A word from Taverna 750
Taverna 750 is the best of old school Italian with a contemporary flair. Paul D. Cannella's was inspired by Grandfather Paul J. Loverde's and Uncle Chuckie Abruzzini's classic Italian recipes from their restaurant on Grand Avenue from the 40's to the 60's. All of the entrees will be small plates, meant for sharing at the table. Most are less than $10 and the martinis include a sidecar. Bottom line is that Taverna is an extremely great value.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The food was excellent. Our server was slightly aloof and seemed to forget about us at times. Also, we sat outside and the umbrellas were lifted by the wind and totally cleared a couple of tables shattering glass everywhere. That said, we did get a couple of complimentary shots to make up for the terror. This was not my first time here, and will not be my last. Even with a few speed bumps, the food and ambiance were great."

  • "Enjoyed the whole experience. Food, drinks, service. Dined outside as it was a pleasant evening and the "buzz" inside was not our thing. Trout fillet wrapped in pancetta, risotto meatballs in marinara, crispy brussel sprouts (on the salty side), artichoke pizza all well prepared. Portions generous and definitely adequate as "shared plates". Overall a great value. Kudos to the chef as well as our server, Dan,"

  • "The service was excellent. Every waiter that came to our table was very friendly. Food was great. Drink list was excellent, every drink comes with a sidecar! Will definitely go back again!"

  • "Very dissapointed by our server on Friday 9/Apr/14. Food and drinks delicious as usual, we are regulars at Taverna and were surprised by the poor service- first time ever! Drinks took 20+ min and the waiter challanged me saying that I would not get them faster if I went to the bar myself... I went directly to the bar and ordered my martinis and walked to the table with them taking not even 5-7 min. I never expected a server to challenge a client. Taverna management please better train your new staff, you have an awesome place with great food and drinks and I think you do not want to drive your clients away because of their service experience."

  • "I've been to 750 many times but tonight was not the best. They had a table right away for our reservation, but it was so deafeningly loud inside, we decided to wait for an outside table. You really shouldn't have to yell to have a dinner conversation. The food is always excellent here, and tonight was no exception, the brussels sprouts were especially great. Food delivery was quick, but the bar was so backed up our second round of drinks never appeared. Prices are very fair. My main gripe with this place is that they hire waiters that all fit a visual formula, 5'9" and emaciated looking, rather than going for service and social skills. To be fair, there are some fine waiters there, but also some with less than great skills/attitude."

  • "Our group had a great time out at Taverna 750. The margaritas were $12, but came with a sidecar so it was like getting two drinks--very reasonable! The presentation and unique choices for the drinks also made it a very special experience. I didn't expect the "burnt orange" part of my drink to be lit at the table--a fun surprise! The dishes are made for sharing, and everyone got to choose at least one dish to be passed around, so you get to try many different plates. Everyone loved the macaroni and cheese so much we had to order two! The table was split on the pork chop dish, saying it was slightly salty, but everything else was absolutely fantastic. Our server was fun and energetic, and had recommendations ready. Would definitely go again!"

  • "Each we've visited Taverna 750 has been a totally fun experience -- from special occasions (birthdays, Mother's Day), to friendly get-togethers, to just brunch, Taverna 750 never disappoints! Great atmosphere, very good food, marvelous mimosas, and excellent Martinis! Love it!"

  • "We went for valentine's day on a whim (AKA waited until the last second to get reservations and got lucky with someone else cancelling). I am sure happy that we did, the service was great, very friendly wait staff, and the drinks were fantastic. The smokey paloma is a wonder just to watch them create, and tastes as good as it looks. The food was hit or miss, the roasted cauliflower garganelli was amazing, the pear and pancetta pizza was just ok, as was the surf and turf. The steak could have used a hit of kosher salt and black pepper. I would definitely recommend it, and will be back to try more of their regular dishes and have another paloma."

  • "The whole room has a great buzz and it's like walking into a fun party. That said, this would have been a more dazzling experience if it was 2005. Maritins form the bulk of the drink menu, and the food is tapas style. Our affable waiter, well-intentioned, informed us that 'tapas' means small plates meant for sharing and advised us how many dishes would be ideal for the table (he must have spotted my turnip truck parked outside). We were told that the bar could of course make any cocktail not on the menu- except for the Moscow Mule that my partner requested... so not any cocktail after all. However, all of that was forgivable- the cocktails and dishes were in fact very tasty and the whole experience overall was stylish and fun."

  • "I love this restaurant. The staff is great. The food is always amazing. The drinks are on point. Perfect for a simple night for two, great for groups. It's a louder environment for sure, so prepare to speak loudly. Brunch is less loud than dinner, and it's worth every penny."

  • "If you're looking for a great place with an energetic vibe, delicious food and superbly crafted cocktails, then this place is a MUST!!! Our server Danny was beyond amazing! He was super knowledgable and made some great recommendations! You're in for a real treat if you luck up and have him for a server. I can't wait to go back!"

  • "My partner and I are still in love with Taverna. We always bring our friends in to enjoy great martinis and food. Many of our foreign friends also fall in love with the restaurant. Key is not only the food and drinks, but the service- we have yet to be disappointed with the service and we've been regulars at Taverna since 2011. If you have not experienced Taverna - try them... most likely Taverna will end in your list of favorite restaurants!"

  • "I've been to Taverna 750 several times, and have always ordered something different with continued success. This past time I went with a vegan, and they were very accommodating and helped us make the best choices. They made my birthday extra special. Thanks Taverna, I look forward to many visits in the future!"

  • "Taverna has fabulous cocktails, delicious small plates, and a fun feel. Great for a date, even better for a night out with friends. All small plates I've had have been great - highlights include Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Mussels and Clams. Dessert isn't their strongest dish. I go back frequently."

  • "Food was good but not quite as good as all previous visits. The calamari was a bit greasy and the scallops were only fair and too small for the price. The Chicken Marsala was changed from the 3 individual chicken breasts to slices of chicken breast and was not as large a portion or quite as good. Usually the value here is superlative as the prices are moderate, portions are nice size, and food quality is excellent. A little bit off Saturday night. Will try again and hope it is back to it's usual excellence."

  • "We enjoy this restaurant but the three times we've been there, we have always had a problem at the door. Each time, we have had reservations and every time, we are seated at least 30 minutes later than reserved. The door staff seems unconcerned. This last time was particularly annoying as there were many open tables, just not "our" table. I don't need "my" table, just a table. Food & service are great but the door is a wreck. Especially considering that once before, after an hour and fifteen minute meal that had literally just ended, we were abruptly given the check and asked to leave the table because it was needed. PS that time we were seated 1 hour later than our reserved time. Whose fault was it that our table was needed? Not mine. :-("

  • "This is my go to place when having dinner after work with a friend. Everyone that works there is super friendly and service is spot on. Food is consistent, great signature drinks and nice ambiance. The tables are very close together, which would be my only complaint. The restaurant is not huge so they need to maximize the space for seating. Everything else makes up for it and I will definitely keep coming back. You must try the Mozzarella Alla Phyllo appetizer."
