Tour Italian Juliet’s Many Rooms on Barton Springs

Explore Austin’s latest Italian spot.

Nadia Chaudhury is the editor of Eater Austin covering food and pop culture, as well as a photographer, writer, and frequent panel moderator and podcast guest.

The newest Italian option in Austin, Juliet, opens its doors today, July 1, on Barton Springs. Helmed by former Asti chef Jacob Weaver, the restaurant features a modern approach to Italian cuisine, which includes stuffed meatballs, olive oil tastings, wood-fired pizza, and an array of housemade pastas.

Eater photographer Robert J. Lerma explored the restaurant’s 1960s modern Italian location, including the five rooms and the "Italy-meets-Texas" patio. There’s a spacious main bar that’s filled with natural light, cozy tiny lounge, darkly romantic dining room, and two side rooms for one-on-one dinners and louder parties. The courtyard, with lots of greenery, will have a separate bar with food menu.

The building used to be the home of Umami Mia and former Italian restaurant Romeo. Hours are from 5-10 p.m. on Sunday through Thursday, and 5-11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Happy hour is 3-7 p.m. daily.
