Really nice neighborhood restaurant! A good option if you want something that is outside of the normal downtown options. Really friendly atmosphere and really nice food.

The food was fine. We particularly enjoyed the garlic knots. The Caesar salad was not good. It was so loud that it was difficult to carry on a conversation at a table of 6 people. I wouldn’t recommend this for an event or intimate dinner. However, I can see why people would like it for a weeknight bite in the neighborhood.

Everything was great except for the noise level. I couldn’t hear the person sitting next to me. I couldn’t wait to leave. I just need to remember to go at off hours.
Only one Pinot Grigio choice on menu

This is a great little Italian restaurant! It's not a very large place, so you will want to get a reservation in advance. I had the spinach alfredo gnocchi, and I would highly recommend if it's still on the menu!

Great for special occasions, or friends getting together. Good restaurant to have a great meal without being overpriced.

A great neighborhood spot and one of the best Italian dinners in town! Excellent service, too. Get the Brussels sprouts!

This is our go-to neighborhood restaurant. The food is consistently good and the wine list is reasonable. Love the prosciutto pizza with arugula! Delicious. Good Caesar salad as well. The service is always excellent. We absolutely love our waitress there. She's the best!

My husband and I went for an early dinner before the symphony we had a wonderful meal. Since it was our 21st anniversary our waiter brought us a complimentary creme brulè, yummy! One of our favorite places in Austin for a quiet meal.

This was a great experience--though it was during the holidays and thus less crowded at lunchtime than usual, I'd guess. That's why I rated the ambiance as "quiet". ;) The pizzas are great--a definite must-try for anyone. The only drawback to the restaurant that I could see was the lack of attentiveness to accessibility. As someone who once had to push her mother in a wheelchair, it was hard for me not to notice that the hallway to the bathrooms was partially blocked by a stack of high chairs. Once inside the bathroom, it was clear that a person in a wheelchair would have trouble reaching for the towels and looking in the mirror. If the accessibility issues could be addressed, it would be a more welcoming restaurant for all! Unfortunately, the landlord only seems to have provided one special parking stall, and it's at the opposite end of the building from Cipollina. If anyone in your party has special physical needs, this might not be the best place for you.

Another neighborhood gem! Great food, service, and value! We have come to Cipollina a number of times and have never been disappointed. Even a simple dish like Spaghetti and meatballs is well done and delicious. Noise level is moderate to energetic. Highly recommended!
