This is my favorite Italian restaurant in Los Angeles. It is just like being in Italy. Helen and Alex are wonderful hosts. It is such a lovely change to be in a family run Italian restaurant. The food is delicious. I would eat there every day if I could.

Centanni was great for lunch when I went a while back, but dinner out with friends was underwhelming. The food was good but I expected better, and the service for a clear Tuesday night was very slow.

The food was amazing. It would be nice to get t a vegetable with a $17 slice of lasagna. Maybe some carpets would help with the noise. We could barely hear one another. Charge more and give a descent size wine. The wine was 5 swallows! Not good. I was shocked to see only lasagna on my plate. Waitress and hosostess were e very nice. Beautiful inside.

Went on a date here and had a great experience! Was a little loud for a date, but totally expected for a $ of $$$ Italian restaurant. Super yummy food and fantastic service. Had a hard time understanding my waiter, but maybe that's authentic? Loved it. I'd go back.

Love this restaurant! The owners and staff are so welcoming and friendly. The food is amazing! Love the artichoke appetizer (so beautifully plated), the bruschetta with prosciutto and burrata and the butternut squash ravioli. Portions are plentiful and so, so tasty!

This is our first time to Centanni in Burbank, but for years they were our favorite restaurant when they were in Venice. Alex and Helen are great, the food is fabulous. Couldn't recommend it more highly. We had our old favorites, but they've added to the Venice menu, so we'll be back soon.

Great food, friendly service, and very pleasant atmosphere. We went for a business lunch. The restaurant was fairly quiet and relaxing. Our server was outstanding. She was a great combination of friendliness and patience, letting us hang out and talk but still being attentive. Everyone at lunch commented on the quality of the food. Altogether a very positive experience, and we will be returning.

Literally the best lasagna we have ever had in our lives. It was outstanding. The pumpkin ravioli has room for improvement- a bit too hard and not enough sauce... but anything falls short next to that lasagna!

Service was outstanding. Never had to ask for anything. Server always there to help but not so much that they were intrusive. Perfect. Price is great. Just a matter of personal preference. Don't care for al dente ravioli or pasta and that is what we got. Too hard for us to enjoy so only ate a little. Lobster bisque not good. Couldn't eat and I usually love lobster bisque. Had Creme Brûlée for dessert. Not used to it being served cold. Menu said it had chocolate on the bottom. Had not had that before but really liked it. Unfortunately, I had just gotten into it and found that it was only on half. Also like that torched crispiness usually on top of creme brûlée and like "cracking" into it. This was soft on top. Flavor though was great. Tomatoes and burrata were delicious. Salad was excellent and easily enough to share among two. Tables were so close to each other that you couldn't help but talk to people on either side. And since we wanted a dinner for two, we weren't pleased with that. So overall good, certainly not bad, but not for us.

Such a lovely Christmas Eve dinner. We started with Centanni's fabulous Calamari, which really is ethereal - better than a top rated Japanese Tempura Master could make. (The lobster bisque soup is also a favorite, but we decided to pass on this visit so there would be room for dessert). Two of the special entrees that evening could not be ignored; the lobster raviollos (large handmade delicate pasta) in a lobster reduction sauce, and the assorted seafood stew (apologies but I cannot remember the Italian name, but it is similar to San Francisco Cioppino), which I had served over handmade tagliatelle pasta. A side dish of sautéed broccoli (generous enough to share) rounded out the dinner. And then came the Tiramisu, which was truly excellent. Service was attentive, but never intrusive. A wonderful respite from the hectic pace leading up to the Holidays - so glad that the lovely owners made the move from the Westside to Burbank!

We'd never been. Three of us had Sole, Salmon and it was just sensational. Our server was so kind and rolled with our many picky requests without a complaint. They even had Vermintino, one of my favorite wines! Thanks to YELP -- we discovered Centanni and will go there often from now on!

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
