Easily the best Italian food in downtown Austin! Loved the food, especially the foccacia. Visited thrice in a 4-week stay in Austin.

One of my favorite restaurants in Austin. For some reason, TripAdvisor has this listed on 6th Street, but it is actually on 2nd Street. If you like Parmesean Risoto, this is your restaurant! Pizza is also great - and of course, the Bruschetta. Great wine selection as well.

The food is good (not great) but go on Tuesday for 1/2 price bottles of wine. Every bottle is half price! Service can be spotty (I was there this week and it was really off). Reservation recommended but not required.

Needing an early dinner stop before a concert, my wife and I made a reservation at Taverna. It was a very good meal and overall experience. Upon phoning for a last minute reservation, a cooperative employee spent extra time and secured us one after first being told that there were no reservations available. At the restaurant we were seated promptly and glad for the reservation as the venue quickly filled up. Our waitress was friendly, attentive and well-informed about the menu. Both dishes ordered were very good (Risotto and Chicken Piccata) and not outlandishly priced for a decent restaurant in a downtown location. Finally, we would certainly dine at Taverna again

The food was bland, and the server was a tad obnoxious. Outdoor sitting saves this places bit, and maybe this was just our experience, but the bad jokes on top of under seasoned Italian food made it for a very weak impression, especially for the price. Meh, we'll skip it if we're in town ever again.
