This is the only place in Ontario -- outside of Toronto -- to get pizza.Sometimes they get busy before shows, but that's a good indication that it's a quality restaurant. I haven't been upstairs since the renovation but that's only because everytime I go I get a craving for their pizza -- it's almost addictive. If someone is going to... More

When we entered the Taverna on the main floor we were advised that the more informal Pizzeria was in the basement of the same building - so despite a recent fall which limited my mobility - I made my way down the flight of stairs to find a very nice atmosphere and a very tasty pizza. My partner had a... More

Nice and cozy ambiance, waitress could have been a bit more welcoming, but service was good. Good price point. Offer whole wheat crust - bonus!

This is a great place for two people of large group to go if you are looking for something different than just pepperoni on your pizza. Friday night is the best time as they are half price. Try to get a table is the room with the open bake oven; great smell to make you hungry.

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.

Thank Caitlin K
