Great homey place – I took my boss here for an appreciation dinner last night. He was so impressed with this place. The atmosphere is very nice. The food is outstanding. You have to try the hearty bean soup. Steve our waiter was very helpful with the wine selection to go with what we ordered. The staff is always right there with what you need. I will definately be back.
Best Italian food in Houston Texas – The food and service are wonderful!! It is like stepping into a elegant family owned Italian restaurant on Rome. Small cozy atmosphere with traditional Italian cooking. This is the place to find fabulous food and a fine dinning experience. The food is well priced and portions are TEXAS size. They also have a great bar and wonderful bartender. I great houston find!!!!!!
Inconsistant Service – First time here we sat outdoors. It was romantic and the food was tasty. We only had time for appetizers and vowed to come back later for a full meal. They seemed to be properly staffed and service was good. This was on a weekday.
Second time we came here was on a Saturday night. We didn't make reservations. We were seated pretty quickly but never saw our waiter. No drink order. No dinner. We waited 10 minutes. So we left - hungry and a bit angry. Beware on weekends.
Great food and service - at a good price! – I have been several times and have always very much enjoyed the food. The service is great - even with a demanding party!
Over the top in custeromer service! – We arrived on a Saturday night, a party of three without reservations. We did not think the restaurant would be able to seat us as it was busy and 10p. They graciously gave us a wonderful table, superb service and the food was fabulous. We were celebrating my birthday and the waiter presented a complimentary cheescake and caffe latte. He could not have been more accomodating. We intended to go to a very expensive Steakhouse which had to close due to plumbing problems! Just goes to show you every cloud has a silver lining. We will be regulars here. I think the negative review I read about the couple driving around, then having a bad experience should try driving directly to the restaurant. Driving in the village is enough to dampen anyones mood. This really was a great spot.
Best Italian Food in Houston – We love this restaurant. This has become our favorite restaurant. The food is simply outstanding. The prices are excellent for such high quality food. All the pasta dishes are terrific and the eggplant appetizer is out of this world. But beware this is a very popular place. During the weekend you must have reservations!
3 Strikes you're out! – My wife and I had been driving by for awhile and finally had dinner there Friday night. Oh my, how disappointing, first of all the wine by the glass is below average selection. 3 different dishes we all disappointing, the lumpcrab was not fresh...had a fishy taste, the mushroom ravioli was bland, and so was the osa buco. The service was below average, the waiter was always in a hurry and talked so fast you couldn't understand him, had to ask for refills, anyway, we wont be back, too many outstanding Italian spots in Houston to waste time/money here!
AWESOME! – What a wonderful experience to eat at this European feel restaurant. I will be back again and again!
Editorial Review – Converted house in tony Southampton known for upscale Italian fare and a romantic atmosphere.
