La Juntans have something new to salivate over following the opening of Anthony Martinez’s Papa GiGi’s Italian Grill. The Italian restaurant that officially opened on Oct. 4 can be found off U.S. 50 at 27866 Frontage Road. Martinez, the owner, said it had been his lifelong goal to open an Italien restaurant in the spirit of his late grandmother, who used to own a local Italian restaurant called Carducci’s.
