CAMPISI’S RESTAU­RANT Ital­ian. Campisi’s is a Dal­las clas­sic and one of the old­est eater­ies around (since 1946, to be ex­act) that you just can’t miss. Noted for some of the best crispy pizza in town, this Ital­ian restau­rant also serves up toasted ravi­oli and spaghetti and meat­balls that warm the belly and the heart. Mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions. www. camp­i­sis.us. CANE ROSSO Pizza. Cer­ti­fied piz­zaioli Jay Jer­rier has rein­vig­o­rated pizza in DFW with crispy, chewy crusts, imag­i­na­tive top­pings (think spicy ba­con mar­malade) and a strict “no ranch” rule. Be sure to end your meal with a s’mores cal­zone. Mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions. www.il­canerosso.com. LUCIA Ital­ian. Vis­i­tors to this highly ac­claimed Ital­ian fa­vorite in the Bishop Arts District would do well to make reser­va­tions ahead of time to en­sure seat­ing. It’s well worth it. Lucia’s evolv­ing sea­sonal menu boasts some of the most divine in­gre­di­ents avail­able, and the del­i­cate and full-fla­vored dishes defy cat­e­go­riza­tion. www.lu­ci­adal­las.com. 408 W. 8th St., 214.948.4998. NONNA TATA Ital­ian. This cash-only, home­style Ital­ian eatery serves up au­then­tic dishes that you would be hard-pressed to find out­side of Italy it­self. Freshly baked fo­cac­cia bread is the per­fect ac­com­pa­ni­ment to the hand-rolled pasta. Don’t for­get to BYOB. 1400 W. Mag­no­lia Ave., Fort Worth, 817.332.0250. PIC­COLO MONDO Ital­ian. In a land filled with South­west­ern cui­sine, a good Ital­ian restau­rant pro­vides a nice change of pace. This Arlington lo­ca­tion serves it up with a nod to­wards the clas­sics. www.pic­colomondo.com. 829 E. La­mar Blvd., Arlington, 817.265.9174. SAINT ROCCO’S NEW YORK ITAL­IAN Ital­ian. Lo­cated in the Trin­ity Groves devel­op­ment at the base of the Mar­garet Hunt Hill bridge, Saint Rocco’s is the brain­child of Dal­las’ Phil Ro­mano, an East Coast na­tive with a pas­sion for food and fam­ily. The menu in­cludes fresh, com­fort­ing sta­ples with a con­tem­po­rary twist (like a de­con­structed Si­cil­ian lasagna) and a wel­com­ing, white table­cloth at­mos­phere rem­i­nis­cent of Ital­ian restau­rants in the Big Ap­ple. www.sain­troc­cos.com. 3011 Gulden Lane, Ste. 100, 469.320.9707.
