What You'll Get
Italian cuisine is renowned for its many variants of pasta, with noodles shaped like bow ties, the alphabet, and life-size replicas of fighter jets. Scarf up sculptural refreshment with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of Italian fare at Tavola Restaurant & Bar in Springfield.
Tavola's dinner menu enchants palates with an arsenal of meat and seafood dishes accented by savory Italian sauces. The chicken Tavola bathes in a cognac cream sauce and comes sided with asparagus and wild mushrooms ($17.50). A wild-mushroom demi-glace envelops the grilled 8-ounce filet mignon ($25) like a warm grandma hug. Seafood dishes abound in Tavola's kitchen, from the honey-chili-glazed grilled Jail Island salmon ($18) to the littleneck clams and capellini ($15), broadsiding cravings for maritime eats. The lunch menu offers lighter midday fare, including a turkey wrap with bacon and smoked gouda ($9) and a tangy-savory grilled Reuben ($9).
Tavola fosters a relaxed atmosphere replete with idyllic views of the outdoors and open-air seating on the patio for alfresco scenes of the countryside. Indoors, varnished wood and warm colors complete the cozy décor.

About Tavola Restaurant & Bar
It can be difficult to tear your gaze from Tavola Restaurant & Bar's dining-room windows, which overlook the lush rolling hills, majestic pines, and rustic gazebo of the surrounding country club. But soon, an enticing aroma compels your nose to turn toward the kitchen. Inside, chefs bustle about, folding fresh herbs, aromatic sauces, and crisp vegetables into a variety of Italian specialties—including the buttery shrimp scampi lauded by reporters from CBS Philly. A nearby brick oven melts mozzarella cheese onto gourmet pizzas.
The elegant dining room hosts diners swirling strings of pasta beside chandelier-illuminated oil paintings, and the cushy white sofas of the bar area support guests sipping Italian and American wines. Those seeking the best views venture to the outdoor patio, where they can watch seasoned golfers play on Springfield Country Club’s course or make sand angels in the sand traps.
