2412 S Interstate 35E
|Same as Rocky's Sports Bar and Luigi's Pizza Italian Restaurant|
Italia Cafe was an Italian restaurant in Denton. It was owned by the same people as Rocky's Sports Bar and Luigi's Pizza Italian Restaurant. As of May 2012, signs were hanging on the windows explaining the property had been sold and for patrons to instead visit Luigi's.
The space was previously one of Denton's many Chinese buffet restaurants, but closed down and was redone in 2010.
While the food was consistently good and the ambiance was really quite romantic, the restaurant never seemed to draw more than a few customers at a time. How it was able to survive for several years with limited business remains an oddity, causing some to wonder if it was really a front for the Mob. But since the Mob does not actually exist, people do not actually talk about it.
