A Tavola was established in 2007 in buzzing Darlinghurst on Victoria Street by chef and owner Eugenio Maiale. A Tavola quickly earned its reputation as one of Sydney’s best places to go for authentic Italian pasta. The long marble table is filled with loyal and regular diners – all seduced by the simplicity and honesty of Eugenio’s food and especially his love of good pasta. The cuisine can be described as predominantly “Abruzzese” with a heavy emphasis on dried and fresh pasta all made in-house and cooked to order. His dream was to create a unique Italian experience. He has done this by creating what has been described as a “euro chic” dining space which revolves around a 10-meter long communal Indian marble table.
