    We have been to the Backspace several times over the years, one of our favorite places in Austin. This time, however, will likely be our last and I offer the below feedback in the hopes of improving the experience for others. After being seated and ordering an appetizer, we waited about 25 minutes until noticing that what we ordered, a meat and cheese plate, was sitting on the counter waiting to be brought to our table. Our server, who may have been the only server taking care of the restaurant, was standing right in front of the board cutting pizzas and bringing them out to other tables. After 10 more minutes, the server finally brought the board to us after we had been waiting 35 minutes total. Any request, including drink refills was painstakingly slow and had to be requested twice. The pizzas were excellent and since we ordered four, they were brought out 2 at a time which was great. The food quality was high balanced out by the breathtakingly slow service. It’s one thing for a server to be overloaded but it’s quite another to be actively ignored. For reference, our table was two feet away from the server’s position cutting pizzas. We felt invisible and for $200, that should not have been our experience.

    Love this place. We’ve been several times. The happy hour is great and everyday. The fennel sausage pizza is our favorite and every appetizer we’ve had has always been good.

    The lobster pizza was so delicious. And the atmosphere was dreamy. Remind me of being in a movie where BBF's comes every day after work to share stories. The tables are super close together, like close! We wished for more appetizer options. The most disappointing was on the receipt there was a "wellness charge". I asked what it was for and was told it was for covid safety for the employees, which sounds great in concept, however we feel that is the responsibility of the restaurant to provide "covid safety" to their employees without charging it to the customers. It was a huge turnoff.

    Good pizza. Terrible service. Had a reservation for 7pm and was asked to wait until they clear tables. We were seated at 7:20, waited ten minutes to get our order taken. We ended up taking our order to go because of the wait and poor service.

    Delightful atmosphere, attentive staff and the food was perfect. The intimate, warmly ambience was a nice contrast to when you step out the door to the noise and craziness of 6th Street! Highly recommend, make sure you make reservations or you may not get a table.

    I live in Houston but get to Austin 1-2 times per year. I’ve eaten at Backspace 5-6 times over the years. Excellent pizza with somewhat limited selection of toppings offers but they picked the right ones and the quality of those offerings is top notch. The Cesar and Burrata salads are both fantastic. The Burrata is among the best I’ve ever had anywhere. Small but decent wine list and friendly service. The wood-burning over is right out in the restaurant which is pretty cool. No cocktails - wine and beer only. If you need a pizza fix in downtown Austin - this is your place.

    A very small place with fairly crowded seating. Food was tasty but VERY slow. It was surprising service was slow given the size of the place but maybe there were a lot of take out orders. The pizza was good but the crust was a little too thick for Neopalitan pizza. Worth another try but didn’t blow me away.

    We ordered the pork meatballs and the pizza Bianca. The meatballs were ok - the sauce tasted pretty much like something out of a jar. They were served piping hot out of the oven. The pizza was tasteless and disappointing. The cheese had no flavor at all. The arugula on top was fresh. The crust was very good. Service was good. Oddly, they were out of iced tea and had only one beer available. The atmosphere was seedy and dim. Can’t recommend this place.

    Still one of the best date night spots!! Get an early reservation for the 50% off wine and apps! Because it’s so small, the service is attentive but not intrusive. The food is so delicious! The only issue was that the room seemed pretty warm with lots of portable fans and AC units going so hopefully this is only a temporary issue. Poor staff seemed pretty hot and sweaty, but as a customer it was comfortable.

    Great service, very mediocre margherita pizza. They made the gf crust in house that i was super pumped for, but unfortunately it was just meh. Zero seasoning, barely any cheese and four tiny flakes of basil. Left so much to be desired.

    I was there for my Birthday this past weekend, I’ll give it to Josh he did a good job being that they were very short staffed. I REALLY WISH I WOULD HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THE A/C WAS OUT, I would have canceled my reservation & gone somewhere else. I love this place but it was way way to hot, neither of my guests nor I could enjoy our food.

    No A/C and long wait times for service because they were short staffed so I understand but with the no A/C it was pretty unemployable. Not the staff’s fault though and they were friendly.

    5 stars for EXCELLENT food! 0 stars for establishment. NO air conditioner! it is 105°F today and they do not have a functioning AC. Imagine the wood fired pizza oven going at full speed and eating hot food - pizza and panini and then no central air. Horrible. I feel bad for the staff that have to work in these conditions. Owner, manager fix this! Place temporary fans in restaurant or shut down restaurant until AC fixed in the middle of Texas summer. TOO HOT!
