The plates are so big they barely fit on the table. Literally! Come hungry and leave stuffed. Plus, you’ll have plenty left over to enjoy for dinner or lunch the next day.

There are so many delicious Italian restaurants in NJ and this South Jersey restaurant is one of my favorites. Those giant plates I was talking about, they’re filled with the most delicious Italian cuisine.

I was there this past weekend and I can’t wait to go back. Everything on the menu sounded amazing, which made my decision very difficult.

I ended up choosing the Pollo con Broccoli, boneless chicken breast with broccoli sautéed with garlic, sundried tomato, olive oil, and white wine. Delicious!

The garlic rolls were yummy too! 

You can also get pizza. 

Tarantella Ristorante is located in Medford, NJ at 128 Rt. 70. If you're not from the area it’s worth the trip.

Another reason I love this restaurant, you feel like family the moment you walk in. The servers are so friendly, it feels like you’ve known each other for a long, long time.  Even if it’s your first time there, you still get that feeling.

If you’re looking for a great Italian restaurant to go this weekend, Tarantella Ristorante is the perfect spot. Don't forget to come hungry. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed!
