Should know better than to go out to eat on Valentine's Day, when restaurants are all about quantity over quality. Even so, this place was a total disappointment for a $70 fixed price menu. I had to spit out the beef because it was just un-chewable. The lobster ravioli was cold, tasteless, and chewy. Too bad.

More Italian than Peruvian, but the food was excellent. Try the Pisco Sour cocktail along with the antipasto and the causas. The porkchop is a must!

Hidden Gem amongst the slew of Italian places in the North End. This italian peruvian fusion place is divine. The flavors in every dish are unbelievable, even the fresh salads. The service as well was stellar, we sat in the nice second floor room, arrived early but still were seated right away and the staff was attentive throughout our whole meal. I don't even usually like ravioli or gnoochi but loved both of these dishes here. They serve us some interesting, fresh cocktails and juices. One note, everything seems to contain meat here but the staff was so accommodating, I don't think it would be a problem for vegetarians

Disappointing for the price you pay. Olive oil for dipping bread was way too bitter - cheap bulk olive oil. Papardelle ai funghi porcini with : home-made pasta (good), but was not properly prepared - layers stuck together (bad). Funghi porcini portion was not generous with other types of mushroom mixed-in. I guess one pays for being a tourist.

Our third time here... and if anything, the food just keeps getting better. An emphasis on fresh, organic ingredients combined with the fusion of Peruvian and Italian cuisines makes this a very special place. They've even manage to pull together a primarily organic list of very interesting wines. Highly recommended. And after the fourth time, all of the above is still accurate.

TARANTA FEELS MUCH LIKE A TRATTORIA IN ITALY. THE FOOD IS AUTHENTIC ITALIAN CUISINE WITH THE CHEF'S OWN TWIST. THE HOUSE WINES ARE GOOD ENOUGH THAT I NEVER ORDER A BOTTLE. IT'S A COZY PLACE, BUT IT SEATS MANY WITH 2-LEVEL SEATING. THE FIRST LEVEL HAS AN OPEN KITCHEN.
