The operators of Facci, a casual Italian restaurant with locations in Laurel and Ellicott City, have opened a third restaurant in Howard County. Gino Palma is the chef behind Facci. He is Italian, but his wife, Pilar, is Peruvian (as are their business partners at Pisco, Carmen and Francisco Acevedo). "We've been married for 14 years, and we've been together for 18 years. We have always wanted to do this," Palma said. "I've learned more and more about Peruvian cuisine. The good thing about Peruvian food is that it's similar to something that American people will eat every day." Pisco, open daily for lunch and dinner, is at 6630 Marie Curie Drive in Elkridge.
