Day 76: Tarantino’s Pizzeria – A Perfect Spot For Lunch!

I finally had a chance to visit Tarantino’s Pizzeria for lunch. I’ve heard about it from many of my friends, but somehow never had an opportunity to pop in.  So… Day 76 of 365 Things To Do In Pasadena™ offers a great place for lunch!

Tarantino's Pizzeria in Pasadena

Tarantino’s is around Green Street and Hudson in the South Lake Avenue District. Definitely one of those restaurants that you would not notice driving down Green. However, definitely a favorite with Pasadeneans and the place was rockin’ for lunch!

Every red checkered table was taken and the waiters were barely able to keep up with orders. Why? Well… they’re known for their pizzas and if you love garlic, then pastas are for you! You’ll be in garlic heaven!

Prices are extremely reasonable. A pasta dish with side salad and bread runs under $6! Food is hot, service is great and the folks are friendly!

Next time, I’m trying their famous pizza and I hear that they have one of the best garbanzo salads (full of garlic!) in the area!!!

Oh… it’s CASH only!!!! So… don’t forget your mula… however, they’ll accept checks. 🙂

    Excellent opportunity to own a stylish and spacious condo unit in Pasadena! The complex recently renovated the common area, so the complex is secure and safe. I really love that the unit is spacious for the modern buyer. The modern kitchen opens up to the living room, so it has the open concept feel. In addition, the master bath was tastefully done and a sure favorite. As a bonus, the seller recently installed fencing to make the yard area more private, however, the new owner can expand their yard space along the unit border; with HOA permission. Two tandem parking spots are included. Property is just minutes from Old town Pasadena, Paseo Colorado, the Rose Bowl, and the 210 freeway.
