bacco trattoriaThe space last occupied by La Scala has been transformed into a warm, Italian-style trattoria that is part wine bar, part restaurant and part deli. And the sum of its parts is delicious. The pleasing ambience features dark woods, brick, white linens and a tile mosaic of Bacchus, the restaurant's namesake and the Roman god of wine. His influence begins with a robust wine list, extends to the wine sauces that grace several entrees, and ends at the beautiful wine bar where you can enjoy the fruit of the vine.

I thought I knew all the fine Italian restaurants in Glendale. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon Notte Luna, a charming trattoria hidden in the alley between Brand Boulevard and Maryland Avenue. The place looked elegant, the service seemed attentive, and the aromas emanating from the kitchen were fantastic. Why were only two of the 20 or so tables filled? After enjoying a phenomenal meal there, I’m still trying to answer that question. I can only guess it’s because it’s hard to find.

Just yards from bustling Foothill Boulevard, an oasis of greenery and serenity sits tucked behind a garden gate. Step onto the shady porch of Penelope's Café in La Cañada Flintridge and through the Dutch door, and you'll feel at home right away. Comfortable couches and chairs offer nooks for chatting over a cup of cappuccino or more serious consumption. Everywhere you glance, something interesting awaits your gaze ? a photo or painting, a sculpture or a piece of hand-made jewelry.

Bill Scollon Many of us know how tough it is to be the new kid in the neighborhood. To win people over, you have to give them something extra. Happily, newcomer Michael's Bar and Grill is up to the challenge. Michael's menu is built around Italian food -- pasta, pizza and paninis. But there are enough non-Italian dishes, such as steamed mussels, entree salads, chicken, steak and ahi tuna, to please any palate. The owners have done a nice job updating the decor from the "chaotic eclectic" look of the former tenant to something more modern.

prosecco'sRefreshing, sparkling, reasonably priced -- these words, used to describe Prosecco wine, might just as well describe Prosecco the restaurant. A true Italian trattoria, Prosecco's is a place of casual elegance specializing in personal service, where regulars are greeted by name and individual preferences are indulged. Where the warmth and tastes of Tuscany can be found in the simple, well-prepared dishes set before you. Begin with the wonderful soups. Prosecco's soups are dairy-free, but they're so rich and creamy, you'll wonder how they do it. The Roasted Corn Chowder, always on the menu, is savory, hearty and topped with crispy proscuitto.

We are often faced with some puzzling decisions when we decide to eat out. We often ask ourselves, "where should we go? Is there someplace we haven't tried before?" Sometimes those decisions are made by a simple drive down the boulevard. Unfortunately, using this "drive-by" method might allow you to miss some unique dining opportunities, such as 100 West American Grill, which is ensconced safely inside the Hilton Hotel Glendale on Glenoaks Boulevard. At 100 West, it has been their goal to "provide an exceptional and upscale dining experience for the Glendale community," since they began operations in 1992.

Krust, a café and bakery with a sense of humor, has a motto that is closely aligned to my philosophy of life: A balanced diet is a brownie in both hands. But that's not the only reason I like the place. Krust Café & Bakery is a new addition to the Burbank restaurant scene. The owners Shawn and Kaylene Stevens have done a great job, taking a Verdugo Avenue storefront and turning it into a beautifully decorated café/bakery that exudes style and comfort. The cabinetry that houses mouthwatering baked goods and even souvenir T-shirts, came custom-painted from Arte de Mexico.

Mastro's Steakhouse is one of the most popular social gathering spots in L.A.'s hip Westside. Last week, the upscale dining room debuted on the Orange Coast at a new Crystal Cove location. It's called Mastro's Ocean Club, and some 500 curious coasters poured in for a little opening night celebration. Executive chef Mark Lupino prepared a feast for the opening night crowd, serving an entire menu of selections, including steak and chops, and fresh seafood and shellfish.
