Cane Rosso has finally opened in Arlington!


VPN pizza darling Cane Rosso has finally opened its new Arlington location, the eighth in the burgeoning Dallas-based chain. The restaurant was slated to open last spring but Covid put the kibosh on that. The restaurant is located in Arlington’s Urban Union District, a neighborhood already populated with fan favorites such as Hurtado Barbecue, Cartel Taco Bar and Legal Draft Brewing Company.

“Urban Union has a bunch of cool, old buildings like we were looking for when we opened the first Cane Rosso,” company owner Jay Jerrier said. “The old Joe’s Radiator building had a lot of things that I like: roll-up garage doors, a big outdoor patio area, and lots of room for string lights. And we think being one mile from both major sports stadiums will make this place a good hang on gamedays.”

Don’t adore Cane Rosso’s floppy-pointed VPN pizzas? That’s OK. The company’s chefs, Jeff Bekavic and Lee Hunzinger, smartly populated the menu with far more than Neapolitan pizzas. Items like crisp-edged Sicilian and Granma pizzas, brisket lasagna, a stellar hamburger, calzones and fresh pastas may be even better than the round pies. On the other hand, maybe you need to eat a few more VPN pizzas before you can fully appreciate Hunzinger’s talents; he’s widely regarded as one of the best pizzaioli in the US. And Bekavic? One of the most talented (yet relatively unheralded) chefs in Texas.

The Arlington Rosso is currently open for dinner service only but expects to expand to lunch and weekend brunch quickly. The company has locations in Fort Worth, Dallas, Austin and Houston.
