Reviews of Three Italian Restaurants in San Antonio, Texas

When most people think of food in Texas they think of barbecue.  Texas is known for some of the greatest barbecue in the world, but one cannot eat barbecue for every meal now can they.  San Antonio TX Hood Cleaning has been servicing the greater San Antonio, Texas area and surrounding cities for years.  They wanted to share three great Italian restaurants in San Antonio in this article.

San Antonio TX RestaurantCarrabba’s Italian Grill is located at 12507 I-10 W in San Antonio, Texas.  It was founded by two Sicilian boys, Johnny and Damian, who were raised in Texas.  Damian’s grandparents were born in Sicily in the 1870’s and immigrated to the United States in the late 1800’s to Galveston, Texas as did many Sicilians.

Two interconnected families, the Mandolas and the Carrabbas made it a priority to have large gatherings for christenings, graduations, funerals, births, weddings and any excuse to get the families together.  As they traveled by ship from Sicily, they met other families immigrating from other countries where they shared stories and food.  Thus, the beginning of Carrabba’s Italian Grill.

Today, Johnny and Damian enjoy the success of their restaurant and sharing their traditional Italian recipes with their customers.  They have close to a four and one-half-star rating on the world wide web with close to twelve hundred reviews.

Dough Pizzeria Napoletana is located at 6969 Blanco Road in San Antonio.  It was opened in November of 2007 by Doug and Lori Horn.  Both have a strong background in the restaurant and hotel business, so it was the perfect match to have Lori out front doing their marketing and Doug run the restaurant.San Antonio Texas Restaurant Pizza

They wanted to bring a unique style of pizza to San Antonio, so they focused on Southern Italian Cuisine from Naples, Italy.  In order to be a true Napoletana pizzeria, Doug and Lori had to study and become part of the Association of Neapolitan Pizzaoili which teaches the one hundred and fifty-year-old tradition of creating Neapolitan Pizza.  The idea for their name Dough Pizzeria Napoletana was a a little play on letters in Doug’s first and last name which can spell Dough.

Pretty sure with the two thousand three hundred and eighteen reviews online, Doug and Lori are doing a bang-up business.  They even opened a second location in beautiful Downtown San Antonio.

Located in the Downtown business district of San Antonio is Guillermo’s.  Owner, Guillermo, loves to share the rich history of San Antonio with his patrons by have collectable wall hangings celebrating some of the larger than life events that have taken place over the years.

Believe it or not, employees to this day say they hear footsteps, doors opening and even seeing shadows pass by when there is nobody there.  Not sure if any of the sixteen hundred people who posted positive posts can say they have experienced strange happenings, but they do love them enough to give them a four-plus-star rating.
