“Interesting menu.”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Very nice for lunch, more of a sports bar type of place. However, they have a very interesting menu, especially for this sort of place.

“Confused atmosphere”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

This restaurant doesn't know whether it wants to be an Italian bistro or a sports bar, kind of a mix of both. Have eaten here many times, food is inconsistent, can be very good sometimes and not so on other occasions. Limited, but decent menu. Food is also available to take and bake at home which is nice. Good spot for lunch, maybe not so much for dinner.

“Not bad, great service!”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

My wife and I were visiting Eau Claire and friends took us to Taverna for the Friday night fish fry. We were seated immediately and ordered promptly. Our food was brought in a timely fashion and was hot and tasty. The atmosphere was noisy and a bit close but it is a great place to go for a quick meal.

“Ok ...but”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Taverna is a relatively new restaurant owned by the family who runs Dragonnetti's. The fare here is more bar-and-grill and they advertize a fish fry Friday nights. Room is much smaller than you'd think from the outside - tables close together and absolutely no privacy whatsoever. This makes the noise factor fairly loud if the table next to you is in a party mood. However, it's a nice atmosphere, clean, simple and yet lots of big windows - that overlook a parking lot. A nice feature is an outside dining patio, but again, borders blacktop parking lot with noise and gas fumes. Very reasonable prices. They had plenty of staff to wait tables and food arrived fairly quickly. Had to send the baked fish, which was tastless, and the baked potato back to kitchen as the plate had arrived luke-warm for some reason. The potato must have been laying around for quite a while as the skin was tough and interior really soggy. My partner's meal was better - but they ordered the batter fried fish, which was described as 'really good'. I suspect the batter and the tar-tar sauce masked the lack of fish flavor. The same tiramisu served at Dragonnetti's is at Tavernas, as well, - but a whopping $7.25/slice. Jury is out on whether I will make a return trip with so many restaurants offering really superior tasting fish.

“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

The outdoor seating is beautiful despite it overlooking a parking lot. The food is usually really good. The cannoli was decent. The only issue we had is that the eggplant parmesan that my husband ordered was sweet and had some cinnamon. I'm not sure if it was a mistake or if they make it like that all the time. It was just not what he was expecting.
