We didn't mean to come here. We were going to go to a more popular (definitely in trip advisor terms) italian restaurant on 5th Street but a seemingly honest review on another site by a New Yorker with Italian heritage put us off in a big way. We were then going to go to an Indian near Sagra but as there was an hour's wait we tried Sagra. So glad we did. The place was buzzing and had an Italian feel. Our Sicilian waiter brought our calamari, platter of mixed salamis and cheeses(real blue cheeses) with walnuts crisp breads and honey and bruschetta (which was too thick bread and rather average). We then had boar osso buco with saffron risotto (overcooked but tasty) and some pretty good, thin pizzas. This was washed down with a gluggable Nero D'Avola and finished off with wonderful chocolate mousse cake and blood orange sorbet. All the salads, tomatoes, basil etc are grown by the restaurant. The pasta is homemade as is the mozzarella and all the sorbets. They also source ingredients from local farmers and artisans.
As I am of Italian extraction and
know about food I really feel I can rate this pretty highly. All I can say is that I will certainly be back when net in Austin.
