This is a nice small Italian restaurant in Old Town Katy. They might have 10 tables inside and a couple tables outside. The parking lot is very limited with around 6 spots or so. We ordered a medium pepperoni pizza and our friends ordered their specialty supreme pizza. The pepperoni pizza was good. The supreme pizza was excellent. I enjoyed... More

Let me say I have been here probably 3 or 4 times, each time hoping they will have improved their service. The pizza is so good, as long as you have 1 1/2 hrs to spend waiting from start to finish. I so want this place to stay in business, but it is embarrassing to take out of town guests... More

We were visiting family in Katy and 5th Street was highly recommended so we decided to give it a try. The restaurant is in downtown Katy, an area we have never explored before. The parking lot is small so we parked across the street in a church parking lot. The restaurant itself has about 9 tables, and we were lucky... More

I was searching for a good pizza joint and came across Joe's. My boyfriend and I went and found a different restaurant at that location. We were already there so what the heck. The inside was much nicer than the pictures I had seen for Joe's. We shared a salad and had a large pizza with everything. It was amazing.... More

We really like the place when it was Joe 5 Star but the new young owners have really made great improvements not only to the entrees but to the place itself. We have been there 3 times under the new 5 Street Italian Kitchen banner and are impressed each time we go. It's now sit down service with a nice... More

5th Street Italian Kitchen opened in Q3 2015. It occupies the same premises as Joe's 5 Star Pizzeria but is under new management. It has been completely remodeled in a bistro style. There is now table service. There is a great menu including soups, pastas and pizzas. Some of the previous owners menu items remain and the new owner has... More

The ingredients, the layering and seasoning make these pizzas a true treat. The freshly risen dough yeast flavor, and a layer of oil that floats to the top, not sinks to the bottom makes them reminiscent of New York's by the slice pizza.

Been looking for a good pizza place for a year now since we moved to Katy. Former owner Achille left his mark here. Fresh ingredients, not greasy, thin crust...delicious!

This place not only has the best pizza in Katy, the owner's are also wonderful and you will want to support them. We've eaten there over 20+ times and it's amazing every time. Go support this family owned business and enjoy the best pizza in Katy!

This is a café / bistro style Italian in Old Katy. It is family owned and operated (by veterans). This is casual dining with limited table service. The staff were very friendly. There is a great choice of pasta and pizza. We tried both and they were very good. The style and taste is closer to authentic Italian than American-Italian.... More
