The restaurant options in Metairie continue to grow and expand, and now ‘a Tavola’ Restaurant & Wine Bar has opened on the Footprint of Lakeside Shopping Center. A Tavola, which means “at the table” is a family-friendly restaurant with an open kitchen serving lots of great Italian Food. Some of the dishes include wood-fired pizza, antipastis, soups and salads, paninis, sandwiches and even cheese platters.
We are so excited to bring our modern, Italian restaurant to Jefferson Parish. A Tavola is a place where families and friends can gather to enjoy each other’s company while enjoying a great meal. We can’t wait to have you around our table. ~ Marv Ammari, Creole Cuisine CEO – WEBSITE
a Tavola Restaurant Food Menu
The Creole Cuisine Culinary Director, Steven Marsella, crafted a menu that has the favorite classics like calamari, veal parmigiano and pastas, but has gone a step further. He has sourced the dry pasta from Italy that is “brass extruded, giving it a rough texture, which helps the sauce cling to the pasta.” The facaccia is baked fresh daily and served warm to the table. The gelato and sorbetto are supplied by local dessert maker Piccola Gelateria.
