Austin has so many options for dinner - it is easy to become overwhelmed and have a difficult time making a choice. This restaurant was close to our hotel and was recommended by friends so we gave it a shot. Everyone enjoyed their dinner - carnivores and vegetarians alike. It's not cheap but the food is well prepared and we... More

My wife and I ate here last Friday. Ginna was our server. My wife had a steak and I had spaghetti and meatballs. I also had the mushroom soup. The food was terrific and service was great. The restaurant is a bit smallish on the inside but patio seating is available. I suggest calling ahead for a reservation. Parking is... More

If you're walking along South Congress, you might not expect to find good Italian food, but you'd be wrong. Botticelli's does a great job, and offers a secluded back patio that offers you some respite from the crowds if that's what you want. We both had pasta dishes, but the real star was the pesto. Just wonderful! If you're looking... More

Be sure to check out their backyard patio if the weather is nice. Great food. Great location. A cool idea is to have dinner here and then step next door and hear great live music at the Continental Club!

Really enjoyed this place, exceptionally busy which is a good sign. We sat in the beer garden enjoying the band and several pre dinner drinks prior to our table being ready .. the food was excellent , however the waiters' heart was not in it at all .. gave us used cutlery and was openly keen to finish the night...

We originally were going to eat at Perlas but without reservations were told it was a 2 hour wait. Walking across the street, we found Botticelli's. What a great place. Cozy Italian restaurant run by a great family of ex-Chicagoans. I've never met a more welcoming group of folks. And the food is tremendous. The seared duck breast over duck... More

Not the best Italian I've had, but priced like it was. The pasta used to make the ravioli was too thick for my taste. The cream sauce was good, as was the bread.

Not only does Botticelli's have terrific food, ranging from the straightforward and tasty Italian beef sandwich to shrimp and polenta (love that sauce), to the boar pasta, it also shines with the bar / beer garden out back as a place to relax.

The food is excellent in both presentation and flavor. Service was fantastic and great wine choices. I like the small size of the place, but the noise level is fairly high...we had a booth and I had a difficult time hearing my girlfriend. Overall a very solid dining experience. Great lasagne with unique flavors.

Thank sicboy

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.
