Centanni never disappoints. The food is always delicious and the waitstaff is attentive, friendly and efficient.

We love the outside seating tent that has been set up because of Covid and feel very safe and comfortable outside dining. Hope that they continue to offer this option for folks like us who tend to want to go out but want to feel safe during the pandemic.

We wholeheartedly recommend Centanni.

Centanni Burbank offers inside, outside and take out upscale Italian food. The staff is friendly and service was efficient. The food was better than ever so I recommend eating at the restaurant if possible. We had chicken marsala and salmon in champagne sauce and both dishes were heavenly.

Reservation was given and confirmed at the time they closed apparently. We were the only ones there and we felt like we had to rush since the kitchen was closing the moment we walked in. Food was great, but the overall experience was awkward.

What a pleasant hidden gem! This neighborhood trattoria in Burbank is a must visit. The food (lasagna, Pollo Piccata and parmesan fries) were all piping hot and delicious.
Mauricio (our waiter) and Helen (the owner) were helpful and delightful. We will be back!

We enjoyed two birthday celebrations during this dinner. We had a guest from the east coast and it was nice to show off our “local Italian spot”. As usual the owner Helen was gracious as ever. The new menu was yummy but we love our favorites like the Sole and the Calamari. The Sautéed shrimp starter is so yummy we had to get two to start. The specials aren’t to missed like the NZ lamb chops, the ravioli w rib eye was delish esp w the addition of burrata on top.
May I suggest if you have a special evening planned, request Thomas as your server. He is attentive and service oriented. He wasn’t our server on this evening but we did have him as our server the week prior and we noticed the difference. He was kind enough to get us condiments and other things we needed even though we weren’t in his section, that’s a good server!

I would love to have a place like this in my neighborhood! The other guests seemed like regulars, which was a good sign. We ordered the calamari, ravioli di zucca (pumpkin ravioli), and guazzetto di pesce (seafood soup). The calamari was a touch overcooked, but everything else was excellent. We didn't have any alcohol as both of us were driving right afterwards, but the wine list looked extensive. Service is attentive and welcoming. There's a small parking lot attached and street parking doesn't seem like it would be an issue. Overall, my companion and I had a great experience and would definitely come again if we were in the area.

Centanni is our go to when we are in the mood for delicious Italian food that’s freshly made.
We enjoyed some of our favorites the light and crispy calamari & a new addition the grilled artichoke
Hearts Yum, we also had two blackboard specials one favorite the sole w lemon sauce and the NZ lamb chops that came w the most delicious potatoes w spinach. We also enjoyed the seafood soup full of clams calamari and shrimp, I had the grilled shrimp ap as my main w a side of pasta
The desserts are always a hit too, save room for their crime brûlée, the gelato was nice too. As always Helen’s warm greeting and table touch to assure everything was to her high standards is what keeps us coming back.
Our server Thomas was personable and did a great job.
We’ll be back soon for another Centanni feast.

Food was very very dry. Had to order a side of marinara sauce to make the food eatable. The bread was terrible. Very dry, chalky and crumbly, not soft like bread should be. The Staff was very nice and friendly however the Waiter dropped off our food and just left, he didn't even offer to put black pepper or parmagian cheese on my pasta. I had to get up out of my table, walk up to him and ask for black pepper.

The ambiance was weird. The music they played was Broadway showtunes instead of classical Italian songs. They had TV screens throughout the restaurant flashing pictures of animals and Hollywood Celebrities which was very strange considering the photos had nothing to do with Italy or Italian food. I'm glad they weren't blasting pop songs or showing sports or the news on the TVs like it was a Sports Bar, but still it was strange.

I needed to meet a friend in Burbank and picked this restaurant based on Yelp reviews. The food was excellent, the servers were friendly, the place was quaint. I think the best part was that the owner (Helen), spent time at each table making sure that everyone was happy with their meals. I will definitely go back here!

Always great. We've dined here dozens of times over the years and they only get better. Owner Helen is a great host and Chef Marin prepares fresh, attractive and delicious dishes! Don't miss the BRUSCHETTA RUSTICA! The Cavatelli is a favorite and they have great ravioli.

Tonight they had a special duck and black truffle ravioli that was perfection! In fact, I always try the specials and have never been let down. You can't miss.

Service was super taxed tonight as a couple players called in sick, but the team banded together and worked their tails off to ensure we had great service. If we didn't know, we wouldn't have known!

They offer a very reasonable and appreciated $15 corkage and also have their own beer and wine. Centanni is a perfect option for any meal in Burbank, but especially if you're looking for Italian.

We were so glad to be able to dine inside after such a long hiatus. It was just as if time stood still!! Delicious food, attentive wait staff and a very family friendly atmosphere. (Thank you, Helen!) We also enjoyed outside dining several times and always enjoyed our take-out. We are so glad that this neighborhood gem was able to survive during the pandemic.

Upon arrival I had googled the food and the place. Other people had given this restaurant 5 stars. I truly do not know why. The menu/food on the website do not match the menu that’s given. I had a special request for them to sing HBD but that never happens either. Never acknowledged it. We ordered appetizers which were the only decent thing that night. We get to entrees and the lasagna had peas in it, the sauce and meat texture didn’t go with it. It looked like the lasagna was cut out of some serving pan and heated up. Food was warm. The other entrees ordered was spaghetti and wild mushroom pasta. Both were very oily and little to no sauce. The mojitos weren’t good either. The waiter came to the table about twice and that was for beginning and the end of meal. Some other lady, I’m assuming was the owner asked how everything was and I gave her my honest opinion and she laughed and was like “you’re funny” and walked away. I was highly upset. The worst experience ever. Not to mention the food is very overpriced. To have $$$ and the food quality and atmosphere be horrible is not okay. Never will return again.

Drop everything -- grab your loved ones and go to this place. The food is so great. It's so easy to screw up Dover Sole turning it into a bland mess. Here -- it's a signature dish. The calamari is lovely and addictive. The pastas are glorious. And the banana bread pudding is over the moon delectable. The service is so good the servers are up for a good time, while being sensitive if your table is having an intimate conversation. Go! You'll love it!
