Il Brutto comes to us from the New Waterloo family. They’re the same team behind Sway, La Condesa, and South Congress hotel, to name a few. They reign supreme in Austin for being one of the most talented restaurant management groups and so it’s no surprise that Il Brutto is an exciting opening for their team.
Il Brutto is located East Austin, right at the corner of 6th and Comal. It boasts a menu offering pizza, pastas and cheese boards, as well as a full bar and wine list. Nothing was overly presented, just simple straightforward ingredients prepared fresh and made to order.
We dined on pizzas made with prosciutto and mozzarella, bowls of pasta filled with squid ink noodles, and had a bite to eat of all the desserts. Oh and lasagna, definitely get the lasagna!
While the food was delicious, the space is what really got me excited for this opening. It occupies a corner spot so the patio is open to the hustle and bustle of east 6th. It makes for great people watching, but also is just a dreamy little patio offering a nice slice of pie while you kick back with some of your favorite girlfriends. You know the drill, add this into your rotation stat!
