I've visited this excellent restaurant a number of times over the past 3 years and have never been disappointed. Having lived in Sicily and grown up in the North East I am very particular when it comes to Italian food. The service was good and attentive but overly so. Our well prepared meals arrived without a long wait and were delicious. We were not rushed to leave when we were done which is always nice. Cost for 2 with wine and an appetizer was just under $50. Definitely will return and highly recommended. Molto bene. Complimenti al cuoco.

I come here very often when visiting family in Houston, and it remains one of my favorite restaurants in the city. The prices are very reasonable, the atmosphere relaxed and comfortable, the service attentive, and the food tasty and generously portioned. Whenever I go (I've only ever been for dinner, not lunch), it is always crowded and sometimes a bit boisterous, but the atmosphere still manages to be low-key.

The restaurant is a small, charming place with consistently well-prepared food and a friendly wait staff. It's not a place for special occasions, but it's perfect for a relaxing evening dining out.

A delightful little café, with authentic Italian food, you would almost think you were in Italy! The servers were friendly and helpful, the food delicious. A place I will definitely go back to, the next time I'm in Houston.
