“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2010

Some of the best pizzas I've ever had. Very thin - suggest sharing between two, they don't mind - with efficiient service from the predominantly young staff. Great value.

“Great service, Excellent Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2010

Lovely little restaurant, tucked away in one of the quiet, traffic free streets of Bolsena. Tables available both inside and outside on the street. Very suitable in our case as the weather was very hot in June. Ate there twice as we so enjoyed the food.
The challenge is to eat a starter AND one of their giant thin crust pizzas!! The second night we settled for a starter each and a shared Pizza. Total cost including bread sticks, water and half a liter of wine approx 25 euros. Wish we were back there!!!

“Fantastic food at a fantastic price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2010

Had a lovely meal at La Tavernetta. We had a choice of where to sit - in the courtyard, inside or out on the street. We chose to sit out on the street which really gave our meal a lovely atmosphere. The Pizzas are enormous and really are far too big for one person if you have a starter. You can share a pizza or ask for a box to take the leftovers home. We couldn't fit in the ricotta desert which we planned to have! Staff were very friendly and attentive. Value for money was amazing.

“Fun atmosphere, excellent value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2009

3 dinners overall at La Tavernetta. We couldn't tear ourselves away, plus the affordability was excellent. Amazing rocket/rucola (arugula) and mozzarella salad. Pasta, meats, fish and... oh yes.... HUGE thin-crust pizzas baked in traditional Italian style. Crispy, delicious, and virtually unfinishable. Desserts are excellent here as well. Staff is very helpful. Very nice bistecca fiorentina (steak florentine) served here as well.

We were offered free limoncello (lemon liqueur) after our second visit, with dessert. Very delicious, and HIGHLY potent! (Driving not recommended after comsumption. We declined their kind offer on the 3rd visit. *LOL*)

La Tavernetta is a stroll down the ancient Corso Cavour between Piazza Matteotti and Piazza San Rocco. As such, unless you are driving a Vespa, there is no parking -- you would have to park in Piazza Matteotti (good luck with that) or down another 2 blocks at the municipal pay lot (but at dinnertime when we went, the pay lot was actually "free").

The atmosphere is attractive as osterias go, and mostly comfortable, although brightly lit at night. They could possibly do with a table or two less (slightly cramped), but still enjoyable.
