I'm tired of hearing about pizza. Pizza, Pizza, Pizza! Let's talk about Italian foods! Yes, I'm talking about Santino's Restaurant in Sherman Oaks. I'm talking about 5 stars 5 diamond food and get in and out for $20 bucks. There is no valet. Yes, there is free parking in the back and on the street! There are no waiters or waitresses. Yes, that means no double the tax for a tip! I just leave a buck or two in the jar at the counter.
Everyone that eats at the restaurant orders and pays for the food at the counter. Then the clerk or night manager brings you the food at the table. Yes, there is inside dining or outside tables on the sidewalk! Nice!
Well, let me talk about the food. Chicken Marsalla, Chicken Picatta, Chicken Alfredo, I can't stop eating this! Now this is five stars and five diamonds with all the trendy vegetables that stop cancers. Yes, I'm talking about broccoli, carrots and cauliflower. Some may say that's not Italian? Then I say tomatoes aren't from Italy. They are from the United States. Let us live and eat! God bless Santino's!
Well, I guess I have to talk about pizza. Yes, I love pizza. Santino's NY Round? I haven't even got there yet! Why go there when Santino's has the Neopolitan Square pizza too! I swallow that whole like a Penguin eats fish! I got to stop typing. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it, and it's 11:30 at night.
This is the GO TO pizza spot!!! I don't go anywhere else anymore.
It's a hole in the wall spot with meter parking and I believe a small lot in the back. We always get the Margherita Pizza and now have expanded to the Pesto Pizza. They always hit the spot. It's a thin crust pizza and doesn't have too much oil that when I'm finished eating, I don't feel heavy and groggy.
The staff is extremely friendly and our order is always ready on time. It's always something I look forward to for a cheat meal :)
