Jeffrey’s of Austin

ASTI Trattoria

From house-made pasta to handcrafted pizza, the seasonal menu reflects simple and traditional trattoria dishes and fresh Italian flavors from Piedmont, Tuscany, Sardinia and everywhere in between.

“It’s small and neighborly,” Sharman Reed said. “The owner and chef always comes by the table to say, “hello” and the food is spectacular. They take reservations, which is a necessity, and, honestly, what’s better than Italian for Valentine’s?”

Tiny Boxwoods

“It’s perfect for friends or families to celebrate Valentine’s Day together,” Kathleen Bucher said. “There’s a great menu downstairs and upstairs is like a backyard part with big screen TV’s, and tons of games like Giant Jenga, Foosball, Shuffleboard, Cornhole and more!”
