Reservations are recommended, but we always reserve space for walk-ins. Take a seat on the patio under the beautiful oak tree or in an intimate table indoors. Our patio offers heaters, tents, or fans to provide a pleasant dining experience year-round! We will try to honor all online requests, but feel free to call for any special requests. During peak hours, parties more than 15 minutes late may not be able to be seated. If your desired reservation time is unavailable, please call and we may be able to accommodate!

For your convenience, our family-styled large party menu is served to all parties of 8 or more guests, seated 6:30pm or after, and priced at $39 per person. All items on the large party menu are family-styled and shareable among the table. The large party menu is formatted for your convenience and takes the guesswork out of portions and quantities; our staff will take care of that for you!

Olive & June opened in 2012, and is named after the grandmothers of chef Shawn Cirkiel and his wife. Olive & June raised the bar for Italian cuisine in Austin with an emphasis on handmade pasta made in house, daily. The 3-story building is enveloped by a 200-year-old oak tree with 4 different dining areas inside and out. Olive & June also has the largest and most diverse selection of Italian wine, Amari, and Grappa in Austin. Being a part of the Parkside Projects company, Olive & June is well known for its formal yet friendly service. Guests can look forward to new and exciting ways our chefs are celebrating the cuisine and culture of Southern Italy with their friends, family and loved ones.

Olive & June is a part of the Parkside Projects group, which also includes: Parkside, The Backspace, Olive & June, and 800 Congress. Go to Parkside Projects for more about who we are.

 

Shawn Cirkiel’s creativity and innovation in the kitchen have made him one of Austin’s most coveted chefs and restaurateurs. Cirkiel opened Parkside in 2008—the city’s first gastro pub—to much fanfare. The accolades continue on for this sophisticated spot, which also houses Cirkiel’s second restaurant, The Backspace on downtown Sixth Street. Shawn then brought an updated version of family-style Southern Italian dining to Central Austin with Olive & June, and most recently, Bullfight, an authentic Spanish restaurant featuring a variety of small, shareable plates off Airport Blvd. While different in concept, each of Cirkiel’s restaurants share a passion for top-level service and promotion of sustainable cooking. Cirkiel’s passion for local and seasonal food extends beyond the scope of his restaurants and has become a driving force behind his notable community engagement.

Cirkiel’s devotion to sustainable cooking and the community is evident by his involvement in many projects, including an initiative at Austin’s Highland Park Elementary, where he has helped develop healthy-eating, exercise, and gardening programs. Cirkiel is also a founding chef of the Sustainable Food Center’s Farmers Market in downtown and a past board member and secretary for the Sixth Street Austin Association, which has been fundamental in raising funds to restore the legendary district. And while the chef maintains a high profile around town and in the media—he’s been noted in numerous publications, including Southern Living, Food Arts, Cooks Illustrated, Bon Appetit and the Los Angeles Times—Cirkiel doesn’t stay out of the kitchen for long.

Chef Justin Rupp has led the Olive & June kitchen as Executive Chef since 2012, creating fresh, seasonal and authentic dishes for the Southern Italian-style neighborhood eatery.

Chef Rupp spent five years helping Chef Cirkiel hone parkside into the success it is today, assisted in opening Chef Cirkiel’s charming Neapolitan pizzeria, the backspace, and has been integral in developing the rustic and comforting Italian dishes that Olive & June is renowned for. As part of his dedication to keeping the restaurant’s offerings fresh, seasonal and unique, Chef Rupp creates a new menu each week for Olive & June’s wildly successful Sunday night family dinners, incorporating traditional Italian-style fish dishes, fresh and robust vegetables and house-made pastas paired with locally raised proteins and ingredients.
