Taverna Italian Kitchen
This is a limited intervention style of cooking, inspired by family tradition. We don't try and upstage our ingredients with elaborate techniques or clutter them up with fancy sauces. It's just simple respect for intensely flavoured San Marzano tomatoes, fresh garlic, warm basil, thick golden oil of first pressed olives and the conscious effort to bring locally grown, organic, and sustainable ingredients to your table when ever possible.
An excellent evening with a wonderful pizza and enough left over for breakfast the next day .
It was amazing! Did the family share meal with a group of 8. Highly recommend. Server was awesome.
have not been there for many years but so glad we went. We will definitely be back and would recommend to friends .
On our most recent visit, we had great service, great food and great company. We will be black!
Amazing as always
Never disappoints! A must on anyone's where to eat in Saskatoon. Food is always hot, fresh & delicious. Authentic Italian!
Homemade Gelato was a great way to end the meal.
Our dinner was good value for money as our meal also included bread and salad. My Vitelllo Limone was delicious. I asked to change the side pasta to fettuccini with alfredo sauce and they graciously complied. However, my husband's favourite dish, Pollo Marsala, was a little too oily/buttery this time , which caused his sauce to separate . Usually he loves this dish, but it wasn't up to its usual standard this visit, which is why we didn't rate our dinner 5 stars. We will return to Taverna, but next time will express our concerns prior to ordering so that he isn't disappointed again.
Great food and service. Amazing desserts. Very friendly owner.
Food was phenomenal as always!
The food was amazing which made up for the incredibly disappointing service. We were seated for almost 45 minutes before we were able to order our entrees- and that was after we flagged down someone so we could order. Our server was missing in action for most of the time we were in the restaurant. Thankfully the food, when it finally arrived, was delicious otherwise this would have been a disastrous dining experience
My friends and I enjoyed our supper! Really good food! Will definitely go back.
The food was good but not “waiting for 2 hours to get the food”, good.
Quantity was plentiful and it tasted pretty good
Our server was very helpful and offered great suggestions. We were seated at the table we
Had asked for.
Very nice evening’
Great food and great service. Thank you Taverna for continuing to be a worthy destination for our dining in Saskatoon.
We really do enjoy the food and the service.
My only complaint is the wine is very over priced.
I do not tip on the bottle of wine.
Great time and great service. Family style dining is the way to go. Our whole group loved all dishes we picked. We will be back!! Thank you for great evening.
As it was a beautiful day in Saskatoon we made a 7:00 pm reservation at Taverna through Open Table. Our request was confirmed. When we arrived we were told no outdoor tables were available and they had all booked prior to our reservation being made and confirmed. Had we known that we would have gone somewhere else that had an outdoor patio. Our sever had blue jeans on which we did not think was appropriate for the type of restaurant Taverna aspires to be. All other personnel were dressed professionally. Blue jeans are fine if you want to work at Montana’s!
It was an amazing experience! It was the best service we’ve ever had. Thank you to Tony and the other staff.
Food was ok. Presentation needs work. The arugala starter looked like it was made by a teen- arugala in a bowl with thick shavings of cheese, a small drizzle of balsamic reduction with an additional side bowl of dressing. The cannelloni was buried in sauce which overpowered the flavour of the stuffed cannelloni. Had an attentive server so service was great.
Service was excellent and the food as well, nice to see things are still very good.
We took our two kids (11 & 9) with us to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Tony, our waiter, was helpful with drink and food recommendations. The kids shared the Alfredo, while my husband and I enjoyed selections from the features menu. All in all it was a fantastic evening. We will definitely be back.
Always an excellent experience here and never disappointed by any part of my visit.
Our meal was outstanding and our server Kasen, was the best server we have ever had at Tavernas.
Our waiter Steve was outstanding, we had a problem reading the menu with the small print and low lighting. Steve recommended dishes by asking what we liked! Portions were great! Had left overs! Overall, I would get a seat by the window next time! Hopefully we can read the menu!
Great food and service!
Amazing Food! Amazing Atmosphere! Highly recommend Taverna for your next night out!
Food was amazing as usual. Our server was Victoria (I think that was her name!) She was super friendly and attentive but not overbearing. We enjoyed our supper!
Food was great; a little noisy at times. Service was excellent.
Expensive for what we ordered. Had more of a family restaurant vibe than we were hoping for for our date night. I don’t think we’ll be back for a while.
Always great food and great service. I visit every time I’m in Saskatoon.
No surprise its been in business 50 years. Fabulous food.
Haven't been there in a while so we decided to go for our anniversary. Forgot how good this place is. Our 8 year old says they have the best spaghetti in the world.
Food was delicious as always. Big portions.
Have your waiter create a meal for you based on your hunger level and interests off some menu ideas! They do amazing!
Maybe we just happen to dine on a bad night but our experience wasn’t good. The AC was not working which made dining very in comfortable and couldn’t wait to get out of there. Asked for table salt for the food and where told they only use high quality salt to prepare the food thus we could not have any to use at the table.
Based on the menu and prices they want to present themselves as a higher end Italian restaurant which they are not.
They should have stuck to there roots as a good family restaurant that is reasonably priced.
The food was delicious!!! The squash stuffed ravioli was so good! The one drawback was that it was extremely hot in the restaurant.
Our server was very friendly! We had a great experience!
Everyone loved their food. The only negative was that We found it quite hot sitting on the upper section in the back.
Great service and food!
