The spaghetti-Western film genre is noted for its good use of extreme close-ups, its bad use of tomato sauce during gunfights, and its ugly use of Clint Eastwood’s puppetry skills.

The gustatory alchemists at Lunardi's Ristorante turn palate-pleasing ingredients into authentic Italian appetizers and entrees. The evening begins with toasty bruschetta topped with a seasonal tapenade spread, and brought to the table by certified non-android servers. Patrons can then debate over the relative deliciousness of the various pasta and secondi dishes on the menu. Tuck into the shrimp aglio olio, pan-seared shrimp, roasted garlic, roasted tomatoes, and spinach all spinning over parallel bars of tender spaghetti and nodding to the house salad on the sidelines. Vino-laden vittles include the chicken venti, a light combination of chicken, banana peppers, and sweet peppers sautéed with white wine and garlic, and the veal marsala, which bathes tender veal, mushrooms, roasted red peppers, and spinach in a marsala-wine sauce.
The framed art on Lunardi's walls turn the intimate space into a colorful feast for the eyes, and allows comrades to use impressive words such as "chiaroscuro" during games of I Spy.
The chefs of Lunardi's Ristorante bring the flavors of Sicily and Milan across the Atlantic to top plates of succulent meats and pastas with parmigiana, pesto, and marsala sauces. Their creations add pops of color to white marble-topped tables that, along with the dining room’s art-covered walls, impart a feeling of being well taken care of before a waiter even sidles up to the table.
