The food was very good. I had the Chicken Caesar Salad but what was excellent was the bread and olive oil. Really excellent offering for the table. Nice staff

PRO's: This a Westside Houston tradition that is almost too good to be true. A small Italian/American cafe with reasonable prices, outstanding service and you can bring your own wine. The pizza is excellent, and a variety of beef, chicken and fine vegetarian dishes keeps the place filled with regulars from the surrounding neighborhoods. It's a good place for couples... More

Excellent affordable Italian food! I dine at Palazzo's 3 to 4 times a month. I have never had a bad meal! The pasta dishes and pizza are excellent. My favorite Italian restaurant is Carrabba's at Voss and Woodway but Palazzo's is close second.

Visit here often with my coworkers. we prefer to go after the lunch rush. We always order spaghetti carbonara (it's not on the menu) and it's DELICIOUS!!

I have been going to Palazzos for years. It is a hidden little gem just removed from Westheimer. The Pizza is some of the best in town and the pasta is also very good. They are BYOB too.

Love the chopped salad here. One of the best I have ever eaten and I never go here without having the chopped salad. Must try it! For pasta, the lasagna is excellent as is the spaghetti. It is one of my favorite, authentic Italian restaurants. Service is always good, food is great.

I was going to spend an evening w/ my son and his wife & I told him I'd grab some dinner on the way so no one would have to cook. I special ordered a few of the medium size pizzas and they turned out perfectly! I also ordered two different salads to go with them. Everything was packaged up... More

A friend recommended this place. So glad we went. This is a very cozy restaurant with great food. It is family friendly and can be a romantic place too. We were able to eat dinner and actually hear each other. Some restaurants can get too loud. Everyone was very happy with the dish they picked. Can't wait to return!!
