Craft beer and pizza is coming to the new Park Village Shopping Center in Southlake. Taverna Rossa, a project from the pizza-centric restaurant group that owns Cadillac Pizza Pub and Palio's Pizza Cafe, will open in April, according to a press release. This will be Taverna's second location, with the original located at Lakeside Market in Plano.
Taverna's specialties are "rustic thin-crust pizzas baked in a stone-fired oven and Texas-influenced Italian dishes," according to the release, and the 4,200-square-foot restaurant will also have 30 craft beers on tap. That's not the only thing on tap — there will be four wine taps behind the bar as well, according to the release. Who doesn't love a freshly pulled Pinot Gris?
The space will also include a 1,500-square-foot patio, an indoor live music stage and a menu featuring local ingredients like Italian sausage from Luscher's Red Hots. This is unsurprising, of course, since Brian Luscher helped craft Taverna Rossa's menu when it first opened in Plano.
