I can't recall the name of the evening's featured dish, but I'll call it Bellissima." A mild arribiatta sauce with shrimp, scallops and lobster with a wine pairing that was perfect. Great conversation with nearby patrons of the symphony topped it off. The one question...More

We went before the symphony and loved it. The food was excellent Italian, and the prices were very reasonable. The service was friendly and impeccable too. I highly recommend this restaurant, but don’t try to go without a reservation. It’s a very small restaurant and...More

A small resto within Hstn Theatre District, where many theatre-goers dine before the show. Make reservation after 19.30 so you can eat in a relax atmosphere with less-busy staff and receive full-attention (not that they wouldn't during busy hour). The chef is from southern Italy....More

We walked in fairly early so they were able to accommodate us without a reservation, but this is not a large place so I'd call ahead next time. Food and service were superb, price reasonable. I got a dish with a lot of seafood and...More

With a six burner range and tight quarters the chef/owner has been turning out hand-crafted meals since 1991. The menu changes daily but is grounded in the traditions of Capri. At the end of day if nothing appeals ( it should ) you can get...More

My group decided on Perbacco for lunch. The space is modern in soft tonal blues and white, with big light filled windows overlooking the downtown Houston streets. My starter was a garden salad with a very very light vinaigrette kissed with chunks of feta. Delicious!...More

The only reason I didn't give this place 5 stars is because of the lack of parking. The night we went it was pouring down rain and we spent 15 minutes driving around in circles before we ended up just parking in the garage for...More
