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.

Fiore Tedesco

For Fiore Tedesco, Italian cuisine transcends mere pasta and red sauce; it's about nuanced flavors, simple yet bold textures, and fresh ingredients meant for sharing. Influenced in his early days by his grandmother followed by stints at Gramercy Tavern in NYC, Roberta's in Brooklyn, and Austin's Franklin BBQ and Bufalina, he co-founded L'Oca d'Oro in 2016, embodying family traditions and hospitality values. Tedesco's culinary prowess has earned numerous accolades, reflecting his commitment to community service, fresh ingredients, and excellence in both fine dining and casual fare.
