The foods was amazingly excellent. The service was so weird. At first the waiter was very attenttive. We ordered dinner and a bottle of wine. He served the wine and told us about the specials. When we did not order the specials, but rather something else off the menu, he seemed perturbed. From that moment on the service went downhill.... More

We were downtown for the bridal extravaganza and we were hungry after a lot of walking all day. Decided Italian would be good. We decided to try Perbacco and I am so glad that we did! The food was fresh, hot and delicious. The bread and especially the oil to dip the bread in was delicious. The owner and manager... More

In the middle of the Houston Theatre District and perfect for pre-show dinners. The service was exceptional. Pasta was prefect and very authentic. Small, not posh but very elegant. One of the best Italian restaurants we've tried in the US. We'll be back.

We had heard some nice comments so decided to try Perbacco before the POPS Concert. Small neighborhood restaurant with outstanding service and food. Friendly, neighborly atmosphere. My wife's lasagna was tasty, my lamb chops were great. Prices were very reasonable. I'm glad that I made reservations since they were booked solid through the evening. We'll be back.

The best Italian food the city has to offer. We have been going here for years and are never disappointed. It's so small, most ignore it but I guarantee it is worth the trip. Love the tortellini. Crowded before the theatre. We wait until after the crowds and relax.

Wonderful Italian food, charming host and close to the theaters. The portions are not huge but very satisfying. Not a huge menu but there should be something for everyone. They were also open to making to order. Casual, very high ceilinged room with large pictures of the owners family on the walls.

I recently stumbled across this new (relatively, I think) Italian restaurant, and while I am not a huge fan of heavy Italian except on special occasions, this place does Italian lunch fare just right! For starters, they are efficient which is especially important since it's in a small location which tends to be crowded for lunch. They mean business when... More

We picked the restaurant for a pre theatre dinner and it was so close to the Hobby Centre it was perfect! We took an uber into Houston from Seabrook and then walked to the theatre. Its a simple restaurant specialising in authentic Italian trattoria style food in an urban setting! They only open certain nights just for the theatre otherwise... More

Perbacco looked to me from the outside like a swank restaurant (I don't get out much?) When we were greeted inside and told that our shorts and sneakers were ok attire despite the other patrons wearing dress clothes, I felt at home. I felt even more at home when the woman who took our orders said that they could make... More
