Not only is the pizza the best in Austin, the rest of the menu is imaginative and tasty, and the service has always been great in the 10 or so times we have eaten here.

Today we experienced Cane Rosso’s. Despite our post last week, this is a “chain” I’ll come back to. It has a funky Austin vibe, great food and friendly service. Cane Rosso serves the most authentic wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas in Texas. We had a bottle of Argiano, Italian red. I liked enough to order six bottles. Their Nuggz are their version of fried mozzarella sticks. We also tried the bruschetta - I’ve had better. My entree was pasta in vodka sauce that I enjoyed. Julie ordered the Johnny Utah pizza that she made a significant dent in. I had a slice - it was delicious. #canerosso #food #foodie #cocktails #dessert #foodlovers

The server forgot our appetizer, the food was a very limited selection and pretty average. The ambience was just okay as well. If you skip this place, you wouldn’t be missing much.

Came here on Valentine’s Day and it was clear they overbooked themselves. First, the hostess tried seating us on the patio when it was 40 degrees and windy out. Luckily, we were able to get something inside.

But the food took forever and didn’t even come at the same time. The pizza my partner ordered for himself came 30 minutes after we ordered it, and the carbonara I ordered myself came almost a full hour after we ordered it. When it finally arrived, it was ice cold. I never send food back, but I did at Cane Rosso. I wasn’t going to eat something that’s served with a raw egg yolk on top if it’s cold; I do not want to get sick. They offered to remake it for me, but we didn’t want to sit for another hour. We just asked for the bill and left. I was hoping for a cute, lowkey Valentine’s Day, but this place isn’t equipped to handle a lot of customers.

The food was super delicious and our wait person was extremely professional, courteous and had a great personality (her name was Christina). Our first time and will definitely be back for another Billy Ray Valentine (add meatballs)! I definitely recommend utilizing Open Table whenever available. Takes the stress out of your dining experience.

The food was okay. My husband and I had the jabroni pizza, my teenage son had the spaghetti and meatballs, and his friend had a different pasta dished (the baked penne I believe). She liked the penne, and he enjoyed the pasta and the sauce, but disliked the meatballs. I tried them and agreed.

The flavor of our pizza was very good. However, there were several burnt spots on the bottom of the pizza. The crust was thin and floppy, rather than thin and crispy - which is a matter of taste - but it was so floppy that it wasn't possible to 'eat around' the burnt spots.

Also, for appetizers, we got the calamari and the fried cheese. Both were okay - the seasoning on the calamari was great, but it was overcooked, and the fried cheese was not any better than Sonic's.

The environment is great. It's a really cool, trendy place. Also, it was New Year's Eve, so it was very busy and that may have affected the kitchen. I will try it again on a slower night.

1st time visiting Cane Rosso; pizza was solid. Tried the Betty on regular crust and the Cane Rosso on Gluten Free crust. Also had a large salad and meatball appetizer. Everything was tasty - would give the food a 7 out of 10. Restaurant ambiance was great. Our server was really attentive and helpful when we were asking for suggestions. Biggest negative was that the Pizzas took a LONG time despite the restaurant not being very busy. Also, a little overpriced.

This was a small birthday dinner, and we felt rushed and neglected throughout the meal. We never were asked for a drink order, so sat with water glasses until we could flag our server down for a beverage. We’d planned on ordering more food and suddenly the check was on the table and my cocktail was removed before I was done. So we moved on to another location to continue the night.

We loved our experience at Cane Rosso. However, I did not appreciate how they changed our reservation at the last second. We booked our reservation for a Saturday evening dinner the Wednesday before on Open Table, and opted for outdoor seating, since it was going to be a beautiful night. I received a call a few hours before we were supposed to dine, saying that there was a private party on the patio and the outdoor seating was no longer available. They were able to accommodate us inside, but I did not appreciate getting called the day of only a few hours beforehand. It seemed as though they would've known well ahead of time about a private event in their outdoor section, and could have either called us anytime the week before the reservation or changed their Open Table to reflect that. I did not think it was great restaurant service to call a few hours beforehand.

This is a fine place for a casual meal. The wait crew is friendly, prompt and capable. The kitchen turns out first-rate pizzas that are thin-crusted and inventively and skillfully topped with a variety of appetizing ingredients and accompanied by fine salads and other edibles. Prices are reasonable...with excellent service, delicious food and a bright, welcoming venue you will be pleased, as we were.
I can recommend Cane Rosso without any negative warnings. It is a great place!

The food was very good but the service was horrible, would do take-out option in the future. Took 10 minutes to be acknowledged and given water. Service overall was really slow and towards the end of our meal they started putting chairs up on the tables around us and legitimately played closing time.

This was a good place for our party of ten. We were able to get last minute reservations. The pizzas were goo and so was the salad. I wasn't crazy about all the dogs and you can hear the barking through the windows/doors when you are inside. But, this is Austin, what did i expect!

We brought our puppy for his first outing for a meal (we had done shorter outings before) and Cane Rossi was the perfect place for this. There wasn’t a crowd so we asked to be seated at a corner spot. The staff was great with us having him there. The pizza was fantastic. I love the style and it is done well. We will definitely come back!

Flavors and quality of the food were great. We went brunch and I got the brisket biscuit and my wife got the chicken and waffles. I would recommend them both. Their pizza is great too. A thinner chewy crust. Love it

My son, husband and I visited for Sunday brunch on a recommendation from a friend. The atmosphere is casual and has a great looking patio but they weren't seating out there yet. Our waiter was awesome and helpful with his suggestions and was timely with refills, etc. He described the type of pizza they have which I likened to pizza that you actually get in Italy. Thin, soft crust. I really wanted to try the pizza but I also really wanted the pasta so I can't rate the pizza. The pasta Truffle Carbonara was very good. I tried my husbands Skillet Hash and ended up sharing both our plates because they were both so good. My son got the chicken & waffles and ate every bite! It's huge so I was surprised. The syrup was a bit too spicy for me but hey it's a waffle so I ate two more test bites just to be sure - yep it's a winner. If I were to order this I would definitely have to ask to reduce the spice if possible, since I AM a spice wimp. I noticed that they have a pizza/salad lunch special during the week so I'm hoping to go back soon to try the pizza. The portion sizes were good. We didn't need a to-go box but we were pleasantly full too. It was my birthday and I was too stuffed to order dessert but sure wish one of my guys would have piped up because the desserts look FABULOUS!! Oh well, next time! Cj

Love Cane Rosso! We sat outside so noise level wasn’t bad. The server kept forgetting about us but it was a busy night and the food made up for it.
