About Us

 
A Tavola, Italian for "at the table", is an expression more commonly used to beckon friends and family to the table when it is time to eat.  Nathan and Bonnie Snow chose to open an Italian trattoria in the Hudson Valley based on that same principal.  With inspiration drawn from the Italian countryside, A Tavola focuses on fresh local produce and ingredients in a rustic, family-style atmosphere.  The seasonally inspired menu centers on bringing the farm to the table and includes many creative homemade pasta dishes inspired by classics found throughout Italy.  Mismatched farm tables set under candlelight call diners to the table to enjoy a crescendo of rustic country fare.  Whether stopping by for a small antipasto and a glass of wine at the bar, or enjoying a meal with friends, A Tavola evokes the true art of Italian dining.    

With a combined 18 years of cooking in New York City, chefs and owners Nathan and Bonnie Snow have brought their talents to New Paltz to share their take on countryside Italian.  After earning his culinary degree from the Institute of Culinary Education in Manhattan, Nathan explored his love for Italian food while working at some of New York City's best Italian restaurants. While helping to open A Voce under Andrew Carmellini, Nathan honed his culinary skills, and then went on to be the Chef De Cuisine of Sfoglia on Manhattan's upper east side.  Most recently Nathan was the chef de cuisine of famed Al Di La in Park Slope, Brooklyn. 

Bonnie Snow holds a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Hofstra University, as well as a culinary degree from the Institute of Culinary Education.  She spent 8 years working for JP Morgan Chase on Wall Street, and then decided to pursue her true passion cooking.  Bonnie has spent the last 6 years working in the culinary industry in New York City.  She was most recently the Chef de Cuisine of Sfoglia Restaurant and she now brings her delicious bread and sweets to your table!

Stop in to A Tavola almost any evening and allow the warm country villa atmosphere, exquisite food and wine, and genuine hospitality draw you in...and leave you longing to return to the table!
