Description: 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.

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 back and, I believe, they have the same or similar menu.

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 it alone. I had the Pollo alla Picatta (aka Chicken Picatta) and it was awesome. The rest had Anatra due Maniere, (duck breast confit with ravioli and a fig sauce), Costolette d’ Agnello (lamb chops) and Filetto di Manzo (beef filet with a red currant sauce). The food was beautifully presented and exquisite. Everybody was very happy. They have a good wine selection and a real bar for an aperitif. My friend from Belgium ordered a French 75 cocktail and they made a perfect one. Absolutely a great place for an elegant dinner!

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 heard them say there is also an outside area. Outstanding wine list! We started with salads, which were huge! My friend ordered the butternut squash ravioli and I had the lamb. Her ravioli was extremely salty - tasted like it was in the pasta and not the sauce - mentioned it to the waiter who immediately took it to the owner - they found out that someone had been cooking it in the wrong water. Offered to replace the meal, but we moved on to espressos and dessert. (The lamb was great by the way.). Tiramisu was phenomenal. They comped both of our espressos and desserts - which was absolutely unnecessary and we tried to decline! We left a good tip as a thank you - will definitely be back!
