I have been dating in Dallas for over a year now, and Taverna is my all-time favorite restaurant to go on a date! Whether you are looking for a cozy, romantic place to take your significant other or looking to impress a first date, look no further than Taverna. The food is incredible (the risotto is to DIE for!), the wine selection is great, the service is impeccable and the ambiance is unbeatable! Located in Uptown, you'll be close to several great bars for after dinner drinks (assuming the date goes well). Get there early if you don't want to wait for a table - seating is limited. But trust me, it is well worth the wait!

Cool spot with good Italian food.Pizza was thin crust with fresh and unique toppings, very good with our wine. My recommendation is to go easy on the toppings or the crust will be wet in the middle. Small restaratunt so expect to wait but I think overall worth it. I will definatley go back. I do agree with the person below about the ""snooty service"" though. The bar tender was too cool to tend bar I guess.

I love Taverna! The excellent food and hectic vibe reminds me of those really good neighborhood bistros in London, Paris and Rome.
I eat here as often as I can. My good fortune to live close by really pays off when I visit Taverna. Alberto, keep up the good work!

Went for the first time on a Saturday night before the crowds came. The atmosphere is quite cozy - it can get loud though and tables are close together. Pizzas have creative toppings and a thin, crispy crust - recommended. The service left something to be desired. Although we were seated promptly (there was no wait), the customer service ended there. Both tables next to us, that were seated well after we were, received their food before we did (all of us were parties of 2), and actually left before we had ours. Not only did it take a long time to get our food, but our waiter never returned to ask how it was. If the service had been better, I might consider returning. I just don't feel like paying for food that is ok and for waitstaff that could care less if I was there.

Mama mia what a pizza! I Love love love their pizzas! I ate there three times last month! I usually get the margarita pizza, but the last time my vegetarian friend wanted to try the eggplant. I have to tell you I was shocked! I LOVE the eggplant too! It was sweet and crispy on top of the cheesy soft pizza. What a combination! I usually don?t like eggplant so I thought I was just going to pick it off ( big smile) , I ended up asking for more and the eggplant pizza is now my favorite! They have nothing bad on the menu! Try it all! I love the chopped salad at lunch too! Yummmmy! Go go go NOW!

I went to Taverna the other night with some co-workers for happy hour. We got a table and ordered this pizza-like bread dish in which the bread was dusted with a cheese and you could dip it into this delicious oil mix. We also split a pizza and a mozzarella salad. The food was fantastic and the service very quick. The atmosphere is very warm and inviting. This would be a great place for a romantic dinner for two. I can't wait to try out there deck area when the weather gets warmer.

Taverna is a spectacular, fun to visit Italian restaurant. The risotto is a must have--all of the flavors. The quality is superb and the taste matches. We have been there 3 times and every time enjoyed it even more than the last. Nightly specials are unique and delicious. We highly recommend this restaurant.
