      1. I have always been very happy with Scarantino's for old school red-sauce Italian. And it is in Glendale!

        1. We've enjoyed Columbo's in Eagle Rock on multiple occasions - VERY old-school, bar is just a little better than the kitchen, but then the bar is very, very good. Live music Saturday nights - take that as either an announcement or a warning. I don't know if they even do pizza; red sauce pasta and steaks are their thing. It's the kind of place the villain in "Big Night" ran. There is probably an autographed picture of Sinatra on a wall in there …

            They do have pizza. I have seen it but not tried it. Also, live music EVERY night.

          2. Have you tried Divina Cucina up on Verdugo Road/ Montrose?

            1. I like Divina Cucina too. But if you can make a 15 min drive, I highly suggest Colori Kitchen in downtown LA. It's better than Divina in my opinion. It's better than Bottega Louie and most other Italian restaurants. Osteria Mamma is great and I haven't tried Angelini yet.
