One of Houston’s original restaurants, Birraporetti’s opened in 1974 with the slogan “A great Italian Restaurant…A heck of an Irish bar.” For almost 40 years, Birraporetti’s has been the place to gather on a date, celebrating with friends and family, for happy hour or before or after the theater.
We are noted for our award-winning stone oven pizzas, pastas such as lobster ravioli, & delicious main courses including hand-carved beef filet & fresh seafood. And don't leave without trying our signature Frozen Bellini’s, Irish Coffee, chocolate chip cheesecake, tiramisu, or the berries & cream.
Located in the heart of the Theater District. Steps away from the Alley Theater, Jones Hall, Hobby Center, Wortham, Houston Ballet, Bayou Music Center, Sundance Cinema & a few blocks from Toyota Center and Minute Maid Park.
Open late seven days a week. Join us for Sunday live Jazz Brunch Buffet, Live Music Mondays, or to enjoy our lunch menu for downtown business clients.

Gave us salad but, no silverware. Ordered drinks and had t.o wait too long, each time. Not a good experience for our first time.

We did not know that meant he would not wait on us. Stations at the buffet were not attended; so forget having sliced ham or brisket or a custom omelette. We had to ask for plates to be cleared for the next course. The food was good but we were realizing we needed to clear our tab to walk a block to the theater for the ballet. We had to ask waitstaff to bring our waiter. We had to ask the host at the desk to bring our tab. And then we still had to wait. We paid the tab and got out fast. We like Birraporetti's and go there often, before or after theater, but this time was just horrible service when the restaurant was not packed full.

This place squeezes tables in where ever the can. There are 2 tables in the lobby where people are lined up literally 2 feet away from you. The former sitting area now contains a table. In the elevated section to the left of the front door, they placed tables so close to one another, the patrons sitting back to back are constantly jostled by staff and guest walking through. The food is excellent however.

That everyone eating at 6 o’clock on a Sunday is going to theater should not be a surprise to this location. Nonetheless the kitchen, hostess and servers seemed unprepared. Waits were exceptionally long and little things were missing such as no bread was supplied to the table because the oven was too backed up. Really? Get some sort of a big bread warmer. If you can’t handle the crowd, don’t accept the reservation.

The Pollo Poretti was perfect--two crepes with shredded roasted chicken and herbed cheese, with a choice or red or green sauce, accompanied by a green salad. Light yet filling, this very tasty dish was perfect for late dining. The rest of the menu sounds delicious, and I won't hesitate to come back to try other entrees. An added bonus was a very talented singer doing standards from the last twenty or so years. A wonderful way to end the evening!

Had cheese ravioli with pesto. Was pretty average. Also had a slice of bbq pizza. Again really average. It’s not the worst place to go but it’s nothing bespoke. Olive Garden would have been fine.

The parking garage for Birraporettis is convenient to the restaurant AND the Wortham, although parking spots are noticeably tight and required a 12 point turn when backing out to leave after the show. Birra’s is very popular, and by 6 it was crowded and folks were waiting. One was an elderly couple we could see directly from our table, and several of us felt empathy and sympathy for them as their wait seemed in excess of 20 minutes. I wanted to scoot over in the booth part of our table for 6 to invite them to join us, but my friends chided me that it was impractical. The food was outstanding as was the service. It had been many years since I have eaten there, and it was as good, if not better than I remembered! I would absolutely return!
