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.

We really enjoyed our meal at Da Marco's - the food was amazing, beautifully presented and not served as gigantic Texas sized portions!! It was elegant and as good as fine dining could be in Houston but was still relaxed it was a 'date night' for us and there is a romantic feel in the ambiance Its hard to find... More

Da Marco is extravagant and delicious. After eating here once for a business dinner, I promptly took my wife here the next week. Favorites include whatever is listed as a special, the risotto with black truffle, the egg raviolo with black truffle, and the uni pasta.

Da Marco is a nice and cozy restaurant. It has an ample parking space outside. The service is average. The food is very good and I think that it is the only true Italian restaurant in Houston!

It just seems you could not go wrong with anything on this menu. The high prices are what you expect in Houston for an upscale restaurant, but they have no shortage of guests. Our waiter, Anthony, gets high marks for his knowledge and recommendations on both food and wine pairing. The chef deserves credit for his/her presentation skills as well... More
