Formerly a very popular trailer, 40 North now serves its craveable Neopolitan pizza out of a homey house near the Downtown ACC campus. The Hot Honey – tomato, ricotta, coppa, parm, fresno chile pepper, Mike's Hot Honey – is a cult favorite.
Winner of 2011’s Best of Austin Critics Pick for Best Dinner Destination on a Damp, Cold Night, this place is about as authentically Italian as you can get without jumping on a plane to Parma. Antipasti, Neopolitan pizza, and a good wine list make for good shelter here.
