    This was our first visit to Tarantelli's, and it was above and beyond our expectations! Our waiter, Gabriel, was the absolute BEST. He was very knowledgeable about the menu, along with what wine to recommend for our entree. We had 2 appetizers - the filet bruschetta and the brussels sprouts. Both were delicious, but the filet bruschetta was OUTSTANDING......it is a must to try when you dine there. We were practically full after the apps and delicious bread they bring out, but we split the eggplant parm entree, which was probably the best I've had anywhere in town, and I usually order it anytime I eat Italian. It was our anniversary, so they brought us a complimentary cannoli for dessert, which was very tasty. We ate in the dining area inside, and the ambience was lovely. We can't wait to go back!

    Upon seating, host immediately noticed volume of music was too loud and attempted to correct. Waitress also noticed and made efforts to correct, which they did as my 86 year old Dads hearing aids were overwhelmed. I appreciated the attentiveness without needing to ask. Service was impeccable, food-delicious, a great night out! Highly recommend the ginger coconut ice cream! Unbelievable! Chicken wings had an amazing sprinkle of something super tasty, swordfish was perfection. We always love Seabird!

    We have dined at Ceviche's numerous times over the years and it has always been enjoyable. Fun, lively, casual setting with interesting dishes. Service was excellent. We had paella this time and it was very good. The rice was a little bit gummy, but the seafood was copious and truly outstanding - shrimp, scallops, crab claws, clams, mahi mahi, etc. The coconut shrimp is great and the guacamole was delicious. Highly recommend a visit to this place.
