Austin's Little Italy

Italian-themed food trailer park coming to South First Street

Italian-themed food trailer park coming to South First Street

Call it Austin's version of Little Italy. On July 7, an Italian-themed trailer park will open on South First Street at Elizabeth Street (the home of La Barbecue before its move to the east side).

Regal Ravioli will move from its current location and join Seventh Flag Coffee, which currently sits on the site. "Right now it will be us in July and then August 1 there will be a Neapolitan-style brick oven pizza trailer coming in called 40N," Regal Ravioli's Chuck Stephens tells CultureMap via email. "The Seventh Flag guys are excited to have food out there and we [are] glad there will be some drink options right next door."

Over the past few years, South First Street has witnessed a culinary explosion with the addition of high-end restaurants joining the casual eateries, Mexican restaurants and trailer parks that call the corridor home. "We are really happy to continue being a part of the Bouldin Creek neighborhood and are excited for the prospect of growth this will bring to our business," said Regal Ravioli owner Zach Adams.

The Italian-inspired trailer which specializes in handmade ravioli has been around since 2011. If you can't wait until July 7 to get in on the cheesy goodness, Regal Ravioli's mobile trailer will be taking part in this month's Trailer Food Tuesdays.
