Sorry we have to speak as we find but this was not one of the best lunches we enjoyed. Located by the car park at the top end of town we were warmly welcomed and were quickly found a table for lunch on the terrace which overlooks the wonderful valley below. We ordered 2 antipasti as we only wanted a light lunch c€16 plus €4 for bread. Compared to others we enjoyed this was unfortunately only average.

We dined here the first evening of our week long trip to Soriano. We were with a group and ate family-style. There was so much food at the table and it just kept coming. Antipasta, first courses, main courses, dessert, after-dinner drinks. It was a good thing we had to walk back to our flat to work off some of the delicious food! Service was great - not a single complaint. Food is authentic recipes from the area and just so good! Dining outdoors was fun and it was a great evening, eating, getting to know our travel-mates, eating and talking. Oh - and more eating!

The Taverna, another almost hidden gem in a quiet, seclude backstreet area of Soriano, proved to be one of the restaurant and meal highlights - not just of our past vacation in Soriano, but also of our entire trip through France and Italy.
During our weeklong stay in Soriano (having had the truly immense privilege of staying at the close by Palazzo Catalina - another secret gem which I hesitate to promote for fear that too many people will discover it also!) we had heard about and actually walked past the Taverna several times - but never seemed to have the time to take the time and enjoy a meal there. During our week, the Taverna was highly recommended by the hotel staff and by locals any time that we had made any inquiries about the best places to enjoy a meal.
Finally on our final night in the village, we teamed up with approx. 20 other guests of the hotel - as even as hotel guest we had had the WONDEFUL opportunity to meet and greet the other guests and mutually partake in both planned and casual tours, events, cocktails gathers, etc. that the hotel organized for those interested in partaking. AND this final night group outing at the Taverna again became one of the unforgettable highlights of this trip. The group of guests actually became a small family of friends.
So the 24 + of us ended up at Taverna, and the staff, the ambiance, the AMAZING food & drink, and the absolutely WONDERFUL service made for a totally unforgettable experience.
The food was tremendous - ALL fresh, local house classics and specialties. Between our group we ordered and extremely WIDE selection of starters, entrees, main dishes, desserts, etc...many of these were shared and taste tested amongst our group. ALL were PERFECT!
The service staff, greeters, waiters, bus staff ALL made the evening even more perfect - great service and attention!
The Tavernas location, although abut hidden, does provide a very private ambiance and amazing viewpoint of the distant village hilltop and castle. We chose to sit outside in the private, trellis covered terrace - which was amazing on a warm, breezy, star lite night But the interior dining area provides the classic and historically / traditionally appointed catacomb atmosphere in keeping with a centuries small and as yet undiscovered Italian village on-a-hill!
The restaurant, the food, the staff and the atmosphere they created, as well as the international group of traveller 'company' made our final night and our final meal 'magic'.

Make a point to explore and find the Taverna!

We cannot wait to return!
