Food was good. Place is small. Servers had to run around quite a bit!

Amazing authentic Italian food in a cozy exposed red-brick setting. The food is always impeccable and the service is great. We dine here every few weeks and have never been disappointed with anything. The price is also very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food you receive.

Been here many times. Almost the perfect neighbourhood Italian restaurant with such good food and attentive staff. Not a “fancy “place, but as good pizza and pasta as good will find anywhere.

We so enjoyed the food, service and overall experience at Taverniti. The food was fabulous and I can't wait to go back to try the other items on the menu. I am Italian and this place is the kind of feel good we all need. Our server was a ROCKSTAR as well. I have told many friends and of course the rest of my family.

This is our favourite Italian restaurant. Sitting there makes you feel like you’re in Europe again. Our pizzas were delicious and we loved our desserts and cappacino’s too! It’s such a romantic ambiance and the perfect place for a date :)

The gnocchi are pillow soft, the other dishes I enjoy are excellent. A very unique feel, small, cozy, friendly staff, and Rosina has popped out the kitchen on some visits to ask guests how their food is.

Honestly this restaurant has the best Italian food served in a warm, rustic atmosphere. It's cozy and inviting and not very expensive. My table had allergies that the servers were very quick to check with the kitchen, ensuring there would be no issues with what we were ordering. I hope to go back soon, either for a casual dinner or a special occasion.

I wish I spoke Italian. 😀
The weight staff and some of the customers were speaking their beautiful language. The atmosphere, excellent pasta, and great bottle of wine made for an authentic, delicious experience. Grazie.

The restaurant is very small,maximum 30 seats. It's imperative to make reservations . On a Monday night,they had to turn people away. The carbonara was very good. Highly recommend it

A delightful neighborhood Italian eatery. Only issue is that the 'on line' menu does not match the actual menu in the restaurant!

Great home cooking with friendly staff. I'd recommend this quaint Trattoria to anyone who wants delicious Italian fare. It's small and lively in relatively tight quarters - just like many restos in Italy "where the locals eat" !!

The food was fresh, authentic and perfectly seasoned. Felt like a home cooked meal. Hands down the best Italian food I have had in the city. The service was a little slow as it was a weekday and there was only 2 servers working at the time but, the food made the wait worth it. I will 100% be recommending this place to everyone I know and I will be a returning guest for sure!

Disappointing dining experience mainly due to attitude of the hostess - got the impression from her that customers were an inconvenience. Also no air conditioning which made the 20min wait for a glass of water even more uncomfortable.
