    Nice vibe, but way overpriced for a brunch I could have made at home. Nothing special about the brunch, just standard fare. Waiter was fine, but seemed very bored and disinterested. Glad I tried it, but don’t need to go back.

    We had a party of 8 and our water was the absolute best and was even nice enough to split our check 8 ways which I know is a bit much to ask for. I come to Taverna every time I’m in town. Definitely my favorite spot on Buckhead!

    Noon was a good time to be at Taverna. We ate inside; it was not crowded and the noise level was fairly low. Megan was an an excellent server. I enjoyed my birthday lunch very much.

    We had lunch reservation for 5 but didn't seat us til everyone was there which was fine. We finally got seated and our server Nice was great! Our orders took forever to be served though it was really busy. We all got our orders except 1 which took another 30 min wait. The manager was kind enough to give it for free! I hope the kitchen will have a better system getting the orders done. All in all it was a so-so experience which was a bit disappointing since we were all from out of town trying to meet in Atl for lunch.

    Excellent stop in Buckhead for some rustic Italian. Strongly recommend sitting outside and taking in all the scenes from a bustling part of town. Good food, great service, decent prices.. I'd return for sure!

    Service is attentive but not overbearing. The menu and food is excellent. We loved the Shrimp Risotto and Eggplant Parmesan. The meatball appetizer is amazing with a very special sauce. Everything was fresh and homemade. This is a vey special place to dine. The prices are reasonable also.

    We absolutely enjoy coming to Taverna. The ambiance, open atmosphere and the food makes it a delightful experience. Always a joy to be immediately greeted upon arrival by Chuck. In a restaurant full of people, he always makes you feel special and important. As if we're the only ones there. Thank you.

    We had reservations for two on Saturday evening and were seated promptly. The restaurant was fairly empty but most people were seated outside since it was a nice evening. Our server took my partner’s drink order (unsweet tea) but instead brought sweet tea. It was fixed when we alerted him to the error. We ordered Caesar salad and bruschetta to as appetizers, and I ordered a glass of wine at the same time. The apps came out within 5 minutes. About halfway through our server asked us is we wanted salt or pepper… a bit too late. When apps were cleared we placed our entree orders (carbonara and risotto). Five minutes later they appeared. Still no wine at this point so I figured they forgot it. I like my wine before meals, so I didn’t really want it at that point anyway. My wine came a few minutes later. About halfway through our server offered us fresh Parmesan… again too late. The whole meal the kitchen seemed to be two steps ahead of the rest of the service, which made for awkward timing. As for the food, it was subpar and tasted like many shortcuts were taken- using cream sauce for the carbonara instead of the traditional method, watery risotto with half cooked rice, and too sweet Caesar dressing that probably was from a bottle. We skipped dessert and our entire meal lasted less than 35 minutes. We likely will not be back. Disappointed.

    I have been to this place almost 4-5 times and it has never disappointed. Food is amazing and the vibe is amazing. Drinks are pretty nice as well. Try the Lavender refresher if you like gin-based cocktails and Cucumber crush is good too. Spaghetti Pasta and Truffle Pizza are my favorites. Service is awesome too.

    It was the first time I sat inside. The noise level was disturbingly high coupled with the high level of music sound. It was a chaos which gave me a head ache

    Service took forever- the crowd had dissipated but the wait for pasta? Way too long. It was Mother’s Day, but brunch was over. Sign said $3 Mimosas- we sat down and my mom ordered one only to be told that the deal was over at 3. We waited about 25 min for focaccia bread- another 30 min for 2 pasta dishes. I ordered the Gnocchi short rib ragu- not my best choice. Took it home. Had never been here and was excited to try it for Mother’s Day- it failed but now I know
