Food was great. Drinks were great. Noise level extremely high.
Super good! Great atmosphere and service, delish wine!
I have nothing else to say. I am required to post
Pasta did not meet the standards, the red meat pasta was cooked and seasoned poorly
Ink squid pasta too salty.
Not enough food for adults.
Music too loud
Best patio, great area, good for larger groups as well.
The spritz’s are so yummy here! The pepper pasta might be my favorite dish
Il Brutto was wonderful! Definitely must eat here when in Austin.
Let the chef choose for you! We did that and had the most incredible meal I’ve had in a year. Every bite was incredible. Also, sit outside. Their ambience inside is noisy and not great. Always outside :)
My husband and I came for my birthday dinner, and it was perfect! The service, the food, the view from the pizza counter; it was honestly one of the best meals of my life!
Get the cacio e pepe and the lasagna; I’m still dreaming about them!
Pasta was excellent drinks were good. Pistachio Gelato was the greatest thing I’ve ever put in my mouth.
Fun and inviting, atmosphere, enjoyed my birthday celebration.
We decided on a standard table for seating. Our server was excellent. She automatically figured out that we were on a special date. She was pleasant with the children and made everyone feel so comfortable. Actually, everyone who came to our table was very complimentary. That was all part of our experience before we even ordered food. And then we ordered food.
First of all. Everything on the menu looks delicious. We ordered the beet salad to start and I didn’t take a picture of that. But everything else is included in this review.
The food was divine. The children ate everything. Dessert was incredible. I am a tiramisu buff and let me tell you, this tiramisu is soft and fluffy and just delicious. It’s not heavy. And it’s perfect. Here come the pictures...
Thank you to our waitress especially. And to the staff at Il Brutto. And to the live music as well. The entire experience was just magical and perfect in every way! We had the best “Royal” evening!
IL Brutto was truly excellent. The service was warm and helpful. My halibut was perfectly prepared and my dining partner loved his pasta. Wine, cocktails and after dinner drinks with deserts rounded out an wonderful evening on the patio.
Great food! Safe environment. We loved the outdoors area.
Great food and excellent outdoor patio. Definitely would recommend Il Brutto.
Always a delightful time at Il Brutto!
Great drinks (cocktails, and wine)!
Great food (EVERYTHING.)
Life is good when you’re on the patio with a spritz. Who could ask for more?
Great food, great service, patio was lovely. Definitely recommend!
It was the best night! AMAZING food (I got the gluten free lamb ragu and it was phenomenal) and the ambiance was great as well. We went to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday and had a great night - would highly recommend!
Great food, drink and service. We sat at the bar, which was great.
Amazing pasta! I’ve eaten both inside and out and both are fab for ambiance. Do not skip the desserts
Really good food and drinks
Really loved this place. Great patio, great drinks, awesome service.
Not very satisfied with the portions of the antipasti (beets w/goat cheese). Gnocchi, were over cooked and sauce tasted like it was microwaved. Margherita pizza, crust was okay, marinara sauce decent, but mozzarella taste like the lowest quality.
We loved everything about the deserts (strawberry semifreddo & tiramisu).
It was a special occasion but it didn’t feel special. Our waiter was not very attentive, I had to put a drink order through another server. Restaurant was unbelievably loud, I couldn’t even hear the people next to me. Food was mediocre, not worth the prices. Overall disappointing and unsure why the restaurant was so packed.
We love Il Brutto. The food is consistently excellent, and the atmosphere is great. The outdoor seating area is wonderful. Try the squid ink pasta and the tiramisu!
We had an amazing time! Our sever was perfect! And food was on point. Exceptional.
Slower service than I thought I was as normal for the amount of people. Received napkins/cutlery after apps were served.
Great option for HH/dinner, plenty of places to sit inside and outside. Everything was awesome- service, drinks, and food!
Good food. The limoncello shot was good at the end but ruined the taste in our mouth.
Always the best! Great service and food. We always get an app and two entrees and it’s perfect for the two of us.
Service was very good but we got stuck in the back room with no ambiance. Mussels/clams were meh, Cacio el Pepe was just ok, pizza was good, squid ink pasta was delish. Tiramisu was just ok. Gelato was think and tasty.
Excellent food, great service, and a comfortable and familiar ambiance. Recommended for everyday dining or a special occasion. They will treat you well!
Party of 6, kept bringing us everything for party of 5. Forgot my entree, I was not served until everyone was done. Very loud and very hot, we all had to step out from time to time for air. Lasagna was raw. I’ve been here before and had a great experience, this one in particular was bad which was unfortunate as we were treating our mother for Mother’s Day.
Lovely place with delicious food! We will definitely return!!
This was good but the portions were very small and pricey.
Great pizza; the others were ok. But fun spot. Will go back.
Service was great and the food was outstanding! My girlfriend won’t stop talking about it. The whole experience was awesome!
Love Il Brutto. They have wonderful cocktails, aperitivo and delicious food. Great seating options - at bar, tables / boots, and outside. A nice evening can make for a magical setting outside with a little transport to Italy. Va bene!
A beautiful evening in Austin, TX on a beautiful patio. The ambience was the best part of the evening. Salad was delicious, lasagna was good (not great), and dessert was fabulous. We would definitely recommend Il Brutto.
