At the Italian Table –
“A tavola non s’invecchia mai” – At table one never ages.
Old Italian Saying
At the Italian Table is a new and original micro-restaurant concept on Frankfort Ave between the Crescent Hill and Clifton neighborhoods. In the true style of an Italian osteria, the cuisine is authentic regional Italian fare, the atmosphere and dining is informal and friendly, and the Italian wine list is simple and chosen to go with the food. We offer communal dinners for up to 20 people, Wednesday thru Saturday, and hands-on cooking classes on Tuesday evenings. Come with a group of friends or join us on your own to make new friends!
Our communal dinners are served Wednesday-Saturday at 7 p.m. You are served a welcoming aperitivo on arrival and when everyone is ready, we put ten people around the old chestnut table and eight people around the antique oak table and we begin with an antipasto, continuing with the fresh pasta and main courses. After dinner, dessert is served and espresso offered. Many of the ingredients for the meal have been brought back from Italy with Chef Gina on her frequent trips, or are sourced from local farmers, and the herbs come from the kitchen garden by the front door. The communal dinners do not include a cooking class or demonstration.
It’s not necessary to get a group of ten friends together; you can join us on your own or with your spouse and make new friends around the table, chatting about shared experiences over a glass of wine and excellent meals that reflect the home-cooking of Italy’s many regions.
Chef Gina spent 13 years in Tuscany where she had a cooking school, Ecco La Cucina, and she offers hands-on cooking classes for 8-10 people every Tuesday from 6:30-9:30. We always make fresh pasta and the classes are hands-on, informative and fun. After making three traditional dishes from various Italian regions, we then eat what we’ve made! The cooking class is not followed by a four-course meal.
We welcome you to join us for a delicious dinner or for a hands on cooking class soon!

Cancellation Policy and Payment Details: We try to be as flexible as possible and understand that cancellations are occasionally going to happen. A $100 non-refundable deposit will be taken on groups of 6 or more.
NOTE: new cancellation policy: If someone in your group must cancel and you do not call 24 hours ahead to alert us of a cancellation in your party, you will be charged for the number of people you reserved for, not the number that actually come for dinner. We are a small dining concept and the demand is high. We have a waiting list and will try to fill the empty seats but that may be impossible at very short notice. Please respect this policy and notify us as soon as possible if someone in your party can’t come.
