Salty pizza

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... read 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.

Really good pizza. This downtown Isabelle restaurant is open only on week nights. It is full of locals, gringos as well as islanders. Lots of fun to see all of the families interacting. Take out is available, but better to enjoy the vibe inside.

Decent pizza and a barely passable salad. No wine to speak of. A bit overhyped from what we experienced.

We came for dinner our first night on the island. My husband and friend had the Bolognese and raved about it. I hand the shrimp piccata, not so much. The place was full of screaming kids, significantly distracted form our experience. Go only if there are no kids there

Taverna was a great choice for a dinner out on our second night in Vieques. This was my third time dining there and each time has been better than the last. Salad was fresh and delicious, pizza was spot on and pasta was flavorful. Our server Tammy was friendly and attentive. Only regret is that we didn't save room for... More

Taverna pizza ruined us for any other pizza. I bet we had pizza 4 or 5 times in the week we were on Vieques. Customer service was great they get to know you. By the middle of our stay they knew my name. Taverna Pizza and Bio Bay are 2 must do's

They know how to make a fantastic pie at Taverna. In fact, on our 7 day trip - we ate pizza 5 nights. The only reason we didn't hit 7 was because they are closed on Saturday and Sunday. Great service, they remember your name and were very welcoming to tourists. I want some pizza now!!

A fun family place with good Italian food. Good for large or small parties. Well air conditioned for folks not used to the heat. Nice bar too. Friendly service. Good spot in town.

My girlfriend and I had a great time with another couple. Please take servers recommendations. (Ally) and (Larissa) where awesome. Never thought I would like pizza with oysters. I believe it's called the north beach. I highly recommend everyone to go to tavernas and enjoy gourmet and quality at a casual setting!!!
