Enjoyed our lunchtime visit. The risotto was delicious and the salads huge. All the tables are inside so be aware it can be warm. One of the rooms has a frescoed ceiling. The staff are friendly and helpful. Good value.

We went for dinner at La Taverna three times in a four night stay in Urbino. The service- which can seem a bit indifferent on the first visit- is a bit of an acquired taste, but we got to quite like it. More importantly, though, the food was outstanding across the board. The strozzapreti (an Urbino speciality) with salmon is truly sublime; the pizzas are similarly brilliant. Get the Braesaola with rocket and Grana Padano as antipasti.

Just a couple of tips for getting the most out of La Taverna: first, disregard the complimentary bread. It is a nice gesture but a bit stale. Secondly, make sure to ask for a specific wine rather than the house stuff, which comes out of barrels and is extremely basic.

Buon appetito!

This is a very busy, very lively tavern located in an underground vault, popular with small groups as well as couples. It consists of several traditionally furnished rooms.
Service was very friendly, cheerful, and accommodating. I started with one of Marche's (and Umbria's) favourite pastas, excellent strozzapreti which were served with speck and spinach in a delicious cream sauce. The supreme of chicken consisted of three generous pieces of beautifully cooked chicken in a delectable gorgonzola sauce with lots of meaty, very tasty porcini mushrooms, and accompanied by a good mixed salad. After these delights there was no room for dessert! They don't do half bottles of wine, but the carafe of red house wine was more than acceptable. I ordered a grappa with my espresso, which was offered on the house. The bill, including water and tip, was EUR34, not unreasonable for a nice dinner in congenial surroundings.

Went for lunch and was pleased pizza was available (most restaurants in Italy serve pizza at dinner time only). The pizza was good as were several other dishes we had. Definitely vegetarian friendly.

I live in Italy and am married to an Italian, and whenever we visit Urbino we always eat at this restaurant. The food is fresh, well cooked and simple, and I recommend it highly for those travellers who want to eat authentic Italian food in a restaurant favoured by the locals. The home-made pasta is particularly good.
