Jason Dady's second venture takes a simpler spin on the Mediterranean foods of The Lodge. Try anything from the wood oven, from specialty pizzas to the grilled asparagus topped with egg. A list of 55 wines for $55 holds bargains if you've a mind to live large.
Cafe Milano features delicious, inexpensive Italian cuisine.
After serving home-cooked Italian food at their Nacadoches location for 30 years, Gay Capparelli closed the doors when the building was condemned. But the very next day, Capparelli's on Broadway opened and is still run by Gay's father. She is now the sole owner of Capparelli's on Main (which opened May 1, 2001), and she thought it appropriate to ask some of her most faith-ful patrons to add their art to the new establishment. Gay Capparelli's gracious attitude and the restaurant's fine food encourage return visits. The highly affordable lunch specials are perfect not only for the penny pincher but also the late luncher. - Xelena Gonzalez
If you're up for a jaunt to Schertz, Carmine's menu is a proposed courtship of fine and classic Italian with more casual Texas Hill Country. The menu's working on the balance, but many dishes are worthy of attention regardless - the glorious gnocchi, the seared scallops, and the Chicken Carmine's among them.
A Cento & Fanti location appears in malls as a traditional Italian market-style get-up with its hand painted colorful tiles, open brick oven and seemingly endless cases of delicacies. The food is made using high quality ingredients.

Don't let the name fool you; Dolores del Rio is not another faceless Mexican restaurant that lines our tourist-ridden River Walk. Instead, it serves San Antonio's second favorite cuisine, Italian, and does it the right way, with a few extras: unforgettable entertainment, hospitable service, and an interesting dining atmosphere. While Dolores del Rio requires reservations on weekend nights, its class isn't obvious from the outside. Since there were no diners seated at the lovely patio area, we nearly passed it up on our first visit. Dolores is secluded, tucked in a dark room up a narrow flight of stairs, with no view of the river. The low ceilings, brick walls, and compressed seating give the restaurant a speakeasy feel, as if diners were hidden under a large stairwell or a secret room. - Xelena Gonzalez
The finest pie in town (and authentically, officially Neapolitan), with a crisp and savory crust topped with fresh, milky mozzarella melting into the sweet and tart sauce. Excellent appetizers, too. Current readers named Dough Best Local Pizza ’08 and ’09.
Florio's offers up good, honest, New York street-corner pizza (by way of New Jersey). The ambience is authentic, including the office set-up on a dining-room table just inside the door. Get there by 11:30 to beat the lunchtime lines. -- Burgin Streetman, 01/08
The picturesque setting of Fralo’s Art of Pizza may well be your first clue that you’re in for an out of the ordinary dining experience, from the hidden aspect reminiscent of a fabled Italian village under the trees. Independent owners Frank & Lori Hakspiel have created the place to see and be seen; you might even spot a famous face. Adopted into the hearts of their community for family celebrations, discussing business or quiet romance. Enjoy live music on the patio and bring along your favorite bottle of wine to pair with a host of eye-opening, taste bud-stirring toppings that put the Art in Pizza
One of San Antonio's favorite pizza jaunts.
Grissini has undergone more upheaval recently than an eruption of Vesuvio. First, it eliminated lunch at the original Fredericksburg address. Then, under the name San Remo, it took over the star-crossed location at West Avenue and Lockhill-Selma that has been home to - let us count the ways - about five restaurants. Although San Remo opened to critical acclaim, it soon cratered - due in part, I'm told by real estate sources, to the inability to unload the Fredericksburg Road lease. And now Grissini is back where it all started - apparently none the worse for wear. In fact, if anything, Grissini is better than ever. The subtly decorated dining room (mirrors abound, and there is a minimum of fake-sculpture tomfoolery) seems to glow with heightened allure, and if Scaloppina San Remo remains as a cautionary reminder of the failed operation, the rest of the menu seems familiar - except that I don't remember things being quite as good as they were on a recent visit. Maybe it was the lilting Italian being spoken at a couple of tables, but I don't think so. The opening cozze al vino bianco arrived arrayed on a plate, not submerged in liquid, and elicited unison nods of approval. Both mussels and herbal wine sauce fulfilled their promise; we only wished for more mopping sauce. - Ron Bechtol
Joe's ambience falls short of the food, but the textbook New York-style crust makes up for it. Try the Florentine, and don't skip the cheesy garlic bread. -- Haylley Johnson (06/09)

Foreign film buffs might know Chile’s Sebastián Silva from his Sundance Film Festival hits The Maid (which took home two World Cinema Jury Prizes in 2009) and this year’s Crystal Fairy (starring indie fave Michael Cera opposite Gaby Hoffmann). True fans, however, will tell you to start at the beginning. Released in 2007, Silva’s Life Kills Me deftly combines the ironic melancholia of The Smiths, the dark comedy of Harold and Maude, and a bizarre film within a film into a morbid sleeper suggesting death might be smarter to embrace than to fear. Shot almost entirely in black and white, the openly gay director, screenwriter, painter, and musician’s cinematic debut screens at SAMA in conjunction with Global Lens 2013, a touring series launched by the Global Film Initiative in 2003.
Regarded as one of the architects of contemporary R&B, 10-time Grammy winner Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds brings heartfelt and impeccable music for grown folks to the Lila Cockrell stage on Friday. After writing and producing hits for Bobby Brown in the late ’80s, Edmonds joined former bandmate Antonio “L.A.” Reid to create LaFace Records, propelling acts like TLC, Toni Braxton, and Usher into the public consciousness. By the end of the ’90s the young producer was responsible for 42 No. 1 R&B hits and 51 Top 10 Pop hits. A gifted performer in his own right, fans can expect plenty of material from his 11 solo albums, including classics like “Whip Appeal” and “For the Cool in You,” which recall an era of R&B when records didn’t necessarily require 16 bars to make it on the radio.
