Aimal Formoli, chef and co-owner of his self-named restaurant in East Sacramento, has the serious, bespectacled look of a scholar (though it must be added, one who’s seriously into tattoos). Suzanne Ricci, his wife and business partner, has thick dark hair, a wide smile that could guide ships to safety and a raucous laugh.
