Inside Ginger Sun Spa, guests recline on the Ergoline Open Sun 1050 bed, revelling in the high-pressure bed’s adjustable facial tanners and built-in sound system. The Sun Capsule Cosmo 250 stand-up booth caramelizes skin in seven minutes with 54 performance UV bulbs, and its adjustable ceiling hand grips ensure clients stay comfortable while holding up their arms in order to get more even tans. With its certified airbrush technicians, the tanning spa is able to forgo UV rays or apricot Crayola crayons to bronze skin, instead using a hand-held Norvell sunless-spray-tan applicator. Other beautification services include manicures and infrared-sauna sessions, which help burn calories, reduce the appearance of cellulite, and improve skin issues such as eczema.

At Pepe’s New York Pizza, a cozy neighborhood joint open until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, staffers serve up 20-inch pizzas to pie-starved customers. Morsels of pineapple and ham on the hawaiian pizza give diners a taste of the tropics, and the spinach white pie presents slices free of tomato sauce, the No. 1 cause of spinach that tastes wrong. Customers can also opt for the barbecue-chicken pizza or crown the cheese-only pizza with their favorite toppings for a personalized meal. As a counterpoint to the classic caesar salad, the chopped salad fuses lettuce, tomatoes, chickpeas, and mozzarella into a flavorful melee of vegetables. Completing the spread is a serving of garlic bread, which may contain garlic.

At Sinopoli's Real Italian, just looking at images of the Italian eatery's food is enough to put a person in a good mood, unless craving tasty meals makes you furious. Formerly Cafe Aldente, Sinopoli's features a revamped menu that was featured on Food Network's Mystery Eaters. The menu is stocked with authentic recipes from southern Italy, where the Sinopoli family is from. Gooey cheese pizza. Perfectly toasted panini sandwiches. A big scoop of housemade tuna salad atop a bed of fresh greens. Spaghetti tossed in marinara sauce. The restaurant, owned by a New York transplant, seeks to replicate the experience of dinner in his nonna's kitchen: satisfying from beginning to end. Start with bruschetta, move on to an entree of shrimp scampi or herbed lamb chops accompanied by roasted potatoes or saut?ed broccoli, then end on a sweet note with housemade tiramisu. Sinopoli's also goes beyond pleasing palates, offering free parking and "pooch-friendly" patio dining.

Hand-stretched dough. Sauce made in store from hand-crushed tomatoes. Locally sourced meats cooked and flavored in house. Natural produce sliced by hand. These components form the foundation of Lucifers Pizza’s pies, which LA Weekly lauded as “devilishly unique.” In addition to cooking up classics such as the margherita and the hawaiian, New Zealanders Adam and Milan Borch bake gourmet pizzas with nontraditional ingredients including roasted pumpkin, lamb, and Thai-style satay chicken. To accommodate dietary restrictions, their pies can also include gluten-free crusts and vegan cheese.

Adam and Milan craft each pizza on a spice rating from zero to blazing, which intrepid diners can combat by drinking the pizzeria’s own mineral-spring water, throwing back Mexican Cokes, or gargling foam from the nearest fire extinguisher. Lucifers Pizza’s tiny storefront evokes that spiciness with orange flames painted on its façade, and its dark and intimate interior echoes the restaurant’s darkly comical concept.

The cultural mélange that characterizes Spice on Hollywood's menu draws inspiration from across the globe, incorporating familiar American, Mexican, and Italian recipes. Regardless of the dish's origin, the chefs demonstrate a commitment to homestyle flavors by making tomato sauces and pico de gallo salsa in-house. Pizzas can arrive decked with any of 14 available toppings—including barbecued chicken, feta cheese, and basil—and savory mushrooms accompany servings of flame-grilled rib-eye steak. These varied cuisines also influence the eatery's menu of breakfast staples, which features huevos rancheros and black beans alongside belgian waffles with fresh strawberries and powdered sugar.

The intimately sized dining area creates a cozy, café-like ambiance. Chalkboards with daily specials line a wall behind the front counter, pendant lamps gently illuminate dark wooden tables, and floor-to-ceiling windows flood the room with natural light for diners who prefer to cook their own meals photosynthetically.

The food at Marco's Trattoria found its beginnings in Florence, Italy, where Marco and his mother Franca Capanni were born. Franca came to the U.S. with her husband—a decorated World War II soldier who fought in Italy. She later moved Los Angeles with Marco and his brother and provided for them by working in Italian restaurants. In addition to helping Marco open his trattoria, she has another claim to fame: she appeared as the home cook in Daft Punk's "Revolution 909" video, directed by Roman Coppola.

Sixteen years later, the staff members have changed but the food remains tied to the Capanni legacy. The menu ranges from classic spaghetti with meatballs to a creamy risotto with sirloin tips, bleu cheese, caramelized onions, and mushrooms. You can pair such dishes with libations from an eclectic wine and beer list, which is regularly updated until Prohibition is reinstated.
