My husband and I were visiting from Seattle and had such a great experience at Da Marco. I usually don’t write reviews but I went specifically for the uni and crab spaghetti and it did not disappoint. The uni was very apparent and not drowned out by cream. The crab was perfectly de-shelled and the chili was the perfect spice. Theirs was by far the BEST uni dish that I have ever had! It is truly a must try. My husband ordered the sweet corn ravioli and lobster and that was also a marvelous dish that was executed very well. We will definitely return the next time we are in town if not again before we leave.
My husband and I went for our anniversary. I think it's the best restaurant in town. The service and food is always perfect. I have never had anything but a wonderful experience here.
The food is very good. One tip to know is that they do not serve cocktails. So, know your wines before you arrive!
Great food,presentation, service and atmosphere
We eat here almost weekly- nearly always try the daily specials. Attentive and great service. Sometimes the constant water and wine pouring is a little intrusive. The food is top notch, simple but very flavorful.
One of the very best in the city. Excellent in all respects
We arrived for dinner early but were seated 45 minutes after reservation time, that's really bad at any restaurant, but completely unacceptable at a place where you're going to spend $150 to $200 per person, even worse considering the complete joke of a "bar" or "waiting area". Food was OK but for the price and completely ridiculous markups on the wine, I will not be back, not even if was going to be seated in a timely fashion. I just don't get why people put themselves through this charade of a place.
Da Marco has been neglected in recent surveys of Houston's best restaurants. This is a crime. Not merely is it one of Houston's best restaurants; it's one of the best restaurants in the country. The friend we hosted at the restaurant has spent several years in Italy, and assured it that it was the equal of the very best restaurants at which she has dined there.
Es la segunda vez que vamos, la comida responde al concepto de los buenos restaurantes italianos donde el producto es tan importante como la preparación.
Los meseros están bien capacitados aunque presionan un poco para vender los especiales del día que son mucho más costosos que los platos del menú.
El lugar es anticuado y pasado de moda, pero las mesas están correctamente montadas.
No tienen permiso para vender alcohol, sólo vinos, y se extraña un aperitivo o una grapa al final de la cena.
Sin embargo, es el mejor que conocemos en la zona de los museos de Houston.
It was a fantastic experience that left me with nothing but admiration for the craftsmanship, authenticity and delicate table-side etiquette that one expects from a restaurant of such high caliber. Da Marco provides a level of service unseen in many establishments. The staff continuously set a high standard for fine dining which is an experience I will never forget.
