"We spent News Years eve with some friends at Taranta. It was an excellent experience overall. The food was outstanding and the service was terrific. Given it was New Year's Eve, and the restaurant full, our service was excellent."

"Service was top-notch. Food was spectacular, but menu was limited. Chicken dish and crab/lobster raviolis were phenomenal. Nice atmosphere, perfect for date night. First floor was very crowded to sit in, but overall very satisfied with the food, service, and prices."

"My best friend and I used to live in the North End and with so many options we never made it to Taranta. We got the chance to go beck this last Saturday night and it was worth the wait! Our waitress was amazing giving us all her favorites - which turned into my new favorites! We started with the mussels which are done in this sauce that I honestly wanted to drink from the bowl - it was amazing! Then we had the gnocchi to share and ended with the pock chop - which was large enough to share and was delicious! I would recommend this place for couples, as it is small and intimate and the dishes are great to share!"

"We hadn't been to the restaurant in quite a few years, and were disappointed. Took visitirs from New Zealand, told the restaurant and the waiter that it was a birthday of one of the guests, but they did nothing special. The food was hit and miss - a grilled shrimp appetizer was good, as was a trout main dish. But the rest of the food - the lobster ravioli, the chicken - were very ordinary. When we told the waiter we were disappointed with the ravioli, he cheerfully said that he would never order something with a cream sauce! Wow! Talk about unimpressive!"

"The menu was somewhat limited, and while some menu items did have a Peruvian flair, the menu did not offer many Peruvian-inspired items. The highlight of the dinner was the causa appetizer, which was authentically served and substituted crab meat for shredded chicken. The drink menu was also limited and the cocktails were overpriced, even for Boston. Also, our waiter was not very attentive and did not ask if we wanted something else from the bar until long after our first drinks were gone. Lastly, we were seated next to the hostess near the main entrance, where a gust of cold wind would blow in every time someone entered the restaurant. For the cost and North End location, I expected a better dining experience, so I will not be returning."

"Usually when four of us go to dinner, one of us "wins" when we compare each other's selections. But on this evening every single plate was amazingly and equally delicious. Really interesting to combine Peruvian and Southern Italian cuisines. The chef is an exceptional artist. Just as examples, we really loved the pasta dish cooked in parchment paper, and the double pork chop seasoned to perfection throughout, but even the caprese salad was an especially fine interpretation of the traditional appetizer.
The staff made us feel like special guests even though the dining room was busy. It seemed as though they were enjoying the evening as much as we were.
Also -- try the wine that's being served by the glass. As wonderful as something we would have chosen.
We have already recommended Taranta to several new people and we will be back with friends as soon as we can schedule it."
