When I first heard that Mama Mia was opening in Burbank, I had visions of the critically acclaimed Broadway musical in my mind. Well, maybe ABBA did not inspire this version, but it definitely deserves the spotlight. Mama Mia in Burbank is the latest entry in the Italian pizza and pasta take-out trend. I admit, they have some serious competition in this city alone, but if given a chance, they just might take center stage. Take note, when you first walk into Mama Mia, the stark white floor and walls may blind you for a moment.

If the pace of modern life proves too frantic for you, step back to the good old days with a visit to Scarantino's Italian Inn in Glendale. The décor, the menu (including the prices), the music and the whole vibe of the place are reminiscent of the past. From the red-and-white checked tablecloths to the dangling plastic grape clusters, this Italian institution is the real deal, and no wonder. The Scarantino family has been boiling up pasta and making pizza pies since the 1940s, and at this location since the '60s.

SOUTH GLENDALE — Three days a week, Renee Kaster breaks out a large pot and boils pasta, lots of it. The pasta is a staple menu item for her 20 to 40 guests, all of them chronically homeless people from central Glendale. Kaster does the cooking pretty much on her own, knowing that without her meals, the homeless would have even fewer eating options in a city that, since March, has lacked a free daily meals program. “I think a lot of people would find this to be time consuming and a lot of effort, but I still feel they deserve a meal,” she said.

Everything about the new Deluca's Deli in the Americana says "Italia. " Strains of its lyrical language are bandied about over glass deli cases, products from Tuscany and Umbria scale its industrial metal shelving, and food offerings, like porchetta and capponata, are authentically Italian. Chef Piero Topputo is Italian as is owner Tancredi Deluca. Together with uber-developer Rick Caruso, Deluca also owns the neighboring Trattoria Amici, whose kitchen the deli shares. Not to be confused with Dean & Deluca, the famous Manhattan eatery, Deluca's Deli set out to make a light and breezy eatery that serves hot and cold sandwiches, salads, artisan cheeses and pastas to go. They succeeded.

Cherie Mercer Twohy Divine Kitchen? A lofty claim, but perhaps there is a cherub flitting about the kitchen of Divina Cucina, a popular Montrose dining spot. On a steamy weeknight, the dining room was crowded with convivial groups beating the barometer with salads, pastas and more. An enclosed patio offers additional seating. Softly sponge-painted walls blend from ocher to sunrise yellow, with a flight of angels cavorting on one end of the ceiling.

Cherie Mercer Twohy While you may not want to eat it first, leave room for dessert when you visit Chemario. A slate patio with wicker bistro chairs and umbrella-covered tables provides an al fresco dining opportunity, although the view of traffic is not alluring. Inside, decor is soothingly spare, with pale wood flooring, and paler-still green walls, sharply punctuated by sleek black tables and leather armchairs. The focal point of the room is the pastry case, gleaming like a jewel box, replete with precious gems.

With a fig-fruit-colored apron protecting her clothes, Jamie Crockett cut her brown-skinned potato into julienne slices. As one of 35 students in the advanced-foods class at Herbert Hoover High School, Jamie, 15, of Glendale, will learn every way to chop, dice and slice ingredients throughout the school year. The students' culinary maestro, chef and foods teacher Dawn Roznowski, had the class concentrate on uniform cutting and the prevention of food oxidation on Monday. "You can never get enough practice with knife cuts," Roznowski said.

The envelopes have been opened and the Oscars awarded, but most of us are still catching up on the "must see" movies. Before or after a screening in La Cañada Flintridge, Café Sole is a great place to catch a bite. Nestled between a big-name coffee place and a cellphone store, expectations for this place might not be high, but the family-run restaurant offers value and variety in pleasant surroundings. They've been here 10 years, so they must be doing something right! The patio is inviting on warm days or evenings, and heaters provide warmth when the sun will not. The interior boasts about a dozen tables, in view of the kitchen's bustle and flame.
