For those of you in the South Mountain area who might be freaking out that family owned La Cucina Italiana, which opened last July, is no more, DON'T PANIC -- they've just changed their name to Our Family Bistro and their tagline from "South Mountain's Traditional Italian Restaurant" to "Steak - Seafood - Pasta - Pizza - Sandwiches." Per the website, the new name and tagline looks to combine the original restaurant with Under the Sea, a steak and seafood restaurant that opened in September in the back of the, er, original restaurant.
Our Family Bistro, led by chef and owner Andy Ibarra, will continue to offer the folks of South Mountain all-you-can-eat pizza nights on Wednesdays and Sundays for five dollars a person and buy-one-get-one-free entrees on Monday, along with a six-page menu with items folks have been asking for and (coming soon) breakfast and cartoons.
