We visited Polovina for Easter
We visited Polovina for Easter Brunch. Service was very slow and they ran out of eggs! However, the food was very good and we will certainly visit again...probably for an evening snack of pizza and BYOB wine ($5 corkage fee) on the patio.

Great for Date Night/Girls Night
We came here on a Friday night. There were 4 of us. We orignally came becuaes of the BYOB policy. We all brought some wine and there was only a $5 corking fee. The service was great and there was always someone catering to our needs. We ordered Calamari for an appetizer and it was a large enough amount to share between the 4 of us. We next all ordered salads and mine ( a cesaer) was delicious. We all shared margarita pizzas and i have to say that they were probaly one of the best i have ever had. They are cooked in a brick oven and you can watch them cook your pizza. 2 pizzas was more than enough to share between 4 girls. I will definitely come back here soon.

First time eating here, and we pleased. The food was excellent, and the service was great. We were catching up with friends and never felt rushed or neglected.
We would go back.

Graduation celebration went great!
I looked all over town for a restaurant that would take a large reservation during the lunch hours, and took a chance on the Polovina Italian Cafe. We had a wonderful experience! The table was ready when we arrived. The food was served timely and everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. The very best part though was that we were able to enjoy a leisurely meal, never felt hurried, nor ignored. This was a family event - a graduation - and we all wanted to catch up with each other. It worked out so well.

a Place for This Celiac!
Not only is this place exceptional in many ways, it is educated on special diet needs and made every effort to insure I enjoyed my eating experience. Some of the best gluten free I have ever eaten!!! Thank you Polovina, you are the best in my book!!

My husband was looking for a new place to try and suggested Polovino. We were pleasantly surprised; first by the extensive menu. We started with sausage and peppers and when we asked that the sausage not be sliced they were accommodating. He had rigatoni bolognese with extra sauce and I had a delicious thin crust pizza. We shared an outstanding gelato to end the meal. Parking was plentiful. We would definitely return.

Delightful surprise on Washington
Among the frenetic pace of Washington Avenue is this unpretentious casual Italian cafe. The food was as expected because we had seen some nice reviews by prior visitors. We had a nice pizza with goat cheese as an appetizer and it was great. The entrees were equally good. Service was a bit slow but it was a busy night. Many folks seated outside on the street which you can only do on rare evenings in Houston. The carrot cake which we had for dessert was not up to the quality of the other dishes. Reasonably priced. I would recommend and will try again.

Happened on this cute little Resturant thanks to scrolling Open Table! Super nice staff and delicious food! I had the chicken Romano, my husband the Chicken parmesean, and we shared a nice bottle of wine. Has a very nice neighborhood feel. We will definitely be back!

All attributes of the dining experience were more than acceptable. On top of that, Jennifer our waitress hailing from Brooklyn, added extra verve to a top-10 dining experience. The extra attention she afforded our special daughter was greatly appreciated. We'll be back!
