We’ve all been fans of the original Lucky's Puccias food truck, and are thrilled to see a brick and mortar location open up with an expanded menu and hours. Partially funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign, the new brick and mortar location has added authentic Italian pizza and salads to their menu.

La Traviata Italian Bistro is the perfect locale for intimate lunch or dinner dates, celebratory occasions, or catching up with girlfriends over a glass of wine.

Austin's pizza scene continues to grow with the opening of a new Italian restaurant on South Lamar, aRoma Italian Kitchen & Bar.

Regal Ravioli: Homemade Pasta in a Downhome Setting

Austin has no shortage of food trailers, but Regal Ravioli on South First is one that I continue to hear great things about. Plus, the fact that there is an entire trailer dedicated to ravioli is just too quirky and Austin-y not to check out.

We visited the trailer on a Friday afternoon for lunch. Like most Austin trailers, they have a cute setup with picnic tables and lights for outdoor dining.

Although the menu includes some sandwich options, we couldn’t NOT try this famous ravioli. Unfortunately, they were out of a couple flavors on the day we went, but we would have loved to try the sausage or one of the day’s specials, Italian braised beef brisket. Instead, we sampled the cheese ravioli, filled with ricotta, mozzarella, romano, lemon zest and fresh nutmeg. This wasn’t like your average bag of frozen ravioli from the grocery store – you can taste the made-from-scratch flavors in every bite.

Once you choose your ravioli, you select a sauce. We opted for the Bolognese with ground beef, pork and prosciutto, and the pesto made with pecans instead of more traditional pine nuts. The pesto was the winner for me. I’ve also heard great things about the sweet potato gnocchi, so that will be on my list to try next time.

Though some think the prices are a bit high ($11-13 per dish), the portions are pretty generous and include 3 ample slices of delicious garlic bread. Plus, it’s far less than you’d pay at an Italian restaurant for homemade pasta. The dishes also come conveniently served in to-go-ready containers.
