Mazzarino's opening soon? Sherman Oaks

I drove by Mazzarino's last night and noticed the paper on the front windows was removed.

Now the front windows are unveiled leaving me to think the opening should happen soon?

I just rang their old phone number and they are shooting for this weekend!

Hhhmm those breadsticks :>)

  1. They are running an ad in the current local Sherman Oaks/Studio City newspaper as if they are already open.

    1. Just drove by, and they are open. There's a big banner out front that says, and I quote, "Mazzarino's is open."

        Yup, saw the sign being put up today as well. Hope they're open too!!

        1. Hooray! I've missed their garlic bread. Want to know if the menu is the same and if the food taste just as good as before--please post if anyone tries soon.

          1. What is the allure of this place other than red sauce and garlic bread/toast, because I really do not eat either?
            shopping at Gooches/WFM across the street as I have, I never felt motivated to try the place, and this after over 25 years of driving by it!!!

              It's been a couple of years since it was open, but the spicy red sauce, the Arrabiata, had been the item for me. If you don't eat Italian food with red sauce, this is not the place for you.

            2. this place is better than ever. yes it is a great red sauce italian with great garlic bread. but it is also the best chicago style italian beef sami in town. great pizza. fast delivery too! i have been calling several times a month and finally they opened! i live around the corner and am already a frequent flier!
