Quintessential Austin Cooking
East Side Café Vespaio Enoteca Asti
“East Side Cafe for farm-to-table food from their garden; Vespaio Enoteca for the amazing pastas and charcuterie; and Asti for the breadsticks and affogato.”

“It’s the most inviting restaurant space in town where the food and service are both top-notch. And it’s got the best chicken strips for kids!”
