This is a good pizza spot with a nice Italian design. I ordered the chicken bacon ranch pizza. I got the medium and it’s a heavy pie. The crust here is different. It’s like a crispy flakey crust. It was good though. Individual bathrooms.

I have had Taranova's pizza many years ago. This time I joined a friend for lunch, She chose Taranova's. I was pleasantly surprised with the Shrimp Caesar Wrap. It was very reasonably priced and a very nice lunch! There was plenty of shrimp and it...came with fries. I am looking forward to coming here again and bring more friends!More

We’ve been doing takeout from Taranova’s for a number of years. One can also dine in their newly renovated dining area. Food is consistently good. Pizza, sandwiches, paninis, salads, Italian dishes etc. They have a private room in the back, perfect for a small party...(birthday, shower...). Great local restaurant, you won’t be disappointed.More

We saw the menu and figured we would give this place a try, what a mistake. The burger was ok but the pasta was so dry and flavorless it was unbelievable. The best thing was the side salad and we spent alot of money for...this tragedy. We will not give this place another chance.More

Saw all the reviews thought I would try it with the family. The food was ok but could be better. The service really stunk. We had 6 of us and since they knew the tip was already included they didnt refill the drinks or never...came over to us to see if we needed anything. Would not go back again.... In fact we had to raise our hand to get the waitress attention. SadMore

I just ordered for the first time at Taranova's and did so because he was rated 4.5. May be the pizza is good but I ordered spaghetti and meatballs and broccoli bites. I had hoped the broccoli bites were homemade but I'm thinking NOT. They...really were just greasy and heavy. I stopped eating them just because they were there. The marinara sauce is so watery there is no body at all, the meatballs taste like ground beef; I taste no seasoning, no parmsean just beef. Even the "delicious" garlic bread is dry and just baked bread. Again NO seasoning. I had to add so much salt oh and no grated cheese to add to it. $19.00 for a meal that ended up in the trash. I won't be back. I normally don't review but I feel it's a disservice not to and hopefully they will step it up a little on the seasonings and salt.More

We were invited to this pizza joint for a birthday gathering. There were about 20 of us. The evening started out strange when the owner screamed at the guest of honor because myself and one other guest was sitting at an empty counter watching a...basketball game. No reason given, just that he didn't want us there and we should stay in the room provided the party. Strange, but we complied. Two minutes later, the owner came storming out of his kitchen, accusing one of our guests of inappropriately touching a young waitress. He was screaming and dropping F-Bombs in the center of his dining room, IN FRONT OF OTHER GUESTS AND CHILDREN!!!! He ordered us to leave his "---ing restaurant or I will kill you"!! We were flabbergasted, but we packed up and proceeded outside. As we were making alternative plans, he came bursting out of his restaurant with 4 of his "backups", kitchen employees. He lost control again because "I saw you smirking", and started to approach his target. As he passed me, I calmly suggested that, as a business owner, he think twice about "What it looks like you are about to do". He turned to me, ran up to me, got up in my face and threatened to kill me as well!! I put my arms at my side and waited to see what he would do. He then turned around and ran towards his original target and HEAD-BUTTED HIM AND PUSHED HIM TO THE GROUND!!!! At that point, one of his employees pulled him off and they went back into the restaurant. For the record, I don't know the accused very well. He swears that he did nothing more than pat the young lady on her upper back as a thank you for service. Weather or not he committed the act, there are other less violent and legal ways to handle the situation. Luckily for the owner, neither the accused or I have pressed charges, preferring to put it in our past and not frequent his joint!! Truth is, his food is"run of the mill" at best and, although I live close by, we never consider this place for either eat-in or delivery. HOWEVER, IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO TAKE YOUR KIDS AND ENJOY THE POSSIBILITY OF THE OWNER DROPPING F-BOMBS IN THEIR PRESENCE, THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!!!!!!!!More

This was an after-the-movie dining decision, and it wasn't a bad choice. The restaurant is very clean and the wait staff are outstanding. I had Italian wedding soup and chicken parmigiana. I would also say the dinner rolls were outstanding, and that means I'll try...the pizza next time. Overall, it was a good dining experience and a good value for the money. I will definitely stop here again.More

At a friend's suggestion we tried this restaurant. Another guest wrote that it was a Pizza place with an expanded menu. It was maybe a little more than that. Everything was Adequate, Menu, Service, Food--but the prices were Moderate, that some may describe as cheap....With your entree you get both Salad and Soup. This seat-yourself restaurant offers Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. The are "Specials" and desserts offered. I'm not sure that I would drive a lengthy distance to get here, but if I was in this neighborhood I would not, not come here. Please accept this left-handed compliment as being sincere, as it is eating, but certainly not dining. For me a bigger plus is that it is a BYOB..More
