    Had a terrible experience, first off, made a reservation to be sat in the worse table closest to the door while there were plenty of open spots through out the restaurant. We had a late reservation so the dinner rush was over. Moved to the bar instead, which started off promising but the was told they were out of bread and olive oil app to be then recommended the same thing with just prosciutto on top. Ordered entrees, a salad and a noodle dish at the same time as app to then wait over an hour and a half for it. We saw folks come in, order drinks, order food, eat and leave before we saw our food. We asked about the food and our original bartender vacated the side of the bar to make drinks for the restaurant, never to check up again. Restaurant was not busy and back up bartender had to figure out what was taking so long. Was never told any reason for the delay and the food looked rushed, salad was bland, hardly any toppings, and portions were tiny. Value was trash. Definitely would not recommend this location. I’ve enjoyed my experience at their Dallas location but the Austin location is definitely not held to the same standard. Don’t waste your time here.

    The food was good as usual but the service was not. We only saw the waitress about four times. We had to remind her that we hadn’t gotten part of our order and she never checked back to ask if we needed refills or anything else. Expected better.

    Went to dinner before a concert and the hostess was very accommodating. The waitress seemed a bit bothered by us in general. Rolled her eyes when we didn’t order alcohol and then kind of forgot about us after the food was delivered. She commented again when we didn’t order dessert. Maybe it was a personality thing, but more than one person at the table noticed and commented. Food was good- nice ambiance and convenient location to the ACL Moody Theater. We usually over tip since it is a weekend night and we know most people drink- her attitude made us think twice.

    I called and made a reservation for my girlfriend's birthday and after setting the reservation we had one more of her friends say she was going to be able to make it from out of town. I called and asked to add another to our party (on a Friday night during their dinner rush) and they were able to make it happen. The staff was great and went above and beyond the make sure she had a good experience. Thank you!

    Margherita pizza was delicious. As was the tequila based cocktail of the day. Busy at lunch, downtown location, many business lunch diners. Our waitress was attentive. Only 👎🏽: Zucca chips. Looks like we got the bottom of the bowl, mostly broken bits, very salty. Won’t be ordering that next time.

    Brianna was amazing!! They changed the Bolognese. That was the entire reason we went. And it was not good. Everything else we had was great!! The meatballs, the pizza, and the garlic bread that she recommended. The shining star was Briana. Best waitress I’ve ever had at any restaurant!!

    Well we eat here often however we came for birthday dinner. Most things we ordered somehow came out wrong and we were certain she was getting our tables mixed up with another one. We would tell her the order was messed up and she come back and say oh but I asked you about this of that. But we never discussed any specifics of the actual item we are ordering other than what we wanted. For example my daughter ordered the grilled chicken with Alfredo noodles and vegetables and we just requested new Alfredo sauce on it for them to be butter noodles because the cream can upset her stomach. Order ice tea but somehow they made green tea instead. My kid asked for water but she insisted she “try” the lemonade she didn’t like it but we were charged for it. We got something different and no veggies on it. Ordered the grilled olive oil bread and got the truffle garlic bread. Just little things like that. Disappointing to say the least.

    Service was beyond slow. Order was screwed up and when they corrected it it was still screwed up. I think they have a low bar for their service and quality. We have gone to this location well over 50 times. The trend has been pretty consistently down so we won’t be going back. Fortunately there many other good choices in Austin

    Went here expecting to try amazing food but it was just ok. The Zucchini chips were burnt and the pasta was too aldente. Kids playing around us and we sat next to a very loud and rude person. The server was nice though. I guess for the prices I was expecting a little more upscale experience.

    After being seated it took almost 15 minutes to get water or a server. Placed a drink order which then took another 15 minutes, while a wrong order of food was delivered to our table. The server disappeared 15-20 minutes at a time, no genuine concern for the experience. It was a special occasion and we were very disappointed with the evening, especially after the price tag that came along with it.

    We tried this place during a surprise birthday trip to Austin from Houston. The decor and ambience were very nice; not too casual, not too upscale. However, "dressed up" for Austin men still means shorts, which we found funny. Our waiter was very nice, great service with bar recommendations afterwards, as this place is within walking distance to 6th and 4th streets The food was very good, the spicy rigatoni was definitely spicy for my wife. The value was definitely good, without breaking the bank. We will definitely be back.

    Excellent food! Short staffed, slow service. We wouldn’t have minded but we had a concert to make. Acoustics make it very loud when crowded, we had to talk super loud to each other. Still, a restaurant I like to return to regardless of a couple minor impositions.
