Tony and Luigi’s

Tony and Luigi’s Restaurante

For a delightful culinary experience, Tony and Luigi’s Italian Mediterranean Restaurante in Georgetown, Texas, is a great choice.  Tony and Luigi’s opened in 2008 and features traditional classic favorites and original new dishes.

We needed a nice restaurant for a birthday dinner, and this was a great choice! The service was friendly and fast…and the food= divine.  The homemade rolls come out piping hot, and of course, you can’t eat just one.  No way!

Impossible to Eat Just One!

Our dinner fare included the following:

  • Chicken Parmesan
  • Spinach Salad
  • Cesar Salad
  • Wine.

It was absolutely delicious–no doggie bag necessary.🐕

Chicken Parmesan

Moscato for the win!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The server brought out the dessert cart, but we were waaaaay to full (Did I mention the rolls?).  Fun to look!

Tony and Luigi’s A Frank Sinatra Tribute entertains Thursdays from 6:00-9:00 PM (reservations recommended). The website notes Dine-in, Curbside, and Delivery options.  Be sure to call or check the website for possible changes: http://tonyandluigistx.com

If there are any negatives, it might be that the acoustics are not great, so it might be a little loud…a booth is best.

I would highly recommend Tony and Luigi’s. We’ve been going there for years, and it never disappoints.

 

2020 Market Scratch Kitchen

When you need a great, airy, slightly quirky brunch or lunch place, 2020 Market Scratch Kitchen is here for you! This open, bright restaurant has a farm style feel, and a menu that will keep you coming back for more, just so you can try everything!

 

Even if your appetite is small, there’s a large number of options! We swung by for a quick bite, and even the appetizers are worthy of meal status.

   

There are even great options for non meat eaters, too!

Their food is locally sourced, from farmer’s markets, to Gulf coast fishing boats. So you can feel good about eating their extremely delicious fare. They also have quite a lovely selection of wine, because sometimes brunch just calls for a chilled Sauv Blanc, right? And since they offer brunch (on weekends), lunch, and dinner, there are plenty of opportunities to explore.

 

Located in The Summit at Rivery Park in Georgetown, 2020 Market Scratch Kitchen is sure to become your local favorite, as it has mine.

 

 

 

Milano Trattoria Georgetown

   

Elegant Italian dining with a casual vibe. That’s what you’ll find at Milano Trattoria in Georgetown. It’s a vibrant atmosphere with a hint of sophistication with non of the pretention. And the food…oh the food!

    

The dishes taste so fresh and hearty, and look exquisite! Even down to the fresh baked rolls, you’re likely to exhaust all five senses through your visit.

And the dessert menu takes a lovely meal to a whole new level! It was pretty hard to decide between the tiramisu or the cheesecake. Tiramisu ultimately won, and I regret nothing.

Milano is a long time favorite of mine. I love to visit any time of day, but especially on those casual date nights. It’s familiar, welcoming, and just so delicious!

So if you’re in Wolf Ranch, and find yourself hungry and craving Italian food, do yourself a huge favor and stop in. It’ll probably become a favorite for you, as well! Oh, and don’t forget to try their incredible espresso!

Milano Trattoria is located at 1015 W University Ave in Wolf Ranch, with a second location in Round Rock coming soon!

 

 

Nancy’s Sky Garden

Few things are more satisfying to the hardcore bruncher’s soul than a sublime new dining option. Add a breathtaking outdoor dining area, and well….that’s just a little bit of heaven.

 

Nancy’s Sky Garden’s new location in Georgetown is just that, with spectacular food and tea to boot! The options are healthy, organic, and offer choices for both vegans and carnivores.

 

If you order hot tea (and I highly recommend this), it’s brought in a charming teapot with minimalist cups to better linger over and enjoy with friends. We requested the Chocolate Mint hot tea, and it was delicious! Balanced, not bitter…the mark of an excellent brew!

 

 

 

The carrot soup was warm and creamy, with just the right amount of flavor blending with the organic flavor of the soup. And it was the perfect size serving for a light brunch! The warm vegetables with noodles seasoned with delightful Asian flair would satisfy even the pickiest eater.

 

And the outdoor dining space, enclosed with old world style stone, was positively beautiful! It makes one feel as if dining al fresco at an old Italian estate, or a very luxe Napa Valley spa cafe.

 

   

The staff is very friendly, and welcomed us so warmly that we really felt like honored guests. And the interior is so light and breezy that you’re sure to leave worries at the door and truly enjoy this zen experience.

 

If you haven’t been to their new location, make plans to check it out! You’ll be so glad you did!

Setting Down Roots

You know when you were little, and you would be shuttled by car to Grandma’s house? And you would pass through these tiny little towns on all those quiet, windy roads? Did you have that one diner in one of those small towns you always stopped in for a bite and a few precious minutes out of the car?

 

If so, I bet you remember it with a certain fondness. You may not remember the food, or the service, but that it was fun, rustic, the floors always creaked, and it felt…right. It meant you were partly to your destination. It revived you a bit. And maybe you do remember the food, and it was amazing!

 

Roots Bistro is the kind of small town quirky joint you remember fondly years later and speak of with misty eyed nostalgia. This town favorite has stood watch over the square for a while. Part pizza joint, part live music venue, this is the post baseball/soccer game destination as well as an evening craft beer hangout.

It’s very laid back. You seat yourself, order at the bar, and you may wait a little longer. But when they bring you that crispy pizza, or artisan sandwich, it’s all been worth it.

In cooler weather, and nicer summer evenings, enjoy the outdoor patio!

 

Roots Bistro is a really lovely place to spend some time catching up and enjoying food prepared fresh and with care.

Roots is located at 118 W 8th St #101, Georgetown, TX

And if you are looking to set down some roots here yourself, call me! I would love to help you find just the right place!

600 Degrees Pizza

Arguably one of the coolest things about living in a big small town like Georgetown is the fun local restaurants that you can find in one.

600 Degrees Pizzeria is just one of those places. Casual dining, family friendly, unique pizza combos. Very popular with the locals.

Simple menu, tons of choices.
Packed on a weekend mid afternoon.

 

Expect a long wait, especially during rush times (which is almost always), and a very lively, colorful atmosphere.

Good time to catch up and enjoy craft beer.

As the dog statue says, the patio is dog friendly. So if you want to treat your dog to a mega slice, this is the place.

Yes, this is ONE slice. Yowza!

But it’s pretty good pizza (vegetarian options!), and the staff will definitely take good care of you.

600 Degrees Pizzeria is located at 124 East 8th Street
Georgetown, TX.
