Good dinner

We stopped for a business dinner one night. We didn't have reservations but they fit us in anyway. We ordered a bottle of wine and it was quite good. Each of us ordered a different pasta dish and they were all very good.

My partner received food poisoning from a risotto based meal and when confronted with this, the manager was completely dismissive and unapologetic, even going so far as to accuse me of lying. I was told that the menu had been changed the day before and that food poisoning was an impossibility. I have since heard of several other parties who... More

We decided to treat ourselves to a nice meal out whilst staying in Cockermouth. This Italian restaurant is wonderful!! The service is spot-on. The staff are friendly, approachable, helpful & efficient. Everything on the menu was extremely tempting. Everything which came out of the kitchen looked delicious! I chose the tuna salad. It was so scrumptious that I had the... More

We booked a meal here, as we had family over from the North East. This was the first time we had eaten here, despite living locally, and we were not disappointed. The restaurant was very busy, always a good sign, and we were quickly and politely shown to our table. Drinks were served promptly, and orders were taken. Between us... More

We went as part of a large group, and the servers took care of us with no problems. Very quick on drinks, and all our food came out together. Good prices. Plenty of food - serving sizes were almost too large. Easy to find, being on the Main St.

I visited Tarantella on a Tuesday night as during a week away in the Lake District with my husband and two friends. We fancied a change from Lakeland pub grub and having consulted the font of knowledge that is Trip Advisor, took the short trip from Dean to Cockermouth and the well-recommended Tarantella. It was fairly busy for a weekday... More
