What's a dont-miss dish at Taranta?

Headed to Taranta for a work dinner. Looking for *THE* don't-miss dish there. Any solid, mouthwatering, lick-the-plate-clean recommendations?

  1. If you read the prior reviews, you'll notice that a lot of people (not all) enjoy the cassava gnocchi with spicy green ragu. That would be my pick.

      Have to say, had it recently and was disappointed. Heavy, sticky. A pasta dish also had poorly cooked pasta. Maybe hit it on a bad night, but don't feel like I'll be back.

      1. I went a couple of weeks ago and had the appetizer of shrimp and broccoli rabe over crostini-it was incredible. Their mussels were also good. I had the trout as a main course-didnt love it (not enough greens, too much starch) but it had a really great flavor.

        1. If they still offer pasta with sea urchin and bottarga, order it. It's really one of my all time favorite pasta dishes i've had over the years.

            Great dish but sadly I think it's been off the menu for a while.

            I'm a fan of the gnocchi.
