I have been there twice for lunch. Both the times I really enjoyed. So far I had pesto sandwich and Cesar salad. Tasty and fresh...will go again.

Very nice dining experience-I won't go into tons of details, but I must comment on the fact that the food was prompt and tasty. The staff was very helpful and we would go back again. Thanks for a great evening!

After reading the mixed reviews we went here anyway, much to our dismay it was as terrible as some of the reviewers suggested. We were seated immediately because we had a reservation, but the tables were so crammed in that I felt a little claustrophobic. When the rest of our party arrived we placed our cocktail orders and appetizers. It took almost 40 minutes for those to come out and there was no bread with our olive oil flight. The waitress while a little scattered was very apologetic and told us the olive oil appetizer would be on the house. We placed our entree order and a bottle of wine for the table.....two hours later our food arrived. Our waitress had checked in with us several times during the wait and again was very apologetic admitting that there was no excuse for this kind of service. At this point several of the tables around us had already eaten and were leaving. We were baffled and had it not been my friends birthday I am sure we would have left in a storm, but it's not often we are able to spend time with friends and the noise level had finally dropped to hear what they were saying. When our food finally arrived it was accompanied by the manager who said that all the food for the evening would be on the house for the terrible experience. Wow....ok so maybe this is just a off night? No. My husband's risotto was undercooked and still crunchy. My friends steak was not seasoned and the fried outside was mushy and it was covered in what could only be described as tomato sauce over mashed potatoes. The rest of the table was fairly satisfied - or could it be that we had now been there almost 3 hours and had cocktails and wine? I will not go back here and I will be sure to tell all of my friends the same. Unfortunately the food just wasn't good enough to put up with the service.

I have heard about Sagra before as being a great place , so I decided to go there with some friends last Saturday. I was really impressed with how friendly everybody was. The halibut was really good and the cat cake was also really good. My friend all enjoyed their meals and we are going again next week. A good discovery
easier to get a reervation

We tried Sagra at the suggestion of a friend. It was fantastic! It is lovely inside, the staff is attentive, and the food is wonderfully prepared - all at a very reasonable price. The calamari appetizer,antipasti salad, and tiramisu dishes were excellent. I ordered the chicken san daniel - it was the best!

Back for the 3rd time in 2 years. Brought a couple of friends from Houston and my wife. We had a vegan, a meat eater, a fish eater, and pork eater. All were well taken care of. The staff were extremely attentive and especially to the vegan orders. The sparkling rose wine was the cap to one of the best meals we've have had in Austrin in a long time. Will probably returnagain.

I'm amazed by the 4.5 stars. We had one of the worst meals of our lives here last night. If we hadn't been someone's guest and it hadn't been xmas eve, I think all seven of us would have sent our dinners back. The maccheroni al forno was elbows swimming in tepid cream covered with dry crumbs, the calamari was fish gum rings, the butternut squash lasagna was like bad pumpkin pie, the linguini con vongola I didn't get a bite of, but my sister said she could barely eat it. My husband and I split the seven seas special. The sauce and pasta were good, the clams were good but tiny, the salmon at the center, though, was nearly fish jerky. Just truly awful food.

Like I said, we didn't want our hostess to feel bad on Christmas Eve so we said nothing, so I'm posting here hoping somebody at the restaurant will see a complaint.

My husband and I are from Houston and we often dine at Sagra when we come into Austin. It's our favorite place. We love the food, the service and the atmosphere. Last week we were heading to San Antonio, when the mood for Sagra struck. We called ahead and made a detour. As usual we were seated immediately by a lovely, attentive waiter. From our table the street was very visible and our daughter suddenly remarked that she thought she saw a "famous" person come into the restaurant. She did indeed. A very well-known woman and an equally well-known man were also dining at Sagra that afternoon and they were seated right next to us. What made the afternoon special for us was that in spite of the high profile table next to us, our waiter (and indeed the entire staff) treated our family like we were their best customers.
A delicious, memorable meal served by lovely people.

