My family, wife, 2 adult children, and myself, had dinner twice at La Tavernetta. Both mea;s were enjoyable and reasonably priced. If you like italian cold cuts, you must try the mixed cold cut appetizer - the presentation alone is noteworthy - thin sliced ham...More

Gorgeous little restaurant tucked down a side street. Very small menu consisting of basic food which was all over priced & average at best when it arrived. No atmosphere on the outside terrace, lots of reserved tables but no sign of any customers.

We tried plenty of the top rated restaurants here on trip advisor but la tavernetta was by far the best one. Superb food, friendly staff and we found a really good wine that we were able to buy on the spot at an affordable price.

The tuna tartar starter was very good which set my expectations up for the pasta main course. The pasta was stodgy and was accompanied with a bland tomato sauce. The deserts on the menu were all creamy. The had run out of Rose wine!

The meeting point between the island's people and the tourists, the contact point beetwen venetian and tuscan cuisine, the arrival point where you can find warmth and good wishes.
