La Tabella Trattoria
Question - what are all the very best Italian restaurants famous for? Answer - their fantastic coffee and their homemade pasta. These are just two of the reasons why customers of La Tabella Trattoria choose to dine here, but there's a lot more to it than just pasta and coffee.
To begin with there's the restaurant's location right on the Esplanade, the closest you'll get to the beach without being on it, then there's the authentic, elegant interior complete with a sexy Italian marble cocktail bar. There's a bar menu complete with a mouth watering antipasto selection, and in addition to this, you can choose to 'be cool' and enjoy your meal in the private air conditioned indoor dining area or dine al fresco.
With all day dining, La Tabella Trattoria is a place where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner every day of the week. Start the day with a real cooked breakfast and freshly squeezed juice, have a light pasta bowl for lunch, or if you're out and about and don't arrive back in town until later, you're in for a great treat. A famous Italian tradition is a plate of mixed antipasti accompanied by a chilled glass of wine. If you're at La Tabella Trattoria between 3pm and 5.30pm and you order an antipasto, you get a complimentary glass of house wine thrown in. Of course, if you're here during the evening you'll most certainly want to sample the home made pasta. Freshly prepared each day on the premises, the pasta is cooked to perfection in a variety of sauces from marinara to arrabbiata, there's even a gluten free option so guests with an intolerance don't miss out on the experience. To accompany the glorious antipasti, the homemade pasta, fresh seafood, red beef and mouth watering Italian desserts such as semifreddo, tiramisu, pannacotta and sorbets there's a large wine list with some Italian favourites. Don't forget the affogato or espresso to finish.
La Tabella features 'The Table', a beautiful 5.4 metre locally hand crafted timber table, the perfect choice for group bookings of up to 20 people, or communal dining Italian style with mamma, papà and all the little bambini. La Tabella can accommodate even the biggest family or group of friends who want to get together to eat and talk in a private air-conditioned dining area. This is a popular venue for birthday parties, engagement and intimate weddings. You can enjoy the views from the breakfast or pasta bar, and of course, if you're looking for a private and romantic diner for two, the main restaurant will make you equally as welcome.
Pasta and fresh seafood, red beef, the finest local produce and some serious cocktails make La Tabella Trattoria the place to visit in Airlie Beach if you're a fan of the Italian lifestyle...and if you mention My Guide Whitsundays, you'll receive a free dessert when you order two main courses, now that's a good deal.
You may visit other restaurants for their décor, their staff or because of their food, but why compromise with just one or two good points when you can have the complete package at La Tabella Trattoria: this is the home of great food, friendly staff, Coral Sea views, and a fantastic ambience.
