    A great Italian dining experience, from the wine and appetizers to dessert. Even though it has three $s, if you 're careful you can keep it to two $s. Offers both traditional and modern Italian fare.

    If you're looking for a relaxing escape from SXSW madness, this delightful Italian restaurant is near the Convocation Center. Pasta, wine and dessert. What more can you ask for? - Erica Swallow

    Great atmosphere and the food was good. Disappointing lunch experience from staff. Waiters were very friendly just not as attentive as I am used to for this type of restaurant.

    Ask for their gluten free menu. They do gluten free bread, pizza and pasta. Great quiet retreat from #sxsw

    Been here 10+ times
    It's been around for 30yrs. so I forget about it, but love it! You must try the Lobster Ravioli. They also have a great Sunday brunch.

    Relax here for a quiet dinner. Choose a pasta and wine. Don't skip the tiramisu. If you enjoyed the music, tip the accordion player appropriately.

    The lobster special and the beef stroganoff are to die for...neither is on the menu. Ask for it.

    If you are driving in and out, make sure your car headlights are illuminated when you leave. The valet turned mine off. Dangerous on many levels.

    Avoid this place - I'd go to La Traviata or Vespaio if you are downtown and looking for good italian.

    Amico che vieni dall'Italia non perdere il sorriso entrando in questo luogo che dell'Italia ha solo gli stereotipi. Il fisarmonicista è bravo ma Suona solo "il padrino" e l'insalata di Pisa non pende
