Taverna - Wilmington
Would definitely recommend this place. Cool vibe with great food. Nice selection. Had a pizza for appetizer which was tasty with great crust. For entrees, we had the tuna and cannelloni. Both were exceptional !! Service was wonderful. Waitress was very knowledgeable and perfectly friendly. Very nice place for dinner on a Sunday early evening.
We had the chicken Parm and homemade gnocchi and they were both delicious. Gnocchi has a touch of spice which was a nice addition. Our friends shared a pizza which they enjoyed. Great service from Leah, who offered some helpful suggestions. Thank you!
Ambiance was cozy and comfortable. Cocktails were good, wine was just ok. Food was great! Enjoyed the experience and will be returning again soon.
I have no complaints- we asked to turn the music down some and they did, and I server MAX was very attentive.
Seated promptly and service was very attentive and efficient.
The ambiance, food and service was very good. We had a waiter who was very attentive, friendly and respectful. I had the eggplant lasagna. It was excellent! I liked it better than the lasagna I make, and I'm of Italian decent! Sauce was also good. The manager came over a couple of times to ask how we were doing! All staff was friendly and even the bartender who didn't wait on us thanked us and wished us a good night (as did the waiter and manager). We'll definitely be back to this one!
Delicious meal. The service was good. I had the pasta with sausage and I highly recommend you come hungry when you order that! My MIL had the Sunday slow-roasted pork so I will definitely be returning to try that!
Appetizer of arugula and artichoke was nice. Both dinner entrees we ordered were very good as well. Service was attentive ( water refills, questions of need at right times, etc.) Will certainly return
Our food was very good. Our server was on point, he honestly made the dining experience awesome.
AWESOME! Great service lovely atmosphere and fantastic food
Well organized, and executed. Management was involved throughout.
Angel was a very attentive waiter. He greeted us quickly after being seated taking our drink orders. He then returned to tell us the specials a little bit about the restaurant and to tend to our questions. It was a birthday celebration that was meant to be a surprise, and he pulled it off expertly! In addition to great service the food is pretty good as well. My husband loved the calamari and my daughter loved the pizza. We will definitely be back
We truly enjoyed our dinner at Taverna in North Wilmington. Even though the restaurant was packed, I truly appreciated the maitre d’ of the restaurant honoring my request to be seated at a cozy booth near the bar - I know that wasn’t easy for him to finagle. But he did, and it meant a lot to us. The food and wine choices were simply outstanding. I had the homemade pasta special which was delicious. Our waiter was attentive but never made us feel rushed, which I also appreciated. It was a wonderful dining experience. I highly recommend Taverna.
We had reservations for 5:30 pm on a Saturday and were seated in a nice corner take away from the main eating area by the kitchen. There were 4 of us. The food was amazing and the bread and dipping oil delicious. I had the rigatoni with 3 big meatballs which was perfect... large enough serving to take some home for lunch. It got Very crowd and the noise level got quite loud by bar area and kitchen so we were thankful we had a quieter table sorry could talk. Our waitress was attentive and delightful... sort I can’t remember name. Definitely would recommend and we will be back!
Everything was really good. Food delicious. We had the whipped ricotta, which was really light, then the chicken ravioli and pasta aurora. Our server Leah was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. She was great. A really enjoyable experience.
Menu was fairly limited. Food did not have a lot of flavor. Disappointed us.
Great Italian food n wine -service super-new site -nicely done inside-great entrance
We've liked Taverna in Newark for years and are happy it's come to North Wilmington. While the space can be noisy on weekends, mid-week dinnertime is fine. The menu is appealing and the staff is friendly. One way to improve... the servers always proudly announce the bread is fresh from a Hoboken bakery and it's fine, but it would be SO much better if served warm.
Meh. Felt like a chain.
Angel was an amazing server! Recommend some amazing food! The atmosphere was great
Great place to grab a casual dinner with my husband or lunch with coworkers.
Max was a terrific waiter. food was great as usual
If one of us had selected a different entree it could have been all five stars. Three of us thoroughly enjoyed our dinner! We will definitely return; the service was superb and all else was terrific!
Taverna is always a terrific place to have lunch. We have several places within the restaurant that we choose to be seated depending on who we are with, how many people are in our party and there is a specific reason we are at Taverna. For instance, if we are going there for business we may choose to be in a booth and not in the main area.. Yesterday we chose that area and the waiter was very accommodating i.e. he did not rush us or stand over us pushing us along. We felt very comfortable and the food was just as we ordered it. Definitely come back to Taverna and recommend it to others!
Service and food were awesome. First time there and we will be back!
Excellent service,good food and atmosphere. Friendly.
I had an issue with my entree being entirely too salty. My waitress took it back immediately and, within minutes, the manager appeared at my table with an apology and an assurance that my second choice would be coming shortly. Within minutes, my replacement entree appeared, piping hot, and it was delicious.
The professional manner in which my issue was resolved speaks very highly of the management of this fine establishment. We will definitely be visiting Taverna in the near future!
Everything was great but exceptionally great service. Emily, I think, was our waitress’s name.
My husband and I visited Taverna several days ago for my Birthday dinner and it exceeded expectations. To start, the atmosphere is wonderful and staff greeted us immediately. I must have put my birthday into the open table app several years ago when I signed up, so when we got to our table there was a cute little birthday card that was signed by all of the staff members. It was such a simple and thoughtful gesture and really put a smile on my face! Our waitress Danielle was awesome and provided such friendly and quick service. Food and drinks were excellent. We will definitely be back!
Very good food. Fun atmosphere. Excellent service.
Yummmmm. Always a wonderful meal.
Great food, friendly, helpful staff, new and beautiful interior with a very nice manager who came to check on our table
Great meal great wine. Our server Casey was excellent.
Promptly seated upon arrival, and Casey quickly greeted us (and was great the whole meal)! I was super surprised by the number of celiac safe gluten free options on the menu for an Italian restaurant AND it was delicious! Salmon was cooked to perfection and the sauce was amazing! The “personal sized” pizza was falling off the edges of the plate, and my husband brought half of it home! My mother in law said the chicken Parmesan was the best she’s ever had! We will definitely be back!
Everything was wonderful as usual, from the staff to the food and drinks. I do wish they had the Cosmo Blanco martini like in one of their other restaurants, but other than that it was perfect.
Please improve the quality of your wines by the glass offerings. The reds were all too sweet and not of good quality. Why not add Chianti to your list of wines by the glass? Overall experience and food were great and we will be back but hope you address the quality of your wines by the glass. Happy to pay more for a better glass of wine.
Our server could not have been more helpful and friendly
Food was good I had the chicken dish
Thanks for the great review!
The Tuesday special veal marsala was pretty good. Why not have it on daily menu ?
The happy hour has too many fu-fu cocktails and craft beers, Why not other draft beers,and cocktails(martinis,manhattans, etc.) ?
Hi Steve, Thanks for the great review. We do update and switch out Happy Hour menus quite frequently. check back soon. We look forward to serving you again.
