Giro Authentic Italian Pizza coming to Flower Mound this fall

Show map
Giro Authentic Italian Pizza is set to open at 3711 Justin Road, Ste. 110 in Flower Mound this fall. According to the town of Flower Mound, the restaurant will use a concept commonly used in Italy: the pizzeria will allow guests to "tour" different types of pizza, instead of requiring a specific order. Giro Authentic Italian Pizza will offer appetizers, pizza, dessert, beer and wine. Gluten-free options will be available as well. Patrons will also be able to visit the restaurant's Italian market, where items from a farm in Florence, Italy, will be available. The restaurant is set to host private parties and live music. giropizzatx.com
