TAVERNA is nestled in Saskatoon's historic downtown core within walking distance of a number of major hotels in the renowned entertainment district. The building was originally a grocery store dating back to 1907. Taverna still maintains a historical charm and character, serving fantastic rustic Italian dishes since 1969.

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.

Our server and food was excellent but there was a large group - seemed to be a hockey team with smaller children less than 9 years old id guess and they were very loud. The children were less than well behaved and I know this isn’t the fault of the restaurant I was just surprised that it would attract a group like this. When I think of Taverna I think of upscale Italian dining with wine and adult conversation. The ambiance last night was more like an Olive Garden or Old Spaghetti Factory. Made for a disappointing experience in our overall evening. Conversation was tough over the noise.

Wait staff was prompt despite being busy. Food was delicious, but got a bit rich after a bit. Lighting is a touch dim which made reading the menu a bit difficult. However overall it was a great visit and will return.

Versailles took great care of us and helped us get exactly what we wanted even though it wasn’t on the menu. Can’t wait to go back. Try the warmed Olives for an appetizer, you won’t be disappointed!!

Waitresses should introduce themselves and ttake a minute to get a feeling for their customers. Our waitress was good. At the end of our meal while paying she was very chatty which is wonderful. A bit pricey for what you get. But overall a good experience. Will try other restaurants before returning.

Layers of noodles, very little meat sauce and cheese. I had this lasagna years ago and it was a lot better than the food I had last night. Would not recommend the lasagna for $26 dollars. My husband had some kind of angel hair pasta dish and really liked it. Love the bruschetta. C’est la vie

Fabulous! The beer was cold, the service was good. We were there on St.Patrick's Day, and my wife had the calamari special. She took one bite and ate no more. Calamari isn't supposed to smell like rotting fish. It smelled so bad I almost couldn't eat my own dish. But the hostess took it off the bill, no problem. And sent us home with a complimentary bowl of soup, which is delicious. Will return and give them another chance.
