The food was fabulous especially calamari, vodka pasta with sausage, minestrone soup and tomato and mozzarella salad....also including the coffees. The young girl who waited on us gave us great suggestions!
Brandon was our server and made the evening!! Had great recommendations for the food and wine. Very pleasant and very knowledgeable. Enjoyed so much came back the next night and asked for him again!!! Was NOT disappointed!!!
He is a definite keeper!! Excellent !!! Need to give him more responsibility.
I will definitely come back!!
Hello Anne, Branden is an amazing server and he will always deliver the utmost service possible. He is a true professional! We hope that you come back and visit real soon! Sincerely, the OP Italian Team
This place is amazing! I always visit here when in town. I would highly recommend the mushrooms, the calamari, and salmon for an entree!
Hello! Thank you so much for your kind review! Along with our great entrees, we'd love for you to try our amazing signature cocktails. Please feel free to stop by soon! Sincerely, the OP Italian Team
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.
Excellent service. Homemade pasta and arugula pizza were phenomenal!
The staff was wonderful and the food was amazing
Hello Anonymous, Thank you for the lovely compliment and review! Please stop by soon, we'd love to have you back! Sincerely, the OP Italian Team
Servers were very attentive and friendly.
Great meatball appetizer to start followed by two of their signature pizzas. Nice evening, attentive informed wait staff.
Top notch and authentic handmade Italian. Highly recommend.
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!
Quick, attentive service with fantastic food and ambiance, what more could you want? Had a great time, highly recommended.
Great service by Kat. Food was delicious and we enjoyed the ambiance. Gluten free pasta was good. Would have happily gone back if we did not have to leave town. Enjoyed our visit
Food ok for hotel restaurant.
Really good food, burratta caprese app and calamari were outstanding. All six people enjoyed their entrees and Cherie our server was lovely. We’ll definitely return!
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.
Loved the atmosphere. Great ambiance and food was delicious! Caesar salad was typical, nothing special but the ravioli was different and was so good! Enough to split too if you get an appetizer and dessert! Will be back
Service was some of the best we’ve had. Unique drinks and great food. We will definitely return.
Thank you for the great compliments on the service we provide here at OP Italian! We have build a great team filled with energy focused on better serving our guests! Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you soon. Sincerely, Braden Flores, Restaurant Manager
Amazing experience at OP! Had the best espresso martini, really incredible pasta and our server Kat was just a pleasure to interact with!
Thank you for taking the time to review OP Italian and acknowledge Kat! Our Espresso Martini is a specialty cocktail that took some time to perfect and we are so glad you enjoyed it!! We look forward to serving you again soon! Sincerely, Braden Flores, Restaurant Manager
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!
Thank you for being a repeat guest with us! I'm glad that you loved our new menu as countless hours of hard work and passion was put into it. Further, thank you for recognizing Kat's wealth of knowledge when it comes to wine and providing excellent service. She has certainly set the foundation for our team here at OP Italian and we are excited to see what the future brings her! Sincerely, Braden Flores, Restaurant Manager
Expensive need to give bread complimentary nothing was above board average food
Thank you for taking the time to give us your constructive feedback. Please know that your recommendations have been passed along to our Executive Chef for review. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you again. Sincerely, Braden Flores, Restaurant Manager
Emma, our server, was fantastic. We wanted for literally nothing (took advantage of the bottle & pizza deal twice on Saturday)—and had a great time celebrating our parents’ move to Austin! ❤️
Thank you for the great comments about Emma!! Please know she has been recognized by our leadershipteam for providing exceptional service. We're happy to welcome your parents to Austin and look forward to seeing all of you soon! Sincerely, Braden Flores, Restaurant Manager
Delicious food, great atmosphere and wonderful service!
This is a great kept secret. We eat at so many Austin “hot” spots and the food at OP rivals the best Italian restaurants in town.
Pleasant and relaxing dining experience. Food was good and so was the service.
Great pizza. Excellent choice of wines.
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.
