Located in the historic Art Deco building the Philtower, Tavolo is a new Italian fine dining concept just steps away from the Tulsa Performing Arts Center and other attractions in downtown Tulsa. Combining traditional Italian cuisine with modern dishes that can please any pallet, their menu consists of both lunch and dinner options, delicious desserts and an extensive wine list.
This two story restaurant houses a relaxed yet elegant bar on the ground floor that is perfect for weekend drinks and classy enough for a date. Ask for a seat on the second floor and be blown away by the architecture of the building while climbing a beautiful, iron staircase to your table.
If you are looking for a bit of authentic fare, Tavolo's antipasti options will have your mouth watering. Try the Piedmont Carpaccio made with locally raised beef, pecorino, lemon and fried caper or the Mushroom Arancini with fries risotto cakes, lemon bacon aioli and san marzano sauce for a few bites of heaven before your entree.
Their salads, flat bread pizzas, paninis and soups will leave you feeling satisfied. Order a pasta dish like the sweet corn and basil ravioli to taste their homemade noodles made daily that will have you coming back for more, or sample the Piedmont Beef, a seared filet served with brussels sprouts, pancetta, horseradish gremolata and banga cauda for a decadent main course.
Save room to end your experience at Tavolo with an authentic Italian sweet like tiramisu or strawberry sorbetto. The chocolate sponge cake with hazelnut tuile, warm nutella cream, raspberry and mascarpone gelato is a piece of paradise on a plate that can be paired with the perfect dessert wine from Tavolo's full bar.
