The History of Tarantos

Taranto's Pizzeria was founded on Super Bowl Sunday in the Winter of 2000.  My father, John, and I realized we had a great family pizza recipe that had been passed down from generation to generation in our Italian family.  We wanted to share our love for good Italian cooking with others.  Even after all of these years, we still make our own fresh dough and special pizza sauce daily.  We received the honor of "best in Midwest", and the "International Pizza Award" in Las Vegas, and even voted "best pizza" at Olentangy Orange High School. 

I grew up in the area and my family made Orange Township our home over 22 years ago.  I have strong ties and love for the Orange community and hope you love my "hometown pizzeria" as much as I do bringing it to you.
