Success! Thanks for posting your review of Taranta. You’ve done the world some good today.

A really great experience in the North End

I first discovered Taranta by word of mouth through my girlfriend. I decided to splurge and take my boyfriend there, when he came to visit me for the weekend. We went on a random Thursday night. The restaurant itself was rustic and romantic and really created ""the mood"". The menu looked amazing and after much debate, we decided on the mussels to start. Words cannot describe how amazing these mussels were......... view more

Best place for client dinner with awesome food and service

I was looking for a restaurant for my boss ( we are in Charlotte, NC) to take clients while in Boston. Often times I find this to be a challenge since reviews are often not true. I went out on a wing when I picked Taranta for my boss to take her clients too. When I arrived at work the following morning I received an email from my boss who was still in Boston raving about the food, the presentation of the food, th... view more

Great fusion of Italian and Peruvian cucina. A must in Bosotn!

This small italo-peruvian restaurant located in the heart of the North End knows exaclty what its doing. The cozy atmosphere is perfect . There is a undisputable knowledge of both food styles that are blended with perfect synergy. Added to this, the service was superb. Our waiter was very good with wine and food suggestions. Even thou the wine list is very small they have some good choices in a wide range of prices. ... view more

Great food and customer service

I chose to take my girlfriend here in celebration of her birthday and was very pleased. We arrived 15 minutes before our scheduled reservation time but were seated promptly anyways. It's worth noting that this was a Wednesday night around 8 pm. Our waitress was eager and informative when it came to answering any questions we had on the menu, drinks, etc. She gave us ample time to decide on our food, explained some of... view more

Great food!

I went here with a few of my friends a couple of weeks ago and the food was absolutely amazing. The portions were huge but I can't complain because everything was so delicious. Our waiter was a little too eccentric for my taste but he provided excellent service despite how crowded it was. We arrived a little before our reservation so we went to LuLu's Bake Shoppe nearby (which I highly recommend!). The host was also ... view more

be prepared to mill your own pepper

I, too, joined Goldfly for what we had hoped to be a fabulous dinner in the North End. As aforementioned, the service was slow, unfriendly, and unprofessional. If you prefer to avoid a night filled with negativity, I suggest not asking for bread, which will only result in a 2 min. lecture on when it will be received, ( only AFTER the order has been placed). In addition, one should not dare to request salt and pepp... view more

Horrible Service, Cold Food, Overpriced

My girlfriends planned a girls night out last Saturday night, and we decided to try Taranta because of its great reviews. We arrived and the host told us to walk up to the 3rd floor, he did not show us the way (rude!). The seating was cramped, and the waitress was slammed--one waitress for the whole floor! She took too long to come over to us, and when we asked for bread after waiting too long, she snapped at us and ... view more

Worst Service

My family and I went to Tarnata this past Sat. night and had an awful experience. We had made a reservation for 7:30pm and even called ahead to make sure they have valet services and they said they personally do not but we could use Bricco's which is across the street. When we pulled up at Bricco the valet seemed annoyed and said they do not do valet for Tarnata. He valeted the car anyway. We checked in with the ... view more

WAyyyyyy expensive, but very much worth the wait in lines anytime after 4 pm. Any pasta dish you order is gauranteed to be fully consumed.

Great Apps

I took my wife to Taranta for her birthday at the end of August. I read all these glowing reviews so we decided to give it a try as we both love fusion food. We went in the middle of the week and early (around 6) so the place was realtively empty. We were seated right away and was greeted by our waitress rigth away. She was great. She was so helpful and informative about the food. We ordered mussels and the spe... view more
