We arrived at 7:45pm for a reservation at 8:00 pm and we told the wait was 20-25 mins. However we were seated at 7:55 pm which was great.
Unfortunately, Our food took almost an hour to arrive. Our server apologized . She explained that a party of 20 had walked in. Maybe it was because we were no longer hungry but by that time none of us were very impressed with our meal. No one finished. We asked for the check and with no desire to take our leftovers home, called it a night...

Enjoyed dinner here on Valentine’s Day 2018 but eat here occasionally. The food is always freshly prepared and outstanding. I often order a dish that is no longer on their menu but they make it for me every time. Very accommodating!

I have not been to this restaurant for around 10 years. Thought I would give it another try. It was New Year's Eve at 7pm. The restaurant was fairly busy got more so as time went on. Excellent waitress. We started with capresese can't really go wrong. Tomatoes could have been juicier. My husband ordered linguine and clams again fairly basic. Had good flavor. I decided on something different. I love risotto, have eaten it at different places and make it myself so I know what it should be like. It was risotto with fennel, shrimp, dates (did not get these as I don't like them and not sure why they would be in a risotto) and caramalized walnuts which they forgot to put on the dish. This dish was $32.00 and should have gone back. However, the flavor was good but the risotto was watery instead of being creamy. The fennel was not caramelized or roasted, I think they boiled it. I must have put in a cup of Parmesan to soak up the liquid. The shrimp however were delicious. Shame that an Italian restaurant either doesn't take the time or does not know how to make a risotto. Might try again 10 years from now. There are at least 5 Italian restaurants in Weston. They need to up their game to compete.

This is a good Italian restaurant that was open on Christmas Day. We made dinner reservations and were seated promptly. The noise level was high due to some families with crying babies that could not be avoided. The service was very good and food was tasty and plentiful. Good value for money. I will not hesitate to eat there again. Friendly atmosphere and neighborhood feel. I recommend it.

Menu was considerably downsized over time. Food is good but not great so in my view it is difficult to justify paying those prices.

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.
