Dinner can be a hectic affair, and some families find that getting a filling, nutritious meal onto the table every night is sometimes exhausting. Knowing that dining out every night can quickly break the budget, entrepreneur Jay Cornwall decided to bridge the gap between takeout and at-home meals with a menu of freshly prepared pasta, ravioli, sauce, and entrees that can be fashioned into a full meal in less than 10 minutes. Every day, his chefs create a selection of 24 pastas, 15 sauces, and a signature entree, as well as mac 'n' cheese and lasagna. Chefs also curate a range of sides, bread, and wine, and even offer pairing advice on complementary flavors.

The dough wizards at Papa John's create circular masterpieces with original and thin crusts made from high-protein flour to support warm bouquets of toppings. Hand-cut produce crowns all of Papa John's pizzas, mingling with the sun-soaked sweetness of sauce made from fresh, California-grown tomatoes. By adhering to its brand promise of "better ingredients, better pizza," Papa John's grew from a back-tavern pizzeria into more than 3,500 restaurants within three decades' time, or the amount of time it takes to grow a single pizzeria from a small seed.

Open for lunch and dinner, the restaurant also serves up a kid-friendly menu for insatiable whippersnappers and adults still wearing 90s-era L.A. Lights.

Taking its name from the Italian word for "lively," Vivace Ristorante embraces the vibrant character of classic Mediterranean cooking. The menu focuses on the cuisines of two regions?Tuscany and Piedmont?in particular, allowing traditional recipes and fresh, seasonal ingredients to give dishes character.

This dedication is evident in dishes such the ricotta- and spinach-stuffed manicotti?served straight from a wood-fired oven?and the specialty risotto that changes daily, much like the order of the colors in the rainbow. Along with a diverse assortment of Tuscan and Piedmontese bottles, the six-page wine list also features a large number of choices from Californian producers. This commitment to local viticulture has helped Vivace Ristorante earn an Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator every year for more than a decade.

The glass-enclosed wine cellar's floor-to-ceiling cedar racks aren't the only elegant sights within Vivace Ristorante's dining room. With its burgundy-hued walls, stone fireplace, and crisp white linens draped across each table, the restaurant surrounds tables in a refined yet inviting setting. An open kitchen reinforces this homey character, allowing diners to watch as the cooks prepare each meal without ever resorting to magic spells.

Each pasta entree at Caprino's Restaurant begins as a mound of fresh dough. From there, chefs turn it into linguine and spaghetti and tuck butternut squash into ravioli pockets. The stuff that goes on top is also house-made, naturally: meatballs, garlic-basil cream, olive-oil/chardonnay sauce.

Pasta may reign supreme, but the menu also holds other hearty entrees, including grilled-to-order rib eye, prosciutto pizza, and chicken marsala. Sunday brunch even departs from this Italian template a bit, adding southwest-inspired dishes and catfish and grits to red-white-and-green-flecked sandwiches and scrambles.

Caprino's handsome, wood-accented dining room is equally welcoming to adults and adults-in-training. There's a full bar and, naturally, a deep wine list, split about evenly between Italy and California. But there's also a kids' menu with fun options such as mini burgers and a "dirty mashed potato" topped with bacon, cheese, and, eventually, tiny fingerprints.
