Food always fantastic, speaks for itself that theyre always busy. Great atmosphere, lots of chitchat, not necessarily suitable for very young children, my daughter is 8 and it is fine for that age upwards.

My girlfriend and I happened upon Tarantella whilst on a weekend away in the lakes. Managed to get a table despite wanting to eat the same evening and I have to say everything was first rate. The service was attentive and friendly and the food was excellent- some of the best Italian dishes I've ever tasted. My girlfriend had a... More

Regular visits to Cockermouth always include a meal or two at Tarantella. The food is tasty and well cooked, especially the squash ravioli which is delicious, and the service is friendly and efficient.

Visiting the area for the weekend we had booked a table for two the day before as this Italian restaurant had been recommended to us. Arrived early to find we were seated at a terrible table with one of us stuck out in the corridor with all the staff walking past! Plenty of other empty tables but they refused to... More

One of the better meals to be found in this lovely Lake District town, there are super meals always cooked to perfection but do book in advance. Minus points are the background music is always played at an unconfortable level, accept it guys the louder the music the louder your customers will talk, our last visit the waitress could not...

We decided on this restaurant having read reviews on trip advisor and because it was across the road from our hotel on a very wet night. What a good choice, we reserved a table earlier in the day I don't think we would have been able to get one if we hadn't as it was full all night. The food... More

Ate here on a Saturday lunchtime, the Italian food is nice and simple and the service was good. The drinks were quite expensive.

A cold , damp and very wet Tuesday night in Cockermouth. We pondered the merits of going out but decided to accept the soaking in the hope that we would have another good meal. We were not disappointed. I really feel comfortable in this restaurant. The decor is modern , clean and crisp and there was a real warmth when... More

We recently visited tarentella for a family members birthday. We were given a lovely table which enabled us plenty of room as we had 2 highchairs and a car seat. The staff were really friendly and very attentive. We didn't wait long for drinks nor food, the service was great. I had stuffed risotto balls for starter which were really... More
