Italian restaurant Bocce is now open in the old Inforzato's space on Davis Street, reports Oak Cliff Advocate (adjacent to dive bar Oak Cliff Social Club).
Despite its name, Bocce does not actually have a bocce ball court (you'll have to go to San Salvaje, Bryan Street Tavern or Vagabond to play that), but it does have an expansive menu of Italian-American fare and a major bonus: a BYOB policy.
Familiar dishes like eggplant and chicken parm, housemade gnocchi, cannelloni, lasagna, and fettucine alfredo share the menu with slightly more unusual items including beer-battered artichoke hearts (Bocce uses the Italian beer Moretti) served with lemon-garlic-sage aioli, a porchetta hero, Philly cheesesteak and Chicago beef sandwiches, and something called spadini, which the menu explains as a "deep-fried mozzarella sandwich topped with a lemon butter sauce capers and olives." There's also three different styles of pizza (New York-style thin, Chicago-style deep dish, and Sicilian-style hand-tossed) and, oddly enough, chicken wings, available with two different sauces (garlic butter lemon pepper or "Nani's" secret hot wing sauce).
Per Advocate, Bocce's hours are 4-10 p.m. Monday through Sunday; grand opening festivities will take place this weekend.
