Merrill Shindler, Restaurant Critic

"Cantalini's is a joyous - and delicious reminder of why we fell in love with Italian cooking in the first place!"

Lisetta Maria

Lisetta Maria brought her long time dream of owning a restaurant to life when she established Cantalini’s Salerno Beach Restaurant, our Playa del Rey ‘dine-in’ location in January 2000. She expanded that dream with the opening of Cantalini’s Express in October 2012, and continues to share her love of family and community by participating in and supporting many local charities and organizations.
