Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

1. Lucia

Copy Link
408 W 8th St
Dallas, TX 75208
(214) 948-4998
Visit Website
Even if you don't feel like dropping a couple hundred bucks on dinner, you can show up early and snag a bar seat at Lucia for a pasta feast by culinary wizard David Uygur. The ever-rotating selections are priced in the mid-teens for smaller-size portions, so try a few; expect to find things like cavatelli with basil-almond pesto and cherry tomatoes, or Swiss chard and ricotta mezzalune with chicken hearts.

2. Nonna

4115 Lomo Alto Dr
Dallas, TX 75219
(214) 521-1800
Visit Website
Julian Barsotti knows a thing or two about noodles, obviously. All the pasta here is handmade; lobster ravioli and tagliatelle with rich meaty Bolognese sauce are menu staples, and the rest of the options rotate with the seasons (think chittarini with Gulf shrimp, zucchini and fennel pollen).

3. Tei-An

Copy Link
1722 Routh St., Suite 110
Dallas, TX 75201
(214) 220-2828
Visit Website
Masterfully handmade soba noodles are the name of the game at Tei-An, and the array of choices can be mind-boggling: Soba carbonara? Duck soba? Green soba bolognese? Probably best to order a couple different options; there are also chilled varieties that are mighty refreshing during the sweltering summer months.

4. Cane Rosso

2612 Commerce St
Dallas, TX 75226
(214) 741-1188
Visit Website
Cane Rosso is obviously known for its Neapolitan pies, but they also turn out some mean pasta dishes like handmade tortellini, gnocchi with bolognese, and even squid carbonara.

5. Nonna Tata

1400 W Magnolia Ave
Fort Worth, TX 76104
(817) 332-0250
Visit Website
It's small, crowded and cash only, and you have to bring your own wine (not to mention wine glasses), but for Italian food fiends, it's worth it. Not all the pastas here are handmade, but the filled pastas are -- think cappelacci stuffed with red-wine braised beef, gnocchi with fresh tomato sauce or pumpkin ravioli.

6. Royal China

Copy Link
6025 Royal Ln, Ste 201
Dallas, TX 75230
(214) 361-1771
Visit Website
The best tables at Royal China are the ones that offer a view of the noodle/dumpling bar area, where you can watch the resident noodle master at work (and he's quite the showman). Don't miss the henan lu-rou lamian, thick-cut noodles in a rich pork belly and mushroom sauce.

7. MoMo Italian Kitchen

Copy Link
8989 Forest Ln, Ste 130
Dallas, TX 75243
(972) 234-6800
Visit Website
North Dallas gem MoMo is the perfect place to satisfy a pasta craving. The trenette col pesto is made with thin, toothsome ribbons of housemade egg noodles, garnished with pine nuts and grated parm. Also worthwhile are the handmade agnolini stuffed with asparagus and speck.

8. Carbone's

4208 Oak Lawn Ave.
Dallas, TX 75219
(214) 522-4208
Visit Website
Nonna's more casual (and less expensive) sibling also has plenty of housemade noodle options, such as fresh fettucine in a slow-cooked "Sunday gravy." You can also grab packages of handmade pastas to cook at home, like spinach-ricotta raviolini.

9. Monkey King Noodle Co.

Copy Link
3014 Main St
Dallas, TX 75226
(469) 206-3658
Visit Website
Loyal Monkey King fans line up daily for the amazing hand-pulled noodles. The spicy beef noodle soup is a must, and the dandan noodles with ground pork, ginger and garlic are also excellent.

10. Neighborhood Services

5027 W Lovers Ln
Dallas, TX 75209
(214) 350-5027

If you haven't already filled up on fried asparagus and flatbread, try NHS's handmade noodles. The special changes daily, but it's typically some sort of wide-cut pasta ribbons -- think fettucine amatriciana or pappardelle with three-meat bolognese or even brisket.

2731 White Settlement Road
Fort Worth, TX 76107
(817) 882-8065

The pasta special at this Fort Worth gem changes daily, but the noodles are always made fresh in house: Think tagliatelle with meaty pork ragu or rich carbonara.
