Far Niente

Glendale, California, April 22—
IT'S ONLY A ROUTINE Italian restaurant as far as the kitchen goes, but the dining room is comfortable, the service okay and even sympathetically entertaining at times, and it's hard to find anything as good this close to the theater we come to (A Noise Within). So once again we're at Far Niente.

I had a small green salad gussied up with grated carrot, then penne "Far Niente": in tomato sauce with bits of basil and melted Fontina (I think) mixed in. Dessert was a nice little panna cotta, a dish I particularly like.
