We craft all salumi onsite using wild boar from the Hapgood Ranch in Clay County, Texas. These wild pigs are trapped, fed out and tamed and taken to a USDA inspected butcher where they are processed for Sorellina. We cure, marinate and age all salumi on site in a very traditional Italian manner. We spend a great deal of time bringing such a lost skill to your plate, we hope you enjoy as much as we do.


PIZZA

 

All our pizza dough is made at Sorellina using a combination of freshly milled re wheat from Central Texas, rye and Italian pizza flour from Napoli, Italy. The dough, using a sourdough mother we borrowed from a friend in NYC, is 10 years old. Every morning we mix, cut and shape the dough allowing it to rest and ferment for three days before we top it and bake it in our custom wood fired oven. The listed ingredients are the very best we can get our hands on, and we have done as little as possible to them to make a very simple, delicious pizza.

our story

OUR Story

At its simplest level, Pizzeria Sorellina, is a pizza restaurant designed to offer casual, inviting, family-driven food for the communities surrounding Lake Travis.

A balance to its sister restaurant, Apis Restaurant and Apiary, Sorellina is boisterous, with open spaces and large communal tables. It is a restaurant for new and old friends, large groups and small families, and the solo patron just looking for a cold beer and hot pizza.

On the surface we specialize in traditional Italian pizza, customizable and baked to order, as well as simple salads and small plates.

On a deeper level we focus on milling our own grains, shaping and stretching our own cheeses, cultivating and processing, curing and aging all of our own wild boar salumi onsite.  

Our pizza is a made with sourdough crust utilizing a 10-year old starter culture and a mixture of house milled red wheat, rye, and traditional Italian pizza flours. The dough has no added yeast and takes 2-3 days to develop into the pizza it becomes when it meets our custom wood fired oven. 

our team

Taylor Hall | Adam Brick | Jose Luis Sapien

After a successful opening of Apis and all the press that followed, the Apis team began pursing new restaurant concepts in Austin, only to realize the best space available to grow was right under their eyes at Apis’s campus in Spicewood. Taylor Hall’s lifelong dream of Apis and the mentality of its hive, so to speak, is taking the next step with Sorellina.

When we set out, Apis was to be an elegant but approachable dining experience in our community, but with our first-rate staff and the feedback we got from our diners and press, it quickly became clear that Apis was a special place. With Sorellina Pizzeria, we want to offer something complementary to the special occasion restaurant that Apis has become and create a very casual space with an open a honest look at food. Food that we really like to eat and share with our families. That’s why we chose pizza.”

Rounding out the core team are general manager Jose Luis Sapien and Adam Brick. Jose has a background in fine dining operations and cocktail artistry. Adam runs daily kitchen operations at Apis as well as our sourdough and salumi programs.
