Italian with style

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

We meant to have dinner but we did not have reservations. We were put on wait list and told that we could have drinks at the bar in the back of the restaurant. We sat at the bar that had heaters and a TV and ordered drinks and food off of the Happy Hour menu. When they came to call... More

This is one of my favorite consistently good, small Italian restaurants. All the food is excellent, but if you love Lasagne, you've found the place to eat it. The type of Lasagne changes daily, but the quality does not. One day might be brisket Lasagne, another day, Italian sausage. I also love the Butternut Squash Ravioli with walnuts and sage... More

Before my review, I have to say that the manager gave us a gift card for a future meal as a way to, in her words, "apologize" for the delays in salads and dinners. I also have to say that our meals were outstanding though not as hot as they should have been. I had stuffed chicken; other meals were... More

Found the staff very easy going and friendly. the food was fantastic, the classics were great but the chef specials were dynamite. This place is a must do for a great Italian meal at a good price.
