Dining Guide

Cane Rosso

This small Dallas-based chain has a cult following, and now the Heights welcomes Houston’s first outpost, which serves more than twenty inventive, wood-fired pies as well as sandwiches, pastas, and salads. We enjoyed appetizers of creamy burrata with arugula and big meatballs in marinara with Parmesan, but the star of the show is the soft, tender Neapolitan-style pizza, made with fine-textured 00-grade flour and mozzarella hand-pulled onsite. Although we were tempted to try all of the meat-based pies, we stuck to the Luana, plastered with local sausage, San Marzano tomatoes, mushrooms, and mozzarella, and the Paulie Gee, with hot soppressata, caramelized onions, Calabrian chiles, and basil. Non-meat eaters should snag the lighter Special K, with roasted grape tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, and olive oil. All delicious! Canine lovers, note the small, dog-friendly patio.
