On the pollo tortellini plate, grilled chicken backstrokes in a pool of creamy tomato sauce alongside a multitude of warm, cheese-stuffed inner tubes. Meanwhile, the breaded eggplant parmigiana hosts a dinner party for traditional marinara sauce and four kinds of cheese ($10.95 for lunch; $15.95 for dinner).

Loccino Italian Grill & Bar
Two Renaissance-style statues flank the doors of Loccino Italian Grill & Bar and set the scene for the comfortable-yet-lavish interior, where each secluded booth showcases an oversized painting and high-backed leather chairs add a touch of luxury. At both the wood-paneled bar and white-clothed tables, the wait staff ferries about cut-to-order steaks, margherita pizzas, chicken parmigiana, and grilled spareribs. Each of the 10 salads can be tossed with the restaurant’s signature housemade dressing to showcase fresh vegetables and convince children that sliced cucumbers can be more than just diving boards for forks. In fact, the cooks craft all their sauces in-house, from the tomato-spinach-olive-oil sauce that coats imported rigatoni and chicken to chablis-lemon-wine sauce that they splash over tilapia Mourlet.
