Italia Express has been stealthily moving into Oak Lawn, receiving only a small write-up in the Dallas Voice that pointed to an unrelated restaurant with the same name in the Design District.
The recently installed sign is anything but quiet, though. A massive red, white and green marquee emblazoned with the restaurant's name is crowned with an obese Italian caricature that looks ready to pinch your partner's ass while serving you a pie.
The restaurant is taking over the old Macho Nacho space that closed despite a sexy plate of queso-covered sweet potato fries.
Italia Express is the second location of a cafe in Cedar Hill that features pizza by the slice, sandwiches and salads and based on its website and pictures resembles something like a mom and pop Sbarro's Shopping mall pizza is coming to Cedar Springs Road. Friday nights will never be the same.
