I was staying in downtown Austin on business and found Backspace on Yelp. I expected it to be good, but I was blown away by the bianca pizza with arugula. It's one of my favorite combinations and this was the best version I've ever had,...More

I visited this restaurant this evening for dinner. The pizza tasted delicious and the restaurant is beautiful inside. However I felt let down by the staff who lost points with rudeness, seeming like they wanted us in and out as quick as possible. Good Customer...More

The food was great, so was the service. We tried a variety of appetizers and pizzas and enjoyed them all. They have some interesting combinations on the pizzas. The quality of ingredients was excellent. Lunch was very affordable. Worth a trip.

I have been here twice now - once on business at lunch and now dinner with my husband. Both times have been superb! I love the Bianca Pizze, the arugula is so fresh and percorino romano that it's tossed in, just makes it pop. This...More

From what we had read we expected more. We ordered pizza, though there were some other interesting sounding options. I liked the continuous bench around the room, but pretty hard for extended comfort. Our server was quite nice. The pizza, though good, was not compelling...More

This is a small place, but it hits far above its size. The vegan pizza was fantastic, and the staff could not have been more friendly or accommodating.

Absolutely awesome place. Small, has a great vibe and feels intimate as a result. Both casual and more high end, really good mix. I ate the pepperoni pizza which was mouthwateringly good. I loved how the garlic was sliced properly into the pizza instead of...More

Came down for SXSW and ran into this place thanks to Trip Advisor. Very good pizza, one of a few places you can really taste the quality of their ingredients. From the outside it looks closed, but they are open limited hours. It is expensive....More
