Before we knew anything about crudo and sformatino, Italian food meant piccata, marsala, and saltimbocca, and that’s the kind of classic Italian-American fare that La Tabella specializes in. The menu is stocked with the aforementioned standards, which are done well, but there’s still enough creativity in the preparations to satisfy the family food snob. While the kids slurp down spaghetti and meatballs, you can fork into a tender pork osso bucco, which is actually the whole shank, gently braised, slathered in sauce, and served atop a beautifully prepared mushroom risotto. Or you can opt for a fresh version of seafood fra diavalo or linguine and clams and be just as satisfied. —Jeff Allen (Charleston City Paper) , Dish (Summer 2012)

I hate to admit it but I live on James Island and had no idea this place existed. I am so glad my girlfriend wanted to eat there. A little snug if crowded but the service is great, the bartender is top notch and the food is excellent.

Great find on JI! If you want killer Italian on the island and tremendous service, go check these guys out! Our new clubhouse for sure! Try the Chicken Picatta or Eggplant Parm!

So this has been an excellent find in our neighborhood. If you want excellent food, with a family friendly environment then this is a place for you. A great selection of wine is available. I won’t tell you when wine Wednesday is so that I can still get a table…

Best thing to happen to James Island!!!  Fantastic Italian cuisine and house specialties. This restaurant never disappoints and it’s obvious that many James Islanders feel the same way.  Who needs downtown?
