Atmosphere: 4.0/5.0 - Their "pizza barn" in Pickerington is a unique, neat, local vibe. Enjoyed it.
Price: 3.5/5.0 - Above our normal $10-ish range, but worth it if you're going for some "upper crust" pizza.
Location: 4.0/5.0 - A small jaunt off 70 on 256/Hill Rd; easy to get to.
Service: 3.5/5.0 - Pretty standard, decent service.
Taste: 8.0/10 - Bravo, Taranto's. Enjoyed the pizza, tastes like quality. Great job on the pepperoni.
Bottom Line: 23.0/30 is the final score for Taranto's. Their pizza is pretty solid. They have at least one other location that is near Polaris. But, we reccodmend the unique atmosphere of their pizza barn in Pickerington. Their specialty pizzas were good, but the Meat Lovers was good in that it wasn't too salty like many of these pizzas are. They also did a really good standard pepperoni. Service was decent; the location is easy to get to. The price, however, is a tad above our normal $10-ish range, but we didn't feel cheated out of our money. A good, more thin crust style place.
Yesterday, it was Philly vs. Lions in Philadelphia. Through this crazy, insane, and instant classic game, the Eagles won 34-20.

A couple of tweets caputred this sad moment last night after the Buckeye's 24-34 loss against Michigan State. So this is what a snapped 24-game win streak feels like.
