My husband and I went for dinner and it was pricey, but delightful. The parmesan truffle fries appetizer were DELICIOUS! My husband had the wedge salad and I had the barrata mozzarella caprese salad that was yummy, although I would prefer balsamic vinegar to the fig chutney. I had the ravioli and added the hanger steak to it, and although... More

This restaurant has a beautiful, locally sourced menu. We had excellent service, and everything from the appetizers to dessert was clearly carefully considered by the chef and staff. I am a picky eater who looks for healthy but tasty, fresh options and this is a perfect, upscale spot for this! The space is calming and well-appointed, not noisy. Great wine... More

I have been here many times and the food is always wonderful. I went on my Birthday and they offered me a mimosa or cookies. I decided on cookies, they were so fresh and a good variety. Service was excellent, the food takes a while, it is made to order. I normally go for lunch and get a salad with... More

This restaurant has a lovely ambiance and delicious food. I like that they have both indoor and outdoor seating with a nice view of San Marco Square. I especially love their Bucatini Crab Carbonara. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Can't wait to get back to enjoy it again!

I was invited to lunch with a friend and we ended up at Taverna! I had only had dinner here (several times!) I am happy to say that lunch is just as delightful as dinner. I had the Cobb salad and it was crispy and very fresh.

Very nice! Great wines, nice atmposphere. Its highly doubtful that average locals are frequent at this place, and the slight upcharge for drinks is well worth it.

My husband and I have been to Taverna several times and it never disappointed. The food had always been fresh and delicious. However, we were less than impressed on this last visit. It seems that management changed and the restaurant has suffered. Taverna has a beautiful bar. So how is it they only has 2 beer selections? I ordered a... More

Went on a Saturday night with reservations for 8:30. We were immediately seated. The waiter was super personable and did a great job of explaining the menu and helping pick a wine. I ordered the special sirloin steak with crab meat and crispy fingerling potatoes. The steak was slightly overcooked for my medium request, but no biggie. Everything was delicious... More

This restaurant deserves to be in the top 5 in Jax. It is laughable that anyone would rate Maggianos higher. The food at Taverna is authentic and most importantly homemade and of the highest quality ingredients. We've been several times and it is always a delight. We live within walking distance of Maggianos and will never return. The difference in... More

We usually pop into Taverna after Sunday services at our church across the street. Call ahead if you want an outside table or you can opt for the communal table. It's fun to watch people passing by along San Marco Square. The bar is also a good option for dining. The main dining room can be a bit sterile in... More
