Wouldn't go there again

The reviews for this place are very misleading. Went there for lunch with some work friends and the food was not even as good as Olive Garden or California Pizza Kitchen. I had pizza, which I ordered with a thin crust. When the waitress brought it out she said "We were out of thin crust so he made you a thick crust" - no apology, no asking if that was okay with me. The crust was obviously not made fresh.



My friend had lasagna. The waitress told him it was the quickest thing because it was already made. So basically they just microwaved it and brought it out to him. My other friend's pesto pasta was no better and the salad was just a chopped up head of lettuce.



I'm all for family run places, but this place needs to make their food fresh or they'll soon find their family is out business.

Pizza... and childhood memories

Scarantino's - blast from the past! This restaurant reminds me of my favorite childhood pizza parlor but more adult and upscale (i.e. no plastic flatware). (The good thing here is the familiarity and familial nature.) The host and wait staff were extraordinarily friendly and helpful. Had a great pizza and entree. Salad dressing was great. Oh, and the wines - delicious. Definitely one of the more enjoyable dining experiences I've had in a while. The only warning (and I wouldn't call this a con in the slightest) was that the clientele was more ""experienced"" as an early evening crowd (read: early birds). However, the families and couples were filing in as we left.

A new favorite for me!

Best italian in the eastside!

I've been coming to this restaurant since I was 6, and the food has been consistently amazing, just as it was 17 years ago. The place has an old-world italian ambiance, and the service is top-notch. The servers definitely contribute to the homey environment. The eggplant parmigiana, spaghetti marinara and fettuccini alfredo are all to die for.

Food, Service, Ambiance, Prices!

My family and I have been coming to Scarantino's since I found it 24 years ago. It reminded me of the food I grew grew up on in Newark. I moved out of Glendale and I still make the trek because I know that as long as the Scarantino family run the place there will be no dissapointments. My family spends at least 2 or 3 Birthday dinners a year here. Salúte!

Not very good

The place smelled badly, somewhere in between an old musty house and an old-folks home. It was a little dirty, and the food was not very good.
Their bread was nice.
I would recommend going to Two Guys from Italy in Glendale instead.

One Of The Best

The food and the service is one of the best in the Southern California Region. Beside serving excellent authentic italian food it is also one the most inexpensive Italian Restaurant's serving quality food in the country. This family owned eatery serves both soup and salad with your meal that includes one of the Best Crusty Italian Breads you can find in the Southern California Area. There is no equal to their Ministrone Soup. All of their Meat and Fish Entry's include a side of Speghetti. This little jewel of a restaurant which is located on the border of N.E. Los Angeles and Glendale is one of the best values in the country.
