You may be surprised to learn that San Antonio also knows how to make incredible Italian food, as is evident by the restaurants on this list. Sure, they're not as ubiquitous as Mexican restaurants, but you won't be disappointed.
Edera Osteria Enoteca is the newest Italian restaurant in San Antonio and will easily impress your date as well as your palate with their high quality, seasonal ingredients, traditional Italian food influenced by Spanish and Mediterranean flavors. Although upscale, they're extremely affordable and really just impress on every level.
Il Sogno is another upscale restaurant - one that has been around a while and earned a great reputation for their innovative antipasti and entrees. Located at the Pearl, the hustle and bustle vibe in an industrial-chic atmosphere might just be more reminiscent of a real Italian trattoria than anywhere else in town.
For more casual fare that still serves up scratch-made Italian cuisine, visit Fratello's Deli for pasta, pizza and yummy desserts. They even have a mini market so you can make your own at home!
