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

A long time staple in Clark. The food had always been consistent. The wait staff is friendly. They serve pizza as well as Italian food. They have a bar and a good selection of beer and wine.

I was in the mood for a local Italian place that offered pizza and beer, and this was a good find. Waitress and bar service, as well as takeout, and competent friendly staff. I had a salad and calzone, which were good, and the other food looked good. Reasonable prices, $27 for salad, calzone and 2 beers. We will be... More

We visit Tarantellas about 2 to 3 times each month. The food is always fresh and prepared perfectly. The specials are just that: "special" and they never kill you with the prices for the specials or their regular meals. Most meals from the menu come in medium and large sizes and believe me - the medium is quite large in... More
