What was once a town with very few viable Italian options is now a city that’s home to an ever-growing number of them. But even so, only a select few of them are actually great - and L’Oca d’Oro is in that small group.
Located in one of those personality-less outdoor complexes over in Mueller, you might not expect the place to churn out food this impressive. But from the brisket meatballs to the pastas to the wine list, everything we’ve tried on the light-ish Italian menu has been great. And, surprise, it turns out that it’s pretty enjoyable to eat such upscale-feeling food in such a laid-back feeling environment. Hit this place for a date at the big bar, or come with a group and sit in the dining room.
