Chef Francesco Farris of Zio Cecio
Zio Cecio opens tonight for dinner at 4615 W. Lovers Lane. Chef Francesco Farris, formerly of Arcodoro/Pomodoro, is originally from Sardinia, and his new place is an "Italian affair with a Sardinian twist."

Mains include Mezzeluna Alla Fonduta Di Pistacchio, ravioli filled with seafood and ricotta in a pistachio cream sauce. Neri Alle Vongole has squid ink-infused spaghetti with fresh clams. There's also salmon, Cornish hen, aged rib eye, lamb chops, braised veal osso buco, risotto and pizza cooked in a handmade brick Renato Oven.

They've been pushing it as home-style cooking, but not like any home I've ever been in. That's why we go out, though, right?

Zio Cecio will be open seven days a week for dinner from 5 to 10 p.m.

My girlfriend and I dined there last night. Delicious! We will definitely return. The aged rib eye was to die for!

Sardinian Osso Buco, lamb chops and rib eye.  This guy has been a tool since he was on Cedar Springs.


I am so excited to have Francesco back in the kitchen! I am making my husband take me ASAP. His food always tastes so fresh and authentic!
