Casually kitschy Italian-American food, cafeteria-style. Fun puppet-themed ambiance.
Try the lasagna w/ meat sauce.
This place is amazing, such great Italian food. In a quaint atmosphere. I love coming here with the family.
Pastas, olive oils, specialty items, pizza dough for homemade pizzas, excellent mozzarella and Italian sausage. Also, pastries, cookies, tiramisu, and gelato. Oh, and the aroma here is incredible.
Offbeat L.A. tip: opened 1971. Bring your own wine for an inexpensive corkage fee.
Plan on taking home leftovers!
Italian deli great food and market
The ravioli is good, but the tortellini is the best
Any of the lasagna are what's up!!
Gelato is almost as good as Italy
Super cheap and amazingly tasty.
It's so fast!
Meatballs are great!
I drive here from afar just because the food is the greatest. My fav is the Monte Carlo Sandwich and Lasagne.
Rude staff, decent food
Great Italian deli pastrami and salads
Horrible. Avoid this place.
Pinocchio's is awesome
If you get a sandwich (any 2 salads come with) you might want to choose half a sandwich...I was told the whole was so big, many often can't finish them.
I finally found a place in the L.A. area that has cannolis!
The food and the gelatos are wonderful!
Cafeteria style place with good food. The cannolis are a must!
You can get two flavors per cup of gelato if you're like me and can't decide! I love the Caffe d'oro gelato!
Amazing little market/deli. Eggplant parm and sweet treats!
So delicious!!!! Great place ;)
Unique way to serve...unique to LA anyway. Tables and trays, like a nice school cafeteria.
Good food & cheap prices (not the other way around)
Good food at a reasonable price.
The vegetarian lasagna is the best. All the flavors come together. Yum!
Always fresh and delicious. One of my absolute new favorites in LA! Great catering for our studio sessions today too.
Amazing food. Some of the best Italian I've ever had.
Get the SMALL sandwich unless you have the appetite of a horse. For under $8, you can get a small sandwich with two salads and have leftovers for the next day! I'm a fan of the meatball sub.
The Greek Salad is very good!
The lasagna is the size of my head. Tasty!
Best garlic bread I've ever had.
The pasta is bomb just ask for light sauce!!
Butter pecan gelato :)
Pasta with chicken parm, try to get something else
I was first brought here when I was a little kid 30ish years ago, and I've been a regular ever since. Marinated mushrooms are the best, and it's a tossup between meat lasagna or spaghetti and sausage!
My favorite place! I love the pizza, and lasagna :D
Will not go back worker took a woman flirting with him over waiting customers with numbers waiting cause as he said she was cute
Great Italian deli.
Just ate here for the first time in 5 years and have remembered why I haven't returned. Maybe the pizza is good.
The store/deli is great and has pretty much everything Italian you'd need. Be sure to sign up for their mailer to get advance notice of sales.
Very Very Tasty !!!!!
If school cafeteria Spaghetti is what you want (watery, tasteless, huge portions), then this is the place for you.
