“The best of the Llandudno Italians we've tried so far”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

This place is always popular and it is necessary to book - not just in high summer - we had failed to get in on spec previously. We just had bruschetta and pizza - it was very good and the bottle of barbera was super and very good value. Our meal was better than the ones we've had at Valentino's and Romeo's not long ago, even though they currently rate a bit higher on TripAdvisor. Service was good. The only offputting thing was the very dusty dado rail next to our table.....

“Ok - nothing special”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Went on a busy Friday night after having booked.
Place felt like it could have done with a good clean - front of house manager looked like he had just got out of bed.

Good choice on menu - reasonably tasty food - fast service.
Drinks well priced.

“Excellent Meal Again”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

We had a fantastic meal here again, just like last time.
Lovely house wine and great choices of meal, only downside was lack of Tiramisu, as it had sold out, the cheese plate however, more than made up for this - it was fantastic.

“Booking system a waste of time”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

If you intend to go to this restaurant you probably need to book, especially if a Saturday. So if you arrive in Llandudno on a Saturday you wont get in. We arrived on Saturday and saw the restaurant and tried phoning all through the day to book a table. At 6pm we gave up and walked there, to be turned away by a very unhelpful waiter who told us we should have booked. We asked how could we book if no one answered the phone and he said they just dont answer the phone once they are booked up as they would be answering the phone all day! What sort of a system is that? We were dumbfounded, never having come across this policy before, and wondered why they dont at least have a polite answerphone explaining the policy. For that reason I would not attempt to go to this restaurant again as I really do not think they care about their customers

“Really,Really Good!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

La Taverna is one of those rare finds! It never disappoints because on every occasion we have been it has been pure excellence! Food and atmosphere just perfect! The staff are so friendly and really look after you, our little girls tastes are a little on the fussy side, but here they have always gone out of their way to tailor make her food so that she enjoys it! Do book as it is only small and soon fills up!!Great!
