I love piano music and was delighted when I found Claudio's. What a terrific Italian restaurant! The chicken parm was delicious, and the tomato basil soup, and the pasta and sides. I really enjoyed my meal, and the service was very good too. I sat in the room near the waterfall, further away from the live music, as it was a bit quieter, but I really enjoyed the live music as well. If I lived in the Houston area, I think I'd be bringing my wife here for dinner every week. Thanks for a memorable evening.

Apparently there has been a change in the kitchen staff and there is little interest by the owner on maintaining what was once a go to place to enjoy good Italian food. The bar is the focal point. Very sad.

Was very disappointed in the Easter buffet. The food was not replenished in a timely matter. Had to ask for eggs benedict - our server didn't even mention it to us. The mimosas, though good, were hard to come by also. I felt that the restaurant was not prepared for the crowds they had for Easter and did not have sufficient food for their customers. $27 for all you can eat food and mimosas was way too much for food that wasn't all you can eat.

Had reservations 1045 sat night arrived to find no one at desk stood for 15 min with no one to help music was so loud and people were very rowdy and intoxicated. Not the quiet piano bar we were expecting. The experience was not at all satisfying so we exited and left without tasting your menu,or hearing a soft piano isn't that the purpose of a piano bar.

Claudios was AMAZING !!! The whole experience was perfect and outstanding especially the service. The music and the view made every moment increadably romantic. My husband is not the type to listen or be seen in this type of place but he felt comfortable enough to be himself. We LOVED the food!!. Every section was new and exciting and the flavors were to die for. Hats off to the chef at Claudios. Thank you for our Valentines Day dinner. Can't wait to go back in March for my Birthday.

Clauidio's is one of our favorite local restaurants. I chose Claudio's for Valentine's Dinner, because I knew we would not be disappointed. My Wife had Veal Piccata, my Daughter had Chicken Marsala, and I had the Flounder. All of our dishes were delicious. Service was a tad slow, but that's expected on Valentine's weekend. The live music was nice, and the homemade dishes were wonderful. And last but not least, the seafood bisque appetizer was delicious, delicate and creamy. We will keep coming back to Claudio's, again and again.

Informed after seated that the menu was fixed because of day before Valentine's Day. Promptly served basket of stale bread. After requesting was served adequate warm bread. Asked for a wine list and after making a selection was told it wasn't available. Our server was pleasant but was slow and not very available. The food we selected from the fixed menu was fairly good and was served hot but the meal was hardly worth the $50 per person.

Recommended by a friend. Good food, dancing, Claudio sings and the Playlist was perfect for us! Our wait service was very disappointing. Could see the other servers around us very engaged and talented. Probably an isolated incident but we won't chance it again for a while...she was that off putting. Great bar staff-sweet and engaging.

Had the worst time at Claudio's the other night. Went out for a bite as a couple. Service was nearly non existent. I counted the times the waiter walked by and never stopped. He could have sold more drinks and food to us, but we were tired of waiting around for him. My drink was empty for at least 30 minutes and we waited for a check for 20 minutes after we were finished eating. This contrasts to our good experience on a different occasion. Maybe we just got stuck with the wrong waiter. However, I never saw a floor manager checking up on things.

The food was very good; the music wonderful. I love it here and can't wait for a romantic evening out again with my husband.
I would suggest if you are with people who want to talk - eat in the dining room, not the bar. The music is loud (and fantastic) so it's hard to hold a conversation.

I ordered Claudio's Chioppino seafood dish off the menu primarily because it included Dungeness Crabs. Much to my chagrin, Claudio's served me Snow Crab legs instead! I deffinately feel that I should have been forewarned of the change in the menu. Also, the dish was over loaded with squid as opposed to fish, scallops or shrimp. When I complained to my waiter about the discrepancy nothing was provided in the way of an explanation or any consideration given whatsoever. The wine was great however!

