Food and service was great, it’s a smaller restaurant so the noise level was a little high with everyone trying to have conversations.
Horrible food, no flavour on the Shrimp risotto. It was dry, no creamy and not even arborio rice. The kid pasta was very dry too. We told the server, but they didn’t take from the check, even when both plates were almost uneaten.
My impression is that they don’t care since it is a neighbor restaurant where their customers are secure, and if you don’t like the food it’s “your problem”.
Manager never came to talk with us.
We love Tarantino’s. It is our neighborhood go to.
Fathers Day Eve
Some of our dishes were very good, some average. Slowish service on a Friday night.
Great as always! Will continue coming again and again.
Order the muscles, it was outstanding!
Birthday. The one order was wrong, but they took it back quickly and fixed it. Comped the cake for the birthday which was nice.
Third visit here and we always enjoy ourselves. Our waitress was attentive but did not hover over the table, food was good (my wife’s risotto was outstanding), overall a pleasant experience.
I’m definitely going back, I used to go and stopped because the food was fine but now it’s great. I had the black pasta with shrimp and mussels can’t wait to go back and have it again, just the right amount of spice.
Great ambiance, food, wine and relaxed. Unfortunately, the waitress was rather curt and pushy for our order. It was Mother's Day so I doubt she wanted to be there. We did fine.
Tarantino's is such a wonderful neighborhood restaurant and they never fail to make us feel welcome, well taken care of and valued. The food is fantastic (the hearts of palm salad is my go-to starter.)
My wife and I have been regulars at Tarantino’s for a long time. The food is always excellent, the presentation outstanding and the staff always friendly and helpful. Tarantino’s is our go to restaurant. Their patio in the summer is relaxing and quiet. Highly recommend.
One of the best restaurants I’ve been to in Lincoln Park. It’s a hidden gem - I’ve never heard anyone talk about it, but went because it’s two blocks from where I live. Great drink menu - a good mix of beer, wine, craft cocktails. One of my favorite parts of a nice dinner are the salad and these didn’t disappoint - we had the arugula salad and beet salad, which were both large portions. For entrees, we had the pork chop and chicken parmesan, both were excellent. To top it off, we had Profiteroles, which were amazing. My only regret about this place is that we didn’t try it sooner!
Pink & Johnny are terrific hosts! Friendly staff.. especially Berto!
I used to dine at Tarantino’s when I lived in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, about 10 years ago. Now that I live in Milwaukee, I dine here any time I’m back in the city!! It was fantastic 10 years ago and it’s still fantastic!!
Quality is down
We had a great dinner on a Friday evening- the food was outstanding and service terrific. We are neighborhood regulars, but we had suburban guests and we all had a wonderful time.
Halibut and salmon were delicious- hmmmm and salads were split and very good . Our favorite pasta, the rigatoni was also on the table as we couldn’t resist. Just a top rate dinner in Lincoln Park, Good Friday night ambiance!!!
Food was great...our server Bella was even better!!
Been coming here for years. Beautiful neighborhood Italian place, great for families/kids as well as dates. Excellent Italian favorites, as well as updates/Italian-inspired American dishes. You cannot go wrong at Tarantino's.
Our waitress was not very attentive, very slow. The calamari was served in a sauce that was tasteless and by the time the plate got brought out, the calamari was soggy from the sauce. Food was not spectacular.
The eggplant and pasta were so good.
As always, very nice evening. Everything was yummy. I had to ask for bread to eat with my mussels/broth, but no biggie.
First time there. We will deffinelty be back. 4 of us went for dinner and we all loved our meals.
Love the food, and the wine. Authentic Italian. Delicious
Excellent food and service. Great atmosphere. One of my favorite Italian restaurants.
The staff and food was great . The ambience was inviting and cozy. Thank you all for providing a great space to celebrate the love of my life! God bless.
Great dinner to end the week and decompress.
Great place to go with friends or date that you want to talk to. Noise level is perfect.
Always good, consistent food w/ a changing menu. The wait and bar service is always friendly and knowledgeable. A great place to book last minute or plan a special event. Great mix of Italian regional cuisines w/ other fresh options in fish etc
A longtime favorite that never disappoints
New Year’s Eve
Slow to clean the tables or check back to see how things were. Very loud inside.
Loved the food and service. Great neighborhood spot
Our server, Bella, was excellent. The food and drinks to include desert were fabulous.
Not great - fish was underdone, ravioli was Luke warm and chicken parm marginal.
Great place for small or large groups. Both the food and service are excellent.
The Fusilli is amazing! And enough food for two meals!
Tarantino's and John's personal attention to detail never disappoint! His 2018 Holiday decorations are his best yet!
