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.

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.

BURBANK — Caitlyn Batchelor came home one day and asked her mother if there were any old blankets around. The Bret Harte Elementary School second-grader wanted to donate the blankets to Operation Blankets of Love, a volunteer organization that provides blankets and bedding to local animal shelters and rescue groups. “I feel bad for the animals, and I don’t want them to feel cold,” said Caitlyn, 8. She is one of several students at the school who contributed 212 blankets to the organization, which was started in January by city resident Eileen Smulson.

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 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 d├ęcor, 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.

mario'sIf 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.

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.
