It is going to be very difficult to get a seat in this restaurant once the word gets out about this pizza. Urban Crust is the newest and hippest addition to downtown Plano. It features a wood-fire pizza oven and a chic rooftop bar. Already well-known the rooftop bar, 32 degrees, is an ice bar with liquor taps that pour Grey Goose, Patron Silver, and Jagermeister at -5 degrees. On the bottom floor, where the entrance is located, you can order your pizza and watch them make it or you can watch one of the HD TVs which seem to hang everywhere you turn. Each booth has it's own HD TV.
During our visit, co-owner and Master Chef Salvatore Gisellu actually stopped by our table during our visit to make sure we liked our pizza. It was so comforting to get such friendly service rather than the typical turn and burn that most restaurants emphasize. I would like to use this opportunity to mention that they have the best calamari I have ever had! I brought some home for my husband and he loved it too. They also serve a pita type bread before the meal with a tomato spread and an olive spread which are out if this world!
As a busy mom on a budget I recommend that you take your kids at lunch or an early dinner for a special occasion or a reward for good behavior. We spent about $16 for a 12-inch pizza and an appetizer of calamari. The prices are not the cheapest in town, but these are higher quality ingredients than your average pizza place.
