Pizza and Beer

Pizza and beer. For years, these two magic words have existed in delicious harmony. But in our grab-a-slice and chug-a-cold-one world, Taverna Rossa is here to take this tried-and-true pair to the next level.

Passionate about creating a remarkable experience through great food, drinks, service and atmosphere, Preston Lancaster, along with partner Tony Smith, set out to create their own favorite restaurant in a community they grew up in and are proud to be a part of.

Settling for nothing less than handmade goodness and hometown flavors, each pizza and entree is loaded with locally sourced ingredients like smoked Texas brisket and apple wood smoked bacon from Hamm’s Meat Market in McKinney, Lemley Tomatoes from Canton, Luscher’s Italian Sausage and Texas Wagyu sirloin.

The menu was created in collaboration with culinary consultant Brian Luscher, Chef/Owner of The Grape in Dallas, whose influence elevates every bite to pizza perfection.

Enjoy your pie with an ice-cold brew from our worldly craft beer selection. Or, for our guests wearing their fancy pants, we offer one-of-a-kind, handcrafted cocktails and a variety of wines.

Taverna Rossa is a place to make yourself at home and rest your feet, but make sure you can still tap ‘em along to the live bands that play 1 to 2 nights a week. From blues to country to rock, even the music has local flavor.

So grab your friends, grab your appetite and leave your old-school pizza principles at the door. Because at Taverna Rossa, we’ve crafted pizza and beer into a serious slice of amazing.

Thank you for your patronage, we truly appreciate it!

Our Team

Version 2

Preston Lancaster

Founder / ceo

Preston was born and raised in Dallas, Texas with restaurant-centric DNA in him. His grandparents were in the business for over 50 years and his mom owns a pizzeria and wine bar where Preston worked as a kid, running food and bussing tables. Fast-forward many years, Preston earned a golf scholarship to the University of San Diego and left four years later with a Business degree and his sights set on entering into the hospitality industry.

Preston has always been an entrepreneur at heart, from starting a lawn-mowing business as a child to owning a financial services company to owning half a dozen restaurants in the DFW Metroplex. In 2007, Preston purchased Palio’s Pizza Café in Little Elm, Texas and subsequently opened up three more North Texas locations. Soon after came the purchase and rebuild of the highly acclaimed Cadillac Pizza Pub in Downtown McKinney, Texas.  Next, the concept of Taverna Rossa was born and opened its doors in 2013 in Plano, Texas.

Many days and nights they spent together were sitting on the floor with their guitars, talking about life, love, and even the strange/funny things that happen when you’re dating in your early 20’s.
