Good Italian food.

Great service and good food. We had the special fish. It was very good. Everyone said the pizza was great but we did not have it. Good wine selection.

The Greek salad is fabulous. Pizza was good. I ordered a ver plain pizza, but my friends had a couple of specialty pizzas and loved them.

We've been coming to Vieques for years & stumbled upon this out of the way Italian joint almost by accident. Happy accident I must say! Have returned on every trip. Aside from getting to see Dawn, Larissa & Tammy, the food rocks! Who would think great Italian on a Caribbean island? Pizza a New Yorker would be proud to serve... More

Never thought I'd be raving about an Italian restaurant on a Caribbean island! Taverna is a nice distraction from the usual Caribbean menu offerings. We loved everything! Fabulous pizzas, delicious pastas and scrumptious desserts. Hostess and wait staff were awesome. This is a lively, fun place to have a fantastic meal.

I have to admit that we were a bit skeptical going in but we were all very pleasantly surprised by how delicious the pizza is here. Service was prompt and friendly though the restaurant itself is lacking in atmosphere. Don't worry about that, you won't even notice it as you happily chow down on your pizza. I was also pleased...

Delicious pasta and pizzas! We ate at Taverna twice during our week in Vieques. The food is excellent and the service is awesome. Everyone that works there was really friendly and fun. White clam pizza and the greek pasta highly recommended. A lovely place!

Excellent thin crust pizzas with inventive toppings and the perfect salads to enjoy with your pizza. Friendly wait staff and a fun atmosphere. The pizza with Greek toppings and the white clam pizza are my favorites.

Had a large thin crust pizza which was hot and tasty with fresh ingredients. The atmosphere was so-so and quite loud. Good location.

Decided to try something simple like pizza, since Taverna is known for it's pizza. We ordered a meat lovers pizza. It was so very salty that you really didn't taste anything else, at all, even though there seemed to be plenty of different meats on it. IMO Lazy Jacks does a much better meat lovers pizza and the atmosphere is... More

The Iceberg Wedge and Greek salads were fresh and delicious. The White Buffalo Chicken was super tasty with Frank's Hot Sauce and the pepperoni pizza was great too. Patrons were happy.
