About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Botticelli’s South Congress is a fun and tasty Italian restaurant located in the heart of the exciting "SOCO" district. Botticelli's serves fresh and delicious Italian food combining old family recipes with new, inventive ones. Andrew and Matt Botticelli are the proud owners and are made even more proud by the food that Botticelli's delivers through its amazing staff. There are both an intimate dining room up front and a large beautiful beer garden out back, where there is live music Thursday through Saturday night. Full menu is available inside or out and at either bar. Look forward to seeing you soon.

Love this restaurant. Sad to see it close! Went here on our first date. The Botticelli bread, Caesar salad, muscled, and lasagna were always our favorites.

We absolutely Love Botticelli’s!! It just feels so cozy and is the perfect place to celebrate, or just enjoy a Happy Hour out back in the Beer Garden. The owners are so wonderful, and the food is always delicious and consistently well made. It will always have our hearts.♥️

Best Italian food but sad that they will be closing their doors this weekend due to Covid. The Botticelli brothers are one of a kind and had an excellent small business.

Very considerate of the social distancing requirements. Botticellis has been the best in managing the social distancing protocol. They have been the best at making this new way of life “user friendly”. These masks have made social interaction feel very disconnected, but Boticelli’s has brought some humanity and civility to dining out. Thank you!!

I love this restaurant! the intimacy and coziness is amazing. I was discussing with my dining partner how much it reminds me of some of the wonderful little restaurants in Paris I'd gone to. Special attention given and the food, exquisite! More than five stars awarded!!!

Great food, good wine. There were quite a few mosquitos outside, however. And while the food was delicious, it was pretty expensive for what you got.

My wait person made our cocktails and they were fabulous. Most Italian places only have wine and beer. Come here for the authentic food AND the cocktails. Both are delicious. Came during Covid 19. Everyone one is very considerate and I felt very safe.

We had reservations outside so that we could listen to the band so we expected there to be moderate noise level. We had such a great time. The food was delicious, service excellent and the band was great. We will definitely go back and tell our friends.

Met friends for outdoor dining. Appreciated all staff wearing masks, restaurant had plenty of hand sanitizer, etc. The outdoor area was lovely and quiet -
the challenge was the flies.
They were abundant and made eating and enjoying our space frustrating.
Otherwise, the food was very good and our server was courteous and attentive.

I was extremely impressed with the experience. I had eaten inside before, but the patio is even lovelier! Also, the food is always on point. One of my favorite Austin restaurants! For those that are still shy about going out to eat, their patio tables outside are all perfectly spaced apart.

We love Botticelli's - had dinner outdoors in the courtyard, live music, serene and peaceful setting. Their food is excellent - even though the menu is reduced due to Covid, all of the favorites are there. We had several folks with us (foodies) who had never been to Botticelli's - they are all huge fans now.

Despite a somewhat austere interior appearance and ambience because of social distancing requirements, we had a wonderful 41st anniversary dinner at Botticelli. The service, food and wine is always great and on this visit (the first dining out experience for us in months!) was absolutely up to par. For whatever reason (pandemic-related I'm sure), Botticelli's had no fish, scallops or shrimp on the menu. While a tad disappointing, with so many other tempting entree's on offer, mild disappointment evaporated in moments. Botticelli's is excellent and we're so happy to see they made it through the recent lockdown. Highly recommended!

I only had dessert and beverages. The dessert I had was homemade gelato and a cookie. Both were very tasty. I did look over the menu and there were three or four items that interested me since I don't eat meat. My friend said she would like to come back with her husband. The outdoor seating was nice, especially with the fans. I like that it is a smaller sized restuarant.

It was so nice to be out for a ‘new normal’ dinner- every thing and every body was very gracious. Social distancing, food delivery and masked servers are to be commended! We will be back very soon! An extra treat was live music - first time in over 2 months - thank you!!!!

Great dinner. I had reservations for 1. It started raining about the time of my reservation and it put them in a seating bind. I had to wait at the bar, but the bar tender was very attentive. A couple got seated at the bar for the same reason so when my table was ready I gave it up for their date and dined at the bar. My only complaint is the bar seats are too short for a comfortable meal. Great food. Great service, and the bar tender knows what he is doing!

The restaurant on a Friday night was very noisy. Two of us had the chicken dish and both folks thought the chicken had very little if any seasoning. The duck was ok, and the meatballs were very good.
