Location and contact

Italic is a rustic Italian offering from renowned chef Andrew Curren of ELM Restaurant Group (24 Diner, Easy Tiger Bake Shop & Beer Garden, Irene's). Centrally located in downtown Austin, this approachable restaurant is open daily for lunch, happy hour and dinner. Start with antipasti selections ranging from cured meats, Italian cheeses, olives and house-marinated produce to house-baked focaccia. Next, select a rustic pizza or entrée such as roasted half chicken or Florence-style T-bone steak, all of which are made in our top-of-the-line American-built pizza oven. Farm-to-table selections include seasonally rotating pastas - perfect with a cocktail or selection from our 100-percent Italian wine list curated by Master Sommelier Craig Collins.

Great location other than lack of cheaper parking. Walkable to many other things to do in Austin. Food was good. No real complaints. Service was good as well.

The bread and tea are delicious. I was in the mood for traditional Italian food. There is none there. The dishes are very hipster and twisted in strange ways just to make them “different.” For example, the cheese in my ravioli had lemon in it....More
