Customer service was amazing. The staff went above and beyond to make sure I had a good experience.

I ordered the classic bruschette and the penne Rosa. Both good dishes with lots of flavours.

If you looking for a real Italian restaurant , please try this one out!

Food and service was great! The mushroom and truffle tagliatelle was amazing!! Would definitely order that again. The patio is on college street, covered from any rain, and feels cozy and charming because it’s in the heart of little Italy.

My roots are from the same area of southern Italy as the owners of Trattoria Taverniti, and I can say with certainty that the food was excellent and authentic.

Trattoria Taverniti never disappoints. If you’re looking for authentic Italian cuisine, this is the place! All the pasta is homemade (thanks to Nonna Rosina) and the wait staff take such good care of you. Truly a warm, welcoming, familiar (especially if you’re Italian) experience to dine here. I always recommend!

Pasta was good and service was excellent. My friend was vegan and she couldn’t eat any entrees but the server was quite considerate and gave her some more breads with olives. She asked us what they can do to improve their menu to be more vegan friendly.

Our waitress was not the friendliest she forgot our order. Then had to get the other waitress to come check on us to see if we needed anything else.

It’s covid and I understand that but you could be more polite. I still tipped 20% all though she definitely didn’t deserve it, and she rolled her eyes at me I don’t know why bc I didn’t even say one word to her. The other blonde girl was amazing always asked if we needed anything came with everything right away.

Service was good and we were able to get a table very quickly. The patio is very cute and tucked away at the back of the restaurant. There’s a lot of room between the tables.

Unfortunately, the food was a bit disappointing. The carbonara was overly salty and had a fairly dry sauce. The sorrento gnocchi was just alright.

Authentic home-made Italian food in a quaint setting. Amazing value for the quality of food you're getting. Best pizza I've had in a while, crispy crust that wasn't too thin with the right amount of toppings (Pizza Domenica). Mushroom ravioli, tiramisu, and homemade gelato were also delicious. I will most definitely be coming back or ordering pizza for takeout.

I don't really want you crowding this place because it's not so big and I want to be able to get a table whenever I feel like going there, which is often. Still, in fairness to you and in support of a wonderful little restaurant, I must say that Taverniti is a delightful spot that succeeds in all aspects. Go there! (But just save a spot for me, in case.)

Authentic Italian food, the pasta was made in house and you could tell in the taste. The pizza is napolitano so thin base with a thicker crust. Very good value for the money!
