Found on the internet. WasFound on the internet. Was a real gem with a romantic setting. Date was impressed. Great wine list.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTaverna has potentialOh How I want Taverna to be better. Taverna has everything a restaurant needs to be the shining star. San Marco location, appealing ambience and decor, a professionally trained chef, excellent wait staff- but something is missing. The menu is predictably the same, the portions are skimpy for the price. This is not NY or San Francisco, etc. The pizza is good.

I love that they change up their menu and add new fresh in-season ingredients. Everybody there is so friendly and so knowledgeable. In my top 3 favorite restaurants in Jacksonville.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrived early to take advantageWe arrived early to take advantage of happy hour, but it took quite a while for our drink order to be taken so we were only able to get one drink each before happy hour ended. The basil prosecco cocktail I ordered was unique. I'm glad I tried it. They had some good wine bargains and only local craft beer on draft which I appreciated. The parmesan truffle fries were excellent! The fries themselves were perfectly crisp with just the right amount of topping. I ordered the small portion scallops with risotto and it was superb. My table mate ordered the rabbit quarter special with gnocci. The rabbit was poorly butchered with many bone shards, but the taste was great. The warm chocolate cake and chocolate pave were ok, not worth the 30 min wait.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFodd and service never disappoints!Fodd and service never disappoints!
