We have been here once before and had a great meal. This last visit was not so great. We had reservations but had to wait ten minutes for a waiter and ten more to get a drink. It didn’t seem that busy but maybe they...More

We had a wonderful date night meal, replete with a wonderful calamari appetizer, followed by a pistachio encrusted steak just melted in your mouth! My wife got an artichoke pizza and was very impressed. Although this is not budget-diner food, the prices were fair, and...More

We were visiting family in Wilmington and they suggested Tarantelli’s, and I’m glad they did!! Service was excellent, we’ll be certain to visit again !!

The restaurant was suggested by friends as a great place for Italian. We were not disappointed. I had the house made fresh pasta and the braciol and the 24 hour sauce 😃 Drink menu is a hit - Try the Bloody Mary

Second recent visit with visiting family this time. Convenient near downtown location, comfortable setting, courteous and prompt service contribute to a nice dining experience.
