Each of us tried a different cocktail and all were pleased! Our consensus was that that the Blood and Sand was the best! We shared 5 dishes among us and left feelign perfectly full but not stuffed. The bruschetta was delicious - the pesto smear on excellent crusty bread was a nice addition. Each dish was more mouthwatering than the next. Our two favorites were the Cauliflower with Garganelli and the Pork Shoulder over Polenta. The pork shoulder tasted like a refined potroast and was enjoyed by all.
We were seated as soon as we arrived and received excellent service from our server, who was very knowledgeable and friendly. We can't wait to come back!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMTaverna 750, Neighborhood Treat!Interesting menu items. Pork and polenta a must have!
Parking is difficult, best to walk or cab. Nice sidewalk cafe.
Wait staff attentive and friendly.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBrilliant!Modern Italian food mixed with house made Lemoncello - brilliant!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways goodThis was our third time here as we only get to Chicago 2 times per year. But each time it has been excellent. The food is great and well presented. The serving staff is friendly and makes you feel welcomed.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, great serviceI took friends there who were visiting from out of town, and we had a great time. The food was fantastic and the service was great. I particular recommend the Mac and cheese and Brussels sprouts.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite spot !Love this place ! I bring friends and out of town guests there all the time .... Love the shared plates as I do not have a huge appetite but can sample all of my favorites .. Keep up the good work guys ! Out of town for a week but you shall see me upon my return !5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMNice service, food is so-soMy dining companion and I went to Taverna 750 to celebrate our birthdays. My expectations were high based on all of the good reviews. Unfortunately we left unimpressed.
Our server, Cory, was pleasant and made several menu recommendations, some of which we tried.
We ordered the Burrata and Stonefruit salad, Chicken Bacon Ranch Orecchiette, Pear and Pancetta pizza and the roasted Brussel Sprouts side. Out of all of these, the only item that we really loved was the pizza. The other 3 dishes were just OK. Not bad, but certainly not outstanding either considering the price point. Bland overall.
Cory did offer us free desserts for our birthdays which were totally unexpected and a really nice surprise. The desserts were excellent.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Place!This restaurant and experience was truly wonderful! I loved every minute of the dining experience, and the cocktails were incredible! I will definitely come back again!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMost Creative Cocktail menu EVER!There are so many different choices of these rare and unusual types of combinations-- like the Amalfi-- a ginger infused martini that is incredible!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!We had a group of 12, and we ordered nearly everything on the menu. The food was excellent, and there was not one person who didn't find something that they just loved. The service was outstanding.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat brunch dealIf you're looking for a fun, boozy brunch, this place is perfect. I was really impressed with the great brunch special that includes 2 courses, mimosas and martinis. The drinks were strong and delicious and the food was delicious and beautifully presented. Service was friendly and awesome although a bit slow (which was perfect because we wanted to relax and enjoy, but I might not go here if I was in a rush). I would definitely recommend it for brunch! I haven't yet tried it for dinner but I hope to.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Brunch with the parentsI took my parents to Taverna 750 for Brunch on Saturday and it was great. The patio was open and we had some of the best service from Shane. I heavily suggest people go here and enjoy this great place.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Taste of Gay ChicagoLocals told me it was the best of Boys Town and they were right. Exceptionally friendly service, delicious food.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday Night OutI should preface by saying this is in my top three favorite restaurants in the city, but the first time I came for a special occasion that I wanted to go perfectly! I brought several friends for my birthday on a busy weekend night, and we were not disappointed. The drinks were strong, the food amazing as always, and since there were two birthdays at the table, our waitress brought out dessert shots for the entire table on the house. While service was a bit slow to kick off--some at our table waited quite some time to put in drink and food orders--everything else came out on time following that, and I appreciated that the waitstaff was not bothered by our whole party not having arrived on time for the reservation.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat findI've heard about this place from a few friends and finally tried it. The cocktails with sidecars were fabulous. The service was awesome. We were catching up with a friend and never felt intruded or rushed through dinner. The orchiette (sp) was delicious and we ordered two. The Sweet Potato Bread Pudding was a knockout- not too sweet and very flavorful.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHoly Brunch Batman!OK, talk about one heck of a deal! For $25 you get two courses, two martinis, AND bottomless Mimosas?! I took my mom here for Mothers Day and we had a blast. Everyone is super friendly, the drinks are great and it was just a fun time. I haven't been for dinner, but I will definitely be back for brunch without a doubt.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the patioWhat a great place to relax and share food with friends. Dont oveook the brussel sprouts!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAgain... Great Job.Once again Taverna 750 has exceeded my expectations. The staff always is friendly and the food is impeccable.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMhip placeGood food, reasonably priced, and a good vibe make this a cool place to be. All the food is worth a try and the wait staff is hip to be square!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden TreasureTaverna 750 is that rare combination of a
neighborhood spot where everything was
spot on. I can't remember the last time I had
a server who was that friendly, knowledgeable
about the entire menu(including the amazing
variety of cocktails), and just plain nice. All of
