Taverna Italian Kitchen
This is a limited intervention style of cooking, inspired by family tradition. We don't try and upstage our ingredients with elaborate techniques or clutter them up with fancy sauces. It's just simple respect for intensely flavoured San Marzano tomatoes, fresh garlic, warm basil, thick golden oil of first pressed olives and the conscious effort to bring locally grown, organic, and sustainable ingredients to your table when ever possible.
Located on Saskatoon’s famed 21st Street, just steps away from an array of shops, variety of hotels and the gorgeous South Saskatchewan River, Taverna is the ideal setting for many occasions.View Private Dining Details
Tony was awesome. Attentive and knowledgeable!
As usual, great food, service with a cozy atmosphere. Has been our favourite for years for a good reason ❤️❤️
The food was great, as was the wine. Stephen took good care of us, and i almost felt like i was n Italy again! (Although prices are much higher here than Italy :-)
Food is amazing, and great selection of wine. I would 10/10 recommend this to friends.
Valentine’s Day late reservation attempt had us with bar seating. When we arrived many tables were available so we did get one. Not sure why none we’re available on this app. As extra tables were added for the occasion it was a bit squished
The food was amazing
The food was so...so. The rice balls with the beet and goat cheese centres were under seasoned for my taste. The Strawberry cocktail was short on liquor flavour, rather watered down.I ordered the arugula salad with vinegar dressing but it came late and, again, short on dressing. The waitress Kindly brought more dressing. I also ordered a half portion of fettuccini with an Alfredo sauce. It was not hot enough, dry and rather congealed with too little sauce which I had to order extra. The flavouring of the sauce was only mediocre. The service was the best part with a pleasant waitress and explanation of the menu items.
I probably would not come back. I am vegetarian and really like good food, but it needs to be prepared well and seasoned well to suit me.
Food and atmosphere was great . Service was a bit slow tho. Would try again
My wife is gluten free and they only offer a penne noodle in gluten free, there should be other choice like spaghetti for gluten free. Other than that a very nice place to dine.
First time at this restaurant, and definitely will not be our last.
Oh ya and our server , Lougie was terrific we never even looked at our menu he took care of us from beginning to the end
Amazing food and dessert. The cocktail could have been in a larger glass for the price, but it was really tasty.
Retirement supper for my wife
Great Italian food and good value. Cannelloni is the best.
Excellent food, great service, waitress was very helpful with the menu, would definitely recommend and go back.
Fantastic restaurant I would consider it my number one
Good, just very loud (not the fault of the restaurant!)
Delicious authentic cuisine. The lobster ravioli was outstanding and the pizza “second only to my homemade pizza” says my husband! I think that he still wants to keep his seat at our dinner table. Haha!
Outstanding food and all around value! Service is excellent. We’d only change one thing, that being the over-priced wine. Regardless, we’ll be back and will take friends as always!
Our meal was very tasty, we used the app to book a table and got seated immediately. We were seated by the window which was nice, very good atmosphere. I had the canneloni , would recommend to anyone. Only con was Our waitress unfortunately was not very friendly, we sat for quite a while before we even got bread and she made a snide comment to us at the end of the night .
Two words: Trust Luigi!
If you want good old fashioned Italian food this place hits the mark. We had a great waiter and great service. It has a “comfort food” vibe but good quality. Worth adding to your list.
Fantastique! Sooo good. If you are looking for great Italian food in Saskatoon, this is the place. The staff are incredible.
It was new year's eve. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. My stepsister and I had a great time!
Almost always have the veal. This time wasn't quite up to par from previous visits.
Eating at Taverna was good. The food was perfectly made... but somehow I couldn’t feel the place, I mean, it’s Italian food but the feeling of the place was just like a regular restaurant. Anyway, the Ravioli was so good... that I definitely want to come back and get some more!
Had a very good meal with my kids (adults) for my daughters birthday. I was just sorry that even though I mentioned the birthday in my reservation and twice to the server- nothing was done to recognize the occasion. Too close to Christmas I guess. Fortunately the food was excellent.
This was our first visit to Taverna and we were not disappointed. Our waiter Simon was fabulous and made many suggestions regarding our meal and wine selection! We essentially just ordered what he told us to and everything that came was amazing! We can’t wait to come again!
We had a wonderful time at Taverna as we come to expect. The Italian food is very authentic and the service is terrific.
Our first time here as we are from out of town. Good wine, good food, good service. We enjoyed the entire experience and would return and will recommend to others.
A group of six of us enjoyed a nice meal and evening at your establishment. I will certainly come again.
Wonderful, lively atmosphere. Service was great. Food was excellent. Highly recommend.
The staff was wonderful and very accommodating of special requests.
Amazing service from Luigi !! Great food as well.
Overall an excellent establishment.
Well worth your dining experience.
Service was extremely friendly and attentive. Food was good!
Always our favorite. Great food. Great service! Like
Always love the meal!
Wish there were more chocolate dessert options.
We had quick service, a delicious meal, and a friendly knowledgeable server!
One of our favourite restaurants, Taverna never disappoints! Three of us shared the Calabrese pizza (I swear I could eat this everyday for the rest of my life and never tire of it, best pizza in Saskatoon) and the arugula and beet salad (fresh and delicious) to start. Each of us had our own pasta main, all of which were delicious and satisfying. Our server Simon was knowledgeable, polite and took care of us in a professional and timely manner.
Food was delicious and fairly authentic! Wine by the glass options could be more and better. Tony was our waiter and he was fab! It was an extremely busy night so service was on the slower side but we didn’t mind at all.
