The road map of Italy in Eric Lomando's head takes you to places untraveled and tastes unexplored. His mix of Italian, Italian-American and basically Lomandian dishes stirs up dining out in the neighborhood and miles around. You'll find a cozy, countrified eatery, a four-way experience where there's a long, communal table as well as a niche that fits a table for two; a rustic little dining area plus an airier main space. They suit Lomando's eclectic cuisine. --Peter M. Gianotti
