I love trying new things, and, of course, that includes trying new food and restaurants.
Not too far from where we live, there is a very nice restaurant that opened a couple of years ago now (I think): Apis Restaurant & Apiary. We tried it a couple of times and enjoyed it very much… but this post is not about Apis. Not exactly at least.
More recently, Apis opened a second restaurant, a pizzeria, which was great news because we didn’t have any real one in the area.
Pizzeria Sorellina offers “Italian tradition in the Texas Hill Country,” to quote their website, and it does it very well.
Prices tend to be a little higher than for your regular pizza, but the quality is well worth it. You come in, you order at the counter, wait for your food, and either take it home or enjoy on site.
The first time we went there, I wondered why all their little “Come & Take It” flags on the tables were at the bottom of their mast. Then I read the little sign about how to get the staff to “come and take” your order for additional food. Very funny. And smart.
Our favorite pizza is the maitake mushroom – but they’re not currently serving it. Our second favorite is the n’duja sausage, which contains stracciatella – to the exquisite pleasure of our cats. Pizzas are baked to order with delicious and fresh ingredients and you can really taste the difference. They are also as crusty as can be.
If you find yourself in the Spicewood area, west of Bee Cave, near Lake Travis, I highly recommend that you try it.
