D'Carlo - Closed

3300 Oak Lawn Ave. Dallas, TX 75219 | Uptown & Oak Lawn | 214-443-9420

Location Description:

Native Sicilian Daniele Puleo has created a romantic space, popular for wedding proposals, to which guests descend a flight of stairs from the street. Ignore the fact that the ingredients in Puleo's signature spinach salad (sautéed mushrooms, caramelized onions, crisp pancetta, feta cheese and spinach dressed with balsamic vinaigrette) can get wedged between teeth. The candlelit ambiance will disguise it. The 25-table dinner-only eatery, opened in 2004 as Daniele Osteria, isn't just a date spot. The tables are filled with families, small groups and friends. D'Carlo is also popular with Japanese. Who knew? Many of them are fans of the chef's adherence to traditional Italian foodways from the vongole e cozze and gnocchi Gorgonzola to the pizza and torta della nonna
