Marcelino's Italian Kitchen

There are 2 of these in the same town, Sherman Oaks. One is more of a take out place - the one on Burbank Blvd. is for eating in. It's a pretty typical Italian restaurant, with salads, sandwiches, pastas and calzones. It seems very family oriented, maybe its the children's drawings on the tables or the actual child who took my drink order.

Me and a friend ordered a large pizza, it was about 16 inches for 13 dollars. Very reasonable. They have two sizes bigger, Family and Jumbo which are probably 18 and 20 inch pizzas.
It was definitely a decent pie. Simple, not too many spices, a light sweet sauce with good cheese and a thin and crispy crust. The crust had a corn meal bottom which I believe kept it crispy. It wasn't as thin as i could have been. It had the same thickness from the outer edge all the way to the middle. So it was the middle that could have thinned out a bit. The opposite of what the outer edge could have been. The crust was kind of tasteless and a little dry as well. Though this is all overly critical. It is a cheap pizza that seems high quality and tastes good. The place is what a pizzeria should be as well: easy going, no glitz or excessive decor and it had a sense of family which always makes a pizza taste better.
Anyway, they have a great van so they are ok in my book.
