My Uncle Angelo kept a tradition of throwing pizza parties over at his house. He used to be a pizza maker back in New York, and I guess he sometimes missed making pies for a crowd of shouting people. So, about once every three months or so, he and his wife, my father's sister Edie, would invite the family over for all the pizza we could eat. A lot of people turned up for these parties, and a lot of people stayed away. My uncle was a strange man who did strange things.

Owners Maurizio and Ruth Iacono have been restaurateurs for more than twenty years.

Eureka! I?ve found it! I have found the best pizza in Glendale, and it comes from a little shop near Glendale Avenue and Colorado Street. Co-owner Gianluca Marcon hails from Italy and puts obvious pride into each one of his pies. I use the word pie literally here because these pizzas are more like multilayered culinary objets d?art than slabs of dough with stuff thrown on top. Any good pizza, of course, starts with good crust. And the crust at Rocky?s is no exception. They talked me into the deep-dish crust for $1 extra and, admittedly, it was outstanding.

The new Giuseppe’s in Montrose hits all the right notes. The owners transformed the interior of the old DaFranco’s Italian restaurant to reflect what the Montrose community is all about — family, friends and conversation. They kept the quaint brick-lined coves and wine-barrel motifs, but added long wooden tables, giant mirrors and warm lighting. They also added good, modern, affordable Italian fare. Owner Michelle Capozzoli is the daughter of Bob and Patricia Capozzoli, proprietors of the former Giuseppe’s in Glendale, so Italian food is in her blood.

Three new eateries ranging from fancy to fast casual are arriving in the heart of downtown Glendale. On Wednesday, Bourbon Steak held a grand-opening ceremony at the Americana at Brand. The restaurant is run by celebrity Chef Michael Mina, who also operates two more Bourbon Steak locations. The American fare ranges from the signature 18-ounce dry rib-eye steak to a classic bacon cheeseburger with no shortage of duck-fat fries. Truffle doughnuts are just one of the dessert items on the menu to cap off dinner.

Good morning, 818 readers. Today is Wednesday, March 5, 2014. The Glendale area will have a high of 71 and low of 53, according to the National Weather Service. The much-debated parcel tax received more than the two-thirds of the vote it required to pass, the County Clerk's office announced last night. While last weekend's wet weather was a welcome reprieve, it wasn't enough to wash away a statewide drought that is tracking close to the worst one ever in California's history, said a representative from Glendale's water supplier on Monday.

Edgar Martirosyan, the pizza delivery man who dished out slices to Hollywood's A-List stars on-air at the Academy Awards on Sunday night , was stunned when host Ellen DeGeneres asked him to follow her out into the audience. “I was shocked. At that point I didn't understand,” the Glendale resident told the City Council at a meeting Tuesday night. Martirosyan showed up to the City Hall meeting because his friend, Artur Soghomonyan, is a driver for the City of Glendale's meal delivery program for seniors, which the council was recognizing with a special proclamation.

Glendale-based Nestlé USA is voluntarily recalling four types of frozen pizzas sold under the California Pizza Kitchen and DiGiorno brands, the company announced Thursday. The pizzas are being recalled because of the chance that they may contain small fragments of clear plastic, which was reported by a small number of consumers who had purchased the CPK Crispy Thin Crust White Pizza. An internal investigation indicated the cause was directly related to a particular order of spinach received from a supplier, which was also used on the other three varieties of pizza recalled.

Now that Thanksgiving is over and Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa are upon us, evenings are likely to be filled with gift wrapping, project making, holiday concerts and school pageants. It's the most wonderful time of the year. It's also the busiest and the most bank-account-emptying. What to do for dinner on these hectic nights? Pizza is easy. Let me suggest a pizza option you may not have heard of. Gardenia Market in La Crescenta has the best $5.99 large, one-topping pie around. You do have to pick up the pizza, but Gardenia Market is freeway close (at the 210 Freeway's Pennsylvania offramp)

Cooley requested that the Los Angeles County Superior Court order single-drug execution methods for 52-year-old Mitchell Sims, who was sentenced to death in 1986 for the murder of 21-year-old delivery driver, John Steven...

According to a recent article in the Los Angeles Times, independent restaurants are struggling. Since the start of the recession, American consumers increased their patronage of larger chain restaurants and decreased the number of meals at mom-and-pop businesses, forcing more than 7,000 independent eateries to close since fall of 2008. One can only speculate on the reasons for this, but I think most people would agree it's a shame. Happily, some maverick independent restaurants actually expanded.

The Hot Spot Café & Pizzeria, from all appearances, is just that — a hot spot. The Glendale Police Department is a few steps away out the back door; City Hall is a stone’s throw away, and the courthouse is diagonally across the street. Next door, day workers ply their trade in front of Dunn-Edwards Paints. “Everything in here is great,” offered a day worker as he chowed down on a lunch of fried eggs, bacon, hash browns and white toast. It looked good. The eggs were cooked exactly the way I like them — fried and up. A police detective came in the back door and sat down at a table behind me. He’s a regular.
