    There aren't very many vegetarian options but you can ask for the chef to make an amazing veggie dish based off of the days specials. It's good and always different. Its about $25-30.

    Your Perfect Day in Austin wouldn't be complete without a beef tenderloin at Paggi House. Get here early so that you can watch the city's resident bats venture out from under Congress Ave. Bridge!

    The elegant, inviting Paggi House has just about everything going for it. Try Paggi’s take on sweetbreads: Softly roasted with cremini mushrooms, it melts into a creamy sherry vinegar sauce. Read more
