Everything you expect from a romantic fine dining no snob experience! Vince and Nicolas are always friendly and approachable. Bonus point to Vince- always will recommend quality wine and good value. White truffles are my wife's favorite. I always order from the daily specials and must have desert- the best panacotta! If you are looking for great value, consistently great... More

My husband treated me to dinner here for our 37th wedding anniversary, our first-ever experience at Da Marco. From the valet and security guard, to the ambiance, food and wait service, it was an impeccable evening. We shared the shaved celery salad, ricotta raviolo with black truffle, and whole roasted branzino for two. Fresh, perfectly prepared from start to finish,... More

I've been to Italy a few times and am always on the lookout for a good italian restaurant that can come close to feeling like authentic italian food. I don't know what it is about italian food in Italy, but nothing I've experienced in the states usually comes close. Da Marco actually does, which is saying something! Plus all of... More

This is my favorite Houston's restaurant! The truffle risotto is creamy with this spectacular parmesan cheese...out of this world and always excellent!! Those kind you wish it will never end; a real experience! Branzino is also a must, made to perfection, you've never imagined fish could taste this delicious and tenderly full of flavor. Perfect for a romantic date, place... More

I have eaten here 4 times in the past 5 years, usually for special occasions. This visit was for a birthday celebration on a Sat night. I was surprised that they dont sell alchohol here, i did not remember that. Our food was good, but the service was exceptionally poor. Waiter didnt know things and made no attempt to find... More

I had not been to Da Marco for over 10 years. Our recent meal can only be described as impeccable - the food, the wine and the service were all impeccable. If you closed your eyes while eating you would have thought you were in a top tier restaurant in Italy as the food had the taste and texture that... More

A solid Italian that we have frequented two or three times a year. The Branzino is excellent and truffled risotto or pasta are also very good. A bit on the rush them in / rush them out side to try to turn the tables 3 times a night. The main issue I have is their wine list. It's all Italian... More

We came here with a group of friends and had an awesome time. It's by far the best Italian I've had in Houston. They had Jamon Iberico as an appetizer special. It was amazing, 36 month aged ham thinly sliced. For the second course I had wild boar papardelle which was also amazing, and I had the prime strip tagliata... More

Best Italian in Houston. The night's special menu was nice. The atmosphere feels like that of an older house, not trendy.
