A word from Trevisio
Much like the Trevi Fountain in Rome for which it is named, Trevisio is unique and distinctive, and like no other Houston restaurant. Conveniently located for those who work, visit and live near the Med-Center and Museum District, Trevisio has been lauded for its food and
décor, and is a popular venue for private functions of all sizes and varieties. The menu is decidedly Italian with contemporary accents and modern sensibility. Under the direction of Executive Chef Jon Buchanan, the kitchen turns out classic Italian dishes as well as innovative
creations, all made with the freshest ingredients and artfully presented. The restaurant’s wine & spirits program is headed by award-winning Sommelier Sean Beck and perfectly complements the cuisine. Trevisio’s adjacent state-of-the-art conference center accommodates functions of all sizes and descriptions, for groups of five to 500. Trevisio also offers off-site catering.

Diner Reviews
  • "First impressions on a first date. I have been many times to this restaurant it was the first time for my date. She was impressed with the menu as she is a vegetarian, but actually ordered off the regular menu. The place is classy and yet casual at the same time. Service is outstanding without being over bearing."

  • "Overall the food, atmosphere, and location was great. The service was decent, I think it would benefit Trevisio to train their wait staff to be more attentive and responsive to it's guest. The food was really good, I had the Red Snapper and loved it."

  • "Great ambience, good food, but poor service. Waiter did not regularly check up on our table and had to be hailed whenever we needed anything at the table. It took over 30 minutes to get our checks, pay, and then get our credit cards and change back."

  • "This was me & my wife's 1st time to dine here. We went for Valentine's Day, which also happened to be our 27th wedding anniversary. The pre-fixed menu items were well presented & we enjoyed each course. We received excellent service from all of the wait staff. Just wish the floor plan was a little more cozier."

  • "The staff is simply amazing! They try to accommodate in every way possible. However... they couldn't. The reviews did warn that the environment is a bit conference-y and...... it is. We thought surely any place can be intimate if you just dim the lights...their lights don't dim. Not any of them! Valentine romance shomance... nothing is romantic when you have full blaring lights on you. The view is not a view of the city as we thought the description said, it is a window to the walls of other hospitals. The "top" floor is only the 6th floor, so you are not very high up at all. The starters were PHENOMENAL!!! The main course was so so, the risotto a bit too heavy and overcooked, the desserts were hit or miss. MIne good, my wife's not."

  • "I wanted to take my wife somewhere sepcial for Valentine's Day. The meal was good and the ambience was nice, but the service was a bit odd. I did not have any silverware, napkin or side dish and had to request it from the waiter. My soup came without a spoon and I had to request that too. We asked if certain dishes were available and the waiter proceeded to read us the menu. He was a bit pushy. Overall it was a good experience, but the service was not as smooth as one would expect from an upscale restaurant."

  • "Trevisio has always been a special place for us - we had our wedding reception there. It holds great memories, but, in general, Trevisio continues to disappoint. The service continues to be lacking, and the food, while good, isn't spectacular. Attention to detail is lacking - on the evening of February 13th, the Valentine's menu was already inserted into the menu. When I asked if it was available, I was told, somewhat rudely, the "It's not Valentine's Day yet". The decor, hasn't changed since Trevisio opened over 12 years ago,and is getting a bit dated, and worn around the edges. It's still a nice place for lunch, if you work in the Medical Center, and I'm sure we'll be back, if only for the memories."

  • "Me and my lady friend had dinner here and the service was nice, the food and drinks were delicious. One thing I would have liked would have been a little classical music playing in the background. I think that would have made the ambiance a bit nicer. Overall, great place."

  • "I wanted to plan a date night for my Fiance and wanted to try something new. I went to Trevisio before Prom in high school, 9 years ago and only remembered that it was a really nice restaurant. We went and the food was AMAZING! He doesn't usually love Italian but he enjoyed his meal to the fullest! He had the Eggplant Parmesan and I had the Margherita pizza. It was unlike any other pizza I've ever had before!"

  • "After the Impressionist exhibit at the MFAH we had dinner at Trevisio. The food and service were wonderful. We will return. Ambiance was a bit institutional. Appears to have been designed for very upscale business fine dining venue and conference dining venue. That's not at all offputing; it;s just not the "romantic little place". Their crab dishes are superb. Try the crab cake appetizer, the crab risotto, and the "trouta", parmesan crusted trout, tomato-basil lemon butter, spinach, penne marinara. Prices are very reasonable for the quality, service. Hard to find until your first visit, then easy; parking garage under the building. A hidden gem for lunch or dinner in the Houston Museum District."

  • "We ate here for an early dinner before Zoo Lights and were awed by the beautiful view, atmosphere, and wait staff. We had a baby and they never blinked as we tried to entertain her. The food was wonderful and the menu had something for everyone, from the meat eaters to the vegetarians to the fish lovers. Desserts and coffee were also special. Lovely location for a special occasion and my daughter put it on the list for Valentine's Day."

  • "Everything was top notch. I love restaurants that cater to a wide variety of palates and food options (vegetarian, vegan, gluten free). The food was delicious and the wine was very good. Our group was able to talk and enjoy our 4 hour dinner without hounding and haggling. The location is beautiful. Thank you for accommodating us so well."

  • "Visiting houston for one night and received this recommendation from local who said this was a must dine restaurant in Medical Center area. Not a soul in the restaurant. We were the only table in a very expansive dining room and were seated against a wall next to a double banquet door. Medical Center skyline view nice. Food lack luster. Lamb entree extremely tough. Server told us all the doctors on vacation, so that is why restaurant empty. Very uncomfortable feeling to be the only table in such a large dining room. Felt like dining in a hotel ballroom."

  • "Had been wanting to try Trevisio for a number of years and finally took the HRW menu as an opportunity. We had a very nice evening and I can unreservedly recommend Trevisio should you find yourself in the Medical Center for any reason. The bar was bustling between 6:30 and 7:15 as the remnants of their Happy Hour specials wound down. Once that crowd left, the dining space was fairly quiet amongst the 6 or 7 tables of diners. Floor to ceiling windows that look out upon the Medical Center make for a very nice view. The food was good though not great. The arancini was more cheese than risotto and I was hoping for the other ratio. The risotto with shrimp and mushrooms was very good and a substantial portion. Nice varied wine list too"
