The atmosphere and the service is good, however the food leaves a lot to be desired. The food preparation is wildly inconsistent. I have been there 4 times ( and that will be all i think ). One time having pasta so spicy i couldn't eat it, and one time where the pasta for both myself and my wife was... More

This is a quaint low key restaurant only has about 15-20 small tables. Thankfully we got there right before the dinner rush. A line forms fast. It's truly a hidden gem on a pretty busy street. From what I could tell the menu covers sandwiches, pasta, pizza, wine, desserts and coffee. All made in house according to the server. I... More

I went with my daughter and fiancé for a Friday night dinner. We ordered the Nonna pizza(I think that is the name) and Salmon sandwich. It took over 35 minutes and when we asked about the order the employee told us they were waiting on the pizza. Remarkably it appeared 5 minutes later. The pizza was cold and it tasted... More

We eat here regularly, every time we visit family in Houston. Reliably efficient, flavorful, healthy, affordable, and comfortable. Recommended for singles, couples and families.

Another must if you are in the Montrose Area of Houston or nearby. You order at the desk on arrival then seat yourself. We shared a couple of pastas and a large Italian Family Salad which was huge. They only have a few deserts on offer at lunch time but they were OK for our purposes. A happy hour on... More

A coworker recommended Paulie's saying that it is lighter Italian food. We ordered food to-go and when we arrived the line was out the door - always a good sign. We ordered a 1/2 order of Fettuccini Alfredo ($8) with grilled chicken ($5) and a grilled shrimp ($4) Caesar salad ($7). The portions were excellent. The 1/2 order of pasta... More

I got the chicken Picata It has such great flavor, it was delicious. I chose fruit with it instead of pasta. The fruit had a delicious mango sauce on it. I love the ginger lemonade and I mix it with the tea. You have to try the cookies they are scrumptious?

Crowded on Saturdays, but not impossible to get a table. Nice counter staff. Ordered a bowl of mushroom soup and light salad. Both were generous portions. The mushroom soup was hearty and loaded with mushroom bits. I'd order this again. The Gorgonzola dressing was excellent!

I always have a good meal here. This time we tried the simple and tasty spaghetti and meatballs and a panini. Both were great and came out quickly. The parking out back can fill up quickly so its better to come on the early side.

This is a very popular eating place in our neighborhood. It has been around for quite some time. It's great for lunch - serving sandwiches, pasta, salads. It's friendly, happening, and fun to eat here. Good for families. Good for casual business lunches. I believe it's open for diner too, but I haven't been there for that yet.

Thank Mo C
