Editorial reviews from the web (3)

This "delightful little" Downtown trattoria is treasured for its "classic" Italian menu, amicable staff and "intimate", "unpretentious" setting; add in "reasonable" bills, and it almost "never disappoints."

If you're tired of Italian restaurant clichés, you'll love this cozy, Euro-chic trattoria, with textured limestone walls complementing the hardwood floors, sleek bar, and sunny yellow walls. The food is just as unfussy and fresh. Chef/owner Marion Gilchrist allows the quality ingredients to take center stage, and creates sauces that are delicious without being overwhelming. That's why such...

Citysearch Editorial Review

Although often filled to capacity, the restaurant feels more cozy than bustling. The stone-walled dining room features a bar and wine racks. While the business crowd populates the scene at lunch,...

A favorite Austin restaurant for us

Average Rating
100

We first discovered La Traviata years ago on a visit to Austin and have tried to return on each visit. This is a small venue on Congress that makes me feel that I am in NYC at one of the small Italian restaurants downtown. The food and service has always been excellent. The pasta is homemade and my wife still...

Excellent food, but $8 for bread

Average Rating

My party of five had a wonderful meal, but I was shocked to see an item "warm bread" on the menu for $8 under appetizers. Really? We passed on this item, and our entrees and desserts were delicious, but I wonder how this establishment justifies charging $8 for bread when almost every other Italian restaurant at which I have eaten...

One my favorites is now extremely questionable, late dinner with spouse and the place was empty, ordered a favorite pasta and a bottle of red, new wine list sucks, our Zin sour and metallic, pasta came very slow, only another table of 4 In house, pasta came without some of the normal flavors and our waitress doned an attitude of...

Cool vibe in a smaller place in DT Austin.
The food was fine, a little overpriced but for a Sunday night supper it was fine.
We had a couple of pasta dishes neither of which was memorable but for the atmosphere and coziness it was alright.

My lady and I ate here on a Thursday night before a show at the Paramount. The restaurant is about four blocks away from the parking garage and theater so it is an easy walk if you are going to dinner before the show.
We did not have a reservation but we should have. We were lucky to get a...

Two of the best wines by the glass are the Tomasi pinot grigio, great with the calamari puttanesca, and Le Calcinale Chianti to complement the spaghetti bolognese.
