Went in thinking it was all about pizza. Had a delicious Italian meal. The waitress was outgoing and vary friendly answered many of our questions about The island and places to go.

We ate here and our pasta dishes were killer. The shrimp on this island is very good. We did have burnt chicken for chicken Marsala and dehydrated mushrooms so that person was disappointed. The rest of us were very impressed. A second night we ordered pizza. Thin crust. Ordered the double wide as recommended by waitress and took home flourless... More

We visited twice during our week on Vieques, once with 8 and once with our full group of 10. Service was reasonably fast, especially given our groups' size. The white Sangria was tasty. But the star of the show was the pizzas! The Greek was so good! And the Meat Lovers, Buffalo, and Double Wide were also enjoyed by our... More

What a charming dinner house. Joe and Liz do a fantastic job feeding locals and tourists alike. The staff is so friendly, the food so delicious and the atmosphere cool and inviting. Not many places have AC on this tiny island, but Taverna is chillin' plus they make the best pizzas ever. They've got a full bar and wide screen... More

This was the perfect place to order take-out pizza on our first night on Vieques. The pizzas are huge with fresh ingredients, a great crust, and we especially loved the meat-lovers pizza.

Went to Taverna tonight with my family and had a an excellent Italian meal. My wife and I had the pasta dishes which were some of the best I have ever had. My teenage sons had the pizza which they really liked. The bread was also amazing and to top it off the pricing was very reasonable.

This charming establishment on a quiet side street in Isabell offers the BEST pizza- not just on the island but rivals any pizza you've had in a big city! The pasta dishes are creative, tasty and fresh and the portions are filling! The staff here is fun and friendly and they have a nice bar where you can try one... More

We are from New York so the golden rule is no pizza or bagels from anywhere else measure up. Located in Isabel this pizza is the biggest surprise on the island. All of the ingredients are spot on. The cheeses and meats are obviously imported and someone has taken the time to perfect the crust. It's brick oven baked and... More
