We agree with Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, Il Cane Rosso's deliciously addictive pizzas, with wood-fired crusts and top-notch artisanal ingredients, are arguably among the best in the country. And according to the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana, these orbs, specifically the Neapolitan, are as good as you can find in Italy. Even more tasty are the pizzas that come with unique toppings; especially the Delia, with house-made mozzarella, arugula and bacon marmalade. Along with pizzas, you'll find other savory things to chomp into, ranging from fried artichokes to sandwiches and hand-crafted pastas. Just as rustic as its food is the restaurant's charming decor featuring exposed brick walls, rafter ceilings and Moulin Rouge style chandeliers. Grab a seat at the bar where you can watch the pizzas sizzle in the wood-burning oven, or head out to the dog friendly patio to enjoy even more of the local vibe.
- Deep Ellum's Best Restaurants: "Order the Honey Badger pizza, an off-menu specialty with mozzarella, soppressata, basil and habanero honey drizzled on top. Also take note that Wednesdays are BYOB."
- Best for Deep Ellum's Best Restaurants Because: Il Cane Rosso's pizzas are said to the some of the best in the country.
