THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sfuzzi Restaurant Review

: Veteran diners may recall Sfuzzi as the trendy Northern Italian restaurant from the '90s that introduced pizzas topped with arugula in an ultra-stylish environment. However, those diners are unlikely to be found at this 2.0 version, revived by founder Robert Colombo in 2010. Just as it did in the early '90s, Sfuzzi’s current incarnation draws a younger crowd of singles in search of cocktails, good times and a light nosh. The cuisine is no longer as cutting edge as it used to be, but Dallas has wised up since then, leaving Sfuzzi content to serve reliable, slightly upscale Italian at a reasonable price: bruschetta topped with prosciutto and Gorgonzola, rigatoni with roasted corn and air-dried tomatoes, thin-crust pizza with bacon and a couple of lightly cooked eggs, or a starter like the salted garlic pretzel bread with mustard, barbecue sauce, chipotle jam, and a ramekin of cheese fondue. A customer-friendly selection of wines from the West Coast and Italy rises above the status quo, and is available in three options: glass, half carafe and bottle. But those committed to reliving the past will have to order the signature Sfuzzi Bellini, a fizzy-sweet mix of Prosecco and peach nectar.
