A local landmark for nearly 50 years, Cantalini's has been under its current ownership since January 2000 and we are proud to present the very best in traditional Italian Cuisine.
A Little History......
Giovanni Cimino came to California from Salerno Beach, Italy and opened Giovanni's Salerno Beach Restaurant in the early 60's. His menu was a simple reflection of old world, Southern Italian cooking and became popular with may of the locals who, to this day, reminisce about the many memories made within these walls.
What was uniquely Giovanni was his colorful personality ranging from this Christmas themed decor to his spontaneous opera singing while serving his guests. There are so many stories from those days and we are pleased to have evolved into what Cantalini's is today.
Our family is from Abruzzi and although some of our menu is influenced by other regions, our handmade pastas and sauces have been handed down fro generations. Our food is made with a passionate attention to quality and tradition. Everything is made to order to ensure the utmost in freshness.
It is our pleasure to serve you and we hope you visit us soon.
