Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

A very nice restaurant with reasonable prices. They offer mostly pizza, so if you are looking for some other kind of food, you may want to choose another restaurant. The pizza was very good, offered in three sizes. The pizza is more thick with lots...and lots of ingredients.More

I often order the daily pizzas form Taverna restaurant. The best way I would describe their pizza is that they put a lot of stuff on the pizza, which is great and their daily pizza deals are great value, however the pizza dough could be...better and quite often the pizzas tend to be greasy. The quality of the pizzas has been quite stable throughout the years. I don't have any experience with any of the other meals that they offer so I can't comment on those. Overall, I think that Taverna's pizzas are great.More

I have been to Taverna many times, but ordered pizzas. On sunday evening i went there again, but this time wanted to try something different. I wanted to order grilled beef with red wine sauce, but it wasnt available. Okay then, i ordered grilled pork...fillet with cheese-cream sauce, over-baked potatoes and roasted vegetables. At that time, there was like 8 other people eating. We waited food over 30 minutes. When i went to ask, how long does it take, they brought the food right away. I am really sorry, that i didnt make a picture, because i was really hungry..But it was a disappoinment. The pig was dry. All the plate was full of mushrooms, wich wasnt mentioned at all ( i dont eat mushrooms and surely didnt want to order it). There was no roasted vegatables. And over baked potatoes was just a regular mashed potatoes. I think the sauce was the best part of the dinner.More

Very good pizza for an ok price (if you like a thicker crust). Location is nice, weekends tend to be busy-ish. Can't recommend the salads - not their forte..

I had a pizza in this restaurant and I was quite disappointed. Firstly they have no options for vegans, so i asked to remove the cheese from the vegetarian pizza, the vegetables on the pizza where low-quality and, I'm not sure, but it tasted like...frozen vegetables. Eventually, they told me that they do not have oil to put on the pizza.More

Nice place in the center of town, next to the tomb house. The dishes are delicious, mainly pizza and pasta. In the summer, open to eat outside.

Shocking that on the menu a meal with both cheese and egg is described as vegan. I know that a number of people have complained to the staff about this, but it still hasn't been changed! Taverna management, please AT LEAST change how you advertise...your food - I'm no expert but pretty surely it's illegal to mislead customers in such a way?!More
