Rockwall Restaurants

  • Bella Italian Ristorante

    Bella Italian Ristorante is a 'small town feel' restaurant – cosy and maybe a little outdated in its décor for such a thriving community. There is booth seating as well as tables with plastic print tablecloths and vases of plastic flowers. The usual fake windows on one wall with painted scenery behind and the lightening is perhaps a little to low...

  • Luigi's Italian Cafe

    Luigi's is a very popular and very good Italian restaurant just off the freeway in Rockwall. Run by two brothers from Northern Italy who sure know how to cook. It is very much a family affair with nephew and cousins all helping out. Plenty of staff, good service, an extensive menu and absolutely no complaints from us.. The choice of menu was...

    I'm not sure this would be a tourist trap but the cuteness would probably tempt a look and in the Texas heat, the ice would sure be a welcomed treat. You have to admit, its cute.

    Favorite thing: Rockwall is a fast growing city with Lake Ray Hubbard being a big draw card. There is plenty of shops and restaurants and the city maintains one of the lowest tax rates in Texas. Rockwall apparently has become known as a marriage mecca, because of the ease with which a marriage license can be obtained there.
