After driving past the regular chain restaurants we stumbled upon this place. It was a bit crowded but that added to the local feel and charm. The veal parmesan and lasagna was very good. The portions were generous and the prices were reasonable. I would definitely recommend.

This place is that little Italian Restaurant you want to try, the food is superb, the wine offerings perfect, the staff is friendly and helpful. It's perfect for date night as well as a get-together with family and/or friends. They offer a great (weekday) lunch plate as well. Desserts are wonderful, but we usually are too full to get one...

We enjoyed the ambiance of dining outdoors under the pagoda with fans overhead. The food was very good but very pricy for such small portions. The entree comes only with bread which is served prior to ordering. The Italian Cream cake is excellent but very pricy at $7-$7.50 a slice. Since the location is in the Rice Village I suppose...

My husband and I went to D'Amico's today for lunch. It was our first visit. The service was terrible. We ordered a siciliano panini and a mediterranean salad. The panini had tomato, mozzarella and procuitto on it. When the sandwich came out, it did have grill marks on it but the interior was cold. The cheese was not even warm... More

We had lunch there today and couldn't have been happier, if you like good food, good service and great prices you cant pass up on this. The parking garage makes it simple.

Pretty good dinner menu and very affordable. I had the crawfish ravioli, it was very well cooked and delicious. I will highly recommend this place in you're in the rice village area. Nice bars just around the restaurant.

Italian Market Cafe with "Al Capone" flair. I talked in Italian with the staff but nobody speaks italian just spanish! Hence I hold back my expectations. But i did not get disappointed. The home made pasta were really delicious. The wine by the glass was perfect only the coffee was more american style. A charming and vibrant place in the... More

Fun restaurant and Italian shop in the Rice Village Area. This is a great restaurant for traditional Italian food. The cheese ravioli is delicious and filling. A variety of breads are constantly refilled throughout your meal. The servers are very attentive. This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area.
