Amazing Italian Food!

The outside may scream hole-in-the-wall, but those walls have seen the rich and famous for decades.

The food is consistently great! The wait staff is friendly. Both my daughters ages 8 & 11 love eating here. I have never seen a kids menu but they have always made smaller portions for the kids.

I shouldn't praise this fine restaurant because it may get crowded but I'm going to anyway. The decor is outdated but the service and food is above and beyond. The bruschetta was the best I've ever had, hands down. The meals arrived hot and steamy. I had the snapper with shrimp and crab in a red sauce upon a bed... More

This place may not look like much more than a small strip center restaurant but looks are deceiving. Made from scratch cooking. Extensive menu and if you don't see what you are craving ask and they will prepare. The daily specials are superb as well. Excellent selection of wines. The owners and their wait staff will make you feel like... More

Went here for lunch with 3 locals (I'm the out of town NY based co-worker). Let me start by saying NY probably has some of the best Italian food outside Italy, bar none. This little out of the way place with its non descript front surprised the heck out of me. The owners were to die for - typical Italian... More

Had a business dinner here as was recommended as being a very good Italian restaurant by a Houston resident friend of our party. While the food and service was OK, none of our party of 7 were particularly 'wowed'.
