We are celebrating 4 years since the launch of DallasFoodNerd! DFN is a community project of a few (30+ now!) DFW-based nerds who happen to like food, probably a little too much! Do you have a restaurant that you would like to have featured? Reach out to the DFN founders @Elysa or @RoryEllis or email Foodie@dallasfoodnerd.com.

Italian

What do you call a fake noodle? … An impasta!

No fake noodles at these great Dallas restaurants. Only rich sauce, exquisite wine, and sweet gelato… Check them out for yourself!

 

Tagliata alla bolognese with veal, beef, and a creamy tomato sauce. One of my faves. -R #Italian
