Food was ZoK but very noisy because there was a retirement party. We could not ever hear each other over the noise. This kind of ruined the evening

The lasagne was outstanding. The eggplant parmesan was outstanding. I did not hear a peep out of the ones who ordered the risotto special or the seafood soup special - they were literally in heaven! We love this restaurant and have frequently dined here since the first week it opened. We understand people have an 'off' day here and there - so I am hoping this must have been the case - our waitress was very short with us, making the dining experience not as nice as usual. We had to send a dinner back for the first time ever (they changed the recipe and it was not what we were expecting, nor was it as good as remembered), which they promptly removed from our final bill. The food and service are exceptional enough that we will definitely go back!

Both my wife and I enjoyed our meals. The service was good and friendly, the price was reasonable, and the portion size was satisfying (it's a personal gripe of mine when portion sizes are tiny in the name of "gourmet").

Food was ok. People were very nice. Atmosphere was odd. Smelled heavily like disinfectant. We were there right at 5 on a Saturday. Main dining room didn’t have a lot of light and had two TVs distractingly playing a lot of poor quality slides that varied between family pictures, famous quotes and bad quality album covers and rock pics.

I absolutely love this little treasure. Everything is outstanding especially, the food. Sometimes the service can be slightly off. My server was newer and wasn't sure about what I was asking. But, in e end he delivered. However, we receivex our appetizer (truffle fries yuuuum) before we got our drinks, which were fountain drinks. My favorite is the NY Steak raviolis, I added burrata to the top. My husband loved the paparedele.

Great food! Fresh and authentic wonderful tasting and good presentation. The Bruschetta Rustic was fantastic, as was the pumpkin ravioli! Friendly and good service, but needed to check in more frequently. The bus boys brought us someone else’s dinner, so not as on the ball as they should have been, but all was forgiven as the food was wonderful for everyone in our large party of 10. We would for sure repeat, for the food and value.

We first received stale focaccia bread. Our waiter took our order and everyone around us who arrived after us was served 5 minutes before us. Then after the kitchen staff had delivered our food our waiter didn’t return for 10 minutes to offer cheese or more drinks. The Chicken Parmesan which is usually very good was very bland this time. We’re very disappointed because this used to be our favorite Italian restaurant. I’m not sure if we will ever return. BTW What is going on with the video slide show? It used to be old Italian movie posters and now it’s random pictures of Prince, Hal Holbrook, OJ Simpson...what is going on?!??

I am always looking for great Italian food in LA and I’ve found it. We started with the special bruschetta which was delicious, followed by tagliatelle al ragu and the spaghetti aglio e olio. Both were as good as any we’ve ever had. We will definitely visit again when in Burbank.

Excellent service, great food, fast delivery to table, outstanding lunch special. Always a pleasure to dine here, I have never been disappointed, for small lunches (2-4 people), large lunches (8 people) and even large dinners (25+ people) with multiple times for each. Kudos to the staff, management, kitchen and owners of the restaurant.

I want them to be successful; but the food is mediocre and the service is pretty unconcerned. So, my comments when I received a “white pizza” with indescribably tough prociutto slapped over a nest of raw radicchio on top of a rather luke warm melt of 3 cheeses fell on deaf ears. It must be a problem I have that I want to be able to properly chew and digest my food. The chicken piccata was kinda greasy and the chicken was tough and dry. Well this wasn’t appreciated either. My dinner mate ordered the eggplant part and kindly said it was ok but greasy. The attitude of the very charming waitress was kind of “ah to each his own”. Disappointed. Plus the ambiance is still very scattered with weird Tinney music and TVs with odd pictures scrolling through. I soooo want an excellent restaurant in Burbank that is NOT a chain. But if they aren’t willing to listen to their customers what can you do?

My same sex spouse and I went to the Burbank location for my 60th birthday. Our waiter only sings Happy Birthday and cake to heterosexual couples and not LGBTQ couples. The food gave us the runs. We plan to file a report with LA County Health and sue them for violating California Laws that protect same-sex couples.

This was the second time we had visited Centanni. While the food was excellent, for some reason our service was really sluggish. We saw people who were seated well after us ordering and receiving their food before us, and it took almost an hour for us to get our entrees. I wouldn't be commenting on it except my husband and I got the identical meals we ate last time, and the time between ordering and receiving our meals was completely different on our first visit, and the restaurant was 10x busier that first visit.

The food really is excellent and we'll definitely be coming back, but hopefully next time we'll get our food a bit quicker.
