Pizzeria

CandelariÕs, in Houston, puts a fresh and inventive spin on classic Italian cuisine, making irresistible dishes in its warm and welcoming eatery. For an ideal start to your meal, enjoy the roasted cauliflower with parsley and pine nuts and the crispy pork belly with lemon, garlic and spinach for your appetizer. Some of CandelariÕs house specialties include the chianti beef filet with roasted shallots, the shrimp Bianca capellini angel hair pasta with roasted peppers in white wine sauce and the fettucine alfredo con pollo with grilled chicken and mushrooms in a creamy sauce.

Diners also adore CandelariÕs pizzas. The most popular pie varieties include the veggie, loaded with feta cheese and a slew of roasted vegetables on a wholegrain crust and the deep-dish Wrigley topped with Italian sausage, provolone, spinach, mushrooms and tomatoes, all of which are made even better accompanied by a cold craft beer.

Very disappointed, it might have to do with it being the night before Easter and the regular kitchen staff wasn’t working.

The calamari was over cooked and both pizzas were too. Not enjoyable.

It was a family gathering before Easter. We usually go to the store in Holcombe, where the food is excellent. I assume the Washington location would be the same. It wasn’t. A waste of money for over cooked food.

Soggy crust pizza. Too much sauce, barely any spaghetti on the dish I had. Finished the pasta in about 4 forkfuls, and had more than 1/2 cup of sauce left. Mentioned to waiter, lukewarm response and no action taken (attitude was "eh, so what?!?".

The deep dish pizza was good but came out the first time still a bit cold. They cooked it more and then some of crust was burnt. We asked for bill adjustment since they did not offer.

Service was slow and the food was not that great. They were having a big party that night, so that probably led to the slower service.
