The Tudor-Craftsman façade of the 102-year-old Glen Tavern Inn has many claims to fame: the former headquarters of Union Oil, a onetime speakeasy, and host to stars such as John Wayne and Rin Tin Tin. However; today, it’s inhabited by Enzo's Italian Restaurant, whose chefs recreate classic Italian recipes. They sling pies into an Old World-style pizza oven, which fires crusts topped with artichokes and pepperoncinis or chicken with pesto and feta cheese to a perfect golden brown. They also churn out pastas such as Sicilian-style rigatoni with sausage and creamy marinara sauce. Exposed wooden beams crisscross the ceiling in the dining room, where each weekend diners can applaud live entertainment or join in by playing their spoons.

Bella Cucina accompanies its entrees with an extensive wine list, and on Mondays, patrons can bring in their own bottles and enjoy free corkage.
