BEAUTIFUL MUSIC Richard's father Lareto would play his mandolin every night after supper when Richard was growing up and while dining at Puccini's you will hear soft arias of opera and Italian folk music. And don't be surprised when our beautiful and talented opera singer Johanna Fincher stops by frequently to shower us with her heavenly voice.
