We had a most delicious dinner Saturday evening, sitting at the bar, with Terri serving us. She is a true gem and always remembers my husband's drink order because he orders using an old WC Fields quote. We had the scallops and risotto - perfectly grilled and creamy and the veal piccata - tender with fresh pasta. We can never chose 3 of the mini cannolis, so we take one of each home with us for later. We absolutely love Tarantelli's and never are disappointed. Thank you to the Chef, Pastry Chef and Terri for another wonderful evening! Joy and Mitch
Excellent food and atmosphere!!! We had a table for two on the patio and it was great!!
Tarantelli's is absolutely amazing. We went there for the first time a couple of weeks ago and decided to immediately go back.
The ambience is wonderful and the food is even better! Make sure to book your reservation in advance though because the seating gets snatched up quickly.
We sat outside on a lovely evening. Our server was wonderful and we really enjoyed the food. The portions are very large so we look forward to enjoying our food again.
Food and service were terrific. We sat outside on a perfect October evening. Portions were large and the food was so good we took the leftovers home for lunch the next day.
Wonderful, made our Birthday boy very happy,we will be back.
Overall everything was great! We both had the specials and loved them!
If you would a special dinner of fine food with efficient service yo will like Tarantelli’s. Worth spending a little more to get better food and good service.
We sat at the bar, since it was raining out side, but the food was amazing, atmosphere was hip, and the staff was wonderful.
This is the best Italian food in Wilmington, and it has become one of my favorite restaurants!
Our first visit to downtown Wilmington. We come from NY and I wish this venue was near us! It’s amazing. Every aspect and detail. The food is unbelievable, the bread amazing. You can tell they get the ingredients they use from particular places. I have to rave about each meal, from the bruschetta to the garlic knots, to the veal - chicken - scallop dishes. It’s a must go to! The service is top notch !
Sy was an awesome server. Food was impeccable. Only complaint would have been the noise level. Even with the loud atmosphere.. would 10/10 go back.
Anniversary, great meal
We love Italian food and decided to try Tarantelli’s. So impressed with the service from start to finish. Not to mention how delicious the food was. Oh and we took the zeppoli’s to go. They were so amazing good!!!
I had been there before, but I brought some really good friends there as a thank you for some, much needed help during my surgery recovery. I wanted to bring them to someplace special and I felt that Tarantelli's would be the place to go. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious!!!
We really enjoyed our meal and overall experience here. Service was great, atmosphere was authentic and food was delicious!
We had a delicious meal at Tarantelli's. The ambiance was quite nice and the service was excellent. We highly recommend the restaurant.
Best outside dining in Wilmington. Scallops were outstanding
Fantastic food from a strong menu with many tempting options. Outdoor seating is lovely. Like everywhere this fall, they need more staff so service was not as attentive as in earlier years, but our server was cheerful and got everything right. We will go back, especially on a nice evening when we are inclined towards a slow dinner.
Restaurant is beautiful. Food was amazing Large portions. Waiter was fantastic. Cordial and knowledge of menu. Head Hostess was a bit curt at the door and seemed annoyed that we had an open table rsv. We will definitely be back for the positive reasons noted.
In for wife’s birthday, special restaurant for a special meal. Excellent service from start to finish.
Always amazing food and service and the owner came over to greet us, highly recommend for any occasion
Excellent food at not exorbitant prices. We let them know that we had to make a curtain time and they worked hard to get us out in time without making us feel rushed. We'll be back!
My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary. We arrived earlier than our reservation, so we were invited to sit at the bar for a drink. Very relaxing atmosphere. After a short wait, were were seated at our table outdoors. EVERYTHING we had to eat was delicious! Appetizer, main course, dessert! Staff is great too. This was our first time at Tarantelli's...it will not be our last! Highly recommend!
Always enjoy a meal here! The specials are always delicious, homemade pasta is so delicious, and portions are large! The bread is also wonderful!
Everything was excellent as always. We sat at the high top tables where the room and bar was fairly busy, but the noise level was very comfortable for a conversation between my wife and I. We shared a Caesar salad, which was more than enough for two. Both pasta dishes were excellent, brought to the table very hot. We were not rushed. Good selection of wine and excellent after dinner coffee. We have been to this restaurant several times over the past year and we are always very happy with service, food and price. We highly recommend and will continue to enjoy meals at Taramtelli’s.
We had several off the menu modifications to make items vegetarian and gluten free and the execution was excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meal.
We ate on the veranda and had a lovely dinner. Both the appetizer and entree portions were surprising large and we took home leftovers. We tried the flight of cannoli for dessert - get all four flavors!
Our server was a younger dude with tattoos and he killed it. Awesome service all around. Had an amazing dinner and an amazing time.
We were not "allowed" to be seated due to the fact there was a staff shortage. We explained that we could get our own drinks at the bar then go to our table. NO! I ordered the clams with pappardelle pasta which had a lot of clams, that was good but really not much flavor. My husband ordered the braciole. He was sawing away at it when he decided to give up. We are very familar with this dish which should be braised at very low heat for a long time making it extremely tender. He sent it back and mentioned to the server that is was very tough. She replied, "It's been cooking for 6 hours". REALLY, I guess she didn't what the dish is supposed to be like. If it had been cooking for that long, either the heat was way too high OR maybe it was heated up in a convection oven at the last minute instead of being freshly prepared 6 hours ago! We would definitely not return... too many other great restaurants in Wilmington!
First time visiting Tarantellis. Food was excellent. Service was good. Easy parking nearby. Will definitely return.
As always - just wonderful !
Great Italian. Large portions, so consult your server to prevent over ordering!
Always a first choice for business meals and great for people visiting.
Josh our waiter was awesome. Friendly and let us stay to enjoy our wine after our meal. He made it a perfect evening.
The pasta special was fantastic!!!
Will absolutely can again!!

We dined outdoors and the city sounds were meinimal. You won't be disappointed if you choose to dine at Tarantelli's .
What a great evening! Before entering, the outside water features were elegant and relaxing. Seating was ok and the server could not have been more attentative. The meal was excellent and the bread was yummy. Overall, the experience was a 10 and I was a first time customer. Thank you for providing such an outstanding venue. Hope to return soon.
So good!! The spaghetti made with whiskey in the Parmesan block was unreal. Extremely impressed with this great Italian restaurant in downtown Wilmington…and I live in San Francisco. Highly recommend.
Tarantelli’s never disappoints. Consistently good food on every visit. Love the outside dining.
It was our first time dining there the experience was great I would definitely go back
