A hidden gem of a restaurant

Located on a street full of restaurants, this one is slightly off the beaten path, but should be a main destination for good food in Bridgeport. Small plates are featured, and they are full of the flavor one would expect. The portion sizes are slightly bigger than at other "small plate... read more

For lunch we had the Jamon prosciutto thinly sliced , and perfect with Serrano cheese. Followed by chicken Milanese, and fresh mussels with pasta. This place is a real gem. In order to stay open in Bridgeport you have to be excellent to own a fine dining establishment. Or there is no reason to come here. As usual taberna never... More

I would say our meal was good. Flavors were good but nothing stood out as great. The portions were a little on the small side considering the prices. We sat outside on a wonderful evening and found the location to be relaxing although in the middle of a residential neighborhood. Wait staff was very very friendly and polite. Best service... More

Taberna has been at their current location for seven years. It's a gem. Staff is courteous, attentive, and accommodating. Menu selection has something for eveyone. The seafood paella is a meal in itself. For a party of seven, the food came out cooked perfectly. Sangria is refreshing. Will dine again at Taberna. Watch for their nee location in Fairfield in...

I planned a cousin's reunion at Taberna for 30 people. Daniel the owner was so helpful and worked with me on the party menu. The food and service the night of the party was excellent. Everyone who came was so impressed with Taberna. I would definitely have another function there. I can't say enough about Daniel. He is so nice.

I bought a restaurant.com coupon for this restaurant because i thought it was a different restaurant on the same street that i wanted to try. Even though it ended up being something different we went in any ways and i am so glad we did. This is a nice, classy mediterranean restaurant with delicious food. Best fried calamari in the...

My husband and I went here on Valentine's day, 8 pm reservation. Allow me to preface by saying that we are discerning 5-star diners, and that I lived in Italy for 4.5 years, so eating at any Italian/Mediterranean restaurant is always a gamble of authenticity for me. We were seated in a lovely room, warmly decorated for soft romance. A... More
