“Enjoyed it three times”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

We were staying in the village of Vagliagli, and this restaurant was a welcome dining spot. The food was excellent, and the service was professional. We had different entrees on each visit and enjoyed every one.

“Average everything”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

I desperately wanted the food to be amazing but it was all just average. What made it worse was that we were charged €6.50 for a bottle of water and were billed three "pane et coperte", one for myself, one for my husband and the third for our two year old! We'd spent a week in Tuscany and this was the first time our two year old was charged a cover charge!

“Consistently high quality”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

The service was very professional and the food was of a high quality. We loved every dish we ate.

From the service to the food to the wine, our whole evening was consistently great.

I'd definitely recommend La Taverna.

“Surprisingly nice inside, food not quite there.....”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

We stayed for a week just outside Vagliagli, which is a small village which you would drive through and never think to stop. The reviews on TA coaxed us to give the Taverna a try - and when we ambled through the door we were very pleasantly surprised. Extremely nice inside, well laid out, kitchen and chefs in view, this was full of promise. One of us started with Bruschetta which was fine. I had pick with tomatoe and oregano, which was far too salty, otherwise would have been delicious. My son had ravioli with truffles which was very good. For seconding two of us had Tagliata which was fine-although slightly too rare for our personal taste. The boss (wife) had pecorino cheese with vegetables, which was fine, and my son had meatballs which were excellent. We then had adessert - white chocolate mousse tart, fine, chocolate souffle, very good, and creme brûlée which was good. For a "middle of nowhere" restaurant, this came to 145€ which included a 24€ bottle of wine, a bottle of water, and two coffees. This wasn't horrendously expensive, but far from cheap - in fact the same price as we'd paid a few nights previously at Da Pasquale in Lucca (separate review and a far superior experience). Bottom line, if you are in the area it's worth a visit but if you need to drive a distance then there will/should be better alternatives.
