Wonderful Roman Holiday Pizza on thin whole wheat crust, as well as the Vatican which my friend said was the best pizza she had ever had. Delicious cocktails, great service, a wonderful lunch as always!

We arrived in Stratford in the early evening and were hungry for Italian food since our small town in Ontario has a dearth of restaurants. We walked in, saw a stylish spot to eat, and were promptly seated for dinner upstairs about 8:30 PM. I had a cocktail and my wife a glass of wine then we ordered. The pasta... More

A wonderful meal in the Taverna on a rainy November Friday. Exemplary service and some very unique salads for dinner. Finished things off with a nightcap at their small but beautiful bar overlooking the main street. This is a gem of a restaurant and worth a look. The downstairs pizzeria is also a great spot. To call it a pizzeria... More

Delicious thin-crust pizza, various topping combos or build your own. Whole wheat crust available. Entrees also very tasty (although pasta vongole is a little on the bland side). Friday evening pizza special is my favourite.

We were excited at the cozy room and booth. The menu looked good , Friday pizzas are half price. We ordered the carrot soup. It arrived lukewarm thin and flavourless. We sent it back and settled for our pizza. The Za za Gabor was delicious. The one we created was so so. Service was pleasant and prompt and the venue... More

The pizza here is really good. They hands down nailed the thin crust. It was crunchy, smokey, light and held the toppings perfectly. This place was packed - so book yourself a reservation if planning a weekend visit. Highly recommend the 'Soprano' and 'Venetian.' Do yourself a favour and go heavy on the hot oil drizzle.

A cute restaurant in downtown Stratford. The food was served quickly and made fresh. Food was good, but portions weren't super big.

Had a lunch/dinner and enjoyed the basement location. The service was good and the spaghetti and meat balls really fill you up. Good wine selection.

My wife and I recently visited Stratford for a weekend to catch a show and enjoy some good food. After a great weekend,we saw what looked like a nice little Italian spot and decided to go for lunch. Now i do not normally write bad reviews as I believe it can harshly affect the livelihood of all workers. But this... More

Very basic. We had the spinach salad which was soggy and the combined flavours did not compliment each other at all, especially the bacon? Then we ordered a pizza (build your own), for an Italian pizzeria the best part was I think the thin crust other than that the sauce was basic and flavourless and the cheese was too much... More
