I recently had the pleasure of being invited along to a launch party at the newly opened Tavola bar and restaurant in Leamington Spa. Leamingtonians will remember the site as being the former home of Bar 44, but stepping over the threshold you are now met with a light and airy take on 1920s style glamour with an Italian flair.

Head Chef, Martin, hails from Tuscany, and the rich flavours of Italian cuisine course through the carefully selected menu choices. This includes a varied drinks menu as well as food. Being vegan, sometimes I find that options are limited. On the printed menu, there certainly doesn’t appear to be much variety for vegans or vegetarians. The beauty of freshly prepared dishes and a knowledgeable chef though, is that dietary preferences can be accommodated and suggestions offered.

The ambiance of Tavola, with its above bar curtain, vintage lighting, and velvet seating, create a luxurious yet cozy atmosphere. The vibe on the night was definitely a comfortable and friendly one, somewhere you could imagine stepping into directly after work and staying until final orders. Yes, guests were happy, but so too were the staff.

Aside from great company, the highlight of the evening for me, somewhat surprisingly, were the non-alcoholic cocktails. The mixes were delicious, not a word I would normally apply to a drink. There was real variety too, so whatever I may have chosen to eat I could be sure of finding a complementary beverage.

I only have the one evening on which to base my review but I am sure that I will return. The experience at Tavola has left me feeling confident that my set of dietary needs would be easily accommodated leaving me to enjoy a meal out there. For readers looking for a romantic dinner or special night out with friends, I would highly recommend exploring the offerings of Tavola.

N.B. I was invited along as a guest to the Tavola launch party, however all thoughts as always are my own. To take a look at the menus and make a booking, please visit the Tavola website.