Service and food was just okay. We have eaten here many times but this time was not that good. We asked for a manager at some point and had another server come talk to us instead. If there was no manager on duty, I'm guessing that was part of the problem. I'm not sure how you can correctly run a restaurant without a manager.

Our group came here on a Thursday night. The place was fairly busy. They offered a buffet, but the choices were limited, so we all just ordered off of the menu. Everyone enjoyed their meal. They had live music that night and the group was pretty good. This is a slightly older crowd, with most of the patrons being 50 or over. Nothing wrong with that, just giving you a feel for the vibe. Overall we had a good experience.

In the dining room, the food was excellent and the service was great. Our table ordered starters, soups, salads, pasta and veal dishes and everything was very good. Our only complaint was the live music in the bar. The noise level would have been acceptable if the music was good, but the two singers they had were awful, so it was closer to karaoke than live music. They would be better off with a DJ.

very first time in the area and we were looking for a nice place to celebrate my husband's new job. Food was good, not amazing but very good. Typical Itanlian restaurant. Service was good. Best part was the entertainment. It said piano bar and I was thinking more Billy Joel song. We were mistaken!! We were able to dance (ballroom, touch dancing) between courses!!! SO FUN! can't wait to go back

Claudia's has moved many times but this is the best location and set up ever. The one side is quite for your dinner and then you can move into the lounge area and listen to the great piano music. During good weather (most of the time) they have an outdoor area to enjoy your cigar and feel the night breeze. The service is great, not too much, but always there when you need them. The Oysters on the half shell are great and for $12 a dozen you can't go wrong except on Wednesday nights they are $7 and that is a steal.

We have dined at Claudio's several times now, and have experienced consistently excellent and authentic Italian cuisine at its best. On our last visit we tried the Veal Marsala along with our other two favorites; Tagliolini Al Frutti Di Mare, and Gnocchi Alla Salsa Rosa. On this last visit, I requested my Taglioline to be made with the Salsa Rosa. Wow, is all I can say. The Salsa Rosa made my seafood dish even better, which I did not think possible. The dance floor on the other side of the dining room was very lively and vibrant. Yet we dined at leisure in the serene dining room. Claudio's just seems to get better and better, on each visit. We love this place.

This was our fifth dinner at Claudio's, and I have to admit that I love it more and more each time we come. The fresh homemade pasta is the star of the show at this League City restaurant. But certainly not to be upstaged is the wonderful homemade bread, very good wine list, great service, live music, and dancing. It's very difficult to find a restaurant these days that includes both excellent food, live music, and a dance floor. I opted for my favorite dish here, the Tagliolini al Frutti di Mare, otherwise known as pasta with fresh seafood. Each time I order this, it seems to get better and better. They seem to have perfected the delicate sauce to another level, on our most recent trip. It includes fresh clams, mussels, shrimp, scallops and calamari. I absolutely love it. My wife loves the fresh Gnocchi alla Salsa Rosa; fresh homemade gnocchi pasta in a wonderful creamy tomato sauce. Our daughter has attended with us on the last two visits, and now gets "Claudio cravings" for the fresh pasta. We are definitely becoming repeat customers at Claudio's.

This place is based on being an Italian type restaurant that also offers seafood and steak. All the food was quite average which is disappointing since the price of an average meal is about $25. All food selections were supposed to come with grilled vegetables and homemade ravioli!! That sounded good, but on this Saturday night we received our meals with a "half ball" of mashed potatoes.... From an Italian restaurant? We asked our waitress and she said it was the chef's choice even though the menu only mentioned the homemade ravioli. I dont go to Italian for what tasted like instant mashed potatoes. Crazy to think that is an acceptable replacement especially for the cost of the meals. We ended the night with Creme Brulee and it tasted like a hard crusted vanilla pudding. There was no vanilla bean and no other exquisite flavors that separate Creme Brulee from pudding. The ambiance is really nice, just a shame the food was so lackluster.

When we first arrived we were thinking of all the people we could invite in future occasions. By the end, we decided to never visit this place again. Quite the shame.
