Taverna delivers gourmet Italian food amidst an elegant downtown atmosphere perfect for outdoor dining and people watching. Inside, Taverna takes modern European decor and bumps it up a couple notches. The pizza and pastas are excellent, but the pizza al gorgonzola and the homemade lasagna rustica regularly receive the most praise. Come to enjoy happy hour or their much raved about weekend brunch. 

Happy Hour is Sunday - Friday 4 p.m. - 7 p.m. Their popular Saturday and Sunday Brunch offers $1.00 mimosas and frozen bellinis from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. with the purchase of an entree.

The wait can be a bit of a bear, especially during the weekend brunch, so come early and beat the crowds. Your best bet for parking is in the underground lot underneath City Hall.
