I heard my favorite pizza place in Dallas closed recently. Any buzz on why or where and when they are going to reappear?

    Last I heard, they are still open on Wednesdays at Times Ten Cellars, and are considering adding additional nights there. And they're looking for a permanent location, but haven't found anything yet.

      Looks like they're looking into opening a FW location, also at Times Ten.

        Hi all...Yes Cane Rosso is indeed closed at Preston/Forest. It was a very popular and successful spot for us - but the owners of Chocolate Angel ultimately wanted too much control over the business we built, so I decided to shut it down vs. give up the business. We will continue at Times Ten Dallas on Wednesdays beginning 7/7 and we'll add a day at Times Ten FW as well TBD. We will open up a permanent spot...still working on some locations. As CocoaNut said...check out website, Facebook fan page, and twitter feed (@canerosso) for updates.

        We really appreciate everyone's support and we will definitely be back.

          Jay, I appreciate you keeping us posted on your future plans. I am hoping that when you are able to find a permanent location that you are better able to control quality. I have eaten about 10 of your pizzas over the last several months. I would say that 4 of them were excellent, and the other 6 had issues ranging from being undercooked, to the toppings being out of balance as well as underseasoned. Because of your certified status, and the price of your pizzas I would hope to have a better than 40% chance of a good pizza.

            Best of luck with the transition. We are definitely fans.

            I'm looking forward to my Il Cane Rosso pizza tomorrow night at Times Ten Cellars.

                  I'm having a feeling it might be a little crowded on 7/7!
