Italian Dining at The Cloister

Italian Soul, Southern Charm.

An authentic Italian experience, from the traditional Italian ingredients and flavors to the variety of dishes served, savored, and enjoyed around a lively table. Handmade pasta, fresh seafood, and, of course, delicious wood-fired pizzas you can watch being tossed in the air in the open pizza kitchen.

Handmade ceramic plates, Italian tiles, cozy booths. A well-stocked bar with wines from all 20 Italian wine regions, classic cocktails reinvented to reflect the country. And a bartender who is about to serve you your new favorite cocktail.



Before 5 p.m., casual attire is acceptable. Tank tops and swim attire are not permitted.

After 5 p.m., a collared shirt is required for gentlemen. Well-kept denim is acceptable. Tank tops, swim and fitness attire are not permitted.

Rustic Italian Eatery

Tavola is full of life. You feel it as soon as you walk in the door. You can see it around every table. It starts with our culinary team, inspired every day to bring new ideas and new combinations to the traditional Italian table. We love to see tables full of delicious food and people gathered around them, the way Italians do. 

New and creative dishes, made for discovering. Authentic Italian meals, made for savoring. Stake your place in a corner alcove that feels like private seating without losing the pulse of the restaurant.  Dine al fresco year-round, thanks to an enclosed veranda and garden courtyard.

The soul of Italy isn’t just found on the menu. It’s around the table. We can’t wait to have you gather around ours. 



Located in the Cloister Main Building, Tavola offers authentic rustic Italian with Southern charm, family-style—tables full of food, meant to be savored and enjoyed with others. Plates of homemade ravioli, salads, and of course pizza fresh from the Mugnaini wood oven. And the soul of Italy around every table.
