A family run Italian restaurant with a chic, rustic atmosphere in a downtown Austin landmark historic 1876 building. We specialize in traditional cuisine, combining unique flavors while emphasizing authentic preparations. We feature whole roasted fish, a wide variety of pastas and meats and vegetarian entrees. We also offer desserts made in-house, as well as unique daily specials. The cozy bar offers classic Italian cocktails and a sizable wine list representing Italy’s diverse regions. All breads, pizza and panini are made-in house using naturally leavened dough and an ancient fermentation process; this improves digestibility and creates a delicious flavor. Loaves of our delicious bread are available for purchase and are the perfect accompaniment to your own home cooked meals. Neapolitan pizzas are baked at 1000 degrees in a handcrafted, wood-fired brick oven. Enjoy peaceful sidewalk cafe dining just steps from the Texas State Capitol.
