tarantino's pizzeria


the other night we sampled this green street pizza joint with some friends. needless to say, i forgot to take a photo of the beautiful pizzas before we had devoured a good majority of the slices.

we had been hearing about this place almost as long as we've lived in pasadena (everyone always reminds us "be careful if you go - it is cash only!") but for some reason we never tried it. maybe because it is a little off the beaten path, or maybe because we rarely walk down green street when we're hungry. but whatever the reason, we should have been there a long time ago.

the pizza was wonderful, and the waiters were friendly. despite the tiny space, they were willing to accommodate two young couples, each with a baby in tow. it might just be my new favorite pizza place in the 'dena.

Yes, Meredith enjoyed her salad as well - I on the other hand chose the mussels marinara. Superb!

Wow, Ben, your kid has really grown quickly. (Only kidding.)

Ha ha - she isn't far behind! Although she doesn't quite have the neck strength yet.
