Took my wife here for her birthday and it was a great experience. The food was very good and the service was top notch. Can’t wait to go again
Great atmosphere! they open their doors, so it doesn't matter if you get seated inside or outside.
It’s was my 2nd time visiting this restaurant. We were highly disappointed in our waitress. She was beyond disinterested in our table of 5. We were sad because we were celebrating a 23rd birthday. I will return to the restaurant but make sure I don’t get the grumpy waitress again.
Absolutely Amazing Food & Excellent Service... Taverna Is A Sure Win On My List of Choice Restaurants.... The Lombardi Family Has Done It Again! 5 Star
Was very impressed with Taverna! We changed our reservation last minute to accommodate 4 people instead of the original 2. The food and drinks were excellent and the service was polite and attentive. Will return!
Overall a good experience. Music was a little too loud.
The foccicia was dry and boring even with the prosciutto. Drinks were exceptional..blueberry mule was my favorite. The pasta was good especially the Bolognese. Tiramisu was ok but the cheesecake was very good. I would recommend for happy hour for sure.
The ambiance was great, the staff were great. My friends’ chicken was not cooked but the manager responded well and agreed that it was not cooked and comped his meal. Otherwise it was a goos experience.
Always a solid spot!
Had a wonderful meal and service was excellent. We both had pasta and enjoyed every bite. This was our first time at Taverna and we will definitely be back.
delicious food,great ambience and service was good
Parents of fiancé’s meeting for the first time
Service was a little spotty. only 2 servers and 4-5 tables in the patio. other than that, it was a good experience.
Pizza was fair at best. Pasta was good but expensive. Very Buckhead experience---price by location not quality. Had an intro offer which made it less painful, but a pizza,pasta and 2 glass of wine meal (with a shared house salad) is steep at $70. Maybe acceptable if it was really great, but it was just okay. Maybe I spend too much time in NY-NJ where really good basic Italian is easy to find.
Always enjoy our experience at Taverna. Great food in a fun atmosphere.
Great vibe both inside and outside dining. Excellent service from staff, stellar drinks, and outstanding food. With all the Italian in Atlanta all over the city, this is in my top 5 and I keep coming back. The squid ink spaghetti with crab meat is to die for. And the restaurant doesn't overdo it with portions. Everything is just the right portion size. Pizzas, apps, and salads are also all great.
I brought my 7 year old son for dinner. We were in Atlanta for a short getaway, and he loves Italian food. Our server was polite, but she never refilled our drinks, and I noticed a few tables that were seated after us getting service before we did. And the food, for the price, was just okay.
There was only one server and a bartender- services were slow and we had to waive our waitress down twice - no manager came by - sad experience for such good food
Once again amazing pasta and a great dining experience for our group from the office celebrating a birthday.
Bad service. Bad food. Good luck. Not the first time either.
The food and experience was great! Our waiter Paige was awesome and full of personality!
Freezing inside the restaurant. Tables are too close together. Service was good and food was ok. Overall overpriced but still a fun place. Better for drinks/apps.
Great restaurant! Love the outside seating.
Food was very mediocre. Featured Focaccia was a bland piece of dry bread with some cold Parma ham thrown on top. No olive oil anywhere to be found. Risotto was not property prepared (lumpy) and very over salted. Second tier ingredients -- not top draw items.
Now the service.
It took our waiter and bartender over 15 minutes to tell us that the wine we ordered (off the menu) was not in stock. Then it took almost as long to bring our second choice wine and we were half way through with our entrees by then. Waiter spent more time at the end of the bar than in their service area -- had to wait to have empty water glasses refilled.
And, finally, to top it all off, they could not take our credit card because their system was down.
Don't waste your time or money.
Amazing food and great service! The tiramisu was too die for, so light and delicious!!
Food was very good. Our server was not great. Didn't offer us water and when I ordered it I had to do it twice. My husband was between 2 dishes and discussed it with the waiter. They settled on one but when the food was brought he was brought the other. He decided to keep it since it was his second choice and it was good. We did however feel that the waiter was not paying us much attention
Bruschetta was awesome
The tomato bisque was by far the best I have ever had and would go back simply for that.
The cappelletti in bolognese was on par with the tomato bisque in being one of the best meals I've had in a long time.
My only complaints are the louder-than-necessary dance music playing and the marinara sauce on my wife's spaghetti side was very tart, almost acidic due to an over abundance of tomatoes and lack of other seasonings. Regardless, I am definitely coming back
Nelson is a great host and manager! Taverna never disappoints!
Ambiance is very nice. Too loud and hard to hear conversations. One of the hostesses was very rude and wait staff is slow to get food to table.
Great place for business lunch.
Everything was great
The highlight of our visit were the $2 mimosas. The food was underwhelming and came out lukewarm. I'd probably only be back for the mimosas. I'd completely pass on the food.
On a busy Saturday night, we waited for a table 15 minutes past our reservation time and ended up with the worst table in the house. They accommodated our request to move and we waited another 15 minutes. We had poor and slow service at the table, asked another server to take our order in which one item was wrong. While food was OK, they brought the check before offering us dessert.
First time there, no expectations. Great surprise. Terrific food and service. Packed and very loud. Can't wait to try again.
Disappointed somewhat this time. We had a reservation and they wanted to seat us in the bar area, which neither my husband nor I wanted. Had to wait an additional 10 min. foer another table.
Waitress was a bit slow but the restaurant was quite busy.
Food was good as always. Just a bit disappointed at the beginning of the evening.
The food was amazing. I’m Italian and picky about my pasta...this place was delicious and the manager was great! Highly recommend.
We had a great dinner. The food and ambiance is perfect for that Friday night Italian dinner.
Waiter wasn’t very informed about the menu
I will for very casual, quick bite. No ambience, Clorox smell while dining, don’t expect to get your expensive bottle of wine pour in your glass every time is empty. Menu is very limited. Not what we were expecting.
