Best Italian food in the city

Whether you're in the mood for pasta or other fine Italian fare, Dallas has exactly what you need.

Lucia

Treat yourself to a fine-dining experience at one of Dallas’ most beloved restaurants. Being both a favorite and intimate space, getting your foot in the door for a reservation at this Bishop Arts spot can be tricky and availability can be one to two months away – but it is oh so worth the wait. Be romanced by creative, hand-crafted pasta dishes on a frequently changing menu that promises something unique and delectable each visit.

Sprezza

Pasta making is an art, and Sprezza will make you a believer. This is a true slice of Italy wrapped in a lowkey, modern setting – all in our very own backyard of Oak Lawn. Each dish is crafted authentically and presented on a daily rotating menu, so there is always an opportunity to experience something entirely different. A popular go-to dish is the Ravioli di Ricotta, served with Roman Sunday gravy.

Terilli's

Located on Lower Greenville, this swanky Italian restaurant and bar has all the classics you know and love – shrimp scampi, fettuccini alfredo and much more. Not in the mood for pasta? Try one of their other delicious options, like the Italchos (Italian version of nachos) or lobster bisque. Terilli’s is also a prime spot for date night, with live music almost every evening and an extensive list of martinis to choose from.

Sassetta

Kickback at this casual yet stylish Italian eatery in the Design District for brunch, lunch or dinner! Choose from a diverse menu of salads, sandwiches, pizzas – and of course, pasta. We highly recommend the lasagna, and the goat cheese scarpinocc with brussels sprouts and mushrooms is a great vegetarian-friendly option.

Carbone's

Tucked between Oak Lawn and Highland Park is this charming little Italian-American eatery with a built-in wine bar and partial corner grocery store. The menu is short, so it’s hard to go wrong with any of the options. Their staple is spaghetti and meatballs, served with a delicious red sauce and perfectly al dente homemade pasta. They also serve up new specials every Sunday evening so there is always an excuse to visit a second, third, or tenth time!

Campisi's

A Dallas staple for more than 70 years, this family-owned restaurant has a long history of serving the best pizza and pasta around. Visit one of their many Dallas locations for a classic tasty of Italy.

Jimmy’s Food Store

This family-owned store and deli located in Old East Dallas has been in operation since 1966. Voted for the best Italian Sub and Muffuletta by The Dallas Observer, this authentic spot is not one to miss! On the menu you’ll find fine Italian sandwiches, cannoli’s, salads and plenty of Italian wine.

Partenope

This modern Downtown Dallas restaurant presents classic Italian dishes alongside contemporary options like the Keto Bolognese, perfect for the low-carb diner. Other favorites include the pesto fusilli, as well as more than a dozen pizza options.
