Italian Pizza and Pasta in Lake Almanor, California

Under new ownership!  Dennis Mannle and Stacy Andersen purchased the restaurant last June 4, 2019. Originally from Vallejo, CA, we bring over 30 years of experience in the pizza/pasta business.  Stacy grew up coming to the Lake Almanor Peninsula as her family’s yearly vacation spot.  After introducing Dennis to this beautiful area (and the most famous Pizza/Pasta spot on the lake) he fell in love and wanted to make this our home.  Dennis started with Napoli’s Pizza over 30 years ago and has been bringing his touch of recipes and specials to the menu over the past year.

Tantardino’s, a family run business for the last 28 years, has become the best home cooked Italian dinner to all the locals as well as the many others that come visit.  We take pride in upholding that standard while introducing new and improved recipes.  Thank you to everyone for welcoming us to this community and for the tremendous support we have received for our first year!  We love serving you!
