Description: Botticelli’s South Congress is a fun and tasty Italian restaurant located...
Botticelli’s South Congress is a fun and tasty Italian restaurant located in the heart of the exciting "SOCO" district. Botticelli's serves fresh and delicious Italian food combining old family recipes with new, inventive ones. Andrew and Matt Botticelli are the proud owners and are made even more proud by the food that Botticelli's delivers through its amazing staff. There are both an intimate dining room up front and a large beautiful beer garden out back, where there is live music Thursday through Saturday night. Full menu is available inside or out and at either bar. Look forward to seeing you soon.

Delish happy hour menu, and terrific dinners too!

One of our faves in SoCo..you can't go wrong here. Lovely back patio with great ambience and live music on certain evenings. The pastas are authentically Italian...just like mom's.

Stopped in on a whim while exploring the Soco district. I got the butternut squash while the husband ordered the chicken piccata. Both were so excellent, we left nothing behind. The beer garden would've been nice if it weren't full of cigarette smoke so we ended up sitting inside.

Excellent bistro in the heart of Austin's soco neighborhood. Food is great. Bartender had great wine recommendation. Seared duck breast was outstanding. Service was so-so but otherwise very nice.

The Italian food is wonderful with great selections on the menu. We had a group of nine (made a reservation for a large group via phone a week or so ahead) and everyone loved it. There is a back outdoor area, but the main indoor part of the restaurant is so nice that I would highly recommend it for a... More

Everything is locally sourced and beautifully prepared. They have all the usual pasta choices, as well as a delicious salmon entree and several tasty meat selections. The food here can be very rich, so... More
