Established in 1967, Taberna Etrusca is an Italian restaurant in the classic trattoria style, with textured white walls, tiled floors and an open-beamed ceiling. Decorative Tuscany-style tiles and Ferrari posters decorate the walls. A range of antipasti and pasta dishes are served, each with the very best authentic Mediterranean flavours. A short passage by the side of the restaurant leads to a courtyard to the rear which catches the sun during the summer and is very popular for al fresco dining.
