Owner is from Chicago so you know that the food is awesome! Love that he has a picture of Ditka and a Bears helmet over the bar! Great spot!

Hey cub fans yes Chicagoans Get over to Botticelli for a savorous supper. It's Rosells in a Texas backyard. Started by sharing s heart grandma's bread with great cocktails. A little salad and then fresh homemade pasta and meatballs. Good this side of Fierenze! A wee pricey but classy place. Thanks

Found this little gem by chance, while in town for Moto GP. Great ambience, awesome staff (Candice was simply superb), and the best pasta I have had in a while. Wine selection is good but could use more variety. This is definitely one of our fave places in Austin!

This is a very small, intimate restaurant with a hidden back area that is outdoors and often hosts live music. Great drinks, servers have always been on the mark and food is delicious in the Italian flare. It gets booked up quickly so might be difficult to get into without a reservation but you can always head straight to the... More

It’s a small and intimate restaurant on South Congress, perfect for a date or friends. They have a nice back patio beer garden but it was a raining so the 4 of us ate inside. First you must get the Botticelli Bread appetizer. Fresh baked bread stuffed with rosemary, prosciutto, salami, mozzarella and parmesean. You could make a meal of... More

In the midst of a week of steak dinners, I was looking for a change when we wandered into Botticelli's for a drink and decided to stay for dinner. What a treat to find that unique Italian meal with fresh ingredients. From appetizers, main course, desert & wines it was a pleasant surprise for each. We'll done!

My friend and I were in town and wanted some good Italian food - we found Botticelli's on Trip Advisor and it sounded great. We made a reservation and our table was ready when we got there. Our waiter was fantastic! The main dining room is small and tables are close together, so it is a little loud, but I... More

Tiny indoor restaurant though comfortable outdoor weather-protected dining. Fun birthday dinner in cosy environment went very well. We brought our flowers and cake. Very professional service and the food was yummy. We all had various appetizers and veal dishes. The folk singer was okay, though not especially festive music. Good experience overall. Would recommend.

A HUGE THANK YOU TO BOTTICELLI'S! They were able to fit my party on short notice. We had an incredible time and the food was AMAZING! I personally think they have the best Italian food in Austin. It's a beautiful little spot tucked away on South Congress. It's a great place for couples as it's not a large space, so... More

We hit Botticelli's at Happy Hour and enjoyed a perfectly concocted Chicago style Bloody Mary served with a side of about 4 oz. of Lone Star. A delicious Caesar salad for $5 on the Happy hour menu was just the right mix of Parmesan and lemon. But the dish that brought us in was the RAVIOLI DI ZUCCA GIALLA-Housemade raviolis... More

Botticelli’s South Congress is a fun and tasty Italian restaurant located in the heart of the exciting "SOCO" district. Botticelli's serves fresh and delicious Italian food combining old family recipes with new, inventive ones. Andrew and Matt Botticelli are the proud owners and are made even more proud by the food that Botticelli's delivers through its amazing staff. There are both an intimate dining room up front and a large beautiful beer garden out back, where there is live music Thursday through Saturday night. Full menu is available inside or out and at either bar. Look forward to seeing you soon.
