Want to have a group dinner? Or an open air dinner? This restaurant has a delicious line up of meals especially if you love pizza, meat and fish. We went in a group of 20, so i do not know what it looks like to dine here privately. But the restaurant has a blend of locals and foreigners.

I have been here numerous times and have always enjoyed my time there.

The food is generally good and service is moderate. They need to work on the limited wine list as they do not have much to offer.

The pizza and pastas are great and it's highly recommended. The mains are ok and appetizers are to skip as the portions are quite huge.

I always order the same kind of pizza (Romana) when I go to La Taverna and it never disappoints! I love the thin crust pizza dough, perfect distribution of cheese and toppings. It's light but not too light. It can be shared with another person or you can finish the entire plate depending on how hungry you are.
The ambiance is beautiful, you can sit by the pool and order the food from there. It's especially nice at night when the lights are reflecting on the water. Service is also good. I haven't tried any other food from the menu so I can't really say. However, if you're looking a good thin crust pizza- give this place a go!
p.s if you like it spicy, they have a spicy oil which is flaming hot! Do try but use sparingly or you burn your throat lol

Visited the restaurant yesterday with my husband and our two kids. We had the seafood soup, bruschetta, the Lasagna al Forno, a pizza and the ricotta and spinach ravioli. Everything was delicious and served piping hot! No dish let us down. And the portions were VERY generous. I can't say enough about the food. The pizza we were served wasn't exactly how we had ordered it, but a fresh one was made before we even suggested it. That is very unusual in Lagos. 5 stars for food, two thumbs up for service. We'll definitely be back!

Sitting outside by the pool in the evening is blissful. I enjoy this restaurant as a corporate hangout. It has great food and reasonable service - and prices are OK. The setting is just great. The issue now is to keep the consistency. I noticed recently that availability of products is again becoming a problem - and this reflects badly on management. No mozzarella cheese today. No Riesling white wine. This is when it starts going down. So a note to the team on ground. Love the place. Get the purchasing going again.
