red ash austin


Red Ash Italia is by far…the best of everything.  Chef John Carver has perfected the cuisine and his team has ensured the best service, ambiance and experience for every single diner.  Located in the Colorado Tower, right in the hub of downtown Austin, this Austin restaurant holds a niche of “wood fired” Italian with some of the best meat dishes in Austin ranging from Crudo to Osso Buco and 50 day dry aged Porterhouse.  The starter appetizer  of Tribeza Bakery bread will knock your socks off from the beginning, and the Crudo and any of homemade pasta are sure winners.

TIP: Dine-In and Pickup Available for Dinner Daily. Reservations via OpenTable.