My husband and I dined at Sagra on Monday night. I have to say that I really had high hopes for this place. First, the location is perfect for us and the atmosphere of the restaurant is very nice. It got a little loud toward the end of our meal but that's to be expected in a small place and it didn't bother us a bit. Our waiter (sorry I didn't get his name) was excellent. He recommended a good white wine for me and red for my husband. I really liked that he offered us a taste prior to our making a decision on the wine. I also liked that the other waiter working at the time and our waiter basically worked together. If the other waiter saw that a plate needed clearing at our table, he cleared it. Nice teamwork.

We ordered the appetizer of the day, Crab Brouschetta. It was a pretty bland crab spread on bread that was too hard. I noticed another customer trying to cut her Brouschetta with a knife and was unable to do so. There was no choice but to pick it up and eat it (which is what I did anyway).

We decided to try their pizzas since they came with a lot of positive reviews. I ordered the Prosciutto Arugula and my husband ordered the Tartufo. My pizza would have been okay but the center of the crust was soggy. There was no way to actually pick up a piece and eat it because the toppings would fall off the soggy part. I usually love prosciutto and arugula together but it somehow doesn't work with pizza sauce. My husband's pizza was interesting in that it had a top crust but he said the flavors again just didn't work together. I tasted it and really thought that the truffle oil didn't belong in that pizza.

Anyway, we didn't complain to our waiter cause we just didn't feel like ending our dinner on that note. Also, we had absolutely no complaints about the waiter or the restaurant itself. Unfortunately, we just didn't enjoy the food.

My fiance and I ate there for the first time the other night and we had to go back the very next night. The staff was friendly and very polite. The Arugala Salad is to die for, I think its the truffle vinagrette that sends my taste buds to heavan. I strongly reccomend this restaurant and their Pizza's are awesome, we had the Quatro Formagio.

What a great restaurant! We were recommended to this restaurant recently and were not disappointed! The food is absolutely amazing. My husband had an excellent boar dish in ragu sauce and I had the most delicious snapper. Try the tiramisu, it is the best I have ever had. The decor is cozy and great for any occaison. The service is excellent and very attentive. If you like wine, they have an unbeatable list. The food was so good we still talk about it and plan to go back very soon!

I realize ?best brunch ever? is quite a bold statement to make, but months after I have visited Austins, Sagra I am still salivating just to think of the experience. I can?t wait for an excuse to go back and visit again. The fact that it?s so affordable only adds to it?s charm. Sagra serves a brunch with plates running from $9-$12. I honestly don?t know how they make money, because the mimosas are only a $1.

We have had two very enjoyable evening meals at Italian themed Sagra. The one thing that comes to mind first is great service. This is unusual for our area. We talked to our server the on the second visit and she told us that in addition to extensive training, the employees must pass a large test before they are allowed out on the floor. Even on a Friday night, with the place full to capacity , the service never missed a beat. This is rare even in big cities.

My husband was a Chef so I can appreciate the difficulty that goes into keeping a place clean and maintaining a quality product.
When first going to Sagra i was impressed with the quality and cleanliness Very good quality. The dining room is simple. You can order beer, wine or a cocktail with your meal if you eat in. It is a very homey atmosphere designed to allow the food to be the diamond in the rough..and there are 8 outside tables with umbrellas.
I have eaten there many times (>10) and all the food I have eaten has been very good. Quickly prepared, served hot. Crispy is crispy, juicy is juicy, fresh is fresh. I appreciate the simple nature of the restaurant. It is not elegant, not very casual, excellent quality food. Very CLEAN On a busy night a few tables can sit 10 minutes). The bathrooms are wonderful with clean, new 'no-touch' bathroom amenities.
I was impressed for the simple reasons i go there...excellently prepared quality food...or order fresh food to take home...The food is absolutely comparable with 4 star. If you're going for 4star atmosphere then skip it; but I prefer quality food over atmosphere anytime. And at Sagra...relaxed in shorts, jeans or dress. It all fits there.

