Shio ramen and tsukumen.

The only thing better than ramen is ramen with friends :-)

Yes, you have the "fancy" ramens, but stick to the classics (shio, tonkotsu, tsukumen), and at a pinch, go for the "soba-style" dipping-style ramen. The noodles are excellently textured, and just right to the tooth. The broths are, dare I say it, "profound" (grin), but not overwhelmingly heavy. I personally prefer the "thick" noodles, here, but the thin ones are quite good too...

The ramen is weak - literally (noodles are *slightly* overdone, but the broth is...weak) The Poké is OK tho'

The ramen is good, very very good. The noodles are destination-dining worthy (chewy, tasty, a little bit of snap, just perfect). The ramen isn't particularly heavy. Filling yes, but heavy, no (if you've had great ramen, you'll know what i mean) When you add in the friendly service, sapporo on tap, and sake, well, lets just say its happy-making :-)

Excellent *excellent* desserts. When you add in the ability to have prosecco w/ your dessert of choice, well, what more could you ask for? (OK, admittedly, you can end up w/ diabetes, but still...)

You're here for the atmosphere - "classic austin" at it's finest. Theres a food-truck (Patrizi's), lots of seating, an associated bar with excellent cocktails and beers, great happy-hour pricing, and friendly people (with bug-spray. you *do* have your bug-spray, right?) The pasta isn't bad. Not great, but not bad either. I'd go for the "carbonara" (quotes, 'cos it isn't quite the real thing) - it shows up with a coddled egg-yolk on top. Break it and stir it in, not bad at all. The sides are quite good - the house-made ricotta is delicious, the "bread and beef fat" is tasty (large portions!) and *so* bad for you, and, well, be warned - when they say "garlic", they mean it. All in all, a fun place to hang out

Quite good Italian-cuisine, particularly good for Austin, but definitely a bit of a hit-or-miss affair. Their heart is certainly in the right place though, and between that and the reasonable prices, a lot of the "miss"es are made up for. Hits - Excellent wines on tap, at *very* reasonable prices - An exceptionally good wine list, with "by the glass" selections that are actually worth getting :-) - Good salumi and formaggi (yes, the sopresatta is more like nduja, but whatever) - A bunch of really good antipasti, long on vegetables, and most of which taste fresh (and thats a good thing) - Some of the mains are excellent (the sausage, the lasgna, and the bone-marrow pasta, for example) - The cookies, and the "leaning tower of s'mores" are *excellent* - The staff is *extremely* friendly and helpful, Misses - The pastas are long on "red-sauce" selections. Thankfully, no "alla vodka" around, but they all taste, well, the same - The porchetta should be retired. Its dry, chewy, and, well, bland. (Heck, it should be retired in America - i've *never* had acceptable porchetta here...) - The 'trenette' (in a pink sauce of some kind. meh) were actually something else - wide and flat (sagnarelli perhaps?). You gots to be able to name things correctly :-) - The blueberry crostata dessert (with the pepper creme-fraiche) *really* should be retired. Just Didn't Work. - Loud. Oh lords it's loud. The echo-chamber effect means you, literally, can't hear people across the table... The bottom line, i'll probably be going back. its early days, and I expect it'll get better...
