Two La Famiglias? Now I'm really confused....

Ok, a week or so ago I posted that I had eaten decent take out for lunch from a Sparks place called La Famiglia near the Great Basin Brewery..and mentioned it might be a good place for a chowdown. Well, Steve T. commented he had been less than impressed when HE ate I sort of gave up on the idea.......Anyway, I had thought that the restaurant was in downtown RENO, not Sparks...Then last night there was a TV review of a La Famiglia restaurant in downtown Reno.....Decided to check it out tonight: Its at the corner of First and Lake Streets. Well, word must be out; the place was hopping. No hope of getting a table without a reservation...The menu looked good, mostly Northern Italian, and didn't seem to be the same as the place in Sparks......and was certainy reasonable, so we will go back with a reservation....But I couldn't help but wonder: Are these two places at all related? Is it the same family? Anybody know?
