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.

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.
