To me it is a little spot of New York in Austin, the space reminds me of a mom and pop NY restaurant. Food is excellent you can see the pizza oven in all its glory, service and quality impeccable.

Thank goodness for the food and manager service. We had reservations at 5pm, the restaurant was still empty at that time. So why we were greeted with, "Just to let you know your table has reservations at 6:45pm." 🤷🏼‍♀️ The food is delicious, but I would hire friendlier wait staff for a Italian restaurant, just my option. Although, our waiters that night were good, they just need to chat more. SMILE, more!
But the food makes up for all of it. I have recommended it, several times.

Would have loved candles in the tables. The place begs for it!
The pizza was soggy & the tomatoes underripe. The Caesar was mayonaisey.
The pasta was very good!
The service was friendly.

This was our second visit to Cipollina for lunch and it was as excellent as the first visit. Our server was very attentive and the food (Pan Seared Red Fish and Classico Pizza) was awesome. This is becoming our favorite restaurant.

The food was delicious but restaurant is too loud for conversation. Bring a book because you won’t be able to speak to your dining partner.

Cipollina is a hidden gem. Very casual neighborhood restaurant and bar. We only had the mussels appetizer, house salad and pizza. All were excellent. I wish I would have found this place sooner. Will definitely go back next time I’m in Austin—I want to try the pastas!

Had forgotten about the restaurant and glad we stumbled back in. Everything good but surprised when prosciutto pizza came without tomato sauce. Noise level up there. Will return and bring tomato sauce.

Versatile menu. Good selection of appetizers and salads balanced by several excellent main courses. The wine selection is one of the best in Austin. Servers are attentive and they do not rush your dinner

It started with being greeted by the hostess and told that while they would seat us they would need the table in an hour. It was a 6:45 reservation. The place was less than half full and never filled to capacity while we were there. Pizza came to the table burnt to a charcoal on the edges and soggy in the middle. Server was in to rushing us out, not sure why given there was no crowd. Never was asked if we wanted another beverage after the first was served. Will never go back. Awful experience!

I would not call the noise "Energetic" -- too damn loud is more like it. There was a HUGE group this night; maybe 25-40 people. Staff did a great job of providing service for those not in the group. But the noise was way too much.
