After realizing that La Taverna reopened, I promptly made lunch plans to go with my husband this afternoon. The food was just as good as I remember. We had a wonderful experience with prompt, friendly service and a delicious meal complete with warm bread, yummy house salad dressing, and scrumptious entrees. We will definitely be back regularly again.

Prices were very expensive for the small amount you receive on your plate. It was very hot inside the restaurant and when we told our waitress it was hot, she informed us that it is always hot in there and that the kitchen staff roasts and the current owners do not care. She told them about how hot it was... More

Very nice decor and atmosphere. Wait staff and manager were extremely attentive and pleasant. We had a single pizza with extra cheese and pepperoni which was excellent. We also had the lasagna which had a what I can only describe as a "Mexican" flair to it. I think it was the sauce. It was tasty but not what I expected... More

La Taverna was a pleasant surprise. They make most on their menu from scratch, and you can taste the care and quality ingredients in their food. I had the eggplant parm. and it was outstanding. My wife ordered chicken alfredo and it too was exceptional. their average diner price for pasta dishes was about eleven or twelve dollars. We also... More

I am so glad Rafael Meza has reopened La Taverna. It is back with a vengeance! I have eaten there three times since the reopening, and have been impressed each time. I am a big fan of pasta carbonara, and La Taverna's is delish! On whatever pasta one wants. If it's not on the menu, they'll make if for you... More

This restaurant has been closed for a while after the original owner passed away. It has been reopened by one of the former staff and much of the wait staff is the same. We ordered pizza as a take out and it was top notch!

Same great menu with Naples, Italy inspired recipes. No heavy garlicky seasoning. If you are not big on pasta, they offer a side of steamed veggies. Everything we have tried over the years is tasty and plentiful including several Chef's Specials of the night. If you want smaller portions and prices, go for lunch or order their fabulous pizza. We... More

Service was great and the food was better. Mother's Day is usually hit or miss due to the crowds service and food quality. La Taverna did a fantastic job on all accounts. The waitress was great new the menu and checked in at all the right times. We shall return. Recommendations : calamari, all the pizzas and the osso bocco.
