Enoteca never disappoints! Amazing food, service and ambiance. Bret the bartender is amazing and can whip up anything your heart desires and the wine list is thoughtfully selected small batch estate grown and bottled wines from all over the world - you can't find their wines in stores so that makes it even more special!

We love this cozy Italian gem and the changes they have made due to Covid. The food is always outstanding and the new extended bar is fabulous! Start with the calamari and wine and go from there.

The saltimbocca was amazing as it was food fired yet tender and covered in pancetta that was sublime. The sea urchin pasta was also sublime and the clams tender.

Excited to hear they are offering 50% off wine BTB on Mondays. Service, food, and wine were slow to hit the table. Wine service was clumsy and should have been more prompt- we would have purchased a 2nd bottle if it arrived before our main course. Food has always been consistent and spot on.

It was a great date night. Our pups were with us and welcomed. The sommelier helped us with wine and the pizza was delightful. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Our server was so great- I wish I would have remembered her name. She wears cute doc martens! Thank you for great service.

You need to go here. This place has the best Italian food in Austin. Great staff, great menu too. Optimally laid out for social distancing without feeling like you are in some dystopian sci fi crazy world. I love this place.

The service is really nice - the staff are friendly and attentive. However, my dish made no sense. Manicotti with ricotta and spinach but covered in lemon zeet. That become the overwhelming flavor profile and was not pleasant.

My favorite Italian place in Austin. Such a value for the quality of food. Supli is my favorite starter and always a rotating selection of options. Great cocktails and wine as well as Italian beer.

Not as good as usual. Enoteca has always deserved raves, and we have gone frequetly from the time it opened many years ago. while I attribute this to the constraints of the Covid situation, several food items were noticeably sub par - eg, caesar salad bland, no hint of gartic in dressing. A pizza that was to feature truffles (among other things did not betray a trace of truffle to the two of us who ate it. Crust over cooked to cracker level, (and we have always liked the crusts). pasta cacio & epe served in a congealed blob, rather unappetizing.

a couple of other items were very good (pate, suppli)

but overall, very disappointing, especially since prices were elevated several months ago (before Covid)

sorry to have such negatives, but it is because you are our FAVORITE restaurant in town that it's important that you know. Saturday night's experience gives us pause before returning.

stay well, gang!
