Outside, the 100-year-old barn has all the expected adornments—a windmill, antlers mounted over the awning, a corrugated-metal roof. It's inside where things turn unexpected. Century-old Italian memorabilia hangs from the rustic siding. Servers mix caesar salads at tables draped in red-and-white tablecloths and surrounded by chairs with basket-weave backs. This fusion of Italian restaurant and Texas barn may seem an unlikely union, but there's a simple logic to it. When the Cavatore family came to the United States, it came from the pastoral regions of Northern Italy, a rich agriculture area known for its wine, truffles, and herds of wild colanders. Thus, converting the barn to a restaurant made sense, as it both embraced the family's Italian heritage and hearkened back to their countryside roots. In addition to serving the flavors of their homeland, the family members also keep their wine list heavy on Italian selections.

In 1969, Colonel Eure opened the first Mr. Gatti's Pizza in Austin. The small pizza shop—which received its moniker from his wife’s maiden name—focused on handcrafting pies using real cheese, yeast-risen dough, and a signature tangy sauce. Today, more than 40 years later, the Mr. Gatti’s Pizza has expanded into 140+ locations across 13 states. But despite the brand’s growth, its mission to make quality eats remains the same.
At one of Mr. Gatti’s appetizing outposts, patrons can build-their-own pie with fresh toppings, or select favorite pizzas such as the bacon double cheeseburger loaded with smoked provolone, beef, and bacon. Sides including four-cheese breadsticks and spicy chicken wings round out plates, and dessert pizzas topped with apples and streusel offer a sweet end to a savory meal. The restaurants also provide hot and cold buffet bars, allowing guests to sample every item on the menu without having to sneak into the kitchen.
As a young chef just starting out, Jason Tallent had cooked his way up the ladder, working directly under James Beard Foundation Award–winning chefs. After moving to Austin, he took the reins on the 34th Street Café, designing a farm-to-table menu of upscale New American comfort food. He and his team layer hormone-free meats and local, organic veggies to revamp beloved lunch sandwiches such as the BLT, Reuben, or ham and swiss. During the dinner rush, the menu throws on its formal wear for dishes such as crispy risotto with truffle cheese or panko-crusted chicken picatta drizzled with beurre blanc and sprinkled with capers. Affable owner Eddie Bernal keeps the restaurant’s laser-like focus on serving ethical, delicious café cuisine, while high ceilings and a spacious dining room offer guests plenty of room to relax during lunch, dinner, or Twister matches that determine who’s picking up the tab.
360 Pizza Company showcases flavors from across the globe, and does so in the form of gourmet pizzas. With its own made-from-scratch dough, sauces, and tomatoes imported from Italy, the business relies on the traditional pizza structure to offer not-so-traditional pies, including ones inspired by Greece, Mexico, and Latin America. 360's global theme also carries over into its wings, which get coated in a Vietnamese-style sauce, and its baked sandwiches, which feature rotated breads influenced by worldly regions. Customers can enjoy their pizza pies in a variety of methods, including dine-in with BYOB, carry-out, take-and-bake, delivery, and an all-you-can-eat buffet.
