Italic is trying very hard to make upscale Italian work in Austin. It mostly succeeds, especially if you focus on the food, and not on the sterile, somewhat out of place environment.

We should start by warning you the decor here is pretty soulless - the restaurant seems more like it should be in Santa Monica than off North Congress. And it can also get expensive: you’ll need to spend a bit in order in to get the most out of your meal.

The food, however, is very good. The carb bomb fiesta of a menu will send you home a happy customer. There isn’t a lot of quality Italian food in Austin, and this is some of the best.

Bucatini All’Amatriciana

With its pork belly, tomatoes, chili, and pecorino, this is our favorite of their pasta dishes. It’s extremely rich and will take you down.

Soppressata Salami Pizza

Pizza with honey? And spicy meats? You cannot pass that up.

Proscuitto Salsa Verde Pizza

Many of our favorite things, all rolled into one pizza: eggs, parmesan, and proscuitto. This is a serious pizza that should be ordered as a third option to share if you have a larger group.
