Santino's is by far the best *****
Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, CA
As someone who is originally from North Jersey, I am extremely picky about my pizza and Italian food. Now, while there are a lot of great Italian places in the Valley for a nice sit-down dinner, when it comes to take-out, that's a whole another story.
I have tried easily 20-30 other pizza places in the Valley and Santino's is by far the best of the bunch. The second best if East Coast Pizza in Simi Valley FYI.
What makes Santino's stand out is the quality. The pizza dough and crust are perfect, the quality of the food is great, and most importantly, the sauce is absolutely amazing. Anyone who knows Italian food knows that it's all about the sauce and this place nails it.
Another thing to be said is the crust, which is exactly how it should be. There are so many places that attempt to make it extremely thin crust and others that are way too thick, this place has it down to a science.
Besides the pizza, the rest of their food is pretty great as well. I have had the meatball sub, the lasagna (some of best I ever had honestly), chicken parm dinner plate, and the cannolis. All of these items are delicious just like the pizza.
