Houston’s First Cane Rosso Location is Now Open in the Heights

Houston’s First Cane Rosso Location is Now Open in the Heights

After a year’s worth of chatter, the wait is over — Cane Rosso is officially open in Houston. Over the years, the popular Neapolitan pizzeria, which originated from Dallas, has garnered a cult-like following in Houston. Thanks to its authentic Italian style pizzas and out-of-the box desserts that can only be found (and indulged upon) if you made the four-hour trek north, it’s no surprise that so many are clamoring to get their fill now that this outpost has debuted.

Perched on the corner of North Shepherd and West 19th, Cane Rosso joins other hot Heights newcomers like Hunky Dory and Southern Goods. The spacious restaurant houses a main dining room — the “Viper Room” — complete with faux snake skin walls and a full bar inviting guests to enjoy up close visuals of all of the pizza and pasta making action.

In addition to the 20+ wood-fired pizzas guests can choose from, insiders tell us that the tastiest dish at Cane Rosso is not even on the menu.

“The Honey Bastard pizza is one of the best things we have.” says Jeff Amador, director of marketing. “Everybody in Dallas already knows about it, so we just keep it off the menu.”

A one of a kind concoction topped with spicy prosciutto and habanero honey drizzle, the sweet and spicy Honey Bastard pizza is one off the menu dish that won’t likely stay a secret for long in Houston either.

Other mouthwatering selections include the traditional Margherita, the Che Cazzo, a trust your pizzaiolo pie with a promise of spice, and the Joan Marie crafted with goat cheese and roasted jalapeño pesto.

Selections from the dessert menu are equally delectable with obvious choices like the Texas-sized s’mores calzone, served sliced and ready to share, and the Italian doughnuts, otherwise known as Zeppole, served piping hot in a paper bag with chocolate and caramel dipping sauces.

With no signs of slowing down, Cane Rosso is moving full speed ahead with plans to open its second Houston location in Montrose later this year.

The ex-service station sitting on the sliver of land edged by N. Durham Dr., W. 16th St., and Nashua St. is being remodeled and repainted, with signage already in place for burger bar Balls Out. The late-sixties space, home to the Guero Deluxe Car Wash before Re:Vive Development snapped up the property in 2015, was occupied by used car dealership Sabinas Cars and Trucks a few years before that.
