It was extremely loud, and the service suffered as a result. The wine list was good, but many of the wines were too young to drink and no decanting or aerating was offered. Wine prices were also quite high given the age of the wines.
Food, however, was fantastic.

Food was so good. We started with the bread and roasted tomatoes with burrata. Shared a salad and then shared a pasta and a short rib special. The bill was over $100 for three of us, (and we didn’t have any alcoholic drinks which would have probably pushed it closer to $200) so it’s not a place we’d eat every week. But for a special occasion, it’s a wonderful choice.

Our server, James was excellent and the food was fantastic. The only change I would make would be to suggest they pace the small plates - not bring them all out at once.

Some food items were great—‘the Bruschetta, Osso Bucco, Polenta. The risotto that was served with the Osso Bucco was terrible. (The rice was bland and the texture was off). Also the server was a bit sarcastic. When we said one of the people in our party was gluten intolerant he’s asked if she will die. Completely in appropriate! And his wine knowledge was ok but he only recommend expensive wines. I would go back for the bruschetta and Osso Bucco but with so many amazing restaurants in Austin it probably won’t be anytime soon ....

Pasta special and bolognese were awesome. Pollo diavolo was the standout hit at our table, though. Great wine list. Slightly smoky smell all around the restaurant because of the wood oven, so some people may be sensitive to the smell.

Arrived and was seated right away. However Took a while before we even got water. Somewhere around 15 minutes. Was told waiter was opening a bottle of wine which was odd for that to delay everything else. Place was busy and maybe understaffed. But all in all it was a pretty good meal. Carpaccio was outta this world good but the dry aged porterhouse and pasta dishes were all 2.5 outta 5 if made to grade. Nothing made me feel like I really had to get back for another round.

Vongole pasta was so salty and dry and the clams smelled fishy. It was not worth paying $28 (plus tax) for the pasta. Gnocchi pasta was OK, but not impressive as well for its price ($26).

It is a very nice place, but avoid during SXSW, people in flip flops and shorts looking for a party are allowed entrance to eat.
