It's going to be another rainy weekend so plan to get out and think Italian food one night! I've got just the place for you to try.....Remember the movie "The Good, The Bad & The Ugly"? Well, this restaurant in East Austin is a nod to that iconic western. Great food, atmosphere and ambiance...what more could you ask for?
IL BRUTTO https://www.ilbruttoaustin.com/
IL Brutto serves authentic Italian cuisine on E. 6th St. located in East Austin. Executive Chef, Erind Halilaj, has a deep passion for great food and the actual experience of dining. Her goal is to bring genuine Italian cuisine to Austin. By that she wants you to know this is what you would eat if you were in Italy presented in exactly the same way. IL Brutto's menu is equivalent to the food of Italy as a whole. They are respectful of tradition and that means using fresh ingredients and classic techniques.
