Tavolo Opens August 9th

Word on the street is that Chris Douglass opens his third restaurant Tavolo tomorrow. It is located in the new Carruth Building adjacent to Ashmont Station on the red line. If the restaurant is up to Lower Dot expectations then expect a review in the next few weeks. Until then consider checking them out and let us know what you think.

Just got back from eating at Tavolo. The pizza and salads are a win; you can skip most of the pasta dishes, sadly. The service is a little clunky, but I'm sure that'll smooth out. It's a very pretty space -- big and airy. I hope it fills up.

The space is terrific, but the food needs improvement. Ordered 2 pizzas, and both were underwhelming as was the linguine and clams dish. Overall, the dishes were quite bland, and although we appreciate the lower price points, we wondered whether the money was well spent. Hopefully, in time Tavolo will improve and meet the higher expectations set by Ashmont Grill.
