Can taverna mean a rustic, brick, underground kitchen or dining area?

  • What isn't clear in the dictionary definition you're linking to?

  • @DaG Somewhat: "a volte di lusso, arredati in stile rustico", but luxurious and rustic seem mutually exclusive, but I suppose "hole in the wall" places can have very good food.

    'Arredato in stile rustico' doesn't necessarily mean 'not expensive, poor', it is a furnishing style, it means 'country-style furnishing', and can also be expensive or 'country -chic'. Commented Mar 24, 2023 at 6:05

    OP, check the definition of rustico in the same dictionary: as you'll see, and @BakerStreet explains, it's (also) a particular style, not necessarily a degree of richness or refinement.
