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 got to Taverna often. The food is always great, but last night they topped themselves. I was in Italy recently and this rivaled the restaurants we ate at in Rome. Excellent. The server was attentive and made some excellent recommendations. We were there for our anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed.

    Italian food at its best in Saskatoon. We ordered 3 appetizers and 4 mains and everyone loved their food. The atmosphere is dark and lovely and great for a semi-formal night out.

    Great service by Carlos. Food was outstanding and portion sizes adequate. Good value for a fantastic dinner. All pasta dishes with scallops and shrimp were excellent.

    We have been to Taverna many times and it is usually a 5 star experience. This time the food was a 3.5 to 4 due to the overuse of butter and salt on all of our meals. Not sure why, but everything was way too salty and just dripping in butter. The Bruschetta as a starter was delicious though.
