Going to Briganti, I learned an important lesson: Don't be fooled by first impressions. With so many charming restaurants in historic buildings in South Pasadena, why go to a place with prefab windows and faux distressed bricks? Because the food is incredible, that's why. Once you step inside, the decor becomes a bit more charming. But go a few steps farther to the outdoor courtyard with its soaring roof, try to score a table by the large window that opens onto the tree-lined street, and suddenly you're in a refined trattoria in southern Italy.

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.

In my family, no one can make lasagna like my mom. Everyone, including myself, has tried and come up short. When I see lasagna on any menu, I skip it. I did, that is, until I stopped by Victorio's Ristorante in Burbank. From the moment you walk into Victorio's, you feel like you have discovered a quiet, comfortable refuge from the world. I was greeted by a friendly young hostess who offered me any booth. There are not many choices, the restaurant is rather small, but I found the perfect seat in direct view of the baseball game on the flat-screen television.

For most people, you can never have too much Italian food. The Tri-city area is blessed with many fine Italian eateries, and Maurizio's Italian Kitchen and Bar is one of Glendale's epicurean delights. Located in "The Exchange" at 135 N. Maryland Avenue, Maurizio's offers "superb Italian food" in a romantic setting that is close to Glendale's entertainment centers. Owners Maurizio and Ruth Iacono have been restaurateurs for more than twenty years.

Ben Godar When you get a dozen or so guys together for 24 hours, somebody better know how to cook. Nobody knows that better than firefighters. Glendale's firefighters are sharing their culinary know-how by posting their best recipes on their Web site. The recipes already on the site run the gamut from hot (Lasagna al "Ferno") to sweet (Italian Ricotta Cheesecake). Fire Captain Niall Foley said there are four rules when cooking for firefighters.

Robert Downey Jr. stared at me all through my lunch. I was eating at Studio Café Magazzino, a tiny, home-spun café across from the massive Warner Bros. complex, enjoying the homemade soup and sandwiches, when I noticed that Sherlock Holmes himself was looking right through the window, his gigantic eyes boring out from a poster covering a beige stucco building corner. The view inside the café was less distracting. A distressed, white picket fence covers part of the counter and potted ivy spills over an old metal icebox and sink in one corner.

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.

Several years ago, I spent a memorable month traveling through Italy. The hospitality of the people and the distinctive cuisines were what stood out most in my mind, not to mention the unforgettable countryside and beautiful cities, museums and art. In the United States, we have a tendency to take cultural cuisine and add an American twist to the dish. Not so at Fratelli's Pizzeria. Owned and operated by Maurizio and Ruth Iacono in the Montrose area for just about 10 years, Fratelli's authentic Italian cuisine is second to none.

If Mario's hasn't been a location for a movie shoot, it should be. It's the quintessential neighborhood Italian deli, with soccer posters, Italian flags and gigantic cheeses hanging from the rafters, bin after bin of every shape pasta one can think of, and that familiar aroma of garlic, salami and olive oil. Conversations in Italian ebb and flow, adding to the atmosphere. The glass cases are filled with an irresistible array of antipasti, including oil-cured olives. These plump and wrinkly deep black beauties are sometimes hard to find, and they are among my favorites.
