Bambino

Restauranteur-chef duo Adam Orman and Fiore Tedesco opened their second restaurant, Bambino, in March 2024. Bambino brings a "grown-up sensibility" to the spirit of the 1980s, following the pair's success with L'Oca d'Oro in Mueller.

979 Springdale, Ste. 153, 512/368-3366

L'Oca d'Oro

The concept is Italian, but more lower case than many in that crop. At L'oca, there’s not really anything here that exists outside of those traditions, but there are no belabored attempts to make everything autentico. Like it's simple housemade pasta, showiness isn’t really the point.

1900 Simond, 737/212-1876

Patrizi's

From a trailer at the Vortex, Patrizi's quietly serves up some of the best pasta dishes in town. But they aren't just about the classics. Check out the monthly dinner night.
