    Amazing menu selection, staff extremely knowledgeable. Got a delicious pasta dish with mushrooms and chicken and a pizza with arugula, chicken and avocado.

    They have an extensive gluten free menu but they tried to charge me a different price than was on the gluten free menu & then they said it was because its a $2 up-charge from the menu - deceptive! And the service was horrible!

    I went to Taverna pretty excited to be able to get a decent-size gluten-free italian menu and wasn't disappointed. I'm celiac but don't get sick, so I can't speak to cross contamination, but the waiter was knowledgeable enough to help me out with questions. He also waived the two dollar upcharge for the bread (which still isn't listed on the gluten free menu, so in some ways it was the right thing to do). The food tasted delicious, and I'd definitely go back next time I'm in Ausin. Food-wise, rich, tasty, and delicious. The gluten free foccacia seems to be a commonly found gluten free pizza crust that they've customized, but it's very good still and has their own touch to it.

    Went here for lunch yesterday while visiting Austin. They had special bread which was delicious and I ordered a pizza which was also very good (although later that afternoon I didnt feel well so I wonder about contamination - I didnt mark down for this as I'm not 100% it was them but I thought I would note that for future diners). The problem lies in their menu. They have a dedicated GF lunch menu which they clearly need to have re printed. The manager came over to "point a few things out" on the menu before I ordered. Those things were even though the prices were clearly listed on the menu they charge an "upcharge" of $2 more than what the menu says for GF items such as pizza and pasta. I was also tomd that although they have 5 different pasta dishes listed each listing a different noodle, they dont really have those noodles… so your feticcini alfredo would actually be served on their 1 GF pasta option which is a penne. Reprint your menus so they are accurate! Why have a different menu if everything on it is wrong?? I still gave 4 stars because my meal was tasty, as was hubby's non GF pizza.

    Taverna has an excellent gluten free menu! They have gluten free focaccia which is excellent, multiple pastas and pizza and entrees. The wait staff was very knowledgable as well! They have gluten free desserts listed!

    Based on the previous review, I was hesitant about going. I called in advance to inquire regarding shared pasta water and cross contamination. Indeed they do use shared water for wheat and gluten free. However, if you ASK them specifically to boil it separately/cook pizza separately, they will do it.

    im giving benefit of doubt that inside the restaurant is s MUCH better atmodphere. we chose to eat on patio because the weather is beautiful, but the stench of sewage (or whatever it is) is disgusting. The food is ok, but way too pricey. IDK who gave this $$, but to me $17 for spaghetti is $$$.

    NOT A GF place to eat! They cook GF pasta in the same water as wheat pasta, cc is a huge issue w/ pizzas, & they kept pointing to the menu where it says"we're not a dedicated GF facility" This place really needs to be removed from the app. Awesome place to eat if you want to get "glutened". No good!
