Sea Island


The Cloister

You’re always welcome at our table.

Sea Island’s beloved Tavola features equal parts bright Italian flair and warm Southern charm. Beautiful hand-painted tile wainscoting, eye-catching pops of vibrant red, and cozy caramel leather banquettes are the setting for our Italian fare and warm, old-world ambiance. Our team is committed to providing an authentic Italian experience that combines traditional Italian ingredients and flavors in new and creative dishes. Enjoy homemade pasta, fresh seafood, and, of course, delicious pizzas that you can watch the chef prepare as he tosses dough in the air and stokes the fire in our wood-burning oven in the open pizza kitchen. Dine al fresco year-round, thanks to an enclosed porch and garden courtyard. The bar is stocked with wines from all 20 Italian wine regions, along with spirits that pair exceptionally well with Tavola’s fare, as do classic cocktails that are reinvented to reflect the region. The soul of Italy isn’t just found on the menu. It’s around the table, as friends and family gather to recount their day’s adventures while experiencing an exceptional meal together.
