This is the best Italian food outside of Italy! We have dined at Palinuro twice now and both times have exceeded our expectations. They offer a true Italian dining experience. All of their pasta is made in house and is so delicious. Every course we ate was spectacular and I cannot wait to come back to try more!
It was our first visit there and we will be back. The food was delicious & well presented. Overall we’re glad we tried it.
The food it’s amazing and the service outstanding love love the place!!!
Food was amazing and service was outstanding. We love dining here!
OMG the food here is outstanding. I had the dover fish & husband had the ravioli. The mascarpone limoncello is a MUST. Excellent service. Very nice, cozy restaurant. Will definitely be back very soon.
Our meal was fabulous! Hats off to the chef. Service was impeccable. Loved it! We'll be back!
I love the food and the “Torta de La Nonna” Delicius!!!
Excellent pasta, freshly made. Great wines.
There a few good Otslian restaurants in
Menu has a great variety of dishes without being overly busy or large. Food was delicious and attractively presented. Sound carries throughout the relatively small dining room, making the atmosphere more “lively and bubbly” rather than romantic and cozy. Garlic lovers should try the linguine with clams - a generous amount of shaved garlic slices throughout the dish really spice things up!
Restaurant very nice! Good service! However portions are small and food is marginal! Much more expensive then some other local Italian restaurants
This is the best authentic Italian food you will find in Katy. The staff and chef are Italian. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to treat you special. After living in Katy for 9 years I was disappointed that I could not get authentic Italian food. At Palinuro the pastas and sauces are made perfect southern Italian style, which is a tasty and a healthier way to prepare food. They don’t put a bunch of sugar and cream in their tomato sauces which they taste like what I grew up with in Italy, they taste great and aren’t rich. I recommend trying homemade parapadella pasta with the Bolognese sauce and everything else on the menu is good too.
Food and service very good. Value good, but the night we were there were several large (5 or greater) parties and the noise was very loud, making it difficult to talk
For a new restaurant it was really well run. Pasta was clearly homemade and fresh. Service was very good (the owner works tables, which can be a very good thing in terms of service) ... owner was very helpful with wine and food selections. Food prices were a little on the high end but well within reason. Wine prices and selection were very good. So combined value was very good.
Overall no complaints at all - even the drive from Houston was manageable because its location is accessible from the west park tollway.
Make reservations though ... the dining room is smallish but i suspect he will be expanding as he becomes more successful.
We will be back again, and bring friends.
Wonderful meal all 4 enjoyed will return
Enjoyed our first experience at Palinuro. Food and service very good. Wine recommendation was excellent. Will be back !!
First time at Palinuro. Overall good place to have a dinner outside the house. Would not recommend for date-night perse. Food was great. Nice bread to start with, much more "real" Italian than the typical Americanised "Italian" you get in restaurants. Definitely a plus. Wine was nice, not mind-blowing. Great service and very energetic and hospitable waiter. Ambiance very dependent on where you sit in the restaurant. Not the cosiest ambiance in general but we had the table next to the bar...where they had the TV on ... and folks talked loud... That needs improvement. Otherwise good place to have a bite out, especially if you are a local and need a good meal. We drove 30 mins to get there, wouldn't do that again.
This place dishes up authentic Italian cuisine. It really is one of the best Italian restaurants around. Do yourself a favor, make a reservation and go!
Absolutely delicious! The ambiance and the food was amazing. We truly enjoyed the service. We’ve been recommending this place to all of our foodie friends.
Good food, good service and good value. Relatively new restaurant, only open about 6 weeks, and still working out some kinks, but worth going to
Food was good but their service was very poor. Lack of attention from waiter. Long wait to be served and actually place an order. When food arrived no offer for cheese on our plates. We dared to order dessert and it never got there so we ask for the check then we got the dessert. It looked like our table was not assigned to anyone.
We felt welcome from the second we arrived at the restaurant. The owner passionately explained the menu and specials. We decided to get the Burrata as an appetizer. We have not had a better Burrata in any other restaurants. Creamy, silky and tasty describe the dish the best. I had the rib eye and my wife the salmon. Both dishes were seasoned and cooked perfectly. The staff was very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. We also never felt rushed. All in all a perfect evening in Palinuro.
Fresh, well-prepared Italian food. Run by a wonderful couple. The husband grew up in Italy and has significant restaurant experience. We told them--their food tasted just like what we had experienced in our visits to Italy.
