We had planned to go to another restaurant but with 1 1/2 hr wait at 6 PM we decided to go to an old favorite, Taverna. Valet parking located right across the street is the way to go. I always love the risotto. This time...More

First step... Read the Specials! They've got some seriously tasty contenders that pop up on the specials from time to time including risottos, fishes, and meats. I have yet to have a bad meal here and the wine pairings are spot on.

I've eaten at Taverna many times over the years. But I was just here again with good friends on a beautiful fall evening, and we sat on the patio. The weather and the wine combined for a perfect night. We had gnocchi, mushroom risotto, and...More

This is a popular restaurant and it isn't surprising why when you take your first bite! Brunch with a Mimosa or Bloody Mary is the best! Servers are attentive. Outside dining is preferable when the weather permits. We love the atmosphere and the food.

I do not know, I haven't seen any dogs when I was there. However, that area of Dallas is very dog friendly. I would call and ask them.
