5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Targa last night and really enjoyed our experience. We will be back - too many great choices on the menu not to.

“Little pillows of puff!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

If you are a fan of gnocchi then don't miss a dinner at Targa. Beautiful, soft pillows of pasta that melt in your mouth. I also had the soft shell crab for entree. Substantial serving with amazing fennel sauce. A hit!

We were disappointed with our wine choice. We are fans of Chianti Classico but the one on Targa's menu for $70 was not to our liking. Shame tasted metallic.

Our waitress, can't remember her name was fantastic. Great service, she went out if her way to make the entire dinner a great experience. Thank you!!!

“Great Food and Wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I recently spent a week in Byron and dined at Targa twice, once solo and then had to take a friend back there. Both times the food was great, with fresh ingredients.
The wine list is also nice and cheese was perfect to end the meal.
The service was very attentive and knowledgable about food and wine.
