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.

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

The SoCo area is a bustling, "in" scene, but Botticelli's is something of an oasis in its midst. Small, not noisy, busy but welcoming staff, knowledgeable and attentive (but not intrusive) service, and good food. Three of us had dinner -- an order of the "original" Bottticelli's bread, an entrée each, and a bottle of Chianti. More than enough for... More

We were looking for some good Italian food where we didn't have to drive all the way downtown. We sat out back in the garden where the atmosphere was casual and the food was terrific. The flavors were unique and you could tell they were homemade. The service was excellent even though they were quite busy on a Saturday night.... More

This is a small place with a big flavor. We had wonderful wine and tried different salads and entrées. Everything was fantastic. I had the raviolis - both the mushroom and squash. The mushroom was rich and creamy. The squash was fresh, sweet and spicy - a unique blend indeed. Dinner dishes start at $20 and go up - Reservations... More

A nice intimate place in the midst of SoCo. The food is great (try the lasagna!) and the beer garden out back offers a less formal dining scene. Great to some solid Chicago influence on the block.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our concierge. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere, food, and service was excellent. I would visit Botticelli's again when in Austin.

The atmosphere was a little funky, typical for a place in an old building. The food was great! I had the Napoleon salad. Red and yellow beets where sliced stuffed with soft cheese, reconstructed and quartered. These were served with baby greens. The dressing was one of the best I ever had. The meat ball and pasta main course was... More

Just a little place on South Congress but fantastic. A lovely Caprese salad with some wonderful Balsamic followed by their Pansotti di Fungo. Scrumptious! and just a touch of Red wine

Christmas time and the boys decided it was a good evening to go out and enjoy the sites of Austin. My son-in-law, who lives in Austin, picked out the entertainment for the evening. This was our second stop and time for dinner. Could not have been happier with our dinner location. Small and not too large we sat near the... More
