Yo paesanos!

Maybe I'll open up an Italian ristorante serving all of my mothers family recipes...then again, running a restaurant sounds like a major pain in the *ss

It doesn't suprise me that there isn't a big Italian population in Austin...the huge wave of immigration was during the late 19th to the early part of the 20th century...when Austin was a teeny town out West.

Default Italian American Association

There is an Italian American Assocation here in Austin. Check out the website for events. I just joined and I'm 34 and looking for another networking and cultural club to get involved in. The web address is [url=http://www.austinitalians.org]Italian Cultural Association of Greater Austin[/url].

That's exactly what my experience has been here. I clicked on this thread because it had never occurred to me, in 20 years of Austin living, that there might be such a thing as an Austin Italian culture. There are festivals here, for example, honoring just about every other imaginable cultural group, but the words Italian and Texas don't seem to fit well in the same paragraph.
