We two couples enjoyed an excellent meal in this restaurant after some disappointments elsewhere. From the good (non-sweetened bread) and aromatic olive oil, to the rich sauce on the ravioli where you could taste the fine shellfish stock base, and the delicate Amazon fish of...More

We enjoyed our dinner at Taranta. It is a cozy place with really good Italian food at very reasonable prices. The servings are large. It is a casual place. We will return soon. We had a lovely dinner.

Taranta is a gem. We had the salmon and the amazon fish, both delicious. Very nice palate of flavors coming together in a perfect balance. Very charming warm dining spaces. A different north end option!

This was our second time to Taranta and it didn't disappoint. Our waiter was Maris and he was wonderful, very knowledgeable about the food on the menu. My husband had the lobster ravioli and I had the orecchiette sausage broccoli, both were fabulous. The atmosphere...More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
