For nearly two decades, La Tavola has quietly enchanted Virginia-Highlanders—who are perfectly happy keeping this underappreciated beauty all to themselves. If only every neighborhood could be home to a high-quality Italian spot that harbors such a creative streak. Whether you’re in the mood for straightforward spaghetti and veal meatballs, deeply murky and oceanic zuppa di pesce, or just the housemade buttermilk ricotta and a glass of Sicilian red at the bar, you’ll be right at home. 992 Virginia Avenue, 404-873-5430,
