San Gennaro

  • + 9.19 - 9.22
  • + Dolce Special @ Il Brutto
  • + Lunch Special @ La Matta

San Gennaro: an Italian holiday with origins in Naples, a staple gathering of New York’s Little Italy, and most famous as the setting of Don Fannuci’s assassination in The Godfather Part II.

At its core, San Gennaro provides a sense of place for Italian immigrants in the States. And as the Italiani know, when you can’t be home, you eat like home — so Executive Chef Erind Halilaj is bringing his own sense of nostalgia to Austin with celebratory San Gennaro specials at neighboring La Matta and Il Brutto from 9/19 through 9/22.

Grab lunch at La Matta for a classic Italian panini with crispy porchetta and pecorino cheese. Il Brutto will feature a traditional Napoli dessert honoring the origins of San Gennaro, babà al rum, a beignet-like pastry filled with white chocolate chantilly cream and blackberries.

Leave the gun, take the babà al rum.

  • + Every Monday night
  • + 5pm - 7pm

Il Brutto’s Limoncello Club is in session every Monday during happy hour.

Grab a seat at the bar anytime between 5-7p to learn the secrets behind our signature recipe + peel a few lemons to contribute to our latest batch while you enjoy half off your choice of cocktail, wine or beer.
