THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Reggiano's Restaurant Review: Reggiano’s has never quite lived up to the promise of its visually impressive kitchen and handsome interior, but now that the fickle singles set has found new fodder on Loop 1604, perhaps there’s reason to retrench. The ambitious menu certainly suggests another look with appetizers such as beef carpaccio with truffle oil and layered crab cakes with peppers, avocado and grilled corn relish. Multiple mushrooms, including a grilled portobello, adorn the wild mushroom fettuccine with a Parmesan cream sauce. And entrées are exemplified by such dishes as the steamed scallops in a Champagne sauce with basil; and an inventive take on the standard saltimbocca with added potato gnocchi and a sage velouté. There are even meatballs (on fettuccine, however) for the traditionalist, and the wine list is broad enough to meet the menu’s challenges. When it comes to dessert, the lofty and lush tiramisu might just as well be sampled; you can always cut the cream with stout shots of grappa.
