The Cloister

You’re always welcome at our table.

At Tavola, our authentically rustic Italian eatery, enjoy 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. Experience al fresco dining, year-round, thanks to our new enclosed porch and garden courtyard. 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.
