We went in for lunch before the Super Bowl and really enjoyed the food and the service. We sat at the bar and enjoyed a delicious Rose along with the wild mushroom and walnut tortellini. Highly recommend!

I had the spaghetti and meatballs. It was amazing! The food tasted similar to an authentic restaurant I tried in NYC. Next time I'm in Houston I'll be going back!

It was the best Italian food I've ever had. We ate lunch here but it was so good that we ordered dinner also. Great pizza, great pastas and great service.

My wife and I had Lasagna and spaghetti and sausage. The lasagna was so-so but the spaghetti and Italian sausage would have been great if they had not drowned it in a powerful tomato sauce. Unless you like tomato sauce overpowering your spaghetti, ask them to ease up on it when you order. Prices are very reasonable and free covered... More

I live in the Spring/Tomball/Magnolia part of the city. Recently I was down in the Rice Village part of town twice - Nutcracker Market and Museum of Fine Arts. Both times the food was absolutely delicious. In fact, the lasagna was so good, I ordered it the second time too. I couldn't believe it would be as good as the... More

I don't understand the high ratings of this restaurant. I ordered the capellini with eggplant and ricotta. There was virtually no sauce. It was very dry. Barely any eggplant. Very blah taste. The artichoke appetizer was somewhat blah as well - virtually no sauce. No bread was served. On a good note the almond fig gelato was good.

Had friends from out of town and hungry. We decided on another place but packed. So we meandered over to d'amicos. We enjoyed this place. I ordered the veal saltibucca, different but good, stuffed lightly beaded and great marsala sauce. My wife and her friend split a pizza and pasta both were big and good. Another ordered another pizza and... More

Went to the museum & D'Amico's after. I like to try dishes that are a little different. So I went with the ROLLED STUFFED EGGPLANT. Very good choice if you like eggplant with spinach & cheese. Delicious. Everyone at our table wished that they had ordered my lunch!

Wow! I'd never guess I'd travel to TX for the best Italian food I've ever had. The staff, the food, the drinks...it's all Italian bliss for my family. Can't wait to come back our next round. I'll be looking forward to another visit for 6 months!
