Da Mario at The Star in Frisco takes tableside service up a notch.
Da Mario at The Star in Frisco prides itself on a true Italian experience. Its housemade pasta is a good place to start.

You may be working on your summer body, but may we suggest an interruption in the programming for something worth one more SoulCycle class? Here’s the reason: Da Mario’s fettuccine alla fiamma con tartufo—a reasonable portion of housemade pasta tossed with vodka sauce and black truffle shavings and served in a flaming 90-pound Parmigiano-Reggiano wheel from the riverside region between Parma and Reggio Emilia, where it’s aged for two to three years. Prepared tableside by Da Mario’s Milan-born executive chef, Luigi Iannuario, the meal’s savory bites can be enjoyed with sips of Amarone della Valpolicella while Iannuario lists off a culinary itinerary for your next Italian voyage. Of course, this meal needs to be bookended with Da Mario caprese (mozzarella di bufala from Campania with heirloom tomatoes and pesto), thinly sliced culatello and perhaps the cannoli filled with ricotta and chocolate chips. Until your travels, you can return to the masters at this destination at The Star for an authentic, fine dining experience that will leave you air-kissing in true Italian fashion. 6655 Winning Drive, Ste. 605, Frisco, 972.324.3055
