Do you love Italian food?
We all do. That's why we dedicate ourselves to finding the best places to enjoy amazing cuisine in Austin. Being a big fan of Italian cuisine, I scouted out the top Italian eateries throughout Austin. When the craving of authentic Italian cuisine strikes you, La Traviata will hit the spot for you. It has become one of Austins most popular and acclaimed restaurants since July 2000, and Chef Marion Gillcrist offers seasonal fresh and elegant Italian inspired cuisine in the warmest of settings. Their hospitality mirrors the love and respect that they put into their menu.
This restaurant has been in the same spot and in the same family for years. The large menu is traditional Italian with many entrees less than 20 dollars. High quality and fresh ingredients are used. A number of the chicken dishes require an half hour additional preparation time. Always a good sign.The service, even on a busy evening, was excellent: efficient, friendly and helpful. We shared a caprese salad that was delicious. My husband had scallops and I had a chicken breast stuffed with asparagus and some cheese. Both were very flavorful without being rich or cloying. The restaurant is easily accessible by public transportation. The decor, predictable by the name, speaks volumes for its decor. We had a fine time...and you will too.