How often have you been to this restaurant? A few times

How long have you wait for a table? 5-15 min.

Noise level: Normal conversation

Quality of food: Excellent

Quality of service: Good

Comments: Contemporary, intimate dining room with a nice bar. Food is interesting -- even the lasagna has a fresh take on what you'd normally expect. Everything I've tried so far has been worth the extra price. In the 6 months I've lived in the area, I've already been here three times. I haven't yet found an Italian restaurant in the Austin area that surpasses this one.

The ambience is wonderful, the service is great and the food is excellent. We will go back in a heartbeat. It is so nice to have this quality of restaurant in Austin!

The portions are very big. We thoroughly enjoyed everything, although the minestrone is a bit thicker than is classic and had no legumes. The salad dressing and all the sauces were excellent and rich; The boar shanks were so tender they melted in your mouth and the pork chop was thick and juicy with a fabulous marsala sauce.

With a bottle of wine and tip (no dessert or coffee) we spent $75, but could have ordered much less and left full.

We were going to a game and decided to try this place. The food was really deliciuos and served in a profesional timely fashion. We were a group of 8, so things could have gone wrong, but everything was really great. All of our appetizers were great, all came on time and were served to the right person without tossing the plates around. Our server was very attentive. We had some great salads, one my friend had was with prociutto, served in a big bowl, very nice presentation. .... It was amazing!!! We all were happy about the appetizers and than the main courses blew us away. I had increadible pasta, tossed with sea food and linguini, different, but delicious. Couple of people had a steak, fish, trout that they raved about. Well to top it all off, we had triramisu to die for.... We had a wonderful time. They got us out just in time for the game without rushing us out. Really amazing experience, especially with a large party. Highly recomended.

This Italian restaurant is a favorite of mine and my husband's. We recommend this place to our friends, and bring people to eat there if they want to go for Italian when in Austin The food is outstanding- large portions at a terrific price. However, there are too many tables jammed into a small area, so it is quite noisy. Sitting outside is a little better, although not very intimate.

After 12 years and 3 kids my wife and I are trying to add more "us time" to our marriage. We We had a 6pm seating but got there and 5:45 and were sat right away. We had a very romantic table on the patio next to the. We are not big wine drinkers but both had a glass, nothing expensive, to help set the mood. We both had tortelini soup, and split 2 appetizers. It was very tasty. I had chicken over arugala with thinly sliced proscuitto. It was mouth watering. We both had the chocolate souffle with vanilla ice cream and it was incredible. The portions were big enough to fill you without being too big you have to take a doggy bag. Well worth the trip if you need a nice romantic night out without the kids it is perfect and not too expensive unless you want big time wine which is there if want it. If you do go and take the kids the pizza at the next table looked very good as well.

the service was not bad, however, and especially for the price, the food was not that good. the Frutti de Mare was bland, the calimari was way over breaded and the cheese plate was sparse, and that's being kind. the one thing i couldn't get over was the seating, the chairs were so close i got a butt across the back of my headm everytime someone was seated. and as the waitstaff walked by they kicked my chair legs 3 or 4 times. there are so many restaurants to choose from in austin, this place does little to warrant your attention

