We went for dinner at La Taverna three times in a four night stay in Urbino. The service- which can seem a bit indifferent on the first visit- is a bit of an acquired taste, but we got to quite like it. More importantly, though, the food was outstanding across the board. The strozzapreti (an Urbino speciality) with salmon is... More

This is a very busy, very lively tavern located in an underground vault, popular with small groups as well as couples. It consists of several traditionally furnished rooms. Service was very friendly, cheerful, and accommodating. I started with one of Marche's (and Umbria's) favourite pastas, excellent strozzapreti which were served with speck and spinach in a delicious cream sauce. The... More

Went for lunch and was pleased pizza was available (most restaurants in Italy serve pizza at dinner time only). The pizza was good as were several other dishes we had. Definitely vegetarian friendly.

I live in Italy and am married to an Italian, and whenever we visit Urbino we always eat at this restaurant. The food is fresh, well cooked and simple, and I recommend it highly for those travellers who want to eat authentic Italian food in a restaurant favoured by the locals. The home-made pasta is particularly good.

It's hard to ruin a meal in the Marche region of Italy-It's a beautiful area with wonderful local cuisine. However this restaurant broke a cardinal rule-serving stale RE-USED bread. I saw this myself-my children commented on how bad the bread tasted (which you have to pay a cover charge for) and yes it was stale. After 2 hours of terrible... More

Up a side street and a bit off the beaten path, this Taverna is an ideal place to absorb some of the local culture while enjoying some really good food. It is a place frequented by "locals" which is part of its charm. We began our meal with "Cozzee", tender and delicious. This was followed by "Strozzapretti con salmone, asparagi,... More

Went here on recommendation from our hotel. A mistake. We were hungry for pizza this evening and ordered Capriciosa. This was without doubt the most tasteless pizza I've eaten so far in my life. No cosy feeling here. We wanted to leave as soon as possible.There were very few people there.

I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. I travel to Cortona very often and always have a meal here. It is an old style restaurant with old photos on the walls and a traditional interior. The atmosphere is fantastic, you can sit and people watch on the tables outside and watch the world go by. I love the service, to watch... More
