Established in 1967, Taberna Etrusca is an Italian restaurant in the classic trattoria style, with textured walls, tiled floor, open-beamed ceiling and an overall timeless quality. A pretty courtyard catches the sun during the Summer with tables highly sought after. The entire restaurant can be hired evenings and weekends and being so perfectly situated next to Bow Bells Churchyard, wedding receptions are naturally popular here throughout the year.

    An old fave and still good. Lovely staff and excellent food. Sadly pretty empty on a Tues night (admittedly just after the bank hol) so hopefully it can keep going. Well worth a visit.

    Having dined here many years ago, it's not lost any of its charm. If you are looking for an old school Italian restaurant in the city, with dishes cooked to order, served hot and with a smile, then this is the place for you. Portions are plentiful (I didn't have the veal chop but saw it on another diners plate and it was HUGE) and they serve pasta as either Primi or a main course (for an additional charge). We ordered far too much food and our server (Ricardo) was happy to cancel the additional course ahead of arrival with no fuss or bother. Highly recommend the vongole.

    Lovely traditional Italian restaurant tucked away near St Paul’s. Large menu and good wine selection . I ordered the crab spaghetti but most of the table followed and I didn’t really find any crab so maybe they shared it between us all but flavour was still good.

    Really excellent - delicious food, and a very wide range of options. Service was exemplary. Lovely to be able to sit outside. Wine fairly expensive (mostly £30+ and good ones £44) but worth it.

    The sharing platter of a trio of pasta was excellent. The different flavours and textures of the three dishes was so good we considered forgetting the main courses and having the same again! However the Spaghetti Vongole main didn't disappoint.

    It's been a while since I last visited. The place is still a treat to visit. An interesting, varied menu, with lots to please people you enjoy regional Italian food. Good sized portions - this is almost a neighbourhood restaurant, which is one of the reasons I enjoy it. We went for the recommended red wine - the house wine (not the cheapest). It went down well - robust, fruity but still with a bit of bite, and tasty once it opened up a bit. We ate a mix of arancini, seafood stew, pasta and chops. The plates were cleaned. We didn't quite manage to finish the tiramisu, but not for want of trying. Our only regret was that we could not linger longer as some of the other tables were doing - it seemed very italian and brilliantly civilised.

    Great ambience and friendly staff. However, I was a little disappointed by the lack of vegetarian options. Parmesan is rarely vegetarian, so I was scared to try any mains as Parmesan was a main player for all. That being said, I had two starters and dessert and all were delicious.

    It has been a long time since i had eaten at the Taberna Etrusca but the food was as good as i recalled it being. A lovely first course of pasta in a veal sauce followed by a lamb shank with creamed potato and vegetables. The starter and main were beautifully cooked and the service was exemplary. Had a couple of bottle of Grecanico, which was very nice and reasonably priced. Will be going back the next time i meet up with friends in the City
