What I like about Scarantino's is the unpretentious atmosphere and food that gives it that homey home cooked feel. It's not often anymore that you get a full meal of soup, salad, bread, butter and your entrée. On this night I had the Chicken Valdostano and it was quite good. Of course, by the time it arrived I was already... More

Place was recommended by the hotel and few of the staff. Well, was a bit disappointing given the reviews. Decor was way outdated and the food was just average. Service was good and people friendly, but a dingy atmosphere didn't raise the bar at all.

Not fine dinning but a good family place to gather for a celebration. We were there for a birthday with a big group. The food was good as was the service. The group was big and this place is small so it was a bit cozy. Not a place that blew my mind but certainly not bad.

We happened upon this place because it was walking distance from our motel. The ambiance was pretty good with checkered tablecloths and Italian music playing. I had their Chicken Marsala, which was better than average, but not exceptional. Their red sauce was pretty decent, although they plopped the pasta with red sauce right on the same plate with the marsala... More

Can't rate it 5, but we liked it. Good prices. The place was popular. We were there on a Thursday night, and people were coming and going, and I could see lots of take out too. It's not the best Italian I've had, but we enjoyed it.

Just passing thru, and our hotel recommended Scarantino's for dinner. Went early, 5:45 pm, and by 6:15 on a Thursday night the entire restaurant was packed ..and lots of fake-out patrons as well. No wonder ... It is fabulous!

I noticed this place when driving past it a few times. I recently moved to Glendale and wanted to try it out. I'm originally from New Jersey and I'm Italian. I went there last Thursday night for dinner with 3 other people from New Jersey. The place was full and the atmosphere was very much like an Italian restaurant on... More

This family restaurant has been around for over 40 years (and we have been partaking for that long). The Minestrone soup is thick, chock full of vegetables and the taste we love. The fare is standard Italian comfort food, and we love the comfort.

We were in town for the Rose Parade and wanted someplace close to our motel for dinner. We went to Scarantino's and had a really great pizza at a very reasonable price. Went back the following night, New Year's Eve, and had an exceptional dinner. My wife had the calamari filet which was outstanding and I had veal rolls stuffed... More

this place was down the street from where I was staying. So I walked down to have dinner. The meal was good. Nothing really stood out. The bread basket had butter instead of olive oil and vinegar. I did enjoy the portobello mushroom appetizer, good flavor. Main included soup and small salad. Pasta and sauce were tasty. The decor leans... More