Thank you for taking the time to give us your constructive feedback during your most recent experience with us. Please accept our apologies for an unsatisfactory experience and for not meeting our quality standards that we are known for. We would love the opportunity to serve you again in the future to truly showcase our menu. Sincerely, Braden Flores, Restaurant Manager
This restaurant is on the lower of a hotel, very chill vibe, dim lighting, outside seating also available. Excellent wine and cocktail menu, appetizers very good and my ravioli was delicious. Very homemade taste to the food, I'd go back!
Thank you for the detailed review of OP Italian! We hope to earn that 5th star on your next visit! Sincerely, Braden Flores, Restaurant Mananger
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.
I apologize for the quality of your most recent experience with us. Please know that your comments have been brought to the attention of our Executive Chef and will be addressed immediately. I sincerely hope that we may welcome you back again and have the opportunity to earn your loyalty. Sincerely, Braden Flores, Restaurant Manager
Amazing celebration for my sister’s pregno
Thank you for choosing to celebrate with us at OP Italian! We had a blast taking care of y'all and hope to see you all again soon! Sincerely, Braden Flores, Restaurant Manager
Everything was great! We started with the garlic bread which was amazing, it came with 4 pieces, just enough for each of us to have one slice. Then we got pizza and pasta, everything was great & we would definitely return.
Thank you, Kris, for the great review of OP Italian. We're delighted that you enjoyed our Neapolitan-Style Pizzas and Hand-made Pastas!! We look forward to your return. Sincerely, Braden Flores, Restaurant Manager
Sat outside. Waiter was nice enough but slow service. Two meals came out and one was wrong. They took the wrong meal away and never returned with the corrected dish. Manager came out to comp meal and offered to bring the right meal to go. It took too long so we left. Bad experience all around.

Waited over an hour for our food. Was ok when we received. Someone in our party ordered pizza and it was cold. Manager did bring us complementary glasses of wine to acknowledge our delay. Maybe a bad night but probably wouldn’t go back.
I'm terribly sorry to hear about your recent dining experience on the 4th of July. We thank you for joining us on our Nation's Holiday and I'm glad you enjoyed the wine. Again, we apologize for the delay during one of our busiest days of the year and we hope to have to the chance to welcome you back. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Sincerely, Braden Flores, Restaurant Manager (512) 608-4490
The food was delish! Started to with the burrata, then the roasted chicken and margherita pizza with thinly sliced prosciutto on top. Simply divine!
Thank you, StefaniaC, for the great review of OP Italian!! We locally source the freshest ingredients and make nearly everything in house! We are very happy that you enjoyed our offerings! Sincerely, Braden Flores, Restaurant Mananger
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.
I'm sorry to hear that our food did not measure up to your standards. Please know that we dedicate a hefty portion of our budget to providing excellent rustic menu offerings in our modern setting of Austin, TX. We thank you for your feedback and hope we can better serve you in the future. Sincerely, Braden Flores, Restaurant Manager
Honestly I can’t decide which part of our experience at OP Italian was better, the food or the service. But it was all great.
I had an amazing 25th birthday dinner here. Honestly 10/10 and thanks to our server Michael for making the experience even better.
Thank you for the great review and for recognizing Michael! We're delighted that his genuine care and service made all the difference to produce an amazing experience here at OP Italian. We look forward to your 26th Birthday!! Sincerely, Braden Flores, Restaurant Manager
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.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review of your recent visit to OP Italian. While there are some great comments in there, we also see where areas of opportunity are. We thank you for your feedback and look forward to earning five stars on your next visit! Sincerely, Braden Flores, Restaurant Manager
I had the cheese ravioli with pesto and pine nuts. Incredible flavor and our server was super attentive.
Thanks for the great review! We're delighted that you chose OP Italian and look forward to your return! Sincerely, Braden Flores, Restaurant Manager
My chicken Parmesan was so over cooked, I was not able to eat it. The food was not hot or even warm when it arrived at our table. The restaurant was not crowded, yet service was very slow.
I'm terribly sorry to hear that your experience was less than satisfactory. I would like to welcome further feedback to help us ensure that no other guests have the same experience. At your convenience, I can be reached at (512) 608-4490. Sincerely, Braden Flores, Restaurant Manager
