Glad I kept this reservation!

Although service was very good and very accommodating, this restaurant is dark and old on the inside. They have a patio, but even the patio doesn't stand out. The food is nothing to remember, it is just average italian. I will not be back...

While shopping in the SoCo area, one of the store clerks recommended we eat dinner at Botticelli's and it was a great suggestion! You do need a reservation. We lucked out because we were there on a chilly, rainy Thursday evening so the crowd was down. I enjoyed the Butternut Squash Ravioli and my husband had the lasagna. Bread was... More

I went here with 2 girlfriends, as a last minute decision as to where to have dinner while we were on a short/long weekend in Austin. Boy were we glad we happened upon it, just a brief walk from the Austin Motel, where we stayed. The bartender was really great, and a charming guy, he offered my friends samples of... More

I usually go here with friends during the SXSW fun on SoCo and enjoy the food and the music in the back patio!! When available we grab the table out front and watch the whole SXSW scene as it walks by and listen to the music drifting up the street from the many venues!!

We stumbled upon this place while waiting to see some live music on South Congress Street in Austin and decided to have a light snack before the show. The bar tender, Jeremy was very welcoming- the peach sangria was delicious! My friend Linda had a glass of red wine, which she didn't like- Jeremy happily switched her over to Sangria... More

Great menu and service. The stuffed bread appetizer could have been a meal by itself. The sausage lasagna was excellent and a little spicey.

Another visitor recommended the lasagna, the restaurant and the back patio to me. Luckily I found it, as I did not rent a vehicle; it wasn't difficult to find, it's pretty well next door to the Continental Club. Yes, the price was at least $5.00 more than my favorite lasagne in an equally 'grand' restaurant in my home city. The... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal here on a Thursday night. We were seated in the back beer garden, under heaters due to the chill, and it was very festive. Inside is best described as a neighborhood Italian Bistro feel. We loved the Botticelli's bread appetizer which was bread stuffed with meat and cheese. Our group also enjoyed the Veal Meatballs, and... More

Our dining experience at Botticelli's was very good but I would not consider this a must do. The restaurant is small and intimate although it was a beautiful night and we choose to dine outdoors in the back patio area. We started out with the Happy Bread which is recommended and were quite pleased with recommendations made by our server... More