the items we tried were excellent & a bit unusual-
can't wait to go back and try more. The shared
plates were a great way to dine and everything was
a good value.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch extravaganzaTook 15 minutes to seat us past our reservation - but we got complimentary mimosas while we waited4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMTaverna750 is my favoriteTaverna750 is my favorite neighborhood restaurant. Friends from out of town really enjoyed it.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat late light dinnerWe returned to Taverna 750 for post-theatre light meal. The special chicken wing picatta was a great concept and delicious execution! The BBQ chicken flatbread was a bit too cheesy. The Tuna Confit was quite good and beautifully plated. Our server was great as usual. The tequila cocktail was generous and tasty. The by-the-glass wine selection was overpriced for the quality of the claret. Overall, it's a great place in the 'hood - highly recommended! PS - Too bad the owners are stingy and don't give Open Table points on Friday night reservations.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant was fantastic.This restaurant was fantastic. I made a reservation for my boyfriend's birthday and they were more than helpful making sure everything went perfectly. I was able to give them a cake to hide and then bring it out at the end of the meal to surprise my guy. They were more than happy to take it. Absolutely no problems. The staff was very nice and recommending what food they thought was perfect for that evening's dinner.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this place! It's aI love this place! It's a great gem in the neighborhood. Great ambiance and service not to mention excellent food that changes to match the seasons - this is a great go to spot for romantic nights or special occasions.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMmilagros - producerTaverna 750 is great, they just changed their menu and I'm missing some of their old goddies.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat martinis and love theGreat martinis and love the sidecar they come with. Food was good but the staff was just slow and seemed confused.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly, non-obtrusive servers,Friendly, non-obtrusive servers, variety of small plate options, great wine specials and great ambiance.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is quite a nice littleThis is quite a nice little place. The food we had was pretty good-- beef short ribs with a lovely polenta and an onion gravy, and a pear and pancetta mini pizza, both of which were garnished with arugula for a nice, fresh touch. But what really stood out were the cocktails-- I had the Sibling Rivalry, which was truly excellent, and had a tequila base, which is kind of uncommon for artful cocktails. My fiance had the '50s Fashion, a take on an old fashioned, which he enjoyed. And with every cocktail, you get a sidecar that basically amounts to a second serving-- not a bad deal. We finished up with the brown butter cake, which was similar to a refined strawberry shortcake.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat birthday celebrationWe went to celebrate my husband's birthday and had a fabulous evening. The staff was super friendly - everyone wished him a happy birthday - and helpful. Our waiter, Chris, made great drink and food recommendations. We had the pesto/goat cheese bruschetta, tuscan mac & cheese, mushroom risotto and scallops. The only one that wasn't totally amazing was the scallops, and since Chris had suggested that one he comped dessert for us when we said we didn't really love it. I'm so glad we live in the neighborhood - we will definitely be back soon!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI highly recommend this place!I highly recommend this place! The food and the service were incredible. Really enjoyed the "small plates" style of eating. It was great to sample so many great dishes.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Taverna 750. They haveLove Taverna 750.

Will be back!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, lots of heart!This was our second time at Taverna 750 and we were as happy with our experience this time as the first. The service is a stand out and the food is great. If I really wanted to nit pick, I would want the plates to be smaller-not the portions, the plates themselves! We wanted to have ask our shared plates on the table at the same time but the plates were so big, things got cramped. Nonetheless, we love having Taverna in the neighborhood.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique Brunch ExperienceA group of 8 of us went there for brunch on Sunday. This is a relatively small place so be patient waiting for a table even if you have a reservation. The good news is, they keep you filled with mimosas. The food was simply spectacular. Every morsel of food that came to our table was exceptional. The cocktails and martinis were equally as impressive and creative.
Service was a bit spotty but friendly. On a busy Sunday morning we had to wait a while for our reservation but they were gracious about the wait. Frankly, the outstanding food made up for any small lapses in service.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI absolutely love this restaurant.I absolutely love this restaurant. The small plates are perfect for sharing, the staff are attentive and brilliant at making recommendations, and the ambiance somehow manages to be urban and unpretentious at the same time. Oh, and I should mention the martinis because they are fabulous! It's a great place for friends and couples -- highly recommended!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the roasted califlowerWe had the roasted califlower pasta dish, the papardalle with lamb sausage, and the pizza with pear and pancetta on it. Everything was delicious but my favorite was the roasted cauliflower pasta. It was so flavorful, and not too heavy. The pizza was also great! A sweet and savory combination.
For drinks, I had the Pera and the Papal States. Pera was definitely my favorite. It was refreshing, not sweet.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff were all incredibleThe staff were all incredible and their recommendations were SPOT ON!
I was thrilled to have tried this restaurant and will definitely be telling friends to visit them as I will to on my next trip into Chicago.2/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and interestingGreat food and interesting drinks. I come here every few months and have a good time every night. Only down side is the servers/host can be a little smug and you can never get in without a reservation.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
