    Hidden gem. If you haven't been here before, there is no time like the present. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the ambience was great for a date night and the food was phenomenal. Portion sizes were spot on as well which allowed room for dessert. We will definitely return.

    We’ve been dining here consistently since it’s opening, over a decade. It’s our family “go to”. Whether it’s just two of us, last minute, on a weeknight, or a group for a planned milestone celebration, we’ve always been quite pleased with the level of service and the outstanding cuisine. Arturo is ever present and passionate about his namesake. Their longevity speaks to the regular high level of quality preparation and performance, day in and day out. Bravo!

    This restaurant is a Houston landmark. It's small and cozy, and intimate. The food is so authentically Italian and high quality. The gelato was even better than what I have ever had in Italy. Everything is fresh and homemade. The chef/owner Mr. Boada is so personable and welcoming to his guests. Dining here makes for a very special evening.

    Very nice evening at this restaurant. Eating out has become so expensive that I do not think many restaurants can garnish 5 stars for value. This being said, the food, ambiance and service matched the pricing. We had a great experience. Everything we ordered was exceptional and the the serving staff was professional. They were able to answer any questions about the cuisine and they were able to make solid recommendations. Who we perceived as the the chef walked the floor to check on every table while we were there. Even the valet was very nice. We will return

We found out about this restaurant through Trip Advisor in March and have brought the family back a few times already! It is now one of our most favorite restaurants in Houston!! The owner is on the floor talking to his customers and the employees are very attentive! The food is outstanding, and I would recommend the raviolis!

    Large party present at center of main dining area, so noise level extraordinarily high. Clearly insufficient wait staff since we left after no attention to our table for fifteen minutes after we were told to seat ourselves as a waiter walked by us waiting at entry. Incredibly cold in dining room. We told the staff we’d changed our minds and did just go due to unpleasant circumstances- a shame because the menu is very appealing.
