I found a deal online for Hill Country Pasta House at restaurant.com. You can get a 25 dollar dining certificate for 10 bucks, and at the end of the month they always have coupon codes that reduce it further. I got two certificates for six bucks total. I will inform you when it happens again.
So I heard good things about HCP from the comments, so we decided to check it out. My wife ordered one of the specials, seafood in cajun cream sauce. She loved the dish, it came with a salad and the meal. She liked the portions and the large amount of seafood that came with it. I ordered a pizza and was somewhat disappointed as it was “too cheesy”. It was the Serrano pizza but could not really taste any spice in it. I should have said less cheese. I like the Lakeside pizza’s better. I also liked the ambiance and wait staff, who were helpful in helping my wife pick a wine selection and in general. I would recommend going there to anyone for looking a few notches above Johnny Carino’s and that type of fare. We want to check out Siena next in our Italian restaurant tour.
