We could tell by the amount of visitors from Roma that this restaurant was going to be special and it lived up to our expectations. Warm atmosphere, delicious food and plenty of it - lamb chops in rosemary and garlic, and orange Tiramisu were wonderful. The wine was reasonably priced and excellent. An authentic Italian experience - the little statue of the Madonna in the front of the building such a lovely, typically Italian effect.

We found the Taverna a very friendly restaurant. As we didn't speak much Italian so were given a english translated menu but it was quite difficult to read (the font) and the translations didn't quite make sense. I would suggest leaving this until you are familiar with ordering an Italian meal but is then definitely worth the visit.

It's difficult to add anything new to the existing excellent reviews of this restaurant. The review from member SaraManiBucate sums up my thoughts perfectly. Every morsel of food at this charming restaurant was a culinary and sensory delight. After having 1.5 days of our vacation ruined due to WindJet Airline's loss and subsequent find of our luggage, we came here based on a recommendation from our hotel (Grand Hotel Villa Fiorio - thumbs up) to have a celebratory lunch and we were rewarded with amazing food, enchanting atmosphere and outstanding service. It greatly exceeded my expectations and perfectly captured the area's charm and gastronomic delights.

Our server, Carlo Parigini, went above and beyond with his attention to detail, charming, proficient and professional service. After we finished our lingering meal, he gave us a personal tour of the restaurant's ancient wine cellar. He melted my heart with his kindness and restored the happiness to our vacation.

If you are looking for a place with charm, great food and great service - look no further.
