For a break from seafood, try lunch or dinner at this romantic Italian garden restaurant. There are 17 versions of thin-crust pizzas, plus fine homemade pastas and risotto. Vegetarians have lots of choices (if you can get past the thought that veal is on the menu), including an eggplant lasagna and interesting salads. They also serve some tasty seafood and meat dishes. At dinner, candles glimmer all through the garden and on tables grouped under thatched roofs. Spanish and Italian wines are available by the glass or bottle. It's open Tuesday through Sunday, 12 pm to 9:30 pm.
