Lumi is good when you want to chat, be coddled and not think much about the food. Calamari and zucchini are fried and paired with a chunky marinara sauce; lamb chops are tender. But spinach salad with walnuts was marred by a rancid-tasting oil, and pretty but flavorless squares of herbed pasta were tossed in an underseasoned mix of fava beans, peas and straight-from-the-bag baby carrots. And even if Lumi is on the Upper East Side, no place should be able to get away with charging $8.50 for a plate of biscotti.
