This restaurant has been closed for a while after the original owner passed away. It has been reopened by one of the former staff and much of the wait staff is the same. We ordered pizza as a take out and it was top notch!

Same great menu with Naples, Italy inspired recipes. No heavy garlicky seasoning. If you are not big on pasta, they offer a side of steamed veggies. Everything we have tried over the years is tasty and plentiful including several Chef's Specials of the night. If you want smaller portions and prices, go for lunch or order their fabulous pizza. We... More

Service was great and the food was better. Mother's Day is usually hit or miss due to the crowds service and food quality. La Taverna did a fantastic job on all accounts. The waitress was great new the menu and checked in at all the right times. We shall return. Recommendations : calamari, all the pizzas and the osso bocco.

We really enjoyed this restaurant in the past but we were a bit worried after such a long time between their closing and re-openning. We need not have worried. I had the margherita (sp)pizza which is the best I have found in the area. Only in NYC and Italy have I tasted better. My wife had the pomodorro(sp) which she... More

Although is was basically good food we will not go back. For 2 plates that only had 2 stuffed shells on each it was $25 Really that is crazy and it was more pasta than filling. We ordered an appetizer that the waiter forgot to put in with our order and said do you still want it...Duh. No refills on... More

I was so excited that this restaurant had reopened after closure for several months. I decided to take my son's family here to celebrate his birthday. We noticed that the menus we were given were lunch menus (we were there at dinner) but just figured they only had one menu upon reopening. We ordered and were expecting a bill of... More

There's commercial Italian which we've all eating and there's this place. This REALLY Italian food and maybe dishes you're not familiar with. Never had a bad dish here. It's always a special occasion when I come here even if it's not. Bread basket is great but don't load up (hard not to) because the food's excellent and you don't want... More

My husband and I went to La Taverna with friends to celebrate a birthday. While the interior could use a little sprucing up. We had the Chicken Piccata, Chicken Parmigiana and Salmon Al Limone and let me tell you it was delicious. The portions were large and price was reasonable. The staff was attentive without being overbearing. I would recommend... More
