Ate here twice on a recent trip to the nearby Medical Center area of Houston, at the suggestion of a local. It was superb! They make many pastas in house; the food is generously portioned and delicious. We especially enjoyed the lasagna, walnut and mushroom tortellini, spaghetti with meat sauce and house-made tiramisu. The salads and bread accompanying the meals... More

We have been eating here for more than 20 years. Still as good as ever. My favorite is the walnut and mushroom tortellini. All the pasta dishes are excellent. Comfortable and casual. There is outside seating which is comfortable when the weather is comfortable which is NOT in August or September. Popular and there is often a short wait.

Outstanding Meal at a rare find in the West U part of Houston, TX. Quaint Cafe and Market with outstanding food and nice wine selection. The spaghetti and sausage was cooked to perfection and regularly I do not order eggplant but their eggplant dish was extraordinary. My first visit but not my last by far. Service was perfect!

We were drawn to this establishment by their add claiming homemade pasta. We found their pasta heavy, not light like homemade should be. The fettuccine sauce was very average. The veal ravioli was nondescript. We have to admit the meatballs were pretty good. Our waiter Jack was very nice but oversold the quality of the pasta.

Have eaten here 4 times in the last month. Each time I left satisfied and with leftovers for next day lunch. The Nash pizza is excellent thin crust pizza! Chicken appetizer stuffed with sausage and cheese made me want more. Love the outdoor eating area. Nice find in Rice Village!!
