“Best Authentic Italian Food in Central Texas (RR/Austin Metro Area)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

Good for Couples, Families, Friends, Solo.
No matter who you go with you will enjoy this restaurant. It is extremely delicious Italian food. Authentic italian, not a franchise. Their pastas are absolutely delicious, you can taste all flavors. It is a "Little-Italy" kind of experience. The freshness of the ingredientes is awesome.
Their service is fantastic, you can tell an italian family is running the place.

You do need some time, because at times it takes a while to get your food (like when you go to Italy where eating is an experience not a rushed fast-food experience). The ambience is great. They have some live music at nights during the week. Their pizzas are good.

I have been there many times as a couple, with the whole big family (siblings, grandparents, parents, grandchildren) and everyone enjoys going there. Going solo is also good, the waitress gives you conversation and are very friendly. You know a place that you get the sense that they treat you like family or friend.

It is truly the best Italian restaurant in Central Texas.
If you are looking for a fast-paced place this is not for you.

“Go hungry - delicious home cooked Italian meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

This place is amazing. Not a chain and it shows. The service is wonderful too. The sauces are rich and nicely reduced. Flavors pop. I recommend going for lunch if you want to take advantage of some wonderful combo deals.

“Great Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

Have eaten here before, but this time we ordered pizza. We were much more impressed. Great dough that was light and tasty. Topping were fresh and sauce was perfect. We can't wait to go back. For an east coast transplant, real good pizza is not easy to find in central Texas.

“Below average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

Got take out greasy soggy pizza. Big let down pizza hut would have been better. Had to go back because items were let out. They don't support the military either. Would never go back. The high reviews are bogus.

“Good place for Italian.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

I have been here once before and wasn't that impressed, however, this time was better. We had a small wait which is typical for a weekend night. The food overall was pretty good. I wish I would have tried the dessert. There was a big table next to us that did and it looked delicious. The service could have been a little better. We had to ask for refills and our glasses were nearly empty. Had our server been more attentive he would have noticed. I will be coming back here and supporting local business in Round Rock.
