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.

I travel to Austin for work and this has become my must go place. All the staff remembers me by name, one of the owners always says hello to welcome me back to town. All of that would be enough for me to love this place if the food was meh, but the food! Oh the food!!!! The lasagna is a layer cake of texture and taste. The crunch of the carmalized grilled ground beef, the ricotta that is closer to a moose than any ricotta you’ve had, the perfect acidity/sweet sauce you know has been simmering all day full of flavor and the fresh greens on top that are oh so perfect. It’s amazing!!!

Good food, prixe menu was a little expensive for what it was. The entrees were very nice but the salad and appetizer selection were just ok. Wine was a great selection and I think we will definitely try this place on a regular night or happy hour.

We have a large friend group that loves to come to Boticellis for special occasions or even just celebrating our friendships. The wait staff is fantastic, nice, professional and knowledgeable about the menu and Italian wines. Their. Live band is amazing and interacts with the staff. Always a great time for very reasonable price!

My parents were in town and you guys are one of our favorite restaurants in Austin. My mother had dined with you all before but my father had not. Walking in and having a drink at the bar was perfect ( as we arrived a little early) super friendly bartender as well as host staff. Not half way through our drinks we were sitting at a table and then immediately when a booth opened

Delicious! This our second time to go and it was just as good as we remembered. A place that is high on the list when in South Austin. Highly recommend. We’re already planning another visit. The meatballs are out of this world and don’t skip dessert!

I brought my mom to Botticelli’s when she was visiting Austin and we had a great time. Our waitress was kind, helpful, and a sweetheart. We ordered meatballs for the appetizer and the bolognese dish and it was awesome. The noodles were perfect. I can’t wait to come back. This would be the perfect place for a date or special occasion. Super cute interior.

We had a party of 13 for a birthday celebration. This size of party can be difficult for many restaurants but Botticelli’s did a wonderful job of accommodating us! We sat on the patio and enjoyed the live music! The wait staff and band were amazing! Could not have been a better experience. Will definitely be returning for more celebrations!

The restaurant feels very run down since our last visit a couple years ago. Hallway, rugs, bathroom all need attention....replace dirty, tattered rugs, paint scratch walls, clean & paint bathrooms.

Wonderful service!

My wife and I celebrated our 28th anniversary at Botticelli's and while we would've preferred to have been seated in a booth, and a little bit quieter at our table (indoors; loud out back with the music on the patio makes sense), the food was wonderful and so was our overall experience.

Botticellis is a lovely little gem of a restaurant located on one of the best streets in Austin. The entire evening was perfect. The lasagna of the day was fabulous and beautifully presented. GREAT sauce. Very nice choice of wines, although the reds were not served at the correct temp. Slightly warm. Delicious chocolate mousse for dessert and limoncello topped off a lovely evening.

I took my mom here for her birthday dinner on a Thursday night and had some trouble with my reservation. Unfortunately I believe Open Table automatically requested an outdoor table for me and that was unintended, as my mom lives on the beach and it was probably in the 40s and windy on this particular night. The staff was completely accommodating and helped us get seated at an indoor table right away, despite not having an indoor reservation on a pretty busy evening. The service was incredible. The bartender was our server and she was completely friendly, fun and knowledgeable. Her drinks were spot on as well. We ordered the Caesar, the mushroom soup special, the lasagna of the day and the chicken Marsala.... everything was amazing. Each dish had a bit of a unique spin on it compared to its traditional presentation. The mushroom soup was absolutely AMAZING for the cold, windy, wet night we visited. I brought some home for my husband and we’ve both been craving more all weekend. Overall a great little place for a small group or date. My mom loved it and felt very special because the restaurant was so “quaint, charming and delicious”. Kudos y’all!!! And thanks for being so accommodating with our reservation snafu!

I brought a group of five people for a Tuesday night dinner. I had made reservations and we were seated immediately. Service was very attentive and main courses arrived relatively quickly. A couple of us were disappointed that there was no eggplant parmesan on the menu. All of us agreed that our meals were delicious. We didn't get wine so I cannot comment on that. Room itself was relatively small and pretty tight but building was very historic. Somewhat noisy atmosphere. Very attractive patio out back. Prices were slightly high but in keeping with the South Congress location. I would definitely come here again.

The food, the service, the lighting, the patio! Everything about this restaurant is just delightful and delicious. Definitely try their Botticelli bread, AMAZING! Their pasta is clearly made in house and their attention to detail is impressive. This is such a special place that I look forward to coming to again and again.
