The restaurant is by Lombardi Family Concepts, a Dallas-based company with a portfolio that includes a handful of Taverna restaurants in Texas and a Romagna Mia in Vegas at the Miracle Mile Shops inside Planet Hollywood.
Laguna Beach's Taverna will feature risotto—its flagship dish—using Carnaroli rice and pizzas baked in a "woodstone oven."
