Tarantino Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
A little bit loud but tolerable and clearly a very popular place - not a free table. Would go again in a heartbeat. The tartufo was amazing! The swordfish was very tasty. My dinner companions seemed pretty happy with their dinners too. Service was prompt, attentive but not overly so.
I went for a late dinner (8.30pm) with my wife. When we arrived the restaurant was busy, but no one was there to seat us. A number of staff ignored us before I managed to get a waiter who went to find someone. We were seated next to a table full of kids playing video games on their cell phones and watching youtube videos which was pretty unpleasant. The food was OK. The salad had an insect crawling in it, but otherwise seemed fresh. I had salmon and my wife had pasta for main course. They tasted fine, but really not much better than you would get in an Olive Garden. I doubt we will return.
Never had a bad meal here. Everyone is friendly and VERY attentive. There seems to be real, concerted communication between all the servers . No stumbling around between themselves and getting in your way. Pretty noisy night but that's not Tarantino's fault.
Tarantinos is owned by the Marchetti family (sp?) who are very experienced, also having Italian restaurants in Stamford and Old Greenwich. The food is excellent, and authentic Italian. I always get their Blue Point oysters, extremely fresh. Love the staff who are all long time employees, well trained and service oriented. You cannot miss with Tarantinos. Noise level can be a bit high when full, but fine.
We are long time customers and Tarantino is 100% consistent in terms of food quality and service. this family owned and family run business is one of the best Italian Restaurants in the area. We like the smaller size, great food and friendliness from the owners and the entire staff. Everyone there really tries. I often get the Osso Buco, my wife loves their pastas and they have great fish dishes....and much more. Enjoy Tarantino.
The food is excellent, dishes are perfectly prepared and attractively plated. The waitstaff are knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. We have been here many times and the only complaint I would have is that if there are people who are noisy & loud seated next to you, quieter conversation is difficult.
Four of us ate early (6:00). The restaurant was great until about 6:45 when the noise level literally became painful. Our conversation ended and we just wanted to leave ASAP. It would have much more enjoyable if they had some sound deadening materials in place. I will not go back there again.
Impecible food. Truly noteworthy and something you very much look forward to having again.
Service - on the other hand - was delightful when you saw them. But being a more attentive, and available more regularly, would be required to bring the service up to the very high level of the food.
All in all, a dining experience I'd be delighted to repeat.
I ordered their special menu "veal with eggplant" and had to return it as soon as it was placed on the table. The presentation wasn't great and when I went to taste it the veal was rubbery and eggplant was mushy and there was no seasoning or flavor on it at all. It almost looked like someone's leftover.
The service and attention was good.
Tarantino's does not disappoint for good , well prepared Italian food. A well balanced menu will suit all tastes and the food is very good. The service is professional and friendly. We went there for my husband's birthday and there happened to be three other birthday patrons celebrating that night as well. The atmosphere was very jovial and festive. We would definitely return, although a reservation is a must.
