This isn’t your old favorite Italian-American restaurant, but if good red sauce is what you’re craving this may be your new one. Julian Barsotti, the chef behind the lauded regional Italian cooking of Nonna, offers everything from tasty Caesar salads to juicy meatballs in his offering in Highland Park. During lunch, you’ll find a deli with some of the best hero sandwiches you can get in Dallas. At night, the space changes to a full-service, sit-down restaurant. The pasta upholds Barsotti’s reputation for noodle nirvana, but roast sausage with polenta and other meaty plates are worth a look too. Don’t skip dessert. Light and fluffy cheese fills an impossibly crunchy canoli and a semifreddo put your standard tiramisu to shame.
