Italian
A neighborhood gem! This family-run Italian restaurant offers a chic, rustic atmosphere in a downtown Austin landmark historic 1876 building. Enjoy outdoor sidewalk cafe dining just steps from the Texas State Capitol (dog friendly).
We feature a wide variety of authentic Italian pastas, pizza, meats, seafood & unique daily specials. (GF and Veg options). Daily specials highlight the freshest and most seasonal offerings, such as Rigatoni Alla Norcina (sausage with truffle oil), house-made Gnocchi Sorrentina, and Whole Roasted Fish. Gelato, sorbets and desserts are delicious and made in-house.
The cozy full-bar offers classic Italian cocktails and a sizable wine list representing Italy’s diverse regions.
All breads and pizza are made daily using naturally leavened dough and an ancient fermentation process; this improves digestibility and creates a delicious flavor. Neapolitan pizzas are baked at 1000 degrees in a wood-fired brick oven. Your new Austin favorite.

    Phenomenal authentic Italian cuisine! The craft cocktails are excellent as well — I recommend the Paper Plane and the Carbonara. If the Linguini Al Pesto special is available — you must get it!!

    Unbelievably LOUD!!! I could not hear a word my guest was saying. The decible level felt as if we were sitting on the tarmac next to an F18 taking off. We could not wait to finish our meal and leave. Too bad since the service was OK. The chicken parm was tough , the sauce watered down, but the penne was al dente. My guest's pizza had a very skimpy rationing of sauce, and meat. All in all a disappointing experience.

    Food was decent except for the pizza. Don’t come here for the pizza even though it’s a pizzeria… it was oddly over salted with granules of salt visible, and the cheese and sauce had a weird taste. Probably one of the worst restaurant pizzas I’ve ever had. Server was polite and efficient but not sure we’ll rush back with other Italian options locally. Glad we tried this place but I’m a bit confused by the high marks.

    Proprietor and exec chef Gianfranco has been regularly outdoing himself this year with homemade pappardelle with a variety of sauces. On my recent visit, his new (special) seafood sauce with mussels and shrimp in a perfectly balanced white sauce with oil, garlic and parsley over perfect pasta. Remember too the focaccia straight out of the oven, pizza, and for me the best, chewy, crusty, bread that comes at the beginning. Grazie GF.

    The service was great, they were able to accommodate us at the bar so we did not have to sit outside as it was hot. The Ceasar salad had a great flavor but it was just lettuce and dressing, could have used some croutons and some shaved parmesan cheese. The pizza was the worst, with no cheese very bland and soggy. The Italian salami tasted very bad like it was spoiled. The strawberry sorbet had to be returned as it had no flavor at all. The cannoli was pretty good. Maybe the entrees are better, they did advertise the best pizza and we were definitely disappointed

    First of all, the restaurant called me to either bump the reservation up 45 mins or back 30 mins because the time booked online wasn’t available and they were very rude so I should have known better. We went here for a Bachelorette party of 10 people and they had us shoved in the back corner of the restaurant against the wall near the wood burning oven. It was hot in there. The service was terrible. They were all rude! The food was mediocre. The pizza and calzone was burnt, our pasta was dry, and our drinks sat empty most of dinner. I am Italian but not even being an overly tough critic… based on just the service (mediocre food aside) I would not recommend this place!

    The ambiance was perfect! Absolutely loved the look and feel of this restaurant. Wish I could say the same for the food! I have lived in Italy for quite some time and know good pasta. The penne in the Arrabiata was way over done and the fettuccine used for the Bolognese almost had the al dente but was doughy on the inside. The weirdest thing and made for a very uncomfortable chewy dough flavor feeling when eating it. My daughter couldn't stomach it and didn't finish her food. It was not very good. The Focaccia was excellent! The pizza sauce on the pizza was almost tasted like it came out of the can with no spicing up other than salt to hide the flavor. That would keep me for ordering pizza alone even though the dough on this was good! And overall, everything was a little too salty for my taste and I love salt! Take it for what it's worth! Sad because I loved the atmosphere...

    Great casual dining. Owners on site and care. Waiter was one of the best in a long time very attentive. Wine was a bit overpriced but selection was good. Pasta was cooked perfectly. I thought the fish a tiny bit overdone but my bride thought it was great. Only issue was it was noisy. We would go back for sure.

    Excellent food and good service but not fantastic. Empty glasses at this price level aren’t what I expect. All entrees were excellent and there was a range of options. Ambience was very nice but on a very warm Austin night they could have cranked up the AC. All guests mentioned how warm it was - coolest location were the restrooms! We’ll be back to give them another go based on the food
