Old school Italian

We were a little concerned that Da Marco was not rated in the top 100 Houston restaurants and that it offered Italian wines only. They also do not serve liquor, so do not expect to have a cocktail before dinner. All said, we did enjoy the bread, salads, service, veal chops and the atmosphere. If... read more

Da Marco generally is consistently very good, but we were disappointed on our last visit. The chalkboard menu promoted an heirloom tomato, cheese and proseco salad. Disaster. Tomato was tasteless, and it came with overpowering cheese and what appeared to be sliced ham. Took two bites. Main course was good. Would have sent the salad back but we were guests.

The ambiance, the service, the food and the wines combine to make Da Marco the best restaurant in town. We have patronized this restaurant many times and we have never been disappointed. On our most recent visit, we started with a delightful glass of Franciacorta, followed by grilled octopus and spaghetti with sea urchin. This latter dish is sensational! You... More

We had a business dinner planned for this place. They did NOT tell us when reserving they didn't serve mixed drinks or beer other than fancy Italian brands. We all looked across the table at each other and proceeded to leave the place and find somewhere else more accommodating. Absurd that a place that charges these prices doesn't serve drinks.... More

This is a very special Italian restaurant, offering authentic Italian cooking with beautifully fresh ingredients. It's hard not to eat too much as you'll want to try so many things. Definitely have the prosciutto and the pasta (or share the pasta) and leave room for a main course. Note that you need to dress up a bit, if you try... More

I went there following recommendations on internet. I came in and it was quite nice. I had a drink , nothing special, waiting my wife... She was never able to get in because she had snickers and not casual shoes ! People were in jeans, some in T-shirts, and nothing was never written about this strange rule ! Even after... More

Da Marco remains our very favorite restaurant in Houston. Always consistent, we love the food, the service and the ambiance. The extensive Italian wine list represents all wine regions of Italy, although it clearly favors Tuscany, the Piemonte and the Veneto. The angel hair past with fresh white truffle is to die for. The grilled octopus is an all-time favorite.... More

Well, celebrated a birthday here with out of town visitor and the food actually was really fresh and good, I had the known truffles special (can be expensive compared to other restaurants!) and it was good-strong unique taste with the pasta made fresh at the table which was enjoyable. The duck was a little wild gamey taste but still good... More

An interesting menu with a strong Italian slant that uses very high quality ingredients and skilled preparation. The restaurant has a fair priced wine selection that contains offerings not offered everywhere. The service was friendly but inconsistent. It varied between water glasses being filled without a request to having to request the pepper grinder and more bread. The wine glasses... More

I recently celebrated a birthday with a few friends. Her husband called and asked for a birthday cake and we all got to order what we wanted. It was a surprise and four of us showed up early and the waiter asked us if we would like a glass of champagne. We all said yes and he brought us our... More
