Explore Italian in Austin

The new, returned and coming soon


This cozy Italian restaurant tucked inside The Frances Modern Inn is helmed by the husband-and-wife team behind Intero, Executive Chef Ian Thurwachter and GM & Pastry Chef Krystal Craig. Serving salads and paninis as well as pastas and heavier entrees, it’s a cute place to pop in for lunch or dinner.

American-Italian restaurant and cocktail bar co-founded by Texans, friends and hospitality veterans Joseph Zoccoli, the Executive Chef, and Richard Thomas, the Beverage Director. Equitable attention is given to both the food and the cocktails at this East Austin spot Joseph refers to as “weirdo Italian.”

Coming Soon! The chain in five states and several Texas cities is opening an Austin location on South Lamar this summer. A great happy hour destination it serves up wine along with sharable plates including a variety of charcuterie boards and many different kinds of bruschetta


Bambino is the restaurateur and chef duo behind L’Oca d’Oro’s take on a casual pizza place. They serve classic and seasonal pies and Italian-style soft-serve gelati!

Favorite comeback. A fire temporary shuttered the home of one of the most sought after reservations in town but they’re back and as good as before. More than just pastas (which are plentiful), they have a grill menu featuring several cuts of steaks and other fish options, from halibut on a corn risotto to snapper crudo
