Italian
TAVERNA is nestled in Saskatoon's historic downtown core within walking distance of a number of major hotels in the renowned entertainment district. The building was originally the grocery section of the J.F. Cairns Dept. Store dating back to 1907. Taverna still maintains this historical charm and character, serving delicious, rustic, exceptionally well-prepared Italian food since 1969. Simultaneously comfortable and authentic, yet aspirational.

We believe that keeping the food fresh, simple and whole is the secret to a successful dish. Italian food doesn't have to be complicated or elaborate to be spectacular. You just start with high-quality ingredients like: intensely flavored tomatoes, fresh garlic, warm basil, thick golden oil of first pressed olives... and the conscious effort to find them locally grown, organic, seasonal and sustainable when ever possible.

    We found our service extremely slow. We were there for an hour longer than necessary because our woatress did not come back very often. There were tables around us that got seated, and ordered after we got our food and they were gone before our plates were cleared and about 30 minutes before we got our bills.

    Although it was clearly very busy the service was not flustered, the food arrived on time and well prepared. It had all the signs off an efficient restaurant with motivated staff.

    Pleasantly surprised. The food was very good. The waitress/server was new and it showed. The wrong entree was brought out to one of us and although it was remedied fairly quickly it would have been nice to have been offered a complimentary something. The server handled it well but it would have been nice if a manager had come out to talk to us. One more thing: the Caesar Salad didn’t appear or taste like it had any dressing.
