The first time I ate at Birraporetti's, I swore I wouldn't go back. My meal, linguini and white clam sauce, was terrible. When the server asked if we wanted bread, we said, yes-- only to find out we were charged for it in the end. I've never had an almost $50 Italian lunch in this area. Since then, I've had to go back for different events and have found that sometimes the food and service are excellent (usually evenings and bar service is excellent. I still think their prices are too high, especially for being in Friendswood and based on the inconsistency of the quality. I would definitely go back, but am always wondering, "what's it going to be like this time." I will say though, that to go to the bar for a glass of wine and appetizers with friends, is a treat. We had a great server/bartender there one night who was very knowledgable about wines and recommended some great appetizers. He was also very personable and even let us try a few wines to determine what we wanted to order. For their prices, this is the kind of service I'd expect.
My average rating is truly a mix of excellent and poor visits.
