Fodor's Expert Review The Backspace
This stylish pizzeria, another hit from chef/restaurateur Shawn Cirkiel (of parkside and olive & june fame), is one of Austin’s best bets for classic Neapolitan pizza and authentic Italian antipasti. Tables are hard to come by in this intimate downtown space, but the service and menu are laid-back and approachable. Antipasti selections like baked ricotta and eggplant caponata rival the main attraction: thin crust, wood-fired pizzas, from margherita to the popular fennel sausage. Desserts, like ricotta cheesecake and salted caramel panna cotta, are artful—served in small mason jars—and delicious.
