We went to La Taverna for lunch on a recent stay in Spartanburg. We has bruschetta for an appetizer, and it was enjoyable. The tomatoes were fresh, and the bread was well toasted. We also enjoyed the breadsticks that came after we ordered lunch--hot and fresh from the oven, with oil and balsamic vinegar on the table for dipping. For... More

La Taverna is one of my favorite restaurants and I cook a lot of Italian at home. A lot of food for the price and delicious. Wine and warm bread are the bonus highlights.

My husband and I frequent La Taverna and have never had any problems with Chef Rosario or the food. Chef Rosario strikes me as a man that does not put up with crap, and I like that about him. He seems very reasonable and is always polite when we come in. The food is top notch. If you eat at... More

Definitely not the best Italian in Spartanburg. Renato's is the best Italian restaurant without comparison (probably best restaurant period). The food here was ok. Waited quite a while for the food, and pasta was not very hot, which was disappointing. The olive oil that is used to dipping, was very bland, almost tasted watered down. Might go back, might not.

I don't know what "Martha" is so angry about, but it seems she should take time to check her facts before posting them in a public forum. I have eaten at this restaurant since it opened, plus i worked here for more than two years, and I can testify to the fact that employees who work well and do their... More
