We were there on a birthday dinner, the service was nice and quick. The food was really good, better than some higher end Italian places!

Delicious salads, calamari was pretty tasty. Almost pizzas ordered were delicious I just wouldn't recommend the Capricciosa as it is very bland.

I love this place. The food is always great and the place is small, warm and cozy. The service is always on point and it's always friendly. This is not a pretentious place in least. Authentic Italian eatery that's always great value! The only thing I would ever think of changing is the TV screen, as it takes away from the charm of the place.

Peace,
Frank

Food is kind of bland so it’s an okay restaurant. Not the best and not the worse but there are definitely water places out there.

Amazing authentic Italian food in a cozy exposed red-brick setting. The food is always impeccable and the service is great. We dine here every few weeks and have never been disappointed with anything. The price is also very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food you receive.

Been here many times. Almost the perfect neighbourhood Italian restaurant with such good food and attentive staff. Not a “fancy “place, but as good pizza and pasta as good will find anywhere.

We so enjoyed the food, service and overall experience at Taverniti. The food was fabulous and I can't wait to go back to try the other items on the menu. I am Italian and this place is the kind of feel good we all need. Our server was a ROCKSTAR as well. I have told many friends and of course the rest of my family.

This is our favourite Italian restaurant. Sitting there makes you feel like you’re in Europe again. Our pizzas were delicious and we loved our desserts and cappacino’s too! It’s such a romantic ambiance and the perfect place for a date :)

The gnocchi are pillow soft, the other dishes I enjoy are excellent. A very unique feel, small, cozy, friendly staff, and Rosina has popped out the kitchen on some visits to ask guests how their food is.

Honestly this restaurant has the best Italian food served in a warm, rustic atmosphere. It's cozy and inviting and not very expensive. My table had allergies that the servers were very quick to check with the kitchen, ensuring there would be no issues with what we were ordering. I hope to go back soon, either for a casual dinner or a special occasion.

I wish I spoke Italian. 😀
The weight staff and some of the customers were speaking their beautiful language. The atmosphere, excellent pasta, and great bottle of wine made for an authentic, delicious experience. Grazie.
