    Server was terrible. Atmosphere was perfect and the food tasted great, though small portions for the price. Would go again as long as I had a different server.

    There were two of us and we ordered two glasses of prosecco (we wanted that as our pre dinner drink) and then a bottle of wine - the waiter turned up with one wine glass and walked away. 20 mins later I asked where the prosecco was and he came back with one glass of prosecco and a single carafe of wine - it was another 15 minutes before we got the two glasses of prosecco and then the bottle of wine arrived. I ordered mushroom pizza to be told 10 mins later they did not have it. The lasagne I then ordered was luke warm - I had lost the will to complain. On a plus we got the two glasses of prosecco on the house -but when the bill arrived they were still on it.

    Loved the food and the ambience. The host, and I'm guessing the manager, were great. Our server was a bit overwhelmed with a large party, so we had to flag her down or ask someone else if we needed something. Willing to try again as I do think there were extenuating circumstances.

    First time dining there and we will not be back based on the food. That's why we go out to eat, for the food. The prices were very high compared to the quality of the food, so the value isn't there. It was $70 for 1 Lasagna and 2 Gnocchi dishes, and for those prices, I was expecting a lot more. Our server was good, but it was hard to gauge because the restaurant was nearly empty. Caesar Salad was mostly the white part of the romaine lettuce, very heavy on the dressing and a bit salty. It didn't live up to the photos on the website at all. Lasagna Al Forno was mediocre at best, but it's hard to mess up a lasagna. Gnocchi Di Patate Rustici was below average. Two of us ordered it and it was not homemade as the menu said, it was over-cooked, nearly mushy, and the short rib ragu was way too thick for the gnocchi. We didn't bother to have dessert. One good thing is if you want a very very strong drink, this is the place to go because the bartender had a very very heavy-hand. This was more like a dressed-up Maggiano’s.

    This is a restaurant my wife and I have been to many times (within walking distance for us), but we had taken a break of a year+. It was a Monday night and the restaurant was no more than 35% full. Some irritating changes in the past year that made the overall experience less friendly and accommodating: 1) In the past they had always cheerfully agreed to serve their calamari dish with grilled calamari (vs fried as described on the menu). Last night they refused saying a new chef is very rigid. A long standing part of their menu, it’s a good dish combining shrimp and vegetables—and much healthier when grilled. One of my favorites. Why would they refuse a seemingly simple customer request? 2) My wife and I decided to share a salad and pasta dish. We asked if the kitchen would split the items for us. The server told us the kitchen would not split the items in the kitchen, but he would bring share plates and we could split ourselves. We would have happily paid a split charge BTW. No biggie in the long run, but why refuse? They weren’t busy. 3) Our pasta dish was incredibly smaller than in our previous visits. A victim of inflation no doubt, but the reduction was dramatic—is inflation 50%+?. Appetizer portions of pasta dishes at Pricci nearby are larger. In fairness, the food was good as it’s always been. But the friendly and accommodating vibe that has been a big part of Taverna’s appeal was missing. Found myself focusing on irritation rather than the food.

    Heard such great reviews and was very excited to go. Sadly the food was below average. Service was great and their Monday half price bottles of wine was nice. Won’t be back though unfortunately due to the low quality of food.
