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.

We had the frutti del mare. It was excellent. We also had a bottle of wine. The first one didn’t taste right, so we chose a different bottle and that was good. The server went and tasted the first bottle and confirmed something was off about it. To sum up, great food and service, with great ambiance. The tiramisu is delicious.

I tried pasta with meat instead of seafood, which is my usual choice. Sauce was great. Had lunch on Saturday so crowded and a little noisy but enjoyed watching the crowd stream by. Servers were stretched thin but manager pitched in and helped. I am one of those who doesn't want to wait for a second glass of wine. an enjoyable way to spend a longer lunch.

I had steak, calamari , carbonara and bianco pizza.
Carbonara : 5 start out of 5.
Steak : 2 out of 5. I asked for medium rare, but I got well done. It was not juicy, dry and hard chew and swallow. Not recommend steak at this place
Fried Calamari : 0 out of 5. So dry, but dipping sauce was good.
Bianco pizza : 3 out of 5. it was okay.

I booked an outdoor table for 8 for my husband’s 40th birthday because that was the only type of table available to book on the open table app. When we arrived they said that the table we booked was not available after they had confirmed our table just two hours prior. They callously said it was our fault for booking an outdoor table (when we had no other choice) because they do not guarantee outdoor tables. This place had very disappointing customer service and were VERY rude. Even if their food was amazing (which it’s not) it would never excuse such behavior. A business should at least listen to their customers and not insult them as soon as they walk in if they desire repeat customers. Del Frisco’s bent over backwards to get us a last minute table for 8 (without a reservation)…their customer service was way beyond what was expected and it was so greatly appreciated. They really saved my husband’s birthday.

We ordered Prosecco and it was not cold so we sent it back for a cold bottle of Brut. We asked for the crab claw appetizer, but they were out of it so we ordered the shrimp appetizer special - delicious. The sea bass tasted fishy so we sent it back and ordered lasagna(a sure thing) which was really good. We were given a delicious chocolate lava cake for our duel birthdays. Service was top notch.
