Italian
Sammie’s is a little taste of old Italy in downtown Austin. It celebrates the great ‘red sauce’ institution—inspired by old school, legendary Italian-American restaurants. The menu offers classic dishes in a casual but sophisticated, retro-designed space that is both lively and comfortable, capturing the essence of a night out at your favorite neighborhood joint. The space consists of a central dining room overlooking Shoal Creek and 6th Street, polished wood bar, Mildred’s Room (a private dining/wine room), and wraparound patio dining area.


The menu offers riffs on standards including Housemade Mozzarella Sticks, Clams Casino, and Caesar Salad a la Tommy; timeless pastas like Spaghetti with Meatballs, and Linguine Vongole; and Sammie’s Classics: big portions of iconic plates like Chicken and Eggplant Parmigiana, Veal Marsala, and Baked Manicotti.

Food was excellent! We shared 3 apps all were very good dinner we had veal parmigiana was very tender and a special which was pasta and lobster in a spicy marinara sauce. Dessert was also very good with the New York cheesecake, tiramisu and the chocolate molten cake. Very nice wine selection. We will definitely be back!

I am a HUGE fan of everything MML does, this is no exception. This space has been only open for about a week so I know it will get better. Some of the items were not steller as would be expected from this group, but it is very new so I will absolutely be back. Drinks 10, Service 10, Ambiance 10, Some of the items were not warm or properly seasoned, but again all this is new. -

The atmosphere was great but very very loud. We had trouble hearing our friends at the same booth by about 7:30.

The food was superb and the service excellent. The only complaint was that the burrata appetizer was way to small for four. Wish they had said we might need another app.

Will return!

Sammie’s absolutely nailed it. The Italian food was second-to-none in Austin. They’ve got my highest recommendation! What a blast!

It feels like being in an authentic Italian restaurant. Something Austin was missing until now!

Best Italian in Austin— hands down. Austin has needed a good traditional Italian restaurant for a long time. This is it.
