Contractors are busy transforming the former Taco Diner space in the Lake Highlands Town Center, and the new Cane Rosso won’t be completed by April 8, but founder Jay Jerrier, who also helms Cane Rosso locations in Carrollton, Frisco, Arlington and Fort Worth, says they’ll be hosting a pop up on Eclipse Day to give neighbors a preview of what they can expect.

Cane Rosso is famous for their specially built Italian ovens which reach 900 degrees and cook pizzas in less than two minutes. Their all-natural “00” flour is imported from Italy, and their fresh dough is made in-house daily.

PILF Restaurant Group owns Cane Rosso, along with Zoli’s NY Pizza and Thunderbird Pies. Bronx native Christian Petroni, winner of The Next Food Network Star is their new “Chief Culinary Commandante.”

“Authenticity is my superpower,” Petroni said when he joined PILF last month, “and the one thing in my life that had been missing — the thing that I was really yearning for — was the action of a restaurant. The act of hospitality, making somebody’s day — I love it.”

There’s no word yet on Cane Rosso Lake Highlands’ official grand opening date.
