  • Try the Yuca Gnocchi W Lamb Ragu - OMG! This dish is so good! Must have!
  • #9 - IWalked Boston's Top 10 Italian Restaurants. Describe their food as Southern Italian cuisine with Peruvian blend. Opened in 2000, Taranta is one of few certified green restaurants in world.<LINK>
  • At his North End Peruvian-Italian, chef Jose Duarte is known to garnish many plates with something rather unique: QR codes.
  • Try the causa appetizer. Not at all what you would expect in a crab cake.... Amazing
  • Interesting mix but It didn't convinced me compared neither to an italian or a peruvian one.
  • The pork chop!! ... get it.
  • The lamb ragu gnocchi was delicious! Great wine selection for very reasonable prices. Our entire party was pleased with the meal and great service. Would highly recommend!
  • Everything was delicious, start with "causa rellena"; I had the paiche for my entree it was amazing the fish was so tender and well seasoned, loved it!
  • If you're super hungry get the Costoleta Di Maiale Con Canna Di Zucchero E Rocoto. I finished it, but barely. This is the best pork chop you'll have in your life.
  • Great wines. Delicious food. Amazing service.
  • The Yuca Gnocchi is amazing! This Italian-Peruvian joint has an outstanding menu and is eco-friendly!
  • Highly recommend the paiche. Described as better than Chilean sea bass, and I agree! It was great.
  • portion sizes are large and food is well cooked, but the menu isn't particularly exciting. a solid and reliable choice, esp given the neighborhood, but there's more exciting meals to be had in Boston.
  • Peru meets Italy at this North End hotspot. Try the daily preparation of the paiche, a huge fish from the Amazon. [Eater 38 Member]
