Not Too Much to Say: Very Good_DvB

This was my first visit but I will certainly add this to my monthly rotation. The food has an authenticity of light flavors and natural ingredients, the dining area is open and well-lit, and the service was appropriately sparse for the setup but friendly and open.

We ordered a fresh salad with grilled chicken. The chicken was moist, nicely grilled and the lettuce in the salad was fresh green with artichoke hearts and pecans.

You order as you go in to the restaurant before you seat yourself.You get a number and a wait staff brings your food, our wait staff name was Ricardo (i think) he was great! I had the roasted chicken (yummy)!!! Also I tried the spinach, which is cooked in olive oil and garlic (yummy too)! I just wish they would... More

This is one of my favorite lunch spots. The food is good, authentic Italian and the service is quick. I don't vary much from my normal menu items: I always get the chopped salad and Chicken Vincent. The garlic roll that comes with the meal will melt in your mouth...mmm. I'm sure one of these days I'll get a pasta... More

This is nothing like almost any other restaurant in town (other than it's siblings in other parts of Houston.) It's a nice alternative to fast food or a burrito.

Stopped for a business lunch with 3 others. The food was delivered quite quickly and was very good and reasonably priced. If you are looking for good food served quickly its worth a visit.

Prices were great for an Italian meal. I do recommend this place. The paste was popping hot and not very crowd. Very mellow place to hang out and talk..

It was a very pleasant experience for me and my guests form China. The environment of the restaurant is bright, neat and clean. The food is tasty and on the right portion. Meat ball panini is my favorite dish, which never failed to satisfy my tommy.

Ate lunch here the other day for the first time. I really enjoyed the quick service and varied menu. All of our party had something different, and it was all good. We really enjoyed the meal.

This is one restaurant you have to eat at. It comes from the family of restaurants like Ninos & Grappino. The food was outstanding. I ate there for lunch and the portions are dinner size. Service was excellent and it was not too noisy to conduct business. I'll definitely be back. Portions
