Italian
Taverna is a warm and inviting neighborhood restaurant that offers a truly Italian experience without having to leave Texas. Our Italian chefs strive to create the perfect menu using seasonal ingredients for their surprising entrees; every day we present a variety of northern Italian delights from simple comforts such as pan seared sea bass to delicate pasta and fabulous risotto.

Risotto is indeed our flagship dish. We only use Carnaroli rice – the “king of the rice”; thanks to its particular characteristics and firm texture the Carnaroli grain maintains its shape during the slow cooking required for a perfect and creamy risotto. Our broad offering includes truffle oil and Parmigiano risotto, bay scallops with home made pesto and an inspired Vin Santo risotto with asparagus and prosciutto.

A taverna in Italy is a special place where customers become friends and family. Here we celebrate the essence of hospitality and farm-to-table cooking reflecting our authentic Italian style.

I was greeted with a nice hello, the hostess help me with my change of reservation from 2 to 3, without a hesitation. Server was on point over our dinner and drink needs. Live this place! Food is delicious! A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. :-)
Definitely be back!

Cute restaurant, excellent service. Food was just ok - we got the cacio e pepe (fine, nothing special, not worth the cost), branzino (hard to eat in the pan that it arrives in, relatively bland, again not worth $35), and the scallop risotto (scallops were great! Risotto was ok, not super flavorful). Food was fine - not bad, but not good enough to come back for.

Taverna and Lombardi et all just never disappoints! Our shrimp appetizer was DELICIOUS (sub for the crab claws due to the crab shortage). Veal parm - yummy!!!

Always a great meal and great time!

It was my husband’s birthday. The waiter was very attentive, meal was outstanding, and drinks were great.
At the end of the meal they brought a delicious dessert with a lit candle and made the whole experience that much better. This place is one of my favorites because everything it’s always so good and the attention to detail makes you feel special when you come here.
Pastas are the die for, truly great.
Thank you!

Attended Sunday brunch. Nice ambience, not too noisy or overcrowded. Friendly service staff. Reasonably priced with decent menu options although limited vegetarian choices. Great location, plenty of parking and adjacent shopping. First time dinning and would likely return again for brunch or other dining options.

The service wasn’t great. The worst part was how bad the food was. We spent almost $200 for terrible food. My mussels were WAY to SPICEY. My husbands waffle dish was awful. The menu is wired for brunch. We’re never coming back.

Enjoyed an anniversary lunch at noon today. The beef carpaccio was nicely presented, with a good mustard aioli. The eggplant and veal parms were both good and weren't too small of a lunch entree. The penne that accompanied each had a spicier sauce than the entrees and we liked it.
Service is acceptable in this busy and rather noisy restaurant. We could see they were short on servers, but managers and greeters all did their part to get the food out hot. They never asked if this was a special occasion (maybe because it was lunchtime).
You must park in the nearby parking garage, which is pretty crowded at lunchtime.
It was good food, but the noise, crowded parking and close proximity of tables, won't make this my favorite.
