2. Enjoy bona fide Italian pizza pies at the Urban Crust
Headed by pizza maestro and Sardinian-born Chef Salvatore, it’s hardly surprising that this inner-city Italian joint is home to some of the most authentic Mediterranean cooking in all of Plano.
The menu of mains ranges from mouth-watering platters of real Tuscan cold cuts to truffle-topped carpaccios, Caesar salads and the conspicuously Texan-influenced Cowboy ribeye.
However, it’s the pizzas that really take center stage, with the crusty, chewy pies mimicking the flavors of the trattorias lining the Bay of Naples. Regular deals and monthly set menus add to the mix, while a fine selection of wines from Piedmont, France, Argentina and the US is a welcome addition.
