I've eaten at Taverna many times over the years. But I was just here again with good friends on a beautiful fall evening, and we sat on the patio. The weather and the wine combined for a perfect night. We had gnocchi, mushroom risotto, and...More

This is a popular restaurant and it isn't surprising why when you take your first bite! Brunch with a Mimosa or Bloody Mary is the best! Servers are attentive. Outside dining is preferable when the weather permits. We love the atmosphere and the food.

This is a favorite pre-theater place to eat that provides consistently good food and service. We normally choose one of the risotto dishes - last night's Risotto Con Burrata was yummy. The toppings on Taverna Focaccia were also tasty.

I do not know, I haven't seen any dogs when I was there. However, that area of Dallas is very dog friendly. I would call and ask them.
