Somebody Help This Poor Girl: Lost Italian Restaurant at Olla Podrida Mall

Anybody remember the name of the Italian restaurant in the gone, but not forgotten, Olla Podrida Mall in North Dallas?

Olla OllaPA nostalgic reader with a foggy memory asks the question:

I am searching for the name of an Italian restaurant that was in the Olla Podrida mall area back in the 80’s and 90’s.  I have searched the web but have had no success.  I am hoping someone in your organization will have archived info regarding closed restaurants.  I sincerely hop you will be able to assist.  Thank you in advance for your response.

Oh, Olla Podrida. The quaint, two-story arts and craft-style shopping center on Coit Road near Forest. I remember when it opened (1971). The only restaurant I recall is The Upper Crust. Looks like a bunch of people miss Olla Podrida. There is an I Miss Olla Podrida Mall Facebook page.
