    I love the fact that they always have Osso Bucco on the menu and it's good too. Tried a veal dish, just okay. The waiter was great, friendly and the service quick. Family place. Noisy yes, not for quiet date night.

    We were a group of 7 people, 2 visiting from Ky and the rest live in the area. We happened on this place by chance and we were very glad we did. This is some of the best Italian food we have had in South Florida. Very good portions at a reasonable price as well. I also noticed that they have whole wheat pasta and gluten free pasta in additional to traditional pasta dishes. The chicken & mushroom dish I had was wonderful. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will definitely be back in the future.

    When I chose this place it was a last minute thing and b the pictures I was not very impressed, but the reviews on the food where good, so I told my husband let's give it a try. There where 6 of us, we all ordered different plates to make sure we had a variety and that we could try different things. They where alll amazing. NOt a fancy place but the food and the service were amazing!!! My husband the Veal Saltimboca huge portion and the veal couldn't be more tender. I had the corvina and it was delicious. Our firends had the filet mignon and the Salmon both huge portions and delicious. All I have to say is their chef is their secret weapon. AMAZING FOOD!! Definetly we found a GEM.

    I moved out of the area about 9 years ago and since I came back I kept reminding myself that I had to eat here again. It definitely was worth it. The food was great and the service even better. Our waiter (JR) was helpful, friendly and very professional. I recommend you check this place out.

    First time using open table. Took us right on time. Service was great and the food was delicious. The portions were large and the staff very friendly and accommidating. I will definitely return. As mentioned, it is a bit noisy, but not unbearable. We were a party of 7 and we heard everyone just fine.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/11/2014
    Place is great, the only thing I didn't like is that they don't pay too much attention to reservations. The girl at the desk didn't even worry about asking my name when I told her I had a reservation. I had to wait like everybody else to be seated. Other than that , service and food were good, a bit pricey for what it is but it's ok!

    Both the food and service were excellent. Everything was fresh and well seasoned. My appetizer was a caprese salad. The mozzarella had so much flavor there was no need to add oil or salt. My meal was parpedelle with mushrooms --- fresh and delicious. Next time I'm in Weston I will go again.

We really enjoyed the eggplant parm. Our friends thought the veal piccata was excellent. Definitely try it!

    "Forget about it" Waiter came back to our table four time to write down everyone's order. Then the instead of getting credit using Open Table, they canceled the reservation. :( Had to call back the next day and talk to the manager. BTW, the mixed sauteed veggies were cold, returned them three times. Under cooked

    Weston is lucky to have such a gem. Fit for everyone from serious restaurant goers to families, Tarantella has a very extensive menu. Rarely can you find a restaurant that works as well for a date night as one to bring the kids to. But located next to plenty of interesting shops and a great place to take a walk before or after your meal.

    The ambiance, food and service were excellent! I haven't been to Tarantella in a very long time and was pleasantly surprised to find that the menu had changed considerably. The food was much better than when I last ate there, over 4 years ago and the service was very good. We took a friend who was out of town visiting (I am a local in Weston) and he really enjoyed it as well. Thank you to Tarantella for a much improved experience and for being such an outstanding neighborhood gem!

    Quite an extensive menu with all types of Italian food and specialties. Service is friendly, efficient and helpful. Our waiter Alex did an outstanding job. When he was serving other tables, other staff members were readily available to assist. Food was very good with large portions. The Pollo Mediteraneo was topped with two large shrimp and was outstanding. A great Weston neighborhood restaurant in a nice setting.

    I don't usually right reviews and an extremely picky when it comes to Italian food. The food and atmosphere forced me to comment. The energy of this place was great, the atmosphere felt personal, and the owner talked to everyone and made the conversion feel personal. I would definitely go again, and make this my must-go-to Italian restaurant. Only negative: someone dropped a fork and two waiters walked right over it. One actually kicked it out of his way. And nobody came over to see if we needed another fork (we ended up getting one from another table ourselves).
