It’s well known that Italians are deeply versed in the gioie della tavola, or “the joys of the table.” At La Tabella, the delight of the Italian long lunch or communal dinner is celebrated in the heart of Airlie Beach. We had a vision to bring a superior level of service and high-quality cuisine to Airlie Beach. La Tabella celebrates its reputation for raising the bar. Experience the elegance for yourself. Nonna’s long table can seat up to 20 people, inviting friends and family to revel in ravioli with a festive glass of Prosecco in hand. Al Fresco dining is available with one of the best beachfront positions in Airlie Beach. Italian taste is honoured, utilising fresh seasonal produce with bold flavour. The specials board changes daily, to allow for local seafood to be served soon after it’s caught. Pasta and gnocchi are made in-house daily as are the delicious desserts. Herbs are grown in gardens at the front of the restaurant for a true garden to plate experience and the extensive wine list features quality wines from Australia, New Zealand and Italy to complement the food.
“The standard of service comes down to the team being proud of where they work and confident in the quality of the food they serve. Some have been here for many years, it is them we have to thank for providing locals and visitors such a memorable dining experience.”
