Patrons can choose fried calamari and any of a number of everyday pasta dishes, but diners can also get double-take menu options. These include the crab claws in garlic butter sauce and the Southwest linguini with Italian sausage, red onion, green pepper and mushrooms in a chipotle cream sauce. The pizzas at this family restaurant with old-world charm are heralded among the best in Dallas. Thin crusted, the emphasis here is on pizza customization. Aside from the usual toppings (pepperoni and mushroom) available, diners can choose from traditional Italian items, like anchovies, artichoke hearts and pine nuts. House specialties include biggin's like the "All the Way" pizza and the pasta combo of lasagna, ravioli with spaghetti and meatballs.
