    Our server Eva was incredibly kind and accommodating. The drinks were delicious and so was the food! Such large portions, definitely worth the price. We celebrated my birthday and my menu was signed by the team. Lovely brunch with live music! Definitely recommend!!!!

    The kitchen was very accommodating for my husband. He has a shellfish, pork and beef allergy. They offered to cook his meal separately and change out their gloves. This was amazing! Also - the manager came over and let him know that the chips they serve with the guacamole are fried with the same oil as other items. She offered to bring us cucumber chips. OMG - they are sooo good with the guacamole. I recommend getting some with your chips. I have been to the restaurant a few times when I am in town and this was the first time my husband had gone. He will definitely be back. Thank you again for the wonderful meal and hospitality!

    We always love Tarantelli’s. The food is excellent and the service is great too. We start with the meatball appetizer and the charcuterie. Both are excellent and if you’re looking for a lighter dinner for two, that could fit the bill. Every time we go we try new entrees and have never been disappointed. This last time I got the gnocchi scampi and loved it. It’s got a bit of heat but if you like that, then try it. My husband and son got the frutti d’mare and the chicken parm. Both said they were delicious.

Discover Coastal North Carolina

The coastal region of North Carolina is a vacation magnet, and food is big business all along the shoreline. Fresh seafood establishments abound in this area, with many of them catering directly to the visitors as much as the locals. Steakhouses are also very common along the coast for those looking for a great cut prepared just right. The South is barbeque country, and you can add the North Carolina coast to the list, as barbecue smokehouses are plentiful and usually found in a bar-and-grill setting. International food is also a very popular choice along the North Carolina coast. Selections include Thai, German, Indian, and even Peruvian cuisine. Of course, there are many national chain establishments as well as locally owned family restaurants and combination eateries for those wanting something quick.
