David Levi has reopened Rossobianco, his restaurant at 3 Deering Ave., under the name Trattoria Fanny.

The restaurant is serving a simpler, more affordable menu than Rossobianco, and is named after Levi’s grandmother, Fanny Levi, who was born in Milan in 1908. Dinner dishes are all under $20, and include seafood stew in tomato broth and a veal cutlet with prosciutto and sage. Lunch will be served five days a week starting Wednesday. Most lunch plates are in the $8-$10 range and include dishes such as lasagna with meat sauce and béchamel, and a paté of salt-cured cod on toast.

The restaurant’s chef is Siddharta Rumma, whose family had a restaurant in Italy. Rumma has also worked at The Corner Room in Portland, and he helped open Eataly Boston.

Trattoria Fanny accepts reservations only for parties over six.

Lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, and dinner hours are 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Levi also owns Vinland, a restaurant that focuses solely on local foods, at 593 Congress St.
