The brunch was perfect. My shrimp and asparagus omelet was delicious. The plate was hot. I love that. The meal is warm for the entire thing. Will return!

This is usually a fantastic regular of mine but it was utterly disappointing this time round . Service was very poor , forgotten starters , then forgotten drinks .the waitress wrote nothing down , repeatedly asked us the same questions and was completely useless for all of the service. The food was overcooked ( steak was burnt and I was not served the sauce I asked for which should have been rich and creamy , instead it was runny , greasy and over spicy ) and the gnocchi was grey and should not have been served AT ALL. We did notice there was only 1 chef and it was utter chaos by the looks of things. Manager did offer us replacement but no bloody good when the rest of your party have finished their food . Very very poor !!! Get your act together Taverna . You will have 1 last chance

Food was good. Server was rushing us for each step of the meal and brought us the bill before we asked for it. Considering it was our anniversary celebration, we wanted to take our time and enjoy ourselves.

One of our faves, especially Sunday for lunch. Our group had pizza, pasta, seafood and salads. All were excellent. Bellinis were delish. Always a treat.

Always an excellent restaurant. Service one of the friendliest restaurants in town. And the pizza and risotto best in town! Right now, due to the corona virus, they are being careful. More restrictive than any restaurant in Fort Worth. Too much so--lighten up! Plastic curtains are overkill and not appreciated. And going in one door and out another---only restaurant in town doing so, and totally unnecessary.

But--great restaurant and even better service. When this media pandemic is over, it will be even better!

Restricted to 25% capacity, Taverna did a good job of distancing diners. Our server and hostess as well as two managers were appropriately cautious about proper precautions and masks. Unfortunately, one server (wasn’t ours) kept her mask beneath her nose when it wasn’t pulled below her chin. Had she been our server, we would have walked. Food was great, our server attentive without “too much”. I had noted it was our anniversary on the reservation, but it wasn’t mentioned. Note: this is a noisy place. Even with my hearing aids I could not even distinguish what our server sail. My wife had to repeat everything for me because the background noise is significant, even at low capacity.

Overall the look of the restaurant was very nice although I expected something a little more fancy. Our appetizers were ok, the caprese salad was good but the focaccia with prosciutto was very nothing. The entrees were fine as well although my lasagna was gummy on the bottom. And the tiramisu was tasty but too sweet.

All of our food tasted amazing! We got the bruschetta, truffle risotto (light on the truffle which was perfect!) and the pear walnut pasta and everything was SO tasty! We couldn’t decide on the dessert so we got two - tiramisu and Nutella cheesecake! Both were so good but our preference was the cheesecake (more flavorful) but you can’t beat coffee and tiramisu in my opinion. We went on a Tuesday night so there weren’t many people there but the atmosphere was lovely and we so enjoyed our time!
The Pecan Oldie was a DELICIOUS cocktail!

We had a lovely Saturday night at Taverna. The food was fantastic, our server was polite, prompt, and anticipated our needs, and the cocktails we ordered were enjoyed by all. I was pleased when we came in 45 minutes prior to our reservation and were able to be seated right away. Overall the experience was very pleasant. The only negative thing we experienced during our visit was my interaction with the hostess. She clearly did not want to be at work and was rude in body language and tone. I brushed it off though and the rest of the visit was perfect!

To be rated 4.5 ...it was very disappointing. Asked to sit along the wall because it was easier with little kids and was told “that’s reserved for big groups - which never happened. They serve Italian wines but have no one that can tell you about them. Have
more potatoes than pasta.
Shrimp and pasta was so spicy I couldn’t eat most of the shrimp - which I’m not so sure were fresh. It’s okay Italian .... but certainly NOT a place I’d return. Think Disneys Epcot or Romano’s macaroni grill. Bummer
