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’ve been to Italy several times, leading photography workshops. Whenever we’re missing Italy, this is where we come! Taverna is our FAVORITE spot for a date night! Their Spritz’s remind me of being in Venice. They’re pasta is amazing! Their mussels, all of it. Even the layout and booth/seating makes us think of Italy. And i have a hearing issue so Johnny, the manager from Italy, always takes care of us with the perfect spot to sit.
Thank you Taverna for all the joy and delight you give us!

Three of us visit Plano three or four times a year for two or three nights each time. We always dine at this location at least once, but there have been times we have been there both nights. We love the food, the service and the wine!! It is a little pricey but I believe that is because of where it is located. Look forward to our next visit in a couple of months.

Mike was our waiter. He was personable and energetic. He had great knowledge of the menu and was very helpful in picking out items on the price fixed lunch menu for me. BTW, the tuna ravioli was outstanding. Love coming here.

Descent service but waiter was overwhelmed. Bread “sticks” provided prior to main course were stale and oily. Pesto for dipping bread was awful. Rocket salad was fresh and tasty. Seafood pasta with “Lobster”. What lobster? It was just a piece along with nice lobster shell. Cannoli for dessert had little to no ricotta. Tasted awful. Shameful to call that cannoli.

Took a star off just because of where we were seated just behind the hostess an afterthought table on a Saturday night kind of like sitting by the restroom. This table is in the way for everything.

Everything was great from start to finish. Our waiter, Michael was attentive and enthusiastic. The burrata appetizer was delicious and perfectly seasoned. Highly recommend. The fettuccine bolognese was a great pasta choice. The margherita pizza was crispy and perfectly cooked. The halibut special was very good. There was even a kids menu. The chicken tenders and fries were fresh and delicious! I even snacked on them. Truly enjoyed. We will be back:)

Wonderful night celebrating our Anniversary! They went above and beyond to make our night special for us know we were celebrating our 10 year Anniversary. They brought an appetizer to us while at the bar waiting for our table, bubbly when we sat down and special dessert after dinner. We have always enjoyed coming here but now are even bigger fans of this restaurant.

Wasn’t really that great; won’t go back. It was a busy night, but no attention for guest w reservations. The wait staff was not prepared for the rush. We waited while our food got cold for eating utensils. Salad never came, had to ask them to remove from the bill. Disappointing. The lasagna was the best ever... was ordered after another entree was returned . Order that to GO!

When arrived we were stuck at a table on the patio with no heat. The next couple at a table were 3 inches from us. The music was rap music. Hardly Valentine experience. I made me reservation through Open Table and they never found it. We sat there for 10 minutes and never got a server. When she finally came we ordered wine and she just brought glasses, no wine! We had to ask another server for our wine. Food was not bad, but with everything else they did wrong made it taste horrible. It really is nothing more than a glorified Chili’s.
