A Tavola (Weekly Event)

Every Tuesday
5pm – 8pm

Join us every Tuesday evening for A Tavola! Meaning “to the table,” a tavola (pronounced “a TAH-voh-lah”) is a casual dining experience inspired by Francis’s favorite way of enjoying a meal. Instead of ordering from menus, our chef prepares a variety of dishes and sends them to your table. It’s great way to enjoy a meal and a lot of fun for the whole family.

Menu price is $49 for adults, $15 for children (12 & under) not including tax and gratuities. Drinks charged separately. Final seating for A Tavola is at 8pm.
