“Top Italian Food Restaurant in Austion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

My wife and I would like to thank the manager, the bar tender and the waitress who help made our dining experience at Vespaio's so wonderful. We cannot say enough nice things about how we were treated, not to mention the delicious appetizers, salads and our main dishes of quail and lobster. We appreciated not being rushed to finish are bottle of Amarone even though the line for seating was out the door. Can't wait to return!

“Great stop on S Congress!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

This was our stop for a light dinner while touring the hip S. Congress St.
We took a look at the menu while outside and found several good looking choices.
We were greeted quickly when we stepped inside and shown to our table. The server was also fast to acknowledge us and start us off with drinks.
I ordered the Spaghetti bolognese which was very tasty and reasonably priced. My wife ordered a Nicoise salad which came with fresh greens and tuna.
The desserts were also delicious.
Italian is a favorite way to go for dinner and this suggestion is tops while in Austin.

“Excellent Italian food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

Our family of six (kids ages 10-16) enjoyed a wonderful Italian dinner here. There is no kids menu, and the ambience is upscale yet not too formal, so I wouldn't bring more than one child under 10 here, especially if budget is a concern. This place is busy & popular, so reservations are strongly advised. We loved everything we tried, from the delicious warm bread and dip to the fresh tomato/mozzarella salad (on special) to our lamb & fish specials. Younger three kids split pesto handkerchiefs and lasagna (huge portions, even for hungry teen swimmers). Desserts were fantastic! The warm chocolate cake was rich and not too sweet, and I loved my cheesecake with lots of fruit. Kids loved their gelato specials. Our server was friendly & efficient. We will return

“Great Italian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

We ate here while exploring Congress Ave. one night. The food was outstanding. I had the lasagna. It was made with homemade spinach noodles that were so good. The sauce was great. The bread was very good. The whole experience was great and would return. The service was top notch. Great place. We even went next door (they are owned by the same people) and got a cannoli to go. It was made right in front of us and it was great! Great places to go!
