At #2 on TripAdvisor and recommended to us, our expectations were maybe higher than they should have been. This is a very smart, modern restaurant, yet has lots of character and tradition. Menu is good and varied and reasonably priced. Our starters were very good...More

We had all starters on the menu, they where all good. The mains however where very average. The pepper sauce that came with the steaks was very poor, the pasta with vongole was very bland. Very nice staff so almost feel guilty writing this review...More

Without our gracious hosts at Villa Finzi (a definitely commendable B & B just outside of Palestrina), we'd never have chanced upon Taberna in the little (and in truth, not very fetching) side alley of Corso Pierluigi. However, what a find! Young, ambitious, welcoming chef...More

My wife and I found this restaurant thanks to Trip Advisor when we discovered that our original choice and one of our previous favourites in Palestrina had closed down. The very good reviews and high ranking in TA convinced us to give it a try...More