We were back in Austin for our annual trip, just arrived Saturday night. We settled in at our hotel and then began the deliberation process of where to eat as we were both famished. The light bulb went off, and we remembered the place we'd tried the previous year that we'd really enjoyed. The problem was, we couldn't remember the name. However, we did have a general idea of where it was located. So trekked out to conquer the streets in search of grub. We got lucky and found it on the first try, back over on 17th. We entered to the incredible scent of a wood-burning oven, and asked if there were any seats available as we didn't have a reservation. Initially our hostess looked chagrined, but then made room for us next to a cute couple who were obviously on a first date ("So, what to do you like to do in your spare time? Any hobbies or skeletons in the closet that I should know about?" nervous twitter). I recalled the Montepulciano by the glass from the previous year and ordered that to start. I was drawn immediately to the pasta Bolognese as that is one of my favorites, until I saw that Saltimbocca was a special for the evening. My chicken was melt-in-your-mouth amazing; I could have eaten it every day for the next week. My beau ordered the salmon on special and that, too, was amazing - rich and buttery and perfectly cooked. Sated, we left but not before I grabbed a business card to ensure that we never forgot the name of our lovely restaurant again! We ended up back at Sagra the following Thursday, this time having booked a reservation through reservation genie in advance. We enjoyed this meal just as much as the previous one, and if we lived in Austin I am sure we'd visit at least once a week. Ah well, we can dream of next year....

We enjoyed this meal just as much as the previous one, and if we lived in Austin I am sure we'd visit at least once a week. Ah well, we can dream of next year....

Pros: great food service ambiance

Cons: parking

.

A bit out of the way, but worth it if you find yourself in that part of town. I am not part of the young and hip, but I like going to Sagra. The atmosphere is nice (white table cloths, candles, flowers) and it is not too noisy. if the weather is good the outdoor area is to die for. And I love the food. The truffle oil pizza alone is worth the trip. Not like any other pizza I have ever had, it is round and has cheese but other wise has little in common with pizza It is light and delicate and amazing. The other dishes on the menu are all imaginative and each one comes out perfect. I love tirimasu, but the tirimasu at Sagra is a whole other story. the expected tastes in a light and airy dish. The service is always friendly and attentive but never in the way. A terrific place to relax and eat wonderful food.

In brief: They lost our reservation, the food was awful, the wine pairing were worse, we felt like we were being herded out like cattle even though the restaurant was not full, the waitstaff had no knowledge of what they were serving even though the menu was pre fixe, the restaurant was so crowded that I was repeatedly bumped by people trying to get by, and we had to order pizza when we got home because we ate so little of the food, and the cost was $150 for two people.

In more detail: We went on Valentine's Day, and made a reservation. We were called seven times to confirm, and each time told them we were coming. We even gave them a credit card to hold the reservation, but they lost the reservation. Fortunately, they were not busy, although they looked at us as thought we were lying.

We were asked if we wanted a pre-dinner cocktail, and then the cocktail arrived at the same time as our first course with wine pairing, with no apology.

The first course was great (beef carpaccio), but the second course was bad: the chicken was dry and the risotto on the fish dish was gummy. For dessert, the mousse was dense and left a bad aftertaste, and the zabaglione was ok, but only compared to everything else. The wine pairings were universally mismatched and we didn't finish a single half-glass. No one ever asked how anything was, as they were too busy serving our courses as fast as possible. Which was weird, as the restaurant was not full when we left, and no one was waiting for a table.

I'm never coming back.

I brought a date here, after reading a citysearch review and loved it. Not only did they meet my expectations, but Sagra went above and beyond. We started with a cheese plate that had a local herb goat cheese, a really creamy tallegio cheese, and gorgonzola cheese. It was served on a bamboo cutting board with fresh fruit, walnuts and crackers. The cheese plate was a great appetizer and really affordable ($9) it also allowed for my date to try some cheeses she had never before tried. Then we got a large Arugula salad that was more than plenty for both of us. They used an all organic arugula topped with a l truffle oil dressing with walnuts, and cheese, yummy! Our server was Ryan he was more than helpful with wine pairing for our dinner. We ordered a Barolo for the unheard of price $45. I ordered the Wild boar Osso Buco and my date ordered a pasta dish called Fruit of the Sea. We asked for extra plates and shared both dishes. The seafood was really fresh and the Boar tasted like I was in Italy. From my experience I would reccommend Sagra for a date night or if you are a foodie and enjoy local ingredients. Ask for Ryan, he is really attentive and knowledgeable.

