“An outstanding surprise”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Probably the best italian restaurant in the whole houston area. It is very very small so you have to make sure reservation is made. It looks like a real small european restaurant not you typical texan restaurant. The wine is great the entry and ingeneral the ambiance is something that i will look foeward to check out next time in town. Is located in a great neiborhood. Prbabaly not a place to bring your kids as it is very small but a place to come with couples or adults

“Fabulous Overall Experience”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

We have eaten here a couple of times, most recently for our wedding anniversary. There are only about a dozen or so tables so a reservation is recommended. The restaurant is intimate and the staff attentive. Food is always delicious and perfectly presented. The waiter brings the menu board to your table and describes, in great detail, each item. Dont come here if you are in a hurry as they give a true Italian relaxing experience. At the end of our meal they remembered it was our anniversary and presented us with two glasses of champagne in the shape of a heart and an elaborate dessert on a cake stand. It is these touches that make this such a special place to eat.

“The best!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We are long time visitors to this wonderful restaurant. Where there are so many fast food restaurants in Katy, it is nice to have a world class sit-down restaurant like this where you can go and truly enjoy your meal. If you are in a hurry, go to the fast food Italian restaurant next door. If you want a wonderful dining experience over an evening, this is the place to go.

“DaVinci's”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

I have driven 50 minutes to hit this well kept secret 4 times! Please make a reservation, otherwise you may be turned away. You will be so pleased with the food and the service. This is the jewel of Katy. Food and presentation will be worth the wait. Plan on spending awhile in this quaint atmosphere that will make you think you have left the country.

“The best Italian Food of any restaurant I have had. I am from the Vatican.”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

The food is superb. Temperature, presentation and wait staff the best in the world. There is no better combination of factors. The restaurant is small and is overboard with trying to be part of an Italian experience but it is all part of the charm. Remember you are in Texas not Italy. Very noisy when full and the bathroom hallway door swings into the kitchen door. Comical and part of the charm. The only downside I could find was the lack of cream for their coffee and the temperature was cold. In summation, eat there.
