Alberto Lombardi, founder and president of Lombardi Family Concepts, will be bringing back his namesake, a new concept called Lombardi Cucina Italiana, in celebration of his 45th Anniversary as a restaurateur. As a longstanding fixture in the local restaurant industry, Lombardi will bring the same sense of community to Lombardi Cucina Italiana as he has to his many other successful restaurants, such as Toulouse, Taverna, KĀI, Bistro, Lounge 31 and Penne Pomodoro.
The atmosphere at Lombardi Cucina Italiana, opening at The Star Frisco in early 2022, will remind you of an open-air villa in Italy surrounded by olive trees, Italian marble and Venetian chandeliers. The menu will be a celebration of authentic Italian cuisine with a modern touch, led by LFC’s Culinary Team, Alfio Longo (LFC Director of Culinary) and Ty Thaxton (LFC Corporate Chef). The menu will feature a large selection of ‘fatto a mano’ pastas, which will be produced daily in an open style ‘pasta laboratorio’ and an extensive array of fresh fish, meats and produce. With a vast selection of worldly wines and handcrafted signature cocktails, Lombardi Cucina Italiana will offer a curated beverage program that appeals to every palate.
