Vinoteca is now our new most favorite Italian restaurant in Houston. Our server was happy, professional and helpful, especially for us as first timers. We had the bruschetta, quail and pheasant... very nice wine list, all were outstanding!!! Cheers

I will be going back but my husband was not crazy about the footd. He had the Osso Bucco and said he had to cut it, most places it falls off the bone. I loved the fish.

Best gem for miles around. I hesitated about which “occasion“ box to indicate, as I I’ve found EVERY time I go, it is indeed a Special Occasion. From the nice valet, to the lovely ladies who greet you, the subtle and attentive support staff and the outstanding waiters, you will have a top-notch experience in the front of the house. And the FOOD?! Read the ingredients, because that’s exactly what you’re going to get: it’s simple, doesn’t need to be fussy when the quality is this good. They’re sometimes able to make small changes, but why bother? Study the Specials, they’re beautifully conceived and presented. Enjoy!

The food was excellent, and my wife and two boys loved what we ordered. The service was very good. The only negative is our table seemed aged and not well kept. A table cloth would have made it nicer.

Go there mainly for the ambiance, but also good food and good service. Flatbread and wine is a great way to start. Main dishes and sides are always good. Haven't tried anything but the dates and mascarpone for dessert - it is fantastic.

I have been twice and have been very impressed both times. The food is not overly complicated, but there are nuances that separate and elevate the dishes over similarly cooked things at other restaurants. Service was very attentive and prices reasonable.

Honestly - the should be trained NEVER to clear a plate until everyone at the table is finished, unless a patron asks. This is standard practice at good restaurants. It is so rude to start clearing the table when someone is still eating. It ruins the conversation flow and put the people still eating under pressure. Train the staff to do things the proper way.

Service, food, and wine were exceptional as usual. Dining room was so loud we could barely hear each other. Yes there was a loud table of young women but they were far from us and even when they were quiet, the room was too noisy. I wish they would open the upstairs during the week since it’d mitigate the noise level. I see they put acoustic tile on the ceiling but it doesn’t help. This is the third time I’ve been with friends and we’ve had to scream at each other to hear one another. I won’t be back during the week. It’s just not a good experience even though the food is to die for. The chairs are very uncomfortable as well. Maybe sit at the bar where it’s less noisy but that’s not the same... oh well. Same issue with Dolce Vita down the street so I guess Marco doesn’t care, know, or know what to do, I dunno. Peccato...

Always reliable. Always good. Fish cooked perfectly. The charcuterie was fantastic, obviously deli quality, not something you get from a grocery store. They make their own bresaola. We love Poscol's.

Thought that food was a little overpriced. Wasn't happy with the young waitperson. He seemed to have a problem when I asked him to clean the table between the salad and the entree.

This is my favorite trattoria in Houston and for anyone we invite it immediately becomes theirs. Poscol is also a salumeria with a delicious variety of dry meats and cheeses, just writing about it makes me crave for it. Poscol is my little piece of Italy in Houston.

An absolutely incredible experience!
The menu options were perfect; plenty to choose from but not overwhelming.
The noise level was a bit intense but it did not take away from the great time my wife and I had. We will definitely return.
