At the Italian Table –
“A tavola non s’invecchia mai” – At table one never ages.
Old Italian Saying
Join Chef Gina Stipo At the Italian Table, 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 extensive and chosen to compliment the food. We offer communal dinners for up to 20 people, Wednesday thru Saturday, and demonstration cooking classes for 10 on Tuesday evenings. We welcome individuals, couples, small and large groups to join us for a fun evening of Italian food and wine!
Our communal dinners are served Wednesday-Saturday at 7 p.m. Upon arrival, you are offered a welcoming aperitivo, 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 by Chef Gina on her frequent trips, or are sourced from local farmers. The herbs come from our extensive herb garden outside.
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. Bring a group of family or friends to celebrate a birthday or anniversary.
Chef Gina spent 13 years in Tuscany where she had a cooking school, Ecco La Cucina, and she offers demonstration cooking classes for 8-10 people every Tuesday from 6:30-9:30. Fresh pasta is always on the menu and is hands-on, informative and fun. The class includes an antipasto, which is eaten during class, fresh pasta or gnocchi, and dessert, which are enjoyed at the table at 9:00 pm. Wine is available from our extensive wine list.
We welcome you to join us for a delicious dinner or for a hands on cooking class soon!
