Service was excellent. Being Italian myself and a pretty good cook I find it difficult to find restaurants have Italian food that live up to the standards I grew up with. The food at Tarantino’s definitely exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend

A restaurant we often go to but sadly on this night two of our steaks were charred – one we had to send back for being over cooked and the service was subpar. We sat there several times with empty water glasses.

I will 100% recommend this place, and have already started to! Ambiance was great, and service was very attentive, but they allowed us to take our time and enjoy ourselves (which is what we like - we were not rushed one bit!). Half price bottles of wine on tuesdays is a bonus! The lighting and music were spot-on, and I'm excited to try it again (especially when the outdoor seating opens up). My boyfriend and I both loved this place :) Thumbs up!

We had a really wonderful time last night celebrating my parents Anniversary and ours upcoming. Our waitress (Brooke I believe?) was lovely and incredibly fun to interact with. All of the recommendations she provided were taken and as a treat, we did not skip out on the dessert. :)

Meal recs: Beet salad, pork chop (very good), fusilli, and the bread pudding. Wine selections are also great...so just get the bottle!

Tuesday’s are half off bottles of wine. You can also do half orders of pasta dishes- a great way to try multiple items!

Overall was very excited about this place, but ended up a bit disappointed by the experience. The meal started well, we had some Pasta and Salad to share as a table of 6 of us. This came fairly quick after ordering. Then there was about a 45 minute delay from that course until the entrees came. This would have been fine if the food was great, fresh, and hot. That said, the food came out and was not hot for 5/6 of the table. It was almost as though they forgot to put something in and had it sitting on a head lamp. The plate was hot, but food was lukewarm and the skin on my Wife's fish as intended was not crispy, etc. Overall was disappointed and unfortunately will not make it back. I see other folks have had great experiences, so hope this was just a one off.

First time diners. Great ambiance. Seated immediately. Excellent service. Large old-school Italian-American portions. Pastas were great. Caesar salad only fair. Sent back fried calamari because it was very chewy/ rubbery. Replaced with muscles which were terrific. Nice wine list. Would definitely return.

We had a great dinner, thanks to our server Julie. When faced with deciding between too many appealing pasta options, she advised that we could get 1/2 orders of each, so we ended up with a little "tasting menu" of our own! Along with a well-recommended bottle of red zinfandel, it was a wonderful meal.

We had not been to Tarrantino's for several years but was always a favorite when visiting our daughter when she lived in Chicago and it did not disappoint! The food, the cocktails, the service was the best! The lobster ravioli was amazing as were the crab cakes! We were so happy we chose to dine there on our recent visit to Chicago.

My wife and I visited there on a cold Chicago Saturday evening. We were greeted promptly and shown to our table. The wait staff was diligent, but not intrusive.

My wife had the Caesar salad and risotto special, which she enjoyed. I had the fried calamari appetizer and the osso bouco, both were great. My only fault was the mashed potatoes were a little thin, but that was only a minor point.

Overall a very good place for a nice dinner.

A great Lincoln Park neighborhood restaurant, perfect for all year round dining but summer is best with the sidewalk dining option. Wine selection is good and menu selections are varied so there’s something for everyone I’m sure.
Service is always great and food is always delicious. My favorites are the Farfalle pasta with spinach and smoked chicken, the cowboy steak and the rack of lamb...Delicious!

my experience was very rushed!! We sat down to have a nice meal,ordered drinks and a appetizer. In 3 minutes all was out. I told the waitress that we were not in a rush and to slow down. She said no problem.(the restaurant was 3/4 full with nobody waiting). She then asked if we would like to order the main course. I responded that we would but please spread it out over time. I emphasized we were not in a rush. the 2nd course to split a pasta dish was out in 5 minutes. We still hadn't finished our 2 appetizers. then the main course came about 5 minutes later. the meal was ruined by then. We didn't even order a 2nd drink. the food was ok but crammed so fast. Also, the oso buco was a very small serving(but tasty). We were out in 50 minutes!! The waitress said that everyone was leaving to see the Mayweather Fight. We were leaving because they rushed us out. VERY DISAPPOINTING!
