Taberna Restaurant Review

: Though the white wood-frame house resembles a private residence, a spotlighted sign above the entrance says otherwise. The interior holds two tastefully appointed dining rooms decorated in cream hues, with natural stained wood fixtures, tables and chairs. The menu, a medley of Italian and Spanish flavors with Mediterranean accents, features sautéed Prince Edward mussels with fresh tomatoes, garlic, parsley, white wine and extra virgin olive oil, and Spanish wood-roasted piquillo peppers stuffed with a Valencia salad of chicken, shrimp, walnuts and saffron aïoli in a balsamic reduction. Among entrées is a seafood risotto with shrimp, bay scallops, squid, mussels and cockles. For a romantic feast for two, order the paella classic Valenciana with chicken, Spanish sausage and seafood atop saffron cebolla rice. The 12-inch Taberna pies with toppings like wild mushrooms, Serrano ham and manchego cheese are a specialty and consistent favorite. The wine list features Spanish regional varietals from Toro and Navarra among others, and selections from Portugal, Italy and California.
