“very good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

The inside isn't that fancy for the prices. Just good ol Italian food. Local owners who will come to your table and chat. Great wine selection. Food was very good. I have had way better bread pudding, but they were proud of it.

“Excellent Italian restaruant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Everything is good at Damian's in Houston. If you are planning on going to a Play or Symphony or even the Opera, eat at Damian's first then use their free shuttle to the downtown event.

“Another top notch restaurant in Midtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Again, a restaurant week pick. We do eat here other times throughout the year and are never disappointed. It was just exceptionally nice to enjoy a lovely meal at $35 per person. The portion size is far from skimpy, the service is wonderful, and pasta is just fabulous!