We went expecting amazing food, but the brunch items were just ok. It wasn't bad, but we were slightly disappointed with the food after reading rave reviews. It's a small cozy house, so the noise level is easily escalated when occupied by a few groups. The tables are also pretty close to one another doesn't help. The steak hash was closer to beef stew with eggs on top and served on a plate. The portions are pretty big, so definitely not a light brunch. That being said, we would go back to try other things on the menu. Maybe happy hour pizza?

So your wife's hair catches fire during dinner by touching an open votive candle on the empty table behind us ? Unbelievably no one from Sagra took note as the entire staff was in the bar watching a football game !

Screams from an adjacent table brought a waiter more concerned about the smell of burnt hair than my wife's safety. A follow up letter to the ownership has been ignored for weeks.

Sagra has decent food in a nice environment marred by lousy service and a general lack of interest. Menus that appear to be styled after Denny's are awful.

Too many good restaurants in town to put up with this cavalier attitude about their customers well being ! Go to La Traviata for top quality italian food and first rate service !

I had a late happy hour/dinner with my work team at Sagra earlier this week. They are very close to downtown Austin and had some great happy hour drink and food specials. The pizzas were only $6 and you could easily split one for two people. We had a four cheese pizza with goat cheese that was delicious. I'm not a big fan of goat cheese but I really liked this pizza. They also had a good selection of martinis that were discounted. I think we tried them all!

The main dining area is very nice - white table cloths - but still very intimate and inviting. It would be a great romantic dining spot. I heard Sagra has an exceptional brunch so I can't wait to try them out on Sunday!

Two of us went for Sunday brunch, which, to our surprise, was not crowded at all, so word might not have gotten out just yet: this is one of the best brunches in Austin. Fresh sourdough bread and delicious home-made blueberry muffins with honey butter were brought to us right away. I ordered the steak hash, comprising marinated chunks of tender hanger steak, sauteed new potatoes and pancetta, topped with two farm eggs over-easy and a drizzle of pesto sauce. The portion was huge, but at no expense of flavor. My partner ordered the polenta with herbed fontina and white truffle oil, topped with eggs over easy and crispy cuts of pancetta on the side. I had a few bites, and it was delicious as it sounds. All this with 75-cent mimosas and bellinis, too. Everything tasted fresh and is reasonably priced, and Sagra, if only a bit concealed by the campus-adjacent locale, in my opinion, outshines both Asti and Enoteca on Congress. (My only gripe is the somewhat loud electronic music that was being played throughout our meal.) We can't wait to go back, as well as sample their half-price pizzas during happy hour every day.

I visited Sagra last fall and was disappointed by the service. There were still several kinks that needed to be worked out. Last weekend my husband and I decided to give Sagra another try, and we are really glad we did. The atmosphere, the service, and the food, were all excellent! Both the scallops and rib eye were perfect.

Now that the weather is getting cooler, we look forward to having drinks and eating out on the patio. It is a beautiful setting and will be the perfect spot on a cool evening.

If you haven't been to Sagra lately, I suggest you give them a try.

I don?t usually post reviews after I eat at a restaurant for the first time, but I was in such a good mood after brunch that I had to go home and let everyone in on my new favorite restaurant. The food was amazing. Not only did it taste delicious, but the server told me that they only use highest quality ingredients from local merchants. All the food is handled and made in-house, from the bread to the sausage and the ice cream. The setting of the restaurant was very comfortable, I was instantly taken in. If you are the kind of person who enjoys fresh and inventive foods, Sagra is for you. I am looking forward to going back and trying some new dishes.

I really liked this place and would recommend it but make sure to go with pizza. I didn't try the entrees but I thought the apps were small and overpiced and although the salad was good it hardly came with any dressing. Overall great spot and good service. Awesome pizza too so I think it is a go!

