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.

Took my wife here for her birthday and it was an outstanding experience. Our waiter Jeremy was well knowledged on every item and gave us excellent service. We sat on the patio and it was very comfortable due to the heating stands they have stationed in a way that every table would feel the heat. The Oberon Cabernet wine and food was excellent.
This was our anniversary and our first time eating here. The food was wonderful and the service was even better! We will definitely be going back.
One of my very favorite places! It's my boyfriend and I's place!
The food and service is always exceptional. My wife and I usually dine here about once a month and on special occasions.
Last Saturday was my wife's birthday and as always, we bring in our birthday cake.
I was a little taken back that I was verbally told there would be a $15 cutting fee but nonetheless agreed.
Once there, I was charged $20. I did not dispute but not certain if I'll return for special occasions.
Food was very good, perfect portion sizes. Not overwhelming but just the right amount of creaminess.
Fish was terrible, remainder of food acceptable. Service barely passable. Nice location. Will not return
Great food and service
They are NOT practicing any kind of social distancing. The place is jammed packed as usual. Several of the staff had their masks hanging below their nose, and the manager never said a word (even though he interacted with them). Our server hovered too much for my taste. I felt rushed. Food wasn't as great as previous visits.
I went for a birthday celebration with friends. The atmosphere, especially the outdoor space, was great, and the food was divine! They also included a birthday dessert and candle, and sang happy birthday to our table.
Sole was overcooked ; however, we were not charged for the entree.
Even though Zeus forgot our appetizer, he was a good waiter.
Our server, Irina was AMAZING! She recommended a fabulous wine, helped create the perfect risotto dish too! IHifh
Took about 10 min to get my drink order, well really before a waiter came over at all. The manager ended up taking my drink order. The food was just okay. Disappointed because I used to love this place. Might stick to the Uptown location.
Great venue given all the entertainment going on around the restaurant. Can be a little noisy but ambiance wise was perfect.
Our waiter hovered too much and was a little pushy. He was nice but constantly interrupted our conversation etc.
Taverna is one of my favorite restaurants and we love to sit on the outside patio. However, this time one of the managers kept going out to smoke very close to the entrance of the restaurant. This manager is always there...short, dark hair, usually wearing jeans a a sport coat and flirting with all the women. The smell of cigarettes sadly ruined our meal.
Celebrated our 25th anniversary literally couldn’t of been better ! Perfect dining experience ! Service ambience quality of food and value all exceptional.
We love Taverna and are regulars. Ask for Irena, she is great.
The food was great. I got a risotto dish and my friend got linguini. Our server seemed a bit..... inconvenienced by us. I’ve been a server before and I get it; things can get busy. But it just wasn’t the greatest service ever. Wine seemed a bit over priced for a basic Tempranillo. I’d give this place another shot. Just wasn’t amazing.
Taverna food was amazing - and the service exemplary. A fantastic part of the whole Legacy West experience. Will definitely be back!
Service and drinks were great but food was heavy. My 2 yr old daughter had the cheese pizza and loved it. My wife and I had muscles, lasagna and pesto gnocchi. My wife and my meals tasted ok but did not wow us. Overall, the experience was average compared to other Italian restaurants. I wouldn’t avoid it in the future, but it would not be my first choice.
Excellent, authentic food! Celebrating my friends birthday and our server surprised her at the end with a lovely dessert after an excellent meal. I can't wait to return. The Lombardi's know how to cook!
A surprisingly delicious meal with wonderful service. The risotto was cooked perfectly and shockigly good!
Great people-watching restaurant. Service by Jonathan is always spot on!
It was good overall
The food here was incredible!! It was my birthday and they gave me a free dessert and sang happy birthday to me which was the nicest surprise.
Food is delicious and service is great. The portions are a bit small.
excellent service and food was fantastic as usual!
We enjoyed getting to sit on the patio and people watching their prime location.
This was our first time and the service and food were amazing! We will definitely be coming again.
I had a 6:30 reservation. When I arrived the hostess would not seat me until the whole party was there. First time I have encountered that at Taverna. However, five minutes later when my husband arrived she seated us even though the whole party still wasn’t there. Talk about discrimination! In addition we asked for outside but she proceeded to take us to the table right by the kitchen - but when my husband asked for outside she took us outside.
In addition she was completely inappropriately dressed. I don’t my short dresses or even a bit revealing are cute. However, her way too short coulotte dress was pulled up in her back side crack and her front side as well. It was just gross and really not appealing.
Between her rudeness to me and her attitude and dress - we will not be returning. Too bad as my husband is an acquainted with the owner and was going to request a new restaurant be built in a new multi-use development. Such stupid mistakes can be very costly.
The food as usual was excellent! The service was also great and Gianni actually stopped by to say hello, as my daughter worked for him years ago and we caught up.
Fabulous service both at the bar and our table. My husband enjoyed a filet and my Dover sole was delicious! The bottle of Chianti was the perfect addition to a wonderful patio dining experience.
Love! Best service I’ve had in a long long time!!! Worth every penny.
Always enjoy the total experience when we dine there.
We celebrated our daughter’s birthday here and the service was outstanding and the food was spectacular! We’ll definitely be back!
OK place to eat as a single. Bar drinks leave a lot to be desired. Place lacks an experienced bar tender who knows how to make, mix and present alcoholic drinks. Too noisy to carry on a comfortable conversation with another regardless of the quality of the food or service.
had a great time and Jeremy took great care of us. enjoyed the seating outside with the beautiful weather. Food was delicious and cocktails were not too much or too little. Spacing was great as we should expect these days. Highly recommend for friends and family gatherings as well as casual dining out.
Perfect location to eat and people watch with friends!
It was okay, but I don't plan to come back.
Great restaurant. They focus on quality and service. One of my favorites! Nice gluten free pasta options, accommodating of dietary restrictions and friendly wait staff.
