Good menu with vegan andgluten free options.

One of the few restaurants on Vieques where you can get decent food at reasonable prices. They offer basic Italian food, including a thin crust pizza. The other restaurants on Vieques seem to be BBQ or expensive fine dining menus.

Great place - huge pizzas, fresh pasta and innovative ideas. A nice change from the average PR fare. Friendly service and a good lime pie for dessert. Recommended and good value too. Little tricky to find in town but worth the effort.

No matter how hard these people try, when you Had real Italian food you just kindly pay the bill and wish you never came. Place is clean and ok for those whom think Italian food is chicken parmigiana and spaghetti with meatballs or that a lasagna is made with ricotta cheese and prego sauce. Sorry.

So glad I was convinced to try La Taverna—I wasn't too sure about Italian on a tropical island in the Caribbean, but this place was so solidly delicious. Service was excellent, and dinner was even better. Ambiance was meh- but the food is what mattered most and it did not disappoint once. Antipasto was flavorful and thoughtful— lots of little...

Ordered takeout pizza -- to walk back to our rental home for a group of ten of varying ages and tastes. So, the crust was a bit soft due to travel time (on us). But, the pizza -- even for those of us from Chicago and NYC -- was exceptional! All were delicious, but the Mediterranean was the winner...by a... More

Like all our dining experiences on Vieques, we made a reservation. We ordered the Mediterranean salad to start which was huge and definitely filling for two people. Keeping with that theme, we ordered the large Mediterranean pizza which was huge. The pizza tasted like it was on a whole wheat crust, but hard to tell in the lighting. It was... More

We happened upon this quaint little restaurant one evening. It was very nice inside. When we arrived we were asked if we had a reservation, which we did not. They were able to seat us and I am so glad they did. The food was amazing. We had the Mediterranean pizza and added sausage. It was perfect. We also had... More

Taverna is our favorite restaurant on Vieques--delicious pizzas, pastas, fresh salads and a really friendly/fun staff. Eat in or take out, you will not be disappointed.

We had pizza and pasta - and lots of fun cocktails. A neat little place if you want to try some Italian on your visit to the area. We needed a break from the local foods, and this place provided a great meal.
