    The food is not 4 and a half stars as rated. I got a  carbonara and it wasn't nice at all, it was way over done. The bacon was over cooked and very fatty. I picked most of the bacon out and just took the  carbonara which was really dry. When I finish my meal I was asked how it was I told the server about the  carbonara and he wasn't happy with me, there was no apology for my bad experience. Why ask how your meal was if you're going to react like that very unprofessional. Overall I thought it was over priced for the standard of food we got, I won't be back.

    Absolutely delightful experience at Wallace’s Taverna. From the moment we walked in, the ambiance whisked us away to Italy. The menu offered a wonderful array of classic Italian dishes, each bursting with authentic flavors. But what truly elevated our experience was the impeccable service provided by the waitstaff. Attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable, they made us feel like honored guests. A perfect combination of delicious food and exceptional service. We’ll definitely be returning soon!”

    Wir haben über OpenTable gebucht, da keine direkte Buchung über das Restaurant möglich war. Alles war sehr einfach und unkompliziert zu handhaben über OpenTable. Das Restaurant Wallace‘s Taverna ist zentral gelegen bei der Millenium Bridge und ist mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln leicht zu erreichen. Uns hat es in der Wallace‘s Taverna sehr gut gefallen, das Essen war super - wir hatten Pizza bestellt und diese waren einfach super lecker . Empfehlenswert!!!

    I try to dine here about once a month as it has always been good. Tonight it was really disappointing! Favorite menu items are now gone (beef cheeks and pesto pasta). We were told there’s a new chef and no longer offer these dishes. So we got the lamb (sliced very thin and overcooked) and bolognese (just because you put alot on a plate doesn’t make it good). Too bad…won’t be back…

    I went to Wallace Taverna with some friends last night. We got the caprese salad and I think they must’ve been in a hurry to get it over to us cause half of the salad was missing. It was half a tomate and 3 thin slices of Mozarella. The pesto sauce on top was delicious. The croquettes were nice, maybe a bit as the cheese in the middle was not melted and cold. The mussels had a great flavour but there was hardly any sauce at the bottom, which you would expect. For main course some of us got pizzas, which were delicious. The dough was soft and they tasted good. As for the pasta dishes, they were disappointing to say the least. My seafood pasta was cold and had pieces of shell scattered throughout. The bolognese was pretty basic. Will not be returning.

    I was looking to get the lamb option but it wasn't available. I had ordered the pollo and my partner had the veal ravioli, the portions were small but it was perfect for my partner. I'm glad we only ordered 1 vegan brownie between us because it was so thick. The service was great, it was a little busy for the staff so we ended up waiting around and asking two different staff members for the bill. Overall great experience

    It's really ok. I must say, I'm actually from switzerland, my standards are really high. But I trevel really often, ireland is already my 40th country. So I know restaurant and cultures. In my opinion it was a bad service. We waited like years since they put away the plates. Then I was in hurry because of an event. They took alot of time to get us the receipt and the espresso. The pizza is not good baked and everything fall of. (For me as also an half italien a no go, like this is very bad.) Dough was really good tasting, rest not that fine. The most bad thing was the timing, they looked to us really bad and everytime we were the last one. And I ordered still water and just got refilled rap water. We don't have chlor in our water, so it's difficult to drink. We said please no tap water in advance. After that ee also needed ro pay. It's a pitty. Sad story. Never going back there. I think about to write in my famous travel blog about it.

    A really Italian restaurant, with well prepared and presented dishes. Pasta Amatriciana with artisan-made maccheroni rates 10/10, but pizzas too really good. Tiramisù is "for real". My family and I were there twice in few days with great satisfaction. Personnel kind and educated.

    Lovely food but service was terribly slow. Desert menus were dropped and no one came back to take our orders for 25 minutes. The staff are lovely. Another thing, upstairs when they seat you at the windows, it’s so drafty, make sure you have your coat with you.
