Best Italian Restaurants In Dallas / Fort Worth




Ferrari's Italian Villa

Grapevine, TX 76051
(817) 251-2525

14831 Midway Road
Addison, TX 75001

The Secchi family, formerly of Sardinia, Italy, opened Ferrari's in 1983. The warm Focaccia Bread starts your meal with an Italian flavor. Conversely, you can end your meal with a show if you order the Bananas Francesco for dessert. (Expect for everyone in the restaurant to want a taste when see the display and smell the dish.) The Cannelloni Alla Fiorentina and Gnocchi Della Mama are both quite tasty.





Multiple restaurants across the Metroplex. (Check the website for locations.)

With locations across the Metroplex, it's not hard to a Patrizio Pizza, Pasta & Vino, and when you do, you'll want to go back. Whether you sit in the dining room or on the breezy patio, options on the menu range from traditional spaghetti to a Grilled Vegetable Plate with asparagus, tomatoes, peppers and almonds in a white wine sauce. Don't miss trying the Spicy Penne Arrabiata, a dish with grilled Italian sausage, red peppers and basil.




Scalini's Pizza and Pasta

2021 Abrams Road
Dallas, TX 75214
(214) 821-8088

3610 Shire Blvd,
Richardson, TX 75082
(972) 398-6000

Scalini's has been a Lakewood staple for decades and has opened a location in Richardson. The pizza has thin crust and the freshest of toppings. If you want traditional staples get the Scalini Combo Plate, with lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs, and ravioli. If you live in the area, and are to tired/lazy to get out of the house, Scalini's also delivers anything on the menu.





Expect a small, warm room and a taste of Italy in each bite at Taverna. While the restaurants, Uptown in Dallas and Sundance Square in Fort Worth, boast most about their pizza and risotto there are also a number of wonderful pasta and other dishes available. The Lobster Risotto is a must and the Scampi Tagliolini, with shrimp, garlic, white wine and tomatoes, are treats for all. Weekend brunch features $1.00 Mimosas and Bellinis, with the purchase of an entrée.
