We've endured enough cold weather in Austin! We are told it's going to be warmer (let's wait and see) but maybe wet this week-end! Wet is good because we all need rain! How does venturing out this week-end to a "community" type restaurant sound? If you like Italian you'll love this neighborhood Italian restaurant near Mueller Lake Park designed with family in mind. Give it a try, might be just the spot you need to wind down!
L'Oca d'Oro https://www.locadoroaustin.com
L'Oca d'Oro (which translates to The Golden Goose) celebrates community and the simple connections that make a great neighborhood restaurant. They offer gracious hospitality and recreated Italian culinary traditions in a familiar, warm and welcoming setting. Their menu features their interpretations of dishes from Sicily to The Veneto, crafted entirely from ingredients that are sourced within a short distance of the restaurant.
They make their pastas are made from freshly milled grains; most of the their bread, cheese, vinegars and liqueurs are also created in-house. And, wine pairing is available to ensure a totally enjoyable meal. To Chef Fiore Tedesco, Italian cuisine is more than pasta and red sauce; it's subtle flavors with simple preparations and bold textures that are lovingly prepared and meant to be shared.
A sampling of what you'll find on their menu: On the Entrée Menu there's Gnocchi alla Sagrantino made with pancetta, marinara and fried onion...Dry Aged Yonder Way Pork Chop with sweet potato butter, winter greens and horseradish vinaigrette...Farro Pappardelle with shrimp bolognese, guanciala and bottarga. On the Brunch Menu there's Brioche French Toast with buttered almonds, apple butter & fior di latte gelato...Biscuit and Gravy with cotechino sausage and mustard greens and The Full Italian with sunny-side up eggs, baked beans, prosciutto cotto, slab bacon, roasted tomato, mushroom conserva, greens & toast. And, of course we can't forget the Dessert Menu with Semolina Torta with pistachio gelato and pistachio brittle...Tiramisu with white sonoran sponge, Plantation OFTD rum and house mascarpone ... Nocino Affogato with Fior di Latte gelato and espresso; or you could keep it simple and delicious with housemade sorbetto & gelato.
