I was introduced to La Taverna by a dear friend who cooks and knows good food. Her recommendation was spot on. We have dined there twice now, both meals were outstanding, and the price was quite reasonable. All the dishes we've had were great, and the salads are particularly tasty and inventive. The hostess/owner is delightful.

We have been going to La Taverna since we moved here three years ago. The owner/hostess/waitperson never fails to make us feel welcome and the food is a always great. The best Chicken Scarpiello and the dressing on the inslata mista - a balsamic vinaigrette - is superb. I want that recipe. Prices are very reasonable.

We have been avid customers for over 15 years and our son (now 12) always chooses this for his birthday - his favorite is "little ears" (pasta) baked with tiny meatballs - so addictive!!! Veal chop when available, clams in wine sauce, calamari, even the bread basket - so delicious! But the service is why we continue to come back... More

The food is really excellent and the prices are very modest. The service is great, warm and friendly. It is a terrific unknown jewel.

This was the second time dining at La Taverna. The first time the food was amazing but the second time not so impressed. The decor is really what keeps us from going back more. It is so dated and old inside. Just a few new tablecloths and some candles on the table would help as would a new paint job... More

If you are seeking an affordable date night out, look no further than La Taverna. There is a special pre-fixe menu for two on certain days of the week that includes, salad, entree choice, bottle of wine, and coffee/tea, The meal was tasty and sufficient to satisfy. Adding an ala carte appetizer or dessert would complete the meal. By the... More

Atmosphere leaves a little to be desired - needs updating. But the service is impeccable and the food is delicious. Would go back.
