Palinuro Italian Cuisine
Fabulous food, service, and wine.
Excellent food and ambience, very happy to have chosen this location for our anniversary. The service was attentive but not intrusive. We will certainly be returning for other celebrations.
Was so pleased to find this jewel in Katy! The Pappardelle all Bolognese with homemade pasta was amazing! It's a must try.
Fun and service wonderful!
Great food and wonderful service
Great food and great dining experience. Two teens with me and they loved their meals. Gabe is a cool dude.
Food was great, service was excellent. Noise level was probably not usual due to extraordinarily loud party
The food was really good. So nice to find this gem in our neighborhood. We had calamari, parpadelle bolognese, chicken with artichoke, and the best tagliatelle with truffle. The best tagliatelle I’ve ever had and much cheaper than in other places in Houston. They were very generous with the black truffle. The bartender chose a really nice red to go with the pasta too. We will definitely be back. So glad they were able to survive opening during COVID.
I picked this spot because of its proximal location near my boyfriends parents place in Katy, Texas. I was expecting a standard Italian meal but we received so much more. The staff were incredibly fun and kind and made the experience that much better. The staff are truly passionate and proud about their food and ambiance.The food was wonderful and I would highly recommend getting the truffle pasta out of the authentic Parmesan cheese wheel. Truly bellissimo ❤️ this may be our new staple Italian spot ❤️
What a fantastic place! The food is divine and the service is impeccable.
Outstanding food and wonderful service. Can’t wait to return which will be soon.
Best mussels my husband has ever had, the lamb chops were also delicious. The service is always excellent, Jorge is so friendly and attentive!
We love this place! Frequent cuatomers
We love Palinuro! It is our to go place for real Italian food, nothing else compares!
Always very good. Quality of food and service are first rate.
Absolutely loved the food and of course my favorite was the Truffle Cheese wheel pasta!!
Roberto our waiter was awesome and very attentive! My kids loved the game he showed them!! Great dinner celebrating our anniversary!!
I made a reservation for 6 and they sat us at the smallest table possible. They seated us at a table for 4 and then put 2 chairs on the end. We were so cramped and eating over each other. It kinda put a damper on everyones mood. It was so annoying, playing musical dishes every time, someone ordered a drink or appetizers., and when we got our food, my friend had to put her appetizer plate on the floor. Also, we wanted to split the check between 3 of our cards, 2 couples each and the waiter was like, it will take to long to split! I’ve worked in the service industry for over 18yrs and u can split a damn ticket, 3 ways!! The food is good, but definitely not worth the price tag!! I won’t be going back.
I love this place. Friendly service and fantastic food.
The food, staff and overall restaurant was all amazing! I look forward to dining here again!
Enjoyable evening for our family. Our waiter, Roberto, was attentive, as well as the owner, who stopped by our table twice. Our selections were delicious, ‘tho would have liked a little more flavorful sauce on the steak. Recommend trying this little reminder of Italy!
Food was great. Our server Roberto was fantastic. They were sold out of what I wanted and I had a hard time deciding what I wanted after that. Roberto said “let me make you something and if you don’t love it we can try something else” I agreed. He brought me out a plate of spaghetti (I’m sure they have a fancy name for it) and if that wasn’t THE MOST AMAZING SPAGHETTI I HAVE SVER HAD! Super impressed. Can’t wait to go back!
Authentic Italian food. Best I’ve had in the area. Roberto was great. Everything was fresh and tasty. We all had different dishes and everyone loved their food from appetizers to dessert. It’s small and nicely decorated. I’m sure on the weekend you would need a reservation. Definitely will be back
Great food great service, owner very friendly. Will absolutely return.
It was a great experience! The food was awesome!! My only complaint was it was very noisy inside.
First time here the food and service were amazing!! We will definitely be back.
1st visit to Palinuro and the food and service were outstanding!

Everything from beginning to end of our Anniversary was perfect. Our waiter was amazing and very personable.
Another visit, another wonderful dinner. The meals, Chianti, and service were excellent.
Five star food and off the chart great service. We thoroughly enjoyed everything and will be back often.
Food and service was fabulous. We have been looking for a great Italian place in the Katy area since our favorite place closed 2 years ago. The food was wonderful, and one of the only places we found that actually has seafood like in Italy. We love Italy and this place just brought back so many memories with the food. Definitely a great find and we will be back again.
We had our daughters wedding rehearsal dinner at Palinuro and I have to say that it was spectacular! They closed the restaurant and had the tables set for maximum conversation and ambiance. The food was amazing and Gabriel, Roberto and the crew went so far above and beyond it was beautiful. Very memorable experience and we are appreciative they made the occasion so special. You have created fans for life.
I am completely wowed by this place! Everything we had was AMAZING! We will definitely be back. Owner was great too!
We've been to Palinuro several times, and every dish is cooked to perfection. We especially love the pasta in the cheese wheel. Be sure to make reservations, they are always full when we are there.
Food and service was amazing. The owner is so welcoming. Will be making this place a regular.
Everything was amazing. We will be back.
The food was excellent. Perfectly prepared and presented. Lasagna was one of the best I have ever had. The Sea Bass was cooked perfectly. Service was attentive and they staff was very COVID conscious. Definitely on our short list when we want a leisurely fine Italian upscale dinner.
Great place to go for special occasions.
Palinuro is a gem! The service is outstanding and the food is excellent! The food is truly authentic Italian, as well as the chef and wonderful staff. Go! You won’t be sorry!
We love going to Palinuro, they always make us feel so welcomed and special. Roberto and Gabriel are awesome and Palio, the chef, brilliant! My husband loves their lamb chops, always delicious!
