Our waitress was not the friendliest she forgot our order. Then had to get the other waitress to come check on us to see if we needed anything else.

It’s covid and I understand that but you could be more polite. I still tipped 20% all though she definitely didn’t deserve it, and she rolled her eyes at me I don’t know why bc I didn’t even say one word to her. The other blonde girl was amazing always asked if we needed anything came with everything right away.

Service was good and we were able to get a table very quickly. The patio is very cute and tucked away at the back of the restaurant. There’s a lot of room between the tables.

Unfortunately, the food was a bit disappointing. The carbonara was overly salty and had a fairly dry sauce. The sorrento gnocchi was just alright.

Authentic home-made Italian food in a quaint setting. Amazing value for the quality of food you're getting. Best pizza I've had in a while, crispy crust that wasn't too thin with the right amount of toppings (Pizza Domenica). Mushroom ravioli, tiramisu, and homemade gelato were also delicious. I will most definitely be coming back or ordering pizza for takeout.

Awesome family owned restaurant in Little Italy. The outdoor patio was packed but well spaced out for COVID. Highly recommend their pasta and pizzas. Will definitely be back soon

I don't really want you crowding this place because it's not so big and I want to be able to get a table whenever I feel like going there, which is often. Still, in fairness to you and in support of a wonderful little restaurant, I must say that Taverniti is a delightful spot that succeeds in all aspects. Go there! (But just save a spot for me, in case.)

They make the best Italian food I have ever eaten in my life! I've never liked pasta all my life, not even as a small child. This restaurant makes pasta I love!!! Absolutely delicious, and I plan to go back every chance I'll get.

Simple, fresh, delicious ingredients every time. Family-run. Nonna comes out from the kitchen every now and then to chat. She still does a lot of the cooking herself, bless her heart. Relaxed atmosphere, great for a casual-yet-special date night. No pressure to dress up, but perfect for an evening out. Social distancing on patio felt safe, staff are attentive and diligent.

My friends and I shared a couple pizzas and drinks. The pizzas were great, and I was impressed with the crust. It was not too doughy, and had a nice crunch to it. Would go back again!!

Amazing food, my sicilian boyfriend said the food tastes just like how they make it in Italy, i overheard the staff talking to eachother in Italian. Thats how you know youre getting authentic food, the prices are pretty good. For 2 drinks, 2 apps, and 2 entrees it was $80. Service was great as well. Definitely will come back!
