Always good. Tarantino’s is like eating at a friend’s house who happens to be a chef. I love it when food comes to the table HOT not just warm.

This is not my first trip to Tarantino, and there is a reason for that. The service, the friendly staff, and most of all the wonderful food will keep you coming back for more. You may find it a bit crowded, or a bit loud, but nothing effects their ability to serve you a memorable meal. The ravioli and fresh pasta are special, but everything is good. Make a reservation and visit Tarantino, I'm sure you will enjoy!

There is no finer restaurant in Westport than Tarantino. The food is like food in Italy-seasonal, well prepared and unpretentious. The service is professional, friendly but not cloying. The space is bright and modern and the noise level moderate. This is an extremely reliable and well run restaurant.

This a first class restaurant, serving first class food. The food presentation is spectacular.
Everyone should make a visit for any occasion, (special or otherwise)
as the restaurant group that owns Tarantino's knows what they are doing.

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.

Excellent food and service. We were lingering with a friend over dinner and we were never made to feel rushed or that we weren't welcome to stay. The only (minor) negative was the noise level - it's pretty loud if the dining room is full.

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.
