I love the local atmosphere. Food was great and all of the staff was very friendly. Everything we ate was very good and my daughter said the crab legs were the best she had ever eaten. Get there early!

They have the best crawfish out of all the places we have tried, delicious shrinp po-boys, and friendly staff. It is smaller than most places but don't let the look fool you. We come at least once a day when we are in town and always leave full and satisfied!

We had an outstanding lunch at Taranto's. we tried the shrimp and catfish and both were outstanding. The service was excellent. It is an out-of-the-way place that is a favorite of locals. Not a place to be missed on your next trip to Biloxi!! Don't forget to try the buffalo shrimp.

Great little restaurant in the middle of no where. Definitely worth the drive from Biloxi (its actually located in the little town of wool market) The gumbo is very good, crawfish and oyster po'boys are also very good

not for everybody for its down home and out of the way feel, but this place was packed at lunchtime on a weekday afternoon. we were looking specifically for boiled crawfish, and came with good seasoning and a great price. loved the feel, loved the food, it's obviously catering to the local crowd that wants good seafood without embellished atmosphere.

After reading the Glowing reports about this DUMP my wife and I made the 2.5 hr trip west to sample their fare, be forewarned this place has very little in the way of parking + the place is very small. That being because of the small packed dining room we decided to do what a lot of other were doing... More

You'll need your GPS to get here if you aren't from this neck of the woods, but it is worth it if your looking for a traditional Gulf Coast seafood fry up (although there is grilled, too.) Po Boys, seafood on a bun , seafood dinners - this is the real (Gulf Coast) McCoy packed with the locals and lucky... More

During crawfish season, eat the crawfish. Enjoy the spicy corn on the cob. If you're from out of town, make the effort to eat here. but don't dress up. Its a small seafood house, and if its your first time eating crawfish, its gonna get messy. You will regret missing out on eating here.

This was our first time to eat at Taranto's. The boiled crawfish was delicious. The service great! We went there strictly for the crawfish, later we want to try some of the other dishes. We plan to go back before crawfish season is over. Glad we found this restaurant.
