Brio Tuscan Grille is located at the Arboretum Shopping Center in Austin, Texas, which is one of the nicest Simon malls. It is like shopping in a park; there are walking trails, lots of oak trees and very well landscaped. Therefore, Brio’s patio dining area is very attractive and inviting. In fact the patio dining is their best feature.
We found that the interior decor is very attractive; however, we felt there could be a higher partitions between the booths and the various dining areas. Although the floors are carpeted we found the dinning to be very noisy. My wife remarked and I agreed it was like eating in Grand Central Station; very noisy.
We had their dinner Chicken Milanese, which was good but not outstanding. For those light eaters, they do split the entrees in the kitchen; this was very nice feature. Service is excellent; the manger visited our table to check how we were enjoying our meal. The visit was more than an appearance; she did spend time and is very engaged in the conversation.
Even though the meal was not exceptional, we do plan to return when the temperature is inviting to their patio dining. The setting is excellent.
