While Loca D’Oro falls on the modern end of the Italian spectrum, Red Ash is definitely a more classic experience. Right in the middle of downtown, the space might look industrial, but the food is traditional - and some of the best Italian stuff we’ve found in this town. Get the roasted vine tomatoes and burrata (with a side of hot & crispy country bread) and the osso buco Milanese and it’ll suddenly become clear what Austin’s been missing out on.
