Good outdoor patio make it a Covid 'safer' place to dine. We've always had great service. Happy Hour offers half off bottles of wine. I always love the mushroom pasta!

We went there to celebrate both of our recent promotions and the staff made us feel very special. They even offered us a free dessert, but we were too full from all the delicious food! Fantastic gluten-free options too

We were in Austin for family vacation and decided we wanted Italian for dinner. We were able to snag a reservation here on short notice. Location was nice, on South Congress. I hate to say, food was fair at best. Looked nice but lacked in flavor. The bolognese was ok, I’ve definitely had better. The tagliatelle had zero flavor. All dishes seemed to lack seasoning.

Got seated a little later after our reservation, but it wasn’t a big deal. Our server was great and recommended the best stuff.

Worst service we’ve ever experienced and we dine out a lot! We made a reservation and were seated close to our designated time. We placed our order for appetizer and pizza in a timely fashion. We received our appetizer, but waited 40 minutes for our pizza, when we asked our waitress for a to-go box. We believe our order was never placed, because when our to-go pizza was hastily brought to our table, it was under-cooked & was nothing more than a massive amount of melted cheese on disintegrated dough. Truly the worst pizza we’ve ever been served, if ‘served’ is the word. We’ve dined at Enoteca for years, as it was one of our favorite eateries in Austin, but it is obviously not the same restaurant and we will not return.

Enoteca is consistently one of the best restaurants in Austin. They had redone the interior since our last visit pre-Covid. New drinks and a whole new look. We’ve never had anything but a wonderful meal here!!

The food was delicious and we love the atmosphere and new remodel. But it was very cold inside the restaurant. It seemed as though the heater wasn’t working.
