"We have too many places at the table."
Translation:Abbiamo troppi posti a tavola.
a table with legs without the things for eating is a table (tavolo) A table 'dressed' for a meal becomes a tavola. The usual translation would be al tavolo or alla tavola. a tavola is at table or to table. The sentence is specific at the table. I translated it as al tavolo and was adjudged correct.