We are first-time diners - we just walked in by chance, and what a great find. This place has a warm, friendly atmosphere and a great staff. The bartender was cheerful and all the staff seemed to want to make us feel at home. We had a truely Milanese dinner, the pounded and breaded Pork Chop was tender and tasty, and the Boar Osso Bucco was just out of this world. Just like in Milan!! This is not one of those "Italian American" places but the real thing. Great food, ambiance and staff - We will be back!!

have been dining at Sagra since they opened and can honestly say that I recommend eating there for any occasion whether it be a romantic occasion, a business dinner, a family get together or a night out with your friends. The staff will automatically tune in to the type of experience you want and will make you and your guests feel like true VIPs (the owners have got to be doing something right because they have the most friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff I have ever seen in a restaurant). The food is a true experience in Italian cuisine unlike any other I have seen in Texas. You will never go wrong in choosing Sagra.

You will no doubt impress your friends by bringing them to sagra. The location idowntown is always lots of fun, and inside the restaurant is very cozy. Prices are extremely reasonable. considering how amazing the food is, i have easily paid double or triple what i have paid at sagra and gotten not nearly as good food. i recommend the pasta dishes, esp the rigatoni with some sort of meat ragout and the tortellini with pesto. desserts are also wonderful. get the nutela gelato.. perfect

Charlie needs to lighten up and to stop being so rude and condescending himself. Wow- talk about calling the kettle black. What a nice man!
I go to Sagra at least once a week and have since it opened 6 months ago. Do they sometimes make mistakes? Yes Do I sometimes get a server who is new or might be a little hurried? Yes Things like this happen at any restaurant. However, for the vast majority of the time I have been very pleased. That would explain the repeat business. The owner of the restaurant came from New York and spent everything he had to build this place and he puts his heart and soul into the food and service. I know this because I see him there working his butt off EVERY time I go. After a few times I too went to speak with him- however instead of insulting him and asking for my money back I asked him his name and where he was from. I then let him know how much I appreciated such a great new place and that I would be back often. His name, by the way is Gabriel, a husband and father of 2. He has since that point become a good friend. Charlie's description of him not only is incorrect, it was extremely rude and has no place in a review about FOOD and SERVICE.
I also know of the waitress he was speaking about. She is a German woman and she does come across as rude sometimes although after many meals with her waiting on me, I can assure you that is far from the course. Working in restaurants is tough. That place can get slammed and she gets worked! On top of that English is her second language- it's called 'lost in translation'!
My overall point is, bad things happen at times in restaurants. It cannot be helped. It is the nature of the beast. It's funny that usually people only take the time to write on sites like this when these things occur. However, when you throw in slandering remarks, remember you are messing with people's lives! Think a little next time before putting something out there that can ruin reputations and businesses!

I am a very picky eater, but Italian is my favorite. I thought the bread was awsome and the pizza was tasty. Vegetable lasagna also really good and unique. My friend had the chicken special and enjoyed it so much he's taking a bunch of business associates later in the month.

I found it very quaint and warm. You should try it at lunch. It's not too busy so you feel your taken care of.

This was my first experiance at Sagra and I was very impressed. I was there on a Friday night and it was a full house. Their was five of us in our group and had reservations, greeted and were promptly seated. Our waitress Alex was very attentive and helpful with what to choose off the menu, she really was on top of things. Everything on the menu sounded great, and we all decided to try as much as we could. We ordered a few different appetizers. Everything was very great. The calamari were tasty, the mussels were fresh, and the caprese, and charcuterie were both very good. Although we didn't order any wine, the choices seemed to be endless. For the main dish, we mixed it up as well. The Chicken Parm was perfect, the Brick Pressed Chicken was very moist, and the potatoes with that dish were awesome and the Wild Boar Osso Bucco was extremely delicious. There was no room for anything else but since everything was so good ,dessert seemed like a must. I'm glad we did the Torta was great.
This little restaurant has a lot going for itself. The food great, the service was friendly. All in all a wonderful experiance.

