Hand made food and they pay livable wages. We loved everything we ordered. The peperocini pasta was a top 10 things we've ever eaten. Also had some kind of crispy balls, carrots and a marvelous chicken dish. Very vegetarian friendly. Great wine selection. Don't go if you are in a rush.

This was one amazing meal that we will be talking about for some time. They have four seating opportunities. One outside on the patio, the second one is high seating next to a massive glass wall overlooking plaza for people watching, or you can choose to sit at the bar looking at the activities in the open kitchen, and lastly the formal dining room that had what I felt was a more intimate space that I wasn't dressed up for. But come on date night and sit in fine dining. Come after work and sit at the bar. Now the food is local sourced from the Austin area. And all the dishes are made in house. They are made to share and scrumptious. Save room for dessert.

Service and staff were fine. The low rating is for the portions and prices, which are absurdly out of whack. My wife and I got a simple greens salad, two small pasta dishes, and a torta only drinking water and the total bill was over $70. Should we have gotten drinks, it would have gotten to be a hundred dollar dinner. And the pastas really don't have much protein, so it's mainly just handmade noodles and sauce. The quality is good but not memorable. A meal at that pricey with portions that small (made of relatively cheap ingredients) should really affect you with its flavor and preparation. This most certainly did not.
