Italian
Fresh-made pasta, fresh seafood, slow-cooked meats, and wood-fired Neapolitan pizza are the traditional comfort-food classics that Italians have been roasting, baking, curing and making in their own kitchens for generations. OP Italian is a revitalized concept that is making the classics new again, all in a modern setting.

With an open-kitchen concept, a lively wine bar, and a brand new outdoor bar, OP Italian combines the past
and present to serve good food to good people.

This place is amazing! I always visit here when in town. I would highly recommend the mushrooms, the calamari, and salmon for an entree!

Our server was outstanding. I forget his name but he was very kind and nice. Tall, curly hair. It was my birthday dinner and he made it exceptional. He recommended many items that we tried. Thank you for the great experience and I will be back to dine again.

We were in town for our 30th Wedding Anniversary and we greatly regret pick this restaurant! No one even acknowledged our Anniversary! I ordered the chicken parmigiana with butter pasta. Chicken was cold and tasted like old fryer grease. The butter pasta had a lot of butter and no other seasoning to it. My husband ordered the lasagna and it was as he said “different”!! He didn’t finish it!! Our waiter didn’t come around to ask us if we wanted a second drink. He just brought the check without us asking and when we didn’t put our card out to pay for our meal right away he asked if we wanted it added to our room or what?? Sorry to say we will never go back there and we had a horrible 30th Anniversary dinner!!

My husband and I ate here for our anniversary, September 2, 2019. Everything was top notch, the service, the food, and the ambiance. We absolutely loved it. Our waiter (whose name I cannot remember unfortunately) was extremely knowledgeable about the menu items and always near to refill our glasses. We would highly recommend OP Italian!

Very disappointed at the menu change. Straw and Hay was an extremely delicious dish that I would order 2-3 times during my stays in Austin. Server was great and empathized with my disappointment. The short ribs and gnocchi was good, but needed more acidity. We asked for a side of capers and it helped. Portions were good. I really think it was a huge mistake to completely change the menu though.

We hadn’t been since the menu had changed. The food was even better! Kat, our server, was amazing and knowledgeable about the wines. I would probably ask for her next time. I have been quite a few times and they seem to have upped their game here. The bolognese was so good!

Service was good. Great city vibe. Chicken Parmesan was dry and skimpy on the sauce. Charged for dry, chewy garlic bread. Lasagna was mostly cheese, but good. Pesto ravioli sauce was terrible and ravioli undercooked. Prices to high for poor quality food.

Overpriced for what you get. My sons gnocchi and beef rib tips was pasty and beef was fatty. My chicken parmigiana was over cooked and sent back to kitchen. Second time still slightly overlooked And dry. Salmon was good but a very small portion for the price.

Overrated. Simply not worth going going back. Disappointing. Had the bolognese and the sauce made it a heavy dish. Friend with ya ordered the same and didn’t even eat or took home. The antipasti appetizer was good, but not enough for 4. This restaurant needs to visit Italy and learn what a true Italian meal should consist of.

The food was fine; not great, but not bad. The wine selection, however, *is* great and our bottle of wine made the meal. Service was a little slow even though the restuarant wasn't crowded, but that may have just been our server. Our table was directly under the AC vent, so uncomfortably cold.
