Dallas-based pizza restaurant Cane Rosso and local ice cream truck Cow Tipping Creamery will be taking over the former St. Philip space, located at 4715 S. Lamar Blvd in Sunset Valley, Central Austin Management Group announced Jan. 6.

Cane Rosso has five open locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and two in construction in Houston. The restaurant serves wood-fired pizza, cooked in less than 90 seconds in custom ovens, according to a news release by Cane Rosso.

Cow Tipping Creamery is a local food truck that has operated for four years, according to a news release. The creamery makes soft-serve ice cream cones, stacker sundaes and shakes. Cow Tipping Creamery will continue to operate its food truck while using the Cane Rosso kitchen to experiment and create desserts, according to a news release.

“We originally had looked at Austin sites about 2 years ago, but never could find the right fit,” Cane Rosso Owner Jay Jerrier said in a news release. “When the St. Philip space became available, the layout and location was a great match for both Cane Rosso and Cow Tipping Creamery.”

After one year of operation, pizza restaurant and bakery St. Philip closed Nov. 1. The Uchi Restaurant Group establishment has no plans to reopen or relocate that business.

Cane Rosso and Cow Tipping Creamery plan to open in Sunset Valley in 2016.