I'm so sorry to write this review because I was looking forward to finding a new gem. The evening started out with a drink in the little cozy bar section. Unfortunately, the 2 bartenders were miserable from the start. My boyfriend and I felt like we had ruined their evening by sitting at the bar. He shook a pathetic martini (granted, I'm sure the wine would have been a more apopos choice) and we sat in total discomfort because of their attitudes. We thankfully were transferred to our table in the outdoor patio and our waitress was lovely. We felt like the evening took a turn for the better until the food started coming out. The salads were a sorry sight; barely any toppings and hardly any dressing. Next came my boyfriend's veal osso bucco which was highly praised in a local magazine. It was so bland and lacking character. My pizza was just so-so.

Unfortunately we were quite disappointed. I realize that a lot of work went into the rennovations and the restaurant looks lovely; however, when there is no love or passion in the kitchen, it really shows.

My friend from out of town and I went for a relaxing tuesday dinner. We both liked the location and setting. The wine list was marginal for an italian restaurant. The appetizer list was ok. We ordered the mozarella caprese, and thought it was average. The mozarella was a little dry and the basil seemed liked it had been chopped and stored in a fridge until someone ordered it.
After that, the main course, I had the wild boar shanks with a risoto. The wild boar tasted like bland pot-roast and the risoto was pretty unimpressive as well. He had some sort of mushroom manicoti that looked more like enchiladas and was pretty small. The cheescake desert was extremely dry and almost stale tasting. I would think twice about trying this place again. I was hoping it would be a decent enough place for a first date, but the food might just ruin the atmosphere.

He had some sort of mushroom manicoti that looked more like enchiladas and was pretty small. The cheescake desert was extremely dry and almost stale tasting. I would think twice about trying this place again. I was hoping it would be a decent enough place for a first date, but the food might just ruin the atmosphere.

This is a great place to go for dinner or drinks on the patio! We went there on a chilly night but the heaters made it quite comfortable. Try it out!

I ate at Sagra just once, and I love the location, they did a good job in remodeling what Lory had with Mars before.
I'm italian, born and race in Italy and I was extited to try their pizza, but I have to say that, even if the portion is just fine and they clame they use fresh ingredients, you can't say their pizza is an original italian pizza at all.
The real pizza was born in Napoli and if you have ever been there you will know the difference.

I have been to Sagra twice over the past few weeks and it was great both times. The restaurant looks like an Italian farmhouse and makes for a great atmosphere for drinks or dinner. The pizzas are made in a real wood burning oven. Before this place opened, I was afraid Austin would never have any good pizza. It is so refreshing that the pizzas aren't drowned with cheese or toppings and have a nice thin crispy crust. I am glad they are not trying to make their menu Texas friendly (like so many restaurants do) by adding southwestern ingredients to Italian cuisine. All of the food is authentic, simple, and executed flawlessly. The wine list is great and very reasonably priced. The waitstaff was very sweet and attentive both times we were there. I think for the price, the quality of the food and service is great. I would recommend Sagra to everybody and cannot wait to go again.

Pros: Pizza, friendly staff

Cons: I can't think of any

I heard about this restaurant through the grapevine and I was really excited to try it out. It had all the right ingredients to be a spectacular restaurant..unfortunately it was everything but. The place it self is beautiful and very romantic although there are way to many tables and it's quite difficult for the servers to maneuver around the seats just to get to your table. We ate there on a tues night and even though it was pretty busy, the service was slow uncoordinated and frustrating. Their menu is really confusing and not very appeasing. We started with the Calamari which was way OVER cooked, salty and it really had no flavor at all. I proceeded to try the Tricolore salad again wayyy to bitter, nothing good about it at all. And for my entree I ordered what I figured would be the safest thing on the menu, the Marguerite Pizza and I was shocked- that to was not very good.. it had very little cheese on it and it was drenched in pesto sauce!! I really hope that they can work through their problems because it's a beautiful restaurant with soo much potential that I would just hate to see it go to waste..what a disappointment..
