    I enjoyed my three course lunch there. The flavors were well done and the beef filet was very tender and cooked well. I would come back again and recommend to others that would like a quiet but sophisticated place to eat.

    Have been to several of the wine dinners and while all are very good, this was the best. Each course is a work of art and the wines are excellent. The wines are explained to you by qualified folks. The service is geared to your pace.

    One of the best Italian restaurants in Houston. Veal chop was amazingly tender. Pasta was fresh, and sauces superb. Lamb ball appetizer was perfect in terms of size and the truffle sauce was exceptional.

    This place is a GEM! Service is always over the top great and the food is delicious. We enjoy eating here for birthdays or when we just want to treat ourselves and stay close to the house. I had the quail special and it was very flavorful. My husband had the snapper and thoroughly enjoyed it. The wine selection is nice and there is a full bar.

    Wonderful experience from the appetizers through dessert ! The escargot appetizer is excellent, and presented uniquely on delicious toasted baguette - with a flavorful sauce. Red snapper with lump crab is a must to order. The evening special was suckling pork with white beans. Also outstanding. Service and wine list excellent. And lastly, ambiance was delightful, adding to entire experience! All in all, a great place for a romantic dinner or a family celebration!

    Excellent meal as always. We feel the waiter should have offered us, or at least mentioned, the tasting menu. If we were new patrons, we would not have been aware of the tasting menu. We liked all the courses, except not crazy about the spice in the dessert. All in all, a fantastic meal nonetheless.
