Went with friends for dinner. The food and service was great. I ordered the shrimp platter but the waitress was kind enough to tell me how big it was so I could order less which was more than enough. Gumbo was very good. Enjoyed the decor.

Tried this place for the first time last weekend. Ordered oyster poboy, shrimp basket and seafood platter. All of these were good quality and great tasting! Price are very reasonable. The only down was it was hard to find. Thank goodness for navigational devices.

We had lunch yesterday at Taranto's and found both the food and service to be excellent! We particularly enjoyed the gumbo.......equal to or better than any we have eaten in New Orleans. Seafood was very fresh, delicately breaded and piping hot when served so we new it was cooked when ordered rather than ahead. ALL of the waitresses check on... More

After a visit with family, my husband, sister and I stopped in at Taranto's for dinner. Hubby had the oyster po boy with fries and enjoyed it. My sister and I had the crab dressing po boys and thought they were excellent, full of crabmeat. We shared fries and onion rings, and while the fries were good, the onion rings... More

Salad was fresh and crisp. Fried crawfish and remoulade sauce was delicious! Crawfish and Shrimp was amazing. Shrimp basket with side was delicious, cheap, and 1 1/2 dozen shrimp. My husband had the ribeye and loved it. My son had the kid's fish plate. He really liked it. Will be back! Especially during crawfish season!

Read a review from TripAdvisor and it lived up to expectations. The service was very attentive and the food was delicious. The bread pudding was yummy.

My wife and I, both of whom are foodies, came to this restaurant twice during our trip to the Gulf Coast. There are myriad restaurants from which to choose, so the fact that we were repeat customers in the span of a week makes a real statement. The place is clean and no frills and the staff couldn't be more... More

This Restuarant exudes the flavor, charm and personality of its owner...Gindy. We felt so welcomed. The food was outstanding and reasonably priced. From the outside, we thought - interesting. The inside is about 3 great things...1. Wonderful hospitality 2. Food - yum, yum. 3. Smiles and love. Yes, this place takes about 15 minutes to drive from say, Beau Rivage...but... More

There are it enough words to describe Taranto's. The best I can say OMGosh. Yummy Yummy. Their appetizers are wonderful especially the fried pickles and gumbo/soups/bisque Obviously, the crawfish are great. But...don't cut yourself short. The seafood platter is enough for two adults to share. The dinners are enough for lunch the next day. The restaurant is always clean and... More
