Made our reservation 20 minutes before arrival, host greeted us w/out issue. We all loved Tarantella and would go back if in the area again. All employee interaction excellent; server timing great (he didn't bug us too much, was there when needed, offered good suggestions). I ordered something not on the menu without problem. They let us enjoy our meal at our own pace. When in Weston, go to Tarantella!

We certainly loved this restaurant. When we were seated, the waiter noticed several children at the next table being quite loud. He gave us a wink and took us outside to dine. It was quiet, perfect and romantic.

The food was excellent! Authentic Italian which is what was expected.

I highly recommend this place....

For starters the on line menu prices are much lower than what’s listed on The actual menu at the restaurant. For example. Veal as you like it (parm, picata, etc) is listed at $18 on line. On the menu it’s $24. Just an example of the treachery. The place was dingy and pretty empty for a Saturday night at 8pm. Less than half full. I know why. The prices are high and the food is pedestrian at best. Not horrible but nothing I couldn’t whip up at home we split an order of clams oreganata and they were the tiniest clams. Mostly used for sauce not baked clams. Very cheap. Very simple food. The pizza dough was not proofed properly so the crust “broke” rather than folded. The pizza was tasteless and only had a small amount of cheese in the center I guess to skimp on costs. My wife’s salmon was just okay. A baked portion covered in parsley, yawn. The chairs are horrible. Wooden ladder back with slightly padded seats. I have a bad back and felt like I was being tortured. I couldn’t wait to get the check and get out. Very common food. More like a pizza place with poor pizza than a dining experience. Very disappointing. I won’t be back for certain.

Tarantella was a recommendation by our friends and we thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance, food and service. The osso bucco was out of this world! Service was excellent, attentive servers, but not hovering.

Tarantella's has been a mainstay on our local dining list for years. Even when it was located in the Bonaventure area! The service is what you would find at a 5 star white glove restaurant. My friend and I had martinis that had the full shots of alcohol, meaning they were not watered down like most restaurants. The fish special, Branzino, was delicious!

This is the 3rd time we have tried Tarantella. My daughter and her 2 friends couldn't ear the pizza because it was so bad. The citrus shrimp risotto.......the shrimp we cooked from a frozen package, risotto was under cooked not a good dish at all. My husband liked his bow tie pasta dish. Wow will not be going back.

Everything was very tasty and service was excellent. We had fish which was fresh and well prepared. Only small issue is that it is on the noisy side due to acoustics.

Well Priced Casual Dining

This was our second time dining there- a good location in Weston for meeting friends coming from both Miami and West Palm. The menu is extensive and everyone was happy with their meals. However, the restaurant was packed and the noise level, contrary to our first visit when we had a nice relaxing dinner, made it impossible to hear anyone not sitting next to you- consequently we were motivated to not linger and ended up sitting outside to finish our conversation.

Everything was fine until the waitress provide the last bill. We gave her cash and a credit card. She did not deduct all the cash from the bill, in order to put the rest on the credit card. It was a mess, after, we believe she corrected , have to check the credit card history.

Am not a fan of the new menu although John said that you will be printing one with larger letters. Also, there were some old favorites that were not on the menu and we had to ask John if they were available. Bring back our old menu. Tried and true.

We go to this restaurant almost every time we visit Weston. Italian food, pasta and seafood are very good.
We had a problem with the reservation we made days before through Open Table. When we arrived the attendant wrote in his list our name as if there was no previous reservation. After complaining several times, he assigned a table as soon as he could. We understand that it was Valentines Day, but the way they managed the situation was not correct.

Good Valentines Day restaurant. Food very good. Pizza was surprisingly very goood. Other people at my table had the Gnocchi special which looked yummy with a vodka sauce, mussells and pasta and chicken Parmesan. Good solid Italian food. It was crowded in Valentines Day. The food was worth the wait.
