If you want classic Italian in Houston, this is where you go. Beautiful ingredients and amazing sauces, fine execution. Very good seasonal rotation. Very difficult to make a menu choice because there are so many of them that appeal - and they're all good! Excellent, deep wine list. Attentive, useful service. Easy to get to, no parking or traffic difficulties. One of our local standards.

This was a delightful meal. I have to avoid certain ingredients, and our waiter was patient and knowledgeable and the entire wait staff attentive. The dinner was absolutely delicious -- the salads fresh, the chicken dishes savory and juicy, the veggies tender and the sorbetto a balance of tart and sweet. Also, the atmosphere is pleasant. The lighting is dim but not dark, and the music audible but not too loud to hold a quiet conversation. I do wish people would dress appropriately and not pick their teeth at the table, but that has nothing to do with the staff at Damian's, who prepared and served a wonderful meal.

The food is good, but the atmosphere and service is even better. We ate here around 8:30PM on a Friday night. Although there is no stated dress code, I felt severely underdressed wearing jeans. Our waiter was appropriately attentive. The food was wonderful. All, in all, a great place for a nice date.

Decent food but really nothing to write home about. This restaurant is in an older building in midtown with scarce parking. The service was good but the food just average...
