Great date night pick. Waiter had a great suggestion of wine. The cheese plate was great and our food was awesome. I ordered the tortalini and he got the red fish. The outside patio has misting fans.

Food was not good. We got the cheese plate, focaccia, spaghetti bolognese, tortellini and a risotto and we were disappointed with all of it. The outdoor seating and service was nice, consider going here for wine on a nice night out, but dinner somewhere else.

Should have QR code menus.
Food was good. The lamb chops were just okay just not worth the value on the menu. Cheese cake was good. Meatballs were interesting but wouldn’t order again. They were breaded which was meh. Overall it was good.

Social distancing: the bar was open and there were 6 People elbow to elbow there. That was disappointing. They use a little white payment machine to pay the bill I thought that was horrible given covid.

The owner definitely worked the room but only if you were a woman.

Cute place but meh

We walked with our friends that were visiting us from out of town. My wife and I have been here several times. Great local Italian Restaurant. They are choosing to limit seating to 25% for their outside (where we sat) and inside. I recommend reservations and their patio is very comfortable with the misters/fans. Inside is very nice as well.

Awesome wine list and their owner is from Italy so great selection of Italian wines. We generally order a reserve Chianti. This time we ordered (Castelvecchi Iodolaio Chianti Reserver 2014). Excellent wine.

Very good appetizers. Caprese Prosciutto and also Burrata are our go to apps.

We like to order their specials so had their soup (ham) special and their Sea Bass special for our entre. Both excellent. We've had their Osso Buco, Vitello Piccata (veal) and Risotto in the past and all have been very good.

Friends night out. All tables super distanced from each other in the dining room. Knowledgeable waiter, great service. Food was superb. Mushroom risotto was delicious and my friend was delighted with her gluten-free chicken Marsala. Special cocktail of the evening was really good and we both enjoyed one. Owner present and came over to say hello. They’ve definitely risen to the challenge of serving their customers in a pandemic and doing it first class.

Ordered the cheese plate and the amount of cheese was comical. There was only enough of each cheese for three small bites which at $16 was hard to swallow. Also, there was mold on one of the cheeses. We told the waiter and he took it to the owner-chef. The owner came back and said it was normal aging for the type of cheese-Asiago. However, it was not the Asiago but the Truffled Percino. He was adamant that it was the Asiago. I checked the menu later and the cheese had truffles in it and could not have been the Asiago. There was a long lag time between our cheese and the main entree which was hard to understand since they were at limited capacity with Covid. The saving grace was the entrees which were amazing-portions and flavor couldn't be better. We would give it another chance but would hope the service improves.

Delicious, authentic Italian meals. Our server was super friendly and helpful. We got the foccacia bread with olive oil, chicken Marsala, their ravioli special (shrimp scampi stuffed ravioli, with a Cointreau cream sauce), and the sogna dessert. All were spectacular. We also had the limoncello martini, an old fashion, and some wine. All were great, too. We will definitely be back. It's some of the best Italian we have had in Austin.

Michael did an amazing job recommending the wine, popular dish; Osso Bucco, pasta dish, panna cotta dessert. It's almost like we are back in Italian Riviera.
Overall, a romantic ambiance, good food and most importantly a very thoughtful customer service. Absolutely returning and highly recommended to couples.

This dining experience was our first since the restrictions were lifted, and they did an amazing job of spacing tables out to keep a safe distance, yet still made it feel warm and inviting.
