Dallas Observer's Description

Think Italian fast food, and pizza and its inside-out cousin calzone come to mind. Porta di Roma, located on the first floor of the Wilson Building, has those in all their gooey, saucy splendor. (Both are good, big and reasonably priced.) Better still, this buffet-like restaurant serves up a wide variety of pasta dishes, cooked up fresh, fast and hot as you order. The pasta is al dente; the marinara strikes a perfect balance between sweet and acidic, and most everything on the menu is less than seven bucks. Plus, the scent of garlic sautéed in olive oil suffuses the joint, making a perfect combination downtown lunch spot and aromatherapy spa.

    Не нужно посещать итальянский ресторан в Техасе! Итальянцы монут узнать много новых блюд, например пиццебургер с сыром и кетчупом!))))

    My favorite is Penne alla vodka! (special order)

    don't eat here, it sucks.

  • Barbara K. on 04/22/12

    Even when it's not busy they ignore you, no one greets you! Gave them 3 minutes, then got up and left, passed 2 servers and no one said anything!! Worst customer service I have had!!

    The cannelloni is just AMAZING! Eating outside is an interesting experience. Watch the city go by as you enjoy your meal.
