A neighborhood gem! The family run Italian restaurant offers a chic, rustic atmosphere in a downtown Austin landmark historic 1876 building.
We specialize in traditional cuisine, combining unique flavors while emphasizing authentic preparations.
We feature a wide variety of pastas, pizza, meats, & unique daily specials. (GF and Veg options). Our gelato and desserts are made in-house.
The cozy bar offers classic Italian cocktails and a sizable wine list representing Italy’s diverse regions
All breads, pizza and panini are made-in house using naturally leavened dough and an ancient fermentation process; this improves digestibility and creates a delicious flavor. Loaves of our delicious bread are available for purchase and are the perfect accompaniment to your own home cooked meals.
Neapolitan pizzas are baked at 1000 degrees in a handcrafted, wood-fired brick oven.
Enjoy outdoor sidewalk cafe dining just steps from the Texas State Capitol. (dog friendly and heated in winter).

Food was good, decently priced for Italian. Pizza and bruschetta were especially good. Retail markup on wine was steep. Service was mediocre, we had to flag our server down for basically everything we needed. We might return, but probably not for a while.

Absolutely incredible!! Cannot recommend this place enough. The specials are always amazing and the cannoli was the best way to end the meal. Owners are always very nice and make sure to come by the table and check in.

The food was good, just not great. I think this place has a lot of potential. The location is fantastic. They just need to upgrade the food and service a little and they could really make some noise.

We had a great time at Quattro Gatti for our semi-annual team meeting. The food was excellent, with light, tasty pasta, and beautiful pizza. The service was really good and the restaurant is ideally located on Congress right by the Capitol. Definitely look forward to going again!

Did not disappoint. Dinner was excellent. We split a Margherita pizza and the spicy pork chop, both of which were delicious! The roasted peppers and anchovies dish for an appetizer was good, as was the cured meat board, which came with some thinly sliced roasted vegetables that were incredible. For dessert, the tiramisu was probably the best I've had. It was light and airy, and was the perfect finish. The service was just what you'd hope for, and the chef even stopped by the table and thanked us for coming in, which was a nice touch. The only thing that was lacking was the wine selection, but everything else made up for it. We will absolutely be going back.

The food is great and the service is attentive. We love the hospitality of John Franco's hospitality. There are many great pasta's to choose from. The tortellini alla panama's and the bolognese are very authentic. They have great specials every day. I like the choices of wine from many Italian regions.

I took out of town guests as it is one of my favorite places and usually quite good. Our server was terrible. Took our order after 30 min. Then 30 min later told us they were out of clams for the pescatore. The replacement dish was rushed and below average.

Had a wonderful dinner- shared the montanara pizza and then had the linguine pescatore and the house made gnocchi. All were out of this world. Loved the music and the vibe. Our server was very personable and quite attentive. We will be back soon!

The food was delicious. I would've appreciated drink covers and plate covers since there were lots of flies outside. Also the ambiance inside doesn't carry to the outside seating area.

I had a very long hair in my pizza so I couldn’t eat anything from there but my friends said the food they had was not that good so we would probably not visit again. The service was fine and they apologized for the hair and removed it off the bill.

The place was not particularly clean overall either.

Love, love, love this restaurant. It’s my go to place for date nights, girls night out, and even business dinners. The most authentic Italian food in Austin. We loved the truffle pizza and the whole fish. The sgroppino frozen cocktail made from housemade lemon sorbet was amazing. Service excellent as always!!

When told they had outdoor seating I didn’t realize it was literally on the sidewalk. No barriers, people walking and riding electric scooters between tables. Waitress obviously new not very knowledgeable on wine but pleasant enough carried all the outdoor tables. Tough job. Carbonara dish was dry and tasteless, my husbands ordered truffle sausage and received shrimp dinner then told that’s what he ordered. Another guest ordered the whole breem which was deboned but not descaled so she constantly had to pick scales from each bite till she gave up. Not fun when you spend $35. on a fish. Inside looked charming.
