Since opening in 2010, the backspace has been rated some of the best pizza in the US. Just off 6th street and tucked in the space behind chef Shawn Cirkiel’s iconic Parkside – the backspace is a rustic, 30-seat intimate space and Austin’s first Neapolitan pizzeria.
Our pizzas are made with Italian-imported flour and tomatoes to reflect Neapolitan-style standards and then cooked in our brick oven, the centerpiece of the dining room. Our antipasti are the perfect start to a meal; infusing a copious amount of seasonal ingredients and flavors into tapas-sized portions. And we feature an all-Italian beverage list, including classic Peroni on tap.
