Best Italian food in San Antonio???????

  • i

I am looking for any and all recommendations for the best Italian spots in San Antonio. Price is not an issue. Location is not an issue. The region of the Italian cooking is not an issue. I love pretty much any Italian food, from the fanciest dishes to the most simple pizza or pasta. So any kind of Italian recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Several restaurants leap to mind when thinking about Italian food in San Antonio. Favorites include ( in no particular order) Ciao Lavanderia, 226 E. Olmos phone 210-822-3990; Massimo's, 1896 Nacogdoches, 342-8556; Piatti, 255 E. Basse Rd. in the Quarry Market at the base of the smokestacks, 832-0300; Grissini, 8594 Fredericksburg Rd. 615-7270, San Remo,8055 West Ave. 366-0416, LaScala, (Continental, but with mostly an Italian flavor) 2117 NW. Military Hwy. 366-1515; Aldo's 8539 Fredericksburg Rd., 696-ALDO and last but not least, Paesano's, 555 E. Basse Rd. 828-5191. One or any of these should satisfy your Italian needs.


    1. Also check out Aldino's on 1604 and Blanco. They have great spinach raviolies!

      1. little italy at blanco and west avenue on the north side of san antonio has the best italian food in town.
