Lombardi Cucina is a new Italian restaurant open at The Star in Frisco and should be next on your list for a fine dining evening! We’re sharing all the details from the modern Italian food to the phenomenal space, decor, and hospitality!
Updated February 2022
Lombardi Cucina Italiana is the newest spot from Lombardi Family Concepts, who is behind restaurants you already know and love including Toulouse, Taverna and Bistro 31 to name a few! And the opening comes just in time to celebrate their 45th anniversary this year!
The menu features classic Italian dishes with an elevated and modern twist. We started with the wagyu meatballs and the Panzerotti Brasiti, which is their take on Italian pot stickers, and both were delicious! For mains, the 36 oz. porterhouse is incredible and comes lit on fire for an impressive table side show. You can also stay classic with dishes like Cacio E Pepe! To finish, opt for the giant serving of house-made gelato with hot chocolate and pistachio crumble!
No Italian dish is complete without wine, and you’ll find an extensive wine list from Italy and beyond! They also offer some great cocktails including an espresso martini (always a fave) and the Instagrammable Il Fiore, which comes poured over a frozen pink rose!
The dining room has a modern Italian feel to it with olive trees in the center that create a romantic garden-like atmosphere. Every detail is absolutely stunning from the chandeliers and wood paneling on the ceiling to the surrounding wine cellars and curved booths. You’ll also find fresh fish on display surrounded by copper pots and wicker baskets showing fresh fruits and vegetables that make you feel like you’re taking a peek into a cozy Italian kitchen.
So, whether it's for date night or just for fun, make your plans and reservations to escape to Italy and check out the fabulous Lombardi Cucina Italiana!
