Marcello Mauri spoke in rapid Italian to the vacationing couple from Rome who entered his gelateria on Broadway last week. After making them espresso in tiny demitasse cups, he offered them his laptop so they could check their e-mail. That focus on service is one of the singularities that owner Mauri hopes will distinguish his new gelato shop, Tutto Amore, from a gallon of frozen confectionery competitors. The store opened last Friday after a long construction period, in the same location where Baskin Robbins once held reign.

The Orange County District Attorney?s office has decided not to press charges against a tourist from Kansas who was accused of beating a sea gull after it went after his ice cream Dec. 31 on the boardwalk at Main Beach, spokeswoman Farah Emami said Tuesday. Dragan Djuric, 50, of Wichita, told police he was walking with his wife, eating ice cream cones when the couple was attacked by a pair of sea gulls who went after the ice cream. Djuric allegedly picked up a stick and beat one of the birds so severely it had to be euthanized at the Huntington Beach Wetlands and Wildlife Station.

"It's not a crust; it's a canvas." In 1986, the day before the first Z Pizza was to open, the charming and very chatty Sid Fanaroff said that he and his then partner Suzie Megroz still hadn't figured out how to make dough in quantity. She had told him that she knew how to make pizza, but it was really pastry dough for a French onion tart -- which looks like a little pizza. When the giant dough mixer and oven were finally in place, Sid experimented with the recipe that came with the mixer.

Suzie Harrison After eight years, the family of Simindokht Roshdieh finally knows the fate of the man who killed the wife and mother. Gilbert Garcia was sentenced Monday to life in prison. He was convicted Dec. 3 of her murder, which had taken place during a Feb. 20, 1995, robbery of a Laguna Beach Baskin-Robbins. Orange County Deputy Dist. Atty. Susan Schroeder said that the prosecution respects the jury's verdict, but it was disappointed that the jury did not support the death penalty in this case.

Every once in a while I see a wonderful reminder of the old Laguna, as I did yesterday — it made me smile and then laugh. Ice cream Wendy was driving down Coast Highway, in what was once a vehicle driven by our meter maids, and has now been retrofitted into a mobile ice cream machine. It's a kind of scooter, a three-wheel machine. I don't know what you'd call it, but "classic." In a time when most people are driving big fancy cars there's Wendy cruising the highway in her three-wheeler, with a little yellow siren on top, painted or plastered with stickers of the different types of ice cream that Wendy sells.

The Jog-a-Thon was March 30, organized by El Morro PTA, to raise funds for school programs. It is the biggest fundraiser of the year. The Laguna College of Art & Design is welcoming a new eco-friendly course, Project GREEN.

I had been pleased with myself lately. Things had been going well with my work. I felt sharp. At my mental peak. Then last Friday around 5 p.m. I drove down to China Bistro. I had a simple plan: I would make a to-go order, drive over to Albertson's, buy some groceries including some ice cream for Patti Jo, and then drive back to China Bistro and pick up the food order quickly so I'd make it home before the ice cream melted. It all worked perfectly until I carried the to-go order out to my car and found that my keys were gone.

The line at the Tony Roma's table extended out 10 feet, hands down the longest at Thursday night's second annual Taste of Burbank. And those hands would have been streaked with the barbecue sauce from the chicken legs and ribs being served by restaurant employees. Arleta resident Mike Shanto was among those who lined up for a sampling of Roma's fare. "I love the food and I love the city and the music," Shanto said. San Fernando Boulevard between Orange Grove Avenue and Magnolia Boulevard was closed down for the event.

Jason Kravetz said. Heermann’s gulls — an unusually aggressive species of Pacific Coast gull — are on the Audubon Society’s watch list for endangered or threatened birds, according to the society’s website. The suspected attacker, Dragan Djuric, 50, of Wichita, Kan., was cited for misdemeanor cruelty to animals in the incident at 2:53 p.m. Dec. 31, according to police records.

I went to the Orange County Fair for the first time Sunday, and it was a blast. Since moving here from Los Angeles about three years ago, I’ve been meaning to get to the fair, which is much more accessible than the Los Angeles County Fair way out in Pomona — I mean, that’s even past the Valley, and when I lived in Santa Monica I didn’t like to go east of Centinela, which is the eastern border of the city. (I was talking to another ex-LAite the other day who swore he never went east of Lincoln Boulevard — that’s the equivalent of Glenneyre Street in Laguna Beach — for at least 10 years while living on the “west side,” but I was never that provincial.
