    Went for my boyfriends birthday food was absolutely AMAZING. Definitely the best authentic Italian is the city. Get the gnocchi and a pizza you won't regret it. Even gave us tiramisu for free for his birthday.

    Haven’t been here in several months only because we have been out of town and just have not had the occasion but so happy we found the time tonight and enjoyed the pesto gnocchi and the gnocchi Sorrento, great food options, and always personal family style service, this place is such a dependable go to restaurant for the best fresh gnocchi in the city!

    The food was consistently delicious, no complaints there. However, our visit hit a few bumps. Despite having a reservation, our seating situation wasn't ideal. We were initially placed at a table for four, squeezed in as a group of five. Later, we were moved outside, where a lively gathering nearby made conversation a challenge. To make matters worse, the heater outside was acting up, leaving us a bit chilly. Unfortunately, our evening was cut short due to the noise and discomfort. It would have been great if the staff had been more proactive in addressing these issues.

    The calamari was rubbery and had a strange dusty rub on it. The margarita pizza was very floppy and the sauce was watery. The Gnocchi was good but the Parmesan wasn’t fresh, it tasted like it was from a shaker and was put on the pasta from a bowl with a spoon. Waiter was very scarce. Wouldn’t recommend this place for good Italian food unfortunately.

    Tried the calzones for the first time - nothing special the crust tasted undercooked , the inside wasn't stuffed enough so needless to say wouldn't recommend or order again. Huge disappointment in the washroom conditions - needed cleaning, I was sorry I had to use them. Looks like also there has been an overhaul in the staff - so to that I say Tavs has lost its authentic vibe. Gonna try someplace else next time

    Best Gnocchi in the city, hands down. I have been to Tav's a few times now, and the service is always on point. The team is super friendly and always willing to make recommendations. My one qualm about Tav's is that they have a limited cocktail menu if you are into wine.

    I had made a reservation and when we got there, the place had plenty of open tables and yet they decided to put us in the "back patio" where it was cold, dark, damp and empty. Was NOT impressed at all and will probably not go back.
