Italian
Taverna is a warm and inviting neighborhood restaurant that offers a truly Italian experience without having to leave Texas. Our Italian chefs strive to create the perfect menu using seasonal ingredients for their surprising entrees; every day we present a variety of northern Italian delights from simple comforts such as pan seared sea bass to delicate pasta and fabulous risotto.

Risotto is indeed our flagship dish. We only use Carnaroli rice – the “king of the rice”; thanks to its particular characteristics and firm texture the Carnaroli grain maintains its shape during the slow cooking required for a perfect and creamy risotto. Our broad offering includes truffle oil and Parmigiano risotto, bay scallops with home made pesto and an inspired Vin Santo risotto with asparagus and prosciutto.

A taverna in Italy is a special place where customers become friends and family. Here we celebrate the essence of hospitality and farm-to-table cooking reflecting our authentic Italian style.

Always the best service from management. They remember us every time we come in and seem to notice when we need assistance before we ask. Love the family atmosphere this restaurant has and holds many special memories for my mom and I.

The service was slow and you could tell that they were understaffed. The meals were a little under portioned for the hefty $30 a plate. Still... the food was good and the place was clean. But defiantly not a four star restaurant.

The food was not good! I’m a foodie too... pizza was soggy and greasy, pasta noodles were all broken so it was hard to get them to stay on fork, and the chicken Alfredo was very dry. Not to mention when we first walked in they were opening the patio which it was cold on Saturday and I kindly ask the manager I see you guys just open those when we sat down can we close them please and he argued that they had been opened all day.. I physically saw them opening them so he was calling his customer a liar in so many words. Really put a bad taste in my mouth... After many patrons complaints they closed them. They did give us free desert at the end, but in the end I don’t want free food I didn’t order I want good food that I ordered and paid for.

The ambiance at Traverna is great typically, but on this evening they sat us at a table by a door where the manager, hostess, and staff kept going through. At times they would keep the door open too long. They should not have this table in use when there are people on the patio and it is cold. We chose to be inside so as to not be cold or under a heat lamp. Choose your table wisely. :)

Apart from the charred octopus the food was a letdown. I cook better pasta in my home. The sauces were watery and eggs were over cooked . Won’t be going back to this location .

Had us packed in like sardines. It was very loud. Could hear everyone around us. Extremely expensive for a very impersonal experience and the spaghetti and turkey meatballs were not worth the price.

It was a Thursday night and we made a reservation here after an event we attended. Let me start by saying it was amazing! We were immediately greeted at the door and welcomed in. We arrived ahead of our reservation, but they seated us in the busy restaurant. The service was outstanding, knowledgeable and helpful while ordering. The food was the best Italian I’ve had in this area. The restaurant is warm and inviting, just like the staff. We had to stop ourself from going back on Friday. No doubt we’ll add Taverna to our regular rotation.

Excellent food as always! I would normally give Taverna a 5 star rating but we had several issues that led me to give the rating I did. First, in an Italian restaurant of the caliber of Taverna, you would expect the server (not waiter) to ask if we'd like Parmigiano and/or pepper. This is the first time I've ever had a server NOT offer it. The waiter eventually asked if the server had asked us and then apologized and delivered them. Second, I realize the restaurant cannot turn away children, but seating couples next to screaming children at 9 pm is not good for business. For those going to Taverna-Legacy West be aware and ask for another table.

Although it features an Italian food menu, this restaurant has absolutely no Italian vibe or ambience. Olive Garden feels more authentic.

Great food and reasonably-sized portions. We sat on the patio, and even though it was a warm evening, the doors were open so that a nice breeze from the A/C was blowing on the patio. The tables are set relatively close together, so the restaurant is somewhat noisy.

We have eaten at Taverna occasionally and usually have a good experience. Maybe it was an off night, but food and service were both off. Service was slow with drinks arriving watered down. They had clearly sat on the bar for a while on a hot night. Pastas were "just OK". There's better Italian food around. In fact, there's better Italian just steps away from Taverna at North Italia - serving up some very creative dishes. Try the short rib pasta.
