We were celebrating a birthday. The only constructive feedback is, I had put on the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and when the restaurant confirmed my reservation they knew that. They didn’t ask or tell me if we were bringing in a cake or cupcakes that there is a $25 cake cutting fee. So how this was brought up was the waitress mid way through our time there and the cupcakes were on the table all night, that there was a $25 cake cutting fee. It was very odd for the ambience and just strange, what were we to do except say ok no problem, we couldn’t put the cupcakes up and say no we won’t pay. It was just odd for the timing and how it was announced to the whole table including the birthday girl. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Diners' Choice Winners: Best Overall
Austin's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
The service was amazing. Most of our dinner was great however the steak was so-so. Very average, nothing special. MoreOpenTable Diner -
This was a nice date night spot, especially if you are able to sit outside. Our waiter was attentive and gave helpful recommendation and descriptions. The food and the presentation was beautifully rustic. Some menu items seemed not thought out- ie, the cheese board didn't come with bread or crackers. We were left with just eating pieces of cheese and then pairing it with a grape or walnut. Not bad, just awkward. As the current menu stands, there is nothing on the menu that is inherently vegan mostly because the menu is very dairy heavy. There are plenty of yummy vegetarian options provided you eat dairy. The risotto was our favorite. MoreOpenTable Diner -

Gino Minardi was born and raised in the coastal town of Gela, Italy, which is located in the province of Caltanissetta. He came to America in 1957 and settled in Brooklyn, New York. Spending much of his time working in a local bakery, Gino began spending the rest of his time dating the love of his life, Angela. They married in 1959 and eventually moved to New Jersey where he opened his first Italian-American bakery/pizzaria. After moving to Florida and opening a pizza shop, his friend Tony from Sicily talked Gino and his brother Luciano into coming to Texas for a partnership in Galveston. With their children migrating to the Austin area, Gino and Angela ultimately made the move themselves. They chose Round Rock as the best fit for them and Gino's Italian Cuisine. Opening its doors at its current location in 1993, Gino's has been proudly serving the Central Texas area for over 20 years.More
Austin’s booming dining scene is one of the many reasons the vibrant capital of Texas tops just about every “best of” list that comes out. Over the last decade, Austin has made waves in industries from music and tech to filmmaking and—you guessed it—food. Speaking of food, forget any notions about Austin’s culinary scene being solely Tex-Mex, barbecue, and breakfast tacos. While all those things are still here (and delicious as ever), the food scene is brimming with energy, creativity, and new concepts. A new wave of coffee roasteries, sushi fusion restaurants, stylish eateries and juiceries have opened their doors, adding dynamism to a city on the rise.
