For my entree, I went with the classic chicken parmesan. It was spectacular. Served with a side of crunchy, yet soft potatoes and savory broccoli, this dish was done perfectly right. It took approximately 10 minutes for the chicken parmesan to come; the chicken was big, but manageable, so I was able to finish it. The chicken’s golden undertone, brown base, marinara sauce and fresh mozzarella were a perfect blend. The dish was crispy and tasty. Although I could eat this dish at least three days a week, it was large and dense which made me very full.
Considering we were all pretty full, my parents and I neglected to order dessert. However based on prior knowledge, I would highly recommend the homemade ricotta cheesecake; its sweetness is truly a thing of beauty. It’s rich and flavorful and the perfect way to top off a phenomenal dinner.
Overall, my experience at Tarantino Restaurant and Bar was positive. The service was fast, the waiter was pleasant and the staff attentive. The only negative I took away was the restaurant was a bit packed, so at times it became a bit too loud. Although the food was quality, it was a bit expensive as Tarantino is on the fancier side of the scale. The stuffed artichoke was $13, the gnocchi amounted to $25, the shrimp cocktail costed $3 each and the chicken parmesan was $24. Although the prices are a bit high, you are certainly getting your bang for your buck as the portions are fairly large and the quality of taste is remarkable. Furthermore, if you’re willing to spend a bit more than usual and are looking for a classic Italian meal, Tarantino Restaurant and Bar is the place to be.
