What You'll Get
The best way to capture a wild, rampaging meal is to hook it with a gigantic pasta lasso. Test your throwin' arm with today's deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of food at Ciola’s Italian-American Restaurant.
The traditional Italian pasta, steaks, and seafood on Ciola’s menu are crafted from family recipes passed down for more than 50 years. While sipping tomato-basil and minestrone zuppas ($3/cup, $5/bowl) and crunching a romaine-founded, red-wine-vinaigrette-drenched insalata di casa ($3/side, $6/entree), the tongue tap dances on a crispy stage. Since Italian eating would not be possible without nutritional noodles, Ciola’s submits various pastas for consumption. Slurp truffle-creamed ravioli al tartufo ($18) or shrimp linguine puttanesca ($16). Steaks and chops ($24–$28), pesce ($18–$22), and plenty of pollo e vitello ($15–$19) promise satisfaction to as many pabulum preferences as there are pizza-shaped constellations in the night sky.
Uncle Dominick Ciola launched the first Ciola’s in 1949 with nothing more than a single stick of uncooked spaghetti and a few cherry tomatoes. Since then, the locally owned business has specialized in offering high-quality service, maintaining a pacific dining atmosphere, and kicking off the day with morning games of marbles played with meatballs in the back parking lot.

The Austin Chronicle says:
- Ciola's is the type of restaurant you would find in Manhattan's Little Italy or Boston's North End -- good, hearty Italian-American food served in comfortable surroundings. – Wes Marshall
- Everything about the décor and the service at Ciola's makes you feel right at home. Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Louis Prima on the sound system create just the right atmosphere in which to enjoy yourself over Italian food. – Virginia B. Wood
