Citysearch Editorial Review – One of Houston’s very few authentic Sicilian restaurants inhabits a quaint, cozy house sandwiched between the Med Center and a Mister Car Wash. The small (perhaps slightly cramped) space lends itself to intimate dinner dates over the Mediterranean melt-in-your-mouth flavors of their nouvelle cuisine. Attention is paid to atmosphere at this family-owned establishment, as the elderly Tino wanders from room to room strumming classic Spanish songs on his guitar while the wait staff keeps the Chianti flowing and offers a robust “Buon appetito!” as they deliver your dish. Choice entrées include lamp chops with porcini mushrooms, veal Sorrenta with eggplant, ham, and mozzarella, and crab-stuffed pasta shells. For dessert, the moist rum cake is a must.
Great food at reasonable prices – Highly recommended. Attentive service, very relaxing, and the food is excellent. It is our home restaurant away from home (the Florida Keys).

Not Close – The service is fine but the staff can be trained. The food is a typical of an American Italian restaurant with really not much to know about Italian food.
A cozy and romantic dining experience – This is such a small house to convert into a restaurant, but for this location it is perfect - don't drive too fast, you might just miss it! Great wine service and abundant menu.
