L’Oca d’Oro is Austin’s Italian-inspired neighborhood restaurant that celebrates family, community, & sustainability.

All of our dishes are prepared with sustainable, locally grown produce and meats—a reflection of a farm-to-table philosophy that extends to our handmade pasta, cheese, salumi, bread, vinegars and liqueurs.
We care for our team members as family, and pay ONE FAIR WAGE in the belief that lovingly prepared food and authentic hospitality are best nurtured by meeting the basic needs of our entire staff.
Hospitality is included in the form of a 20% pre-tax service charge.
