Need a GREAT Italian Restaurant near I-35E & George Bush interchange

  • 3

Anything close, along 35E north from there, or perhaps off the Tollway would be great. Looking for a really nice overall experience and great food and wine, hoping there is something local in that area, or something with a really authentic feel. Meeting old friends half way for a good evening of enjoying ourselves and don't know the area.

  1. The best (IMHO) near where you want and possibly, the best anywhere would be Amici Signature in "downtown" Carrollton at 1022 South Broadway.
    Sensational food cooked by celebrated chef owner Bartolino Cocuzza in a warm, romantic atmosphere. Yes, I'm a great fan! And, they're BYOB! http://www.amicisignature.com

    Otherwise, you might try Italian Villa Restaurant at 1012 Hebron Parkway in Carrollton. Less expensive and more family friendly "typical" Italian than Amici Signature which is more "continental" style and not terribly family oriented.

    1. Try http://www.mauriziositalian.com/ Maurizio's. actually owned by Italians. It's good enough that we wander over occasionally from George Bush & North Dallas Tollway. I would also agree that Amici is generally a good experience.

        First off, I wish to thank you for your replies. We were meeting friends who used to live near us and missed the local Italian eatery. We ended up lunching at Maurizio's and then dinner at Amici. Both were wonderful, though each in their own way. We kind of wished we'd visited Amici for lunch and Maurizio's for dinner as Maurizio's put us more in the mind of our local place. Amici was lovely but would probably enjoy it best with just my dear husband. Even so, we enjoyed great food, the service was great, and no one gave us the bum rush even though we really lingered.
