Great menu items with traditional Italian dishes as well as more standard fare. I had the Snapper Florentine (perfectly done 6 or 7 oz. thick slice of Snapper on a bed of spinach) with a side of veggies (instead of pasta). Our other two diners had more traditional Italian dishes - Fettuccine Alfredo w/grilled chicken and a Chicken Piccata w/lemon-caper sauce. All were delicious, hot and well-presented. Service was excellent, even for a Friday evening at 6:00 PM. We didn't have pasta this good in Italy on a recent vacation trip!

Went with family for a special event. We had a two year old and a five year old with us. They behaved like little champs. I am sure that the owners were a little apprehensive when we came in but after seeing how well behaved they were the owner kept coming over to talk to us and complimenting us on the children. The waitress was wonderful, never had to ask for anything, she was there when we needed her but never intrusive. As usual the food was amazing. Nice neighborhood restaurant but not lacking in ambiance and great food.

Pleasant surprise: the restaurant anchors a strip center in Katy, just passed Westpark Tollway and 99. The place is small and is only open for dinner. The food and service were top-notch. The hostess was very nice, the waiter efficient, even the owner made his way to the table to thank us for visiting. At he of the day, it's about the food: great ! No bar, so the only area to wait or hang for a bit is the front entrance patio. Worth the drive.

Been there many times. Always good, surprisingly good for a small suburban spot. Family owned and you can feel it. Better than anywhere else for miles. Great from appetizers to deserts. I've tried many high dollar places that aren't nearly so accomplished.

First dining experience here for our wedding anniversary and it was fantastic. We originally learned of this place from the owner's son Christo who also runs a Greek restaurant further north in Katy. We ordered the Ravioli al Aragosta (lobster ravioli) and the Frutti di Mare (seafood and pasta) and both dishes were full of flavor. There was lots wine options as well. Service was excellent and consisently at the right moments during the whole visit. We tried the Italian Wedding cake for dessert and found it very pleasant. Overall ambiance is great and for couples and I recommend you try the center seating area to give you a little separation from the rest of the restaurant. We definitely will be returning to this restaurant and feel the quality of the food is excellent. I would pick this place over many other Italian restaurants in the area.

A lovely Italian get away in Katy. I would give higher ratings but we were one of the first parties there for dinner and were sat against the “wine wall.” Not a problem until you looked in the shelves and saw they were in dire need of cleaning - didn’t appear to have been dusted in a very long time. Then, throughout our meal, multiple wait staff leaned over us to retrieve bottles of wine . At $20-30 per entree you expect the place to be clean and your meal to not be interrupted by armpits - especially when there were ample available tables.

Ceasar salad was okay, not great. It's more of a house salad and then ceasar. Marsala could use a little bit more seasoning. Restaurant was warm and we asked for the AC to be turned down. It never cooled.

Your chef Chris recommended this place because my husband and I were having an upcoming 27th Anniversary and also his birthday. We love Italian food but there isn't a close enough spot to drive towards.
So the big day came and we got all dressed up and upon entering the place we were promptly greeted with a big smile from the gentleman at the hosts booth. We were seated and I notice the quiet atmosphere and dimly lit area - it made for a cozy, romantic ambience.
I love the flowers and the candles and especially the music. You don't hear enough Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra.
The food came out in a timely manner and you can taste the love and the hard work that went into making both the meals. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!! Everything tasted fresh and mouth watering.
We were given a surprise desert for our occasion - even though we were full we manage to eat at least half and of course that was delicious.
I definitely would highly recommend (and I already have) this to everyone I know.
We hope to do this again near the future.
