The remodeled mall in Far North Dallas has a new pizzeria, Cane Rosso

Neapolitan pizzeria Cane Rosso has opened in Hillcrest Village, the resurrected mall near Hillcrest and Arapaho roads in far north Dallas.

Cane Rosso on Arapaho Road in Far North Dallas occupies one street corner, making it one of the most visible restaurants in Hillcrest Village.

Cane Rosso was born in Deep Ellum and spread to seven locations in Dallas-Fort Worth. It was the first restaurant in Dallas to offer Neapolitan-style pizza, known for its blistered crust, cooked hot and quickly in 900-degree ovens.

Since the restaurant was established over 10 years ago, they have added pasta, gluten-free dough, and a larger list of entrees. One of its bestsellers is the Honey Bastard pizza, a white pie topped with mozzarella, warm soppressata, bacon marmalade and habanero honey.

One of the reasons owner Jay Jerrier opened Cane Rosso in Hillcrest Village was because of the 1.5-acre park in his front yard. This park sprawls down the middle with a row of restaurants on either side – a welcome change from the drab mall of yesteryear.

Jerrier plans to feed customers in Richardson, North Dallas, Addison and southern parts of Plano at this new restaurant.

Other restaurants in Hillcrest Village include: Brass Tap, Haystack Burgers and Don Pepe’s Rancho Mexican Grill.

Cane Rosso is at 6959 Arapaho Road, Dallas. It opened on June 14, 2022.
