Italy, a country rich in culture, is even better known for its food and wine. Italians have a genuine passion for sharing meals with family and friends. It's the passion that led us to open Pescaraz, and we hope to bring you Italy's most flavorful meals. Our imagination along with timeless recipes allow us to create dishes full of flavor, served in a relaxed, casual dining environment.
Even native Italians agree -- Pescaraz is the place to be for authentic, traditional Italian meals.
For the best in Italian, come to Pescaraz -- Amarillo's locally owned and operated Italian restaurant.
Why We Named Our Restaurant Pescaraz
Pescara is the capital city of the Province of Pescara in Italy, and translates to "abundance of fish". And no wonder, since Pescara is located on the coast of the Adriatic sea. The name reminds us of the elegance, romance, architecture and history of Italy.
We added a "z" at the end for some flair!
Mangia! (So, eat! in Italian)
We love whole wheat bread. It’s what made us famous and continues to endear us to a broader array of happy customers. That's because we think whole wheat bread, when it's made with fresh-ground flour and pure-and-simple ingredients, tastes incredible. There's just something about the way that nutty, rich taste of wheat combines with honey, yeast and salt that keeps customers coming back.
We could tell you how great our food is but why would you believe us so here is what the Amarillo Globe News said.

Stir it up a little at
TEXAS CHICKEN WOK
Woody Alvarez admits he doesn’t look like the average owner and chef of a restaurant featuring Asian cuisine, but he said his Texas Chicken Wok serves up some of the best food in the area.
“I’ve had people come in the kitchen wondering who cooked, since I’m not Thai,” said Alvarez, who has operated the restaurant for three years. “I always wanted my own restaurant.”
Alvarez, who has part-Chinese heritage, serves Thai and Chinese cuisine at his restaurant, which is decorated with hanging lanterns, fans, and oriental-style hats.
For those looking for a quick lunch for less than $5, Texas Chicken Wok offers seven choices of meat with rice or noodles starting at $3.95.
“Our lunch is popular, especially with the high school kids,” Alvarez said. “We have a lot of repeat customers.”
Alvarez does most of the cooking, and he offers more than 27 Thai choices, as well as 27 Chinese choices.
Seafood choices include squid, shrimp and catfish.
All meals come with a choice of one meat, or they can be upgraded to a combo. For the vegetarian, stir-fry is available.
“Our stir-fry is very popular,” Alvarez said. People can choose whatever they want to put in it and can add meat or fish if they choose.”
Alvarez said the one thing that makes his restaurant unique is friendliness and a willingness to cook each patron’s order to his or her specifications.
“If they don’t want MSG, we don’t use it. If they want a special style, we’ll do it,” he said.
