We wanted to try a different place and picked this because of the reviews and weren’t disappointed! Great food in a causal, non pretentious spot. Enjoyed every of the 5 plates ordered. Well designed menu with thoughtful and creative options. And hands down best fried in town which is a nice compliment to other foods. Defiantly worth a try!

Delightful service, delicious food. COVID protocols followed. We had a two person charcuterie and some bacon fries (with drinks, of course), and loved all of it. Fresh, thoughtful, small & light portions for a perfect price. Highly recommended, will definitely be going back and trying the fried chicken & jalapeno waffle sandwich. Update: Went back again this weekend and the service continued to be top notch. Really felt like a fine dining experience at an extremely reasonable price. Had the charcuterie again, which has been re-vamped with some incredibly vibrant and fresh ingredients, made in house. The Midnight Espresso cocktail was absolutely delicious as well. La Taverna never disappoints, and we'll surely be back again and again!

This restaurant and its staff deserve 10 stars. Aneesh, the chef, came to greet us and check in on us throughout the night despite being busy in the kitchen (making the most amazing food) and dealing with being understaffed. We were all thoroughly impressed with his recommendations on food and wine. 3 of us got The Bear sandwich and we would recommend it a million times over! Overall, such a wonderful experience!!!
