Ambiance is sensual and warm. The food is always consistently very good to great. Atmosphere is warm, friendly and romantic. My wife and I have spent 5 or 6 New Year's Eves there. Everyone we have taken there for dinner raves about the food and always wants to eat there when they are back in town or in the hood.... More

Called at the last minute on a Saturday and they had a 2 person high-top available. I was surprised that most of the entree's were over $20. I had the halibut special which was delicious but a bit over cooked. No bread was brought to the table, which was fine with me as I was not eating carbs. I mentioned... More

We organized a birthday dinner for six on a Friday night. Service was good, food was very good (especially the corn fried oysters.) We also had the mussels, papardelle, butternut squash ravioli, farfalle and rigatoni. All great. Dinner for six including two bottles of chardonnay $255

4 of us had dinner at Tarantino's this past week and we had reservations at 7:30, but did not get to the restaurant until 7:45 (I called to let them they know we were running late). They held our table, and we were seated immediately. Our server (a European lady) appeared to be in a rush, and was professional, but... More

Had the best salmon dish ever! It literally melted in my mouth. Came with roasted potatoes and cooked spinach. It was excellent. Eaten in this restaurant before and it has been consistently good.

Tarantino's is a beautifully decorated, intimate Italian restaurant in the Lincoln Park neighborhood. The food is reliably good with interesting specials and friendly service. A great spot for the weekend but also a terrific mid-week treat. Also fun to sit at the bar before dinner.

Parking on the street was hit or miss for 2+blocks. This neighborhood of Lincoln Park is pleasant. Atmosphere & service were top. Not loud inside.Bright & open inside, it was to chilly for dining outside? I did think the wood chairs were going to be uncomfortable but they were not. They did have booths but not surrounding both sides. We... More

Ate here with a group recently and also some time ago. Both times my reaction was mixed. The pizzas and the appetizers seem to be the best offerings here. The pastas were OK. Service is good and wines by the bottle are not overly marked up. The premises are casual attractive and the outdoor seating (weather permitting) is very pleasant.... More

If you find yourself in the Lincoln Park section of Chicago and in need of a very good local restaurant, you cannot go wrong with Tarantino's! The food (mostly Italian if one has to apply a label) is excellent (with many specials being offered a), the wine selection is well above average, the service is quite good and the price... More
