Palinuro Italian Cuisine
First time here and it was amazing from start to finish. Fresh and delicious food and wonderful service in an intimate setting. We will definitely be back!
Service was phenomenal. Ambience was beautiful, very romantic. Menu limited. The pasta that is popular in the cheese block is yummy, but find the truffle taste was over powering. My husband asked for the white truffle shavings on the side, to determine taste. Keep in mind your required to get shaved truffle with this dish which is an additional $20 for white truffle and $50 for black truffle. The required shavings was a big turn off for this dish. It should be optional. Furthermore, this would be the first Italian restaurant that does not include a side salad with your entree, that’s another disappointment. I had the spinach ravioli, which was good but the pasta was thick and Al dente. I would’ve preferred it be steamed longer, but the flavors were there. Also, the bread served at the table was yummy, but the odd dark green paste that comes with it was salty and actually I’m unsure what it was exactly. Typically you get butter or oil with herbs. We also got calamari as an appetizer, barley fried causing it to be quite chewy but the spicy marinara was tasty.
At the end of the day, the restaurant was authentic Italian but they need to make some tweaks before I will return. Remove the shaved truffle requirement, include a side salad with entrees, and add a few more options to menu that are not pasta. My husband is not a huge Italian person, but I love it, and this restaurant had 1 chicken option, 1 steak, and 1 fish.
Great customer service
We had a great experience! The food was excellent and wine choices were perfect.
Last night was our first time at Palinuro's. The ambience was very nice for a quiet night out. The food and service was outstanding! Roberto was our server and was awesome. Definitely save room for the cannoli :) This was a great find and we'll be returning!
Great service! Great food! Nice atmosphere. Lovely place
Excellent food and service.
Food and service was amazing. I would recommend the Truffle pasta and cannoli for dessert
Awesome. Great food and service. Do yourself a favor: 1) have the sole 2) save room for Gelato
Great authentic Italian food with outstanding service. Highly recommend it!
Have been several times and have been very pleased with food and service (from Roberto specifically!)
Superb food and service as always! Cannot wait to go back.
On of the nicest places I have been. Quiet, lovely, and honestly best food in town.
Table side pasta in the Parmesan wheel was awesome! White truffles seemed over priced. Everything served and the server was excellent!
Best Italian in Katy
We celebrated our daughter’s birthday, we all had a wonderful time and the food and service was wonderful.
Great food and great service
They never disappoint
Very nice Service, Restaurant set up is lovely, Good Selection on Menu
Food and wine were very good, but pricey for the amount. Service was good and atmosphere was very nice.
Great place. We found it while traveling and really enjoyed their great food and service!!
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.
Staff made us feel right at home. Wine recommendations were spot on and the food was beautifully prepared.
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!
