“It's about food and family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

I've been enjoying the outstanding food and friendly family atmosphere at Tarantella's for many many years. Sal or Benny are usually there with a big smile and greeting! It's not like going out to dinner. It's like being invited over to the home of a friend who always goes overboard when you come for dinner. You know to come hungry! The same is true for dinner here.
The regular menu would certainly be sufficient and is jam packed with terrific choices. I've never had a questionable meal no matter what I have chosen. The portions are just ridiculous. Definitely have plenty to take home for another meal. Call it a Tarantella Toofer!
If you enjoy seafood, the Fra Diavlo is just off the hook! The dish looks like it was ordered for the whole table!! The mussels are outstanding.
The specials are always very special. I particularly like the veal chop... not the usual fare at an Italian restaurant, but if they are offering the veal chop, it is a great choice!
Don't forget the gelato. It is really flavorful and adds just the right amount of "sweet" for a perfect ending! Enjoy!!

“Huge portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Portions are very large- large enough to share. Great place to have a large dinner-served family style

“Italian”

If you want to feel like you are eating in Italy then go to this restaurant. food is always delicious and good size portions. Service is good. Most of the time there is a wait on the weekends so be prepared to WAIT.

“Great Place to Eat and Very Reasonable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

One of our family favorite restaurants! The menu has a lot to chose from and the food is delicious. The salad is served family style and the breads are very good. The meals are served on very large plates and more times than not, we have plenty to bring home for leftovers. The owner walks around to each table and checks in on you to see how you are enjoying your meal. Would definitely recommend eating here if you like home cooked Italian food. Bon Appetit!
