Cane Rosso, the beloved Dallas pizzeria, is invading Austin by taking over the defunct Uchi Group’s St. Philip space in Sunset Valley. The pizza empire is also bringing Cow Tipping Creamery under its belt to help the ice cream truck open a brick and mortar in the former bakeshop area. The truck will remain open, too. Of the location, owner Jay Jerrier said in a statement:
"We originally had looked at Austin sites about 2 years ago, but never could find the right fit. When the St. Philip space became available, the layout and location was a great match for both Cane Rosso and Cow Tipping Creamery. In addition, the size of the kitchen and the additional deck pizza ovens could allow us to bring some exciting new things to the table for the first time, in Sunset Valley. So, everything really fell into place with this spot."
This will be the Neapolitan pizza sensation’s ninth location in Texas, with five in Dallas and two forthcoming spots in Houston. Jerrier opened the first Cane Rosso in 2011 in Deep Ellum. Permitting for the new Austin space begins this week with a projected opening date sometime this year.
