La Taverna is the best Italian Restaurant I have been going to over the years. This is the place where my engagement dinner was celebrated & that of my daughter over two years ago. Last March I passed by as the restaurant was being boarded up. To my mind, ah well, it will be nice come Christmas time to have... More

Wanted to go here tonight but it's now a real Greek restaurant and we prefer latino taverna for Greek!

We always have an excellent meal here. The raw tuna Carpaccio starter is superb, but my wife prefers the Palma ham and melon .The pasta or meat dishes are always tasty and well presented. They have a real sweet trolley from which you can make interesting selections. Being close to the theatre it is perfect for a pre or after... More

A very disappointing visit to Windsor. The quality of the food was not good, the tomato sauces were watery and lacking in flavour and far below the standard one would expect. I can make better Italian food at home.

Very good restaurant with a nice atmosphere and good food. Friendly staff too. Dishes are just the right size, not too big. Had the veal which was good. The tiramisu was very good too. Restaurant is on two floors.

Been going to this restaurant for over 20 years and could count on one hand the number of times that I have eaten steakhouse, but the loin of beef that I ate on Wednesday 12th February was fabulous. Perfectly cooked, full of flavour and served with an excellent red wine sauce. Starters of hot avocado and prawn in a cream... More

I first went to this restaurant as a schoolgirl of 13 in 1974! It was a wonderful experience. Nearly 40 years later, a visit is still a wonderful experience! From the moment that you walk in, the staff make it their business to ensure that you have a good time. Friendly, smiling, charming, efficient: nothing is too much trouble. No... More

Went here with 3 friends just before Christmas, the food was excellent right down to the freshly and well prepared vegetables (which so often in restaurants these days are rather disappointing). We all had different starters and mains and everything was delicious. Service was very efficient.

Old-school waiters what know the menu by heart and know how to serve it and when. Appetisers, mains and desserts all to die for. You will not leave this place sickly stuffed (unless you choose to do so) but you will leave satisfied with a smile on your face from eating one of the best italian means outside Italy. Great...

We have been going to Dom Pepino's for 30 years since it opened and we have never been disappointed! Service, food, ambience are all sophisticated to a high degree
