Anchoring the west end of the 2nd Street District is Taverna—a casual, upscale Italian bistro with a diverse menu and friendly wait staff. The restaurant serves a variety of classic Italian dishes (try the homemade porcini lasagna), but pays particular attention to contemporary cuisine. Taverna offers fresh seafood and hand-rolled thin crust pizza classica, as well as an impressive array of risotto dishes. Start with the chef's focaccia in rosemary olive oil and end with the Taverna tiramisu. Enjoy your meal as you people-watch on their well-placed patio, or eat indoors for a more elegant atmosphere. The eatery is an ideal downtown stop for a big meal with family or a light antipasti for lunch.
