Description: 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.

This is not the same ol' Italian standards one is usually finds. I love a menu that surpises and entices with new combinations of fresh ingredients. Botticellis surpassed my expectations. I had read the previous reviews and had been intrigued. I found that not only were the dishes creative and the flavors superbly balanced, but the dishes were beautifully cooked... More

Pricey, but delicious food. My husband enjoyed the duck, I had the ravioli stuffed with mushroom and herbs. Appetizers were yummy. Great service.

This place is one of the best. It's small (cozy) and has a fairly limited menu, but the food is good quality. Three types of meatballs, flavorful ravioli and i think we had Gnocchi too? Get a bottle of wine and enjoy the atmosphere.

I saw a story on this restaurant and decided to check it out. They were booked inside when I visited but I got a table outside. Our food was delicious, service was great, drinks were well made and the house menu has some good choices, entertainment was just right for the setting. It can get a bit hot outside, but... More

Excellent location on South Congress. Easy to reserve (used Open Table online) for 4, but fills up quickly. Well known for their Botticelli Bread - it will NOT disappoint. My group ordered different seafoods and shared - mussels, fire shrimp and scallops. Awesome! We thoroughly enjoyed trying a variety of their various cocktails as well as their famous tequila shots...

The owners of this restaurant are from Oak Park, IL, as I am, so I had to stop and check out the food. It was wonderful. The waiter was great, the service was great, the food was fabulous. We went during the week, on a Wednesday, and had a great time. The restaurant was not crowded, but the food was... More

We visited Bottichelli's several times on our recent trip to Austin. The restaurant (inside) is really tiny, and can get pretty loud, but it was a fun experience. The service was great, and I was impressed they were able to work around my food allergy with ease. There is also an outdoor sitting area in the back with live music,... More

We have been to Botticelli's a few times and it has been pretty good - not great - but good enough to have on the repeat list. This trip they sat the four of us at the table by the window, next to the door - with no option to move at 6pm. This table is so bad that they... More
