As I sit at my desk a sudden craving for pizza has overcome me. This instantly reminded me that it's been sometime since we've updated our list for Best Pizza in Dallas, here on City of Ate. Things have changed a touch since we last updated that list. Even though it's still a little short, there's a ... More >>
Since Il Cane Rosso opened in Deep Ellum in 2011, it has been one of Dallas' favorite pizza spots. Guy Fieri even made a stop there for an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, which made the wait lines for authentic Neapolitan pizza even longer.
As reported last week, owner Jay Jerrier is also ... More >>
A while ago I checked in with Jay Jerrier from Cane Rosso to see how his appearance on Diners Drive-ins and Dives would shape the future of his pizza business. He told us he'd taken control of the space next door and would turn it into additional seating for the restaurant as well as some lounge spa ... More >>
Last night was Industry Night at Il Cane Rosso, and the kids (Jeffers and Zielke) from Smoke and Bolsa were serving up pie. Local and delicious were the themes.
The bar stools across the pizza pit directly in front of the mouth of the big red alien-like oven are the best seats in the house on any ... More >>

Broken down by category, these are City of Ate's five favori ... More >>
Lauren Drewes DanielsToday I tracked down the new food truck Gennarino's, which serves Neapolitan-style fried food and is owned by three brothers from Naples, Italy. It's just their second day in business and they were parked between two office buildings in Irving just off of Hwy 161. They'd be p ... More >>
3 Men and a Taco's highly prized Dallas Food Permit. Yesterday I spoke with two DFW-area food trucks about their plans to hit the streets in Big D. Gennarino's is a Neapolitan-style friggitoria owned by three brothers from Naples, Italy. And SoCal Tacos serves up classic southern Cali tacos, ... More >>
Speaking of Preston Hollow pizza ...
For a place so reluctant to give interviews leading up to its opening yesterday, Dough Pizzeria managed no shortage of coverage on its first day. That may have something to do with the strong reputation of its original location, in San Antonio, which is ... More >>
The Triple 'Roni: a signature dish, but better that triple pork?I was at Fireside Pies up north, trying to slow-play a pizza dinner to make it feel like an Actual Saturday Night. I'd perused the very attractive menu and settled on my pizza: the Pork Pie. I chose this because it is called the ... More >>
Julian Barsotti of NonnaTo say food is in Julian Barsotti's blood would be a preposterous understatement. His grandmother co-owned Carbone's in New Jersey, run by the same family for 92 years. His relatives on his father's side brought along more relatives when they came to the United States ... More >>

When you think of pizza meccas, we'll bet dollars to garlic knots you think of New York, Chicago and, of course, Naples, from whence came the delightful chow. (Let's just forget about California, shall we?) Dallas should be added to the list. Yes, the Big D!
