Stopped at Tarantella's after working at Newark Airport on the recommendation of an FAA worker. Really glad we did. Sat at the bar and the bartender was excellent. Friendly and very helpful, recommending best dinners. We ordered a calamari appetizer which was excellent. For dinner we ordered the Penne Bolognese and the Chicken Giambotta. Both were huge quantities and delicious.... More

I live out of the area but come here to take my in-laws out for dinner once every few months. We go to Tarantellas. This place never disappoints - the consistency each time is great. The salad is the best we've had anywhere - their house dressing makes it. We've gotten wraps, sandwiches, traditional Italian dishes and all are very... More

Very good veal parmigiana at a very good price. Consistently good, and better than the more expensive Italian restaurants in the area. The nightly specials are a plus as well. The seafood fradiablo is excellent as well; under 24 bucks which includes lobster tail, mussels, clams and scallops. Add a house special side salad for under $2.00 and you are... More

Excellent pasta choices and ample portions. Always good service. Be ready to wait a little on Friday and Saturday. Right off of the parkway so if passing through worth the stop.

We went to Tarantella;s for lunch. They have a lunch menu or you can order from the regular menu. I ordered soup and half a sandwich which was very good and reasonably priced. Service was very slow and waitress seemed to forget that we had ordered coffee.

I love this Italian restaurant because of the delicious food that they prepare every day. I would especially recommend the mozzarella salad for two or more people. Whether you order a dinner or a pizza you will be not be disappointed. The seating area is spacious and beautiful.

Friendly staff just for starters. The place was clean, family friendly, and a very pleasant atmosphere. As we were being seated my wife heard a customer tell a waitress "this is the best dish I've eaten here". Curious I asked the waitress to tell us what that customer was eating. She came back and said Chicken Carmelo so we ordered... More
