found on the menu. It’s around the table.


*Tavola is temporarily closed for renovations. Service in the new and expanded Tavola resumes March 17, 2017.

Meet Chef Robert Reynaud

Before traveling the world studying, exploring, and shaping his culinary path, a curious 12-year-old learned to cook at home with family, and discovered his love of cooking while making fudge with his grandmother. Reynaud has traveled throughout Italy—Parma, Modena, and Bologna—and studied the relationship of pairing food and wine in California’s wine country.
