This is one of my favorite places in Houston, good wine, great food and an atmosphere conducive to relaxation and conversation – reminiscent of dinner at home with friends (only better because someone else is doing the dishes!) We went specifically for the lobster which...More

There is a reason why Arcodoro is being in Houston for so many years. Service is good, the food is consistently tatsy. The only minor negative, the inside decor needs an update.

Lovely Italian Place. Great whole fish on a bed of salt. Also a great Fettuccini Pomodoro. I am definitely going again to try the pizza at night

Wanted to meet up with an old business friend and he suggested this lovely Italian/ Sardinian restaurant for lunch. The food was very good. It seems popular with celebrities. At the next table were George and Barbara Bush. At another table there was an actress.
